Jesse James May Lose His Place Name

Oh, how the mighty and whitey have fallen off the Long Beach map.

Jesse James brought fame, a showroom and a burger joint to a little corner of town he ran his hot rod shop West Coast Choppers and filmed his old reality show Monster Garage.

In late 2009, the city returned the favor by re-naming Oregon Avenue, which was between Anaheim and 12th streets, West Coast Choppers Place. Like James' reputation as a family man, that could change.

The Long Beach Planning Commission is scheduled Thursday to consider changing the name of West Coast Choppers Place back to Oregon Avenue.

James closed the shop at 718 W. Anaheim St. after his infidelity, divorce from America's sweetheart Sanda Bullock and relocation to Austin, Texas, which allows him to be closer to his ex- and the child they adopted.

The building where much of West Coast Choppers was filmed from 2002-2006 is now owned by a Newport Beach company that plans to flip it.

Mighty Whitey LLC, James' company, still owns another nearby building.

You might think that I'd oppose the re-renaming of the Jesse James street, but I don't. It was stupid naming a street after a celebrity in the first place. In fact, other than presidents, only Cesar Chavez and MLK Jr. should have streets named after them, and then only so it let's us know areas to avoid.

Hey there author, you might want to add in that Jesse Jamesand West Coast Choppers were attacked by CARB (California Air Resources Board)in 2007. They said the choppers he was building didn’t meet their regulations.California government is anti-business so, you might want to add that to thereasons why he escaped to Arizona.

Mighty Whitey LLC... Is that really the name of his LLC?

You don't "give" people a job, certainly not from the goodness of your heart. Otherwise people wouldn't be on the streets as soon as any minor downturn comes.

It's a mutual arrangement for the exchange of, in general, goods and services. You provide labor and expertise, he/she shares profits with you. It's called "capitalism", you might want to look it up. If it's not mutually beneficial it's not going to work.

I have a different rule for where to avoid: suburban streets with non-English names. Rue de whatever? Only if you're in France, Switzerland, Belgium or eastern Canada. Avenida de Insertspanishterm here located in a place where none of the residents can pronounce it? Probably not interesting.

So all those Pulaski streets should be wiped out? Of course, your kind never did like the Poles...

 ...West Coast Choppers were violating California law by manufacturing machines that spewed more toxins than allowed. California government in response to the regions needs and the voters wishes is less anti-environment than other regions, you might want to include that ...

A more accurate portrayal me thinks.

After all, it's well documented how well business protects the environment when left to their own.

I did a quick search and didn't find any source(s) that would be authoritative (County of Orange, State of California, etc.).

I found his name connected with that Llc in the usual types of web sources, i.e., news outlets, business directories, ...

Anyone?

Jesse never "gave" anybody anything, but a hard time, bad lovin', douchebagginess, etc.  Loser.

I don't have the hairy back problem (yet), but I get rogue nostril hairs with increasing frequency. Totally sick.

You guys realize I was riffing on the famous Chris Rock line about what to do if your car breaks down on MLK blvd.  'Run'.

Dave is kind of right. Our Camino Las Ramblas is nothing like the real Las Ramblas.

Office of the Secretary of State, I'll accept that as an authoritative source, nice job Dawn.
