I knew someone that lived on Whisman street, he grow up in that area. He had a brain tumor a few years ago.

I smell few trial lawyers and a bunch of lawsuits turning into a nice full blown class action lawsuit against the city and perhaps Google. The city went out of its way to pander to Google and googlers.
