From the heart
Phil Proctor of Beverly Hills found a display of holiday cards for A.I.G. executives.
I’ve heard of people having their houses shown in Architectural Digest magazine. I’ve never known any, of course, but I’ve heard of it happening. And what kind of an offer do we get in our neighborhood? As a fellow on my street asked, “Do they think we look like space aliens?”
The Gospel according to Curly Joe?
“I had my 4th graders fill in the blanks to complete a trio of words, such as `Stop, Look and____’” writes teacher Terri Lau of North Hollywood. "Two boys who were working together asked for a Bible so they could look up the answer to `Larry, Moe, and ____.’”
Food for thought
I guess if you took these two Long Beach burger shops’ signs literally there’s no doubt which one you would have to choose.
Barking up the wrong tree
An ex-colleague came across a traffic report involving a breed of dog I had never heard of.
Those Westsiders sure know how to live.
In Santa Monica, I noticed they can even get special service for their luxury bicycles. Pity the poor valets. These vehicles have no radios for them to listen to-no station settings to change.
Show biz backstabbing
You know it goes on. In fact, David Batterson found an ad for such on craigslist.
Here’s a case that could have gone to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A bike-rider showed up at the Long Beach Courthouse to handle a fix-it citation for a bad taillight on his car, the Beachcomber newspaper reported.
Asked by the judge if he had taken care of the problem, the defendant produced paperwork indicating he had had the car demolished.
Yes, but had he fixed the taillight first? the judge asked.
No came the answer.
The judge compromised and let him off with a $20 fine.
