Heard about a tour that focuses on LA Gangs on NPR this afternoon.  I know this is something that I personally wouldn’t want to do.  It made me wonder who would want to go on a tour like this.

Then I read the NY Times article.  And here’s the first paragraph:

“LOS ANGELES — The tour organizer received assurances, he says, from four gangs that they would not harass the bus when it passed through their turf. Paying customers must sign releases warning of potential danger. And after careful consideration, it was decided not to have residents shoot water guns at the bus and sell “I Got Shot in South Central” T-shirts.”
