Crenshaw Light Rail of the Future

The Los Angeles Times reported (but you heard it first at the the LP Village visioning meeting earlier this month) that there are very preliminary plans to have a train coast down the boulevard all the way to LAX. How great would that be to have an easy way to get to the airport? I've taken a $30 cab, a $3 bus, bummed rides from friends and of course… Continue

The Over 40 Guide to Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Times asked "four randomly selected people in different parts of the city who are

not quite juniors and not quite seniors" to describe

their favorite weekend.



Of course, Leimert Park made the list. Lawrence Ross, a writer, talked about Rick Kingi's Kajukenbo Defense Institute, Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, Coley's Caribbean Cuisine on Florence and La Brea,… Continue

Lucy Florence tops list of places to see in LA

Conservative blogger and ornery pundit Cobb - strictly old school - compiled a list of places he'd put on a cultural tour of Los Angeles.



"Lucy Florence

LA meet Leimert Park - Noon to 7 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 12

How can neighbors that have grown up so close to each other be such strangers. Of course that's the case between you and most of your neighbors. Perhaps it's as simple as that between the amazing neighborhood of Leimert Park and with most of the rest of the people of Los Angeles. We just need a proper introduction.



This weekend it's everyone's chance to exchange pleasantries with a place the people will really want to get to know. You can come here and listen to Jazz or blues or hip… Continue

Superhead is coming to Leimert Park

Wow, I just learned that the famed Karrine Stefans will be appearing at Eso Wan bookstore on September 25th to promote her latest book. I am sickened at the moment..I hope you all share in my disgust. This is the problem that I have with this woman.

There was no such message in that book, instead it glorified her sexcapades and in my…
