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.”

Saw this article in NYTimes this week about “Cakes Gone Wrong” and a website called “Cake Wrecks.”  Then I came across this particular cake, and I was totally baffled then I read the original cake order.  I’m sure it was intentionally screwed up for a good-laugh sake and I would have to say I was slightly amused.

Read a cool snip about this guy who built his house around a tree in NYTimes.  John and I have been house hunting for the past year, maybe longer.  This is why I love the houses in LA and hate the homes here.  No character and no depth to them at all….
