CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The Associated Press reports:

A Southern California seaside community is in an uproar after a home was given a new paint job featuring two huge emoji on a bright pink background. Manhattan Beach residents railed against the makeover during a City Council meeting Tuesday night, citing problems with spectators.

The new paint job appeared after neighbors reported the home was being used for short-term rentals and the homeowner was fined $4,000. Owner Kathryn Kidd told KABC-TV she didn’t realize short-term rentals weren’t allowed and she denies the redecoration is retaliation.
