I served on a jury for an assault involving biting that left a permanent scar on the victims hand.Read More It wasn't just a bite but a ripping. This 'bleeding heart liberal' voted for conviction and led the jury to see this as egregious and requiring that we do convict. That's the price of being an adult human being, to do the hard thing when necessary.

the database of town/city names is being flagrantly abused. 'nearby ness' of these places hasRead More seemingly lost the context of the state parameter. remember, The Patch is now run/owned/controlled/abused by some guy by the name of Hale, who apparently could give a flea's poop about the end user. http://streetfightmag.com/2014/03/06/new-patch-owner-running-company-in-lean-entrepreneurial-mode/

Kudos. More judges need to speak up, and I bet it will happen, too. Every state should have capitalRead More punishment. Some people are not people; they're evil monsters and have no place here.

Ridiculous. People need to read the book I had to read for my MSW program at the University of IowaRead More School of Social Work, "The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison." Matt Taibbi wrote an update (as wealth inequity and white-collar crime continue unabated and unconsequented) called "The Divide," which says much the same thing, and I'm anxious to read it. Wall Street CEOs can still millions and billions of dollars and not one of them goes to prison. In fact, they're laughing all the way to the bank. Yet this poor schmuck gets a free 89-cent refill and it costs him hundreds of dollars. Maybe things will have to get worse before people wake up and smell the coffee!

Tom G. April 18, 2014 at 09:35 am
Why have the drink fountain accessible to patrons if they aren't allowed to refill? Why not fillRead More the drink behind the counter so there is no confusion? You typically put the fountain out in front of the counter and allow patrons to fill their own cups when there are free refills. This incident is arguably entrapment.

Mike Spilker April 18, 2014 at 09:03 am
This must be why the city stopped allowing Hollywood Tour busses to go up to the sign via LakeRead More Hollywood Dr & Mulholand. Those are all independent companies. Now the city gets the $$$. Interestingly though, the city said the reason they banned the busses, which are actually just vans, was because of weight restrictions on those roads. These streets have 6000lbs limits. Signs are posted everywhere...NO VEHICLES OVER 3 TONS ! The tour busses are 15 passenger vans yet the city says they're taking 21 passengers in their bus. Fair? Of course not!

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 09:35 am
We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.

So far the only complaint I've heard is about how terrible Reagan is. I really hate to tell you butRead More the so called War on Drugs, whether titled that or not, has been going on for a long time before Reagan or Nixon ever came into office. And the jackass party hasn't been behind in enforcing it either. Oh, Eric WithHolder claims he doesn't want to prosecute marijuana offenses - what the hell is the DEA doing here? And maybe you can tell me who has produced the drugs which, along with education about safe practices, has defeated or brought the AIDS problem under control? No, it's not the labor unions of America, Timothy Leary, or little old Madame Curie in her kitchen lab.
Grumpy Old Man April 18, 2014 at 05:54 am
To clarify before someone jumps - the major drug control legislation did come about in 1970 as aRead More reaction to the widespread (both real and perceived) use and abuse of recreational drugs. But opiates were banned from importation, sale and manufacture in 1924 (other than that for medical purposes - morphine is an opiate and a pain reliever which if not administered correctly can and does result in dependency.

I feel bad for the good people that will loose their jobs. The people who should loose their job isRead More the leaders of the company that have made decisions that have caused SCE rates to be one of the highest in the country. Not long ago SCE had one of the lowest rates. There is so much waste on new SCE programs that cost millions of dollars that do nothing except help with someone's presentation.
Allan April 16, 2014 at 06:14 am
Let's see now. LA City starts new trash program which will kill some small business and certainlyRead More result in layoffs. Now SCE going to be laying off 900 plus. Now looking too good there, SoCal.
OldTimer April 16, 2014 at 08:34 am
Well, this is what they call 'progress', folks. Think about it. Not long ago they installed theRead More 'smart meters', right? Well, with 'smart meters' you don't need meter readers, do you? So this has nothing at all to do with democrats or republicans. Let's stop going there. It's about cutting costs with technology. Remember when garbage trucks were 2 man units? I do. Those were back the days when the men manually hoisted the cans and dumped the garbage in the trucks. Well, now the trashing dumping is automated and only a driver is needed. Sorry, folks. That's called 'progress', like it or not. Those layed off garbage men and meter readers need to reinvent themselves and find other work in another industry. But let's not make this political. That's so absurd.

Well, it's been until 10pm or later most of the last six years. I didn't go there last year. TheirRead More phone number is supposedly 818-374-5650, so I'd call them and see if they can confirm or disavow staying until 10 or midnight anymore.
OldTimer April 15, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Yes folks. Keep paying your taxes and voting. You can see how well that formula has worked for usRead More in the past. I might even toss in a tip for Uncle Sam this year and ask him to apply it to more foreign aid. I heard that Ukraine needs some bailout money. Either that or give it to a to a too big to fail bank so that they can pay this year's executive bonuses. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

It was sweet watching the eclipse come into play with the whisping high clouds crossing over theRead More white reflective moon. Then the orange/red hue kicked in and it was awesome.

rubberband April 15, 2014 at 10:28 am
This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
