A bumper to bumper car ride on a Los Angeles congested freeway ended in a welcoming atmosphere of music satisfaction at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena on Friday, April 18th, 2008. The dinner crowd sat in a waited patiently for seating. As one entered the dining area gazing to their right, there was a cozy bar area softly beckoning patrons.

...social impact of such a varied news organization as BrooWaHa. Our crack team of investigative reporters stands ready and willing to mash the keys of their computers churning out exposés that rival the fair and balanced news reporting of such established news media as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The San Francisco Chronicle.

...rattles more than just a few teeth along the western seaboard. The quake’s magnitude is an estimate at best because seismic monitoring capabilities were not yet available, but by anyone’s estimate, the quake was massive.

Remember I wrote an article where I laid the murder of Jamile Andre Shaw, Jr., at the feet of L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa? Remember that I said that it was L.A.’s sanctuary city policy that allowed Pedro Espinosa to remain in the city because Los Angeles has an official policy of not helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents locate and deport known illegal aliens? Remember how I said that the reason for this policy was because Villaraigosa was trying to stack his constituency so that he could have the latino community behind him... (more)
