Welcome to the neighborhoodSo the ghetto bird has been hovering overhead all morning.  Now the local news vultures are here to feast.

It all started this morning around, I think it was, 5:45 a. m. Pack! Pack! Pack! I say to myself, “Those were gun shots.”

The neighborhood has been a clusterfuck since.  Two major LA thoroughfares closed. The dreaded Fairfax-San Vicente-Olympic junction has been closed about a mile in each directions.  Now the news crews are here and probably will be well into the night.  It’s headline news, baby.
