Washington, DC

Like hundreds of millions of Americans, I have been glued to television this weekend watching our "leaders" send all of us into a financial abyss for the next decade. The political banter has been classic. Sad, but classic.
Tonight, Rep. Emanueal Cleaver, a Democratic Congressman from Missouri, and the Chairman of the House Black Caucus called the deal between President Obama and leaders of the House and Senate a "Satan Sandwich."

Are you kidding me?

Hang on. This "dept" deal is far from being settled. Thank you Congressman Cleaver and the Black Caucus for at least wanting to see the "nuts and bolts" before bankrupting America for the next 10 years.  BTW. Congressman Cleaver comes from a historical perspective in America.  He represents the same Congressional district that once head by Rep. Harry Truman.

Give em' Hell, Emanuel!

Shaun White in Utah (2008)Image via WikipediaWould someone give X-Games icon the key to Los Angeles, because as far as I am concern he OWNS this town after his remarkable GOLD MEDAL performance in the Skateboard VERT Final. 

Incredible.

 The Flying Tomato is out of control.

 He makes it look so flipping easy. Not sure how he pulls this off, year in and year out. Shaun White is one of the BEST TRAINED ATHLETES of HIS generation.

 Look what he pulled off at the Nokia on Saturday night.

Inland Empire 


A television news crew from KABC-TV Channel 7 here in Los Angeles has been fired at while apparently doing a "weather segment" on tonight's freaky rain storms out in the Inland Empie.
I just got off the phone with Eyewitness News and they sent me the following statement:

as they were doing a live report. We are grateful no one was 
seriously hurt and we are fully cooperating with police in their 
investigation. Our crews  and reporters are very conscious of good 
safety practices and take proper precautions when on assignment. 
They could not have anticipated that someone would decide to target them in this way.

What the hell is going on in our society when television news crews are fired upon here in Southern California?  More details to follow.  So scary.

Sad news from my next door neighboring community of Buena Park this afternoon.  Officer Daniel Ackerman, 31, a popular members of the Buena Park Police Department has away after participating in a training exercise on Friday.  He died today at St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, according to the Orange County Coroners Office.

Apparently Ackerman was taking part in a training exercise on Friday when he showed signs of being "over exerted."  The Associated Press, Ackerman was a resident of Buena Park, and has been with the BPPD since 2005, but he was active in the departments highly respected explorer and reserve officer programs.  The flags are being flown at half-staff in both La Palma and Buena Park this afternoon in honor of Officer Ackerman.

He becomes the fourth officer in the history of the Buena Park PD to die in the line of duty.

Cropped screenshot of Clark Gable from the tra...Los Angeles, CA


Clark Gable III is out of a Los Angeles jail after having posted a $250,000 bail after being popped for  "allegedly" shining one of those "laser" pointers at an LAPD helicopter Thursday night while he was supposedly cruising in a car in Hollywood.  According to booking records from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Gable, 22 was released after posting a $250,000 bail on Friday night at around 6:12 p.m. He is scheduled to appear in a  Los Angeles courtroom on August 26, (Los Angeles Court, Division 30). Gable comes from "Hollywood Royalty." His grandfather was the biggest movie star in the history of film.  I hope Clark #3 can become a positive force in Hollywood for his generation. No excuses.  Please, Clark, this isn't your first trip through the "legal" rodeo, and you are just beginning your adult "life." Let's hope he doesn't become another "statistic"in the revolving cycle of madness.   


Note to Mr. Gable: If you run across this post, I would love to do a "sit down" interview with you.  I think you have an amazing story that needs to be told....

 LOS ANGELES – A jury today convicted an 87-year-old San Gabriel Valley man of the first-degree ax murder of his wife and the attempted murder of her son two years ago. The jury of six women and six men deliberated about a day and a half before finding James Che Ming Lu guilty of the July 26, 2009, murder of his 55-year-old wife, Michelle, and the attempted murder of her 32-year-old son, Ji Ma Zeng. The jury also found true the special allegations of personal use of a deadly weapon, an ax. Deputy District Attorney Amy Murphy, who prosecuted the case, said Lu repeatedly struck his wife of nine years in the head with an ax as she lay in bed in their San Gabriel Valley home on Rosemead Boulevard. Lu then walked down the hall and tried to use the ax on her son, but the younger man managed to fend off the attack. Murphy said Lu was angry because he believed he spent too much money on his wife and that she spent too much time away from home working. (are you serious?  Spending too much money? WTF?) Lu faces up to life in prison when he returns to court Sept. 7 for sentencing by Judge Clifford Klein.
