Ah, Monrovia's becoming more and more like L.A. every day.

by the by...true story...on a Saturday, a week and a half ago... stopping for a coke and smokes at the local 7-11...11 am...a drunk, slugging his tall boy...unbuttoned, whipped it out and relieved himself onto the landscape attempt at the aforementioned 7-11 in full view of their god, an adolescent girl, her father and the rest of us. His startling behavior took my focus off the other two bums sucking their juice. Felt just like my old Rampart neighborhood.
