Another Satisfied Customer

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 19, 2008

...grudges against her because she doesn’t know me to make the comments she does. If I were asked to guess as to the kind of person she is, my initial reaction would be that she is a Michelle Obama-type who thinks America is a downright mean country, lives in a place like South-Central Los Angeles. She attends a church much like Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago pastored by a left-wing radical like Jeremiah Wright or Michael Pfleger who spews white-hating, racist filth from the pulpit on a weekly basis. She is probably a morbidly obese individual with no less than five... (more)

Fancy? No! Fabulous? Yes To Singapore's Banana Leaf

By pleasurepalate, published on Jun 12, 2008

...your best meals can come from somewhere you may not expect. That's why in my search for delicious food, I never judge a book by the cover. In fact, the rattier the book, the better the read and that's an analogy that can definitely be applied to dining out. So if you're ever in the Farmer's Market, drop by Singapore's Banana Leaf for a meal that is not only memorable, but may hardly even make a dent in your pocketbook and you know what that means? More money for gas! :)

May Featured Contributor - Glenn T

By Digidave, published on Jun 9, 2008

How does where you live influence who/what you write about and how you go about doing it?Los Angeles is a city of infinite inspiration, especially if you like to rant. Coming to California is what inspired me to write in the first place. All in the same year, I went from east coast to west coast, from military to civilian, from work to school and from blue-collar to white-collar. At first, all the changes frustrated me, and then once I found my way, I found it all pretty damned funny. My fish-out-of-water point of view was my first writing voice. My first column was entitled “Tales... (more)

It Will Be Lakers Heaven In 7!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 5, 2008

...ready to do battle before the entire world. It’s a story with all of the right characters—from the sage coach (Phil Jackson) to the cagey veteran (Kevin Garnett) to the most talented player since Michael Jordan displaying his incredible skills (Kobe, of course!)

When Los Angeles defeated the San Antonio Spurs in Game 5 of the West finals, Lakers fans were heard chanting: “Bring on the Celtics!” Boston knocked off the Detroit Pistons in six games to make all those wishes come true.

Mexican Travel Guides Wanted..... Earn Up To $270,000 A Day

By Steven Lane, published on Jun 2, 2008

...him Jorge, it's not his real name but I promised, for obvious reasons, that I would keep his personal details anonymous. I have written about first hand illegal border crossings in the past but this story is not just about Jorge's travels from a small town in the Yucatan Peninsula to lovely Los Angeles, California. This bit is a combination of "The Amazing Race" and "Show me the money."

Jorge's journey starts in the Yucatan city of Merida, it's there that he hops on a plane, destination Tijuana, just a couple of miles away from the "goal." As they say, "so close but soooooooooooo... (more)
