Just the facts

After all the sample sale shopping and trick or treating some real work needs to be done.
Please get out there and vote.
From the Voter Guide website:

"There are more ways to participate in the electoral process. You can:
  • Be a poll worker on Election Day, helping to make voting easier for all eligible voters and protecting ballots until they are counted by elections officials;
  • Spread the word about voter registration deadlines and voting rights through emails, phone calls, brochures, and posters; and
  • Help educate other voters about the candidates and issues by organizing discussion groups or participating in debates with friends, family, and community leaders.
For more information about how and where to vote, as well as other ways you can participate in the electoral process, call (800) 345-VOTE or visit
It is a wonderful privilege in a democracy to have a choice and the right to voice your opinion. As you know, some contests really do come down to a narrow margin of just a few votes. Whether you cast your ballot at a polling place or by mail, I encourage you to take the time to carefully read about each candidate and ballot measure—and to know your voting rights.
Thank you for taking your civic responsibility seriously and making your voice heard!
Please check the Voter Guide for the facts on the propositions and candidates."

Street Closures This Weekend.

Police Brutality Protests and 1/2 Marathon To Close Off Downtown Streets This Weekend

By David Markland
Published: Thursday, October 21, 2010, at 05:19PM
Marathon Runners Eric Richardson
There are no indications President Barack Obama's USC visit on Friday will impede traffic in the Downtown area. However, that afternoon a protest march originating at Pershing Square, and a half marathon on Sunday ending at L.A. Live, will create road closures to be aware of.
Tomorrow at 2pm, Pershing Square will be a gathering point for a march to McArthur Park as part of the "National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality," with similar events taking place in other cities.
Associated road closures will begin around 2:30pm along 5th Street to the 110, and on 6th Street all the way to Westlake. Downtown, vehicle crossing points will be maintained at Figueroa and Flower. Roads should reopen prior to 5pm, when a rally is scheduled to take place in McArthur Park.
Speakers at the rally include Mashia Lewis, the mother of James Davis, who was shot and killed by police during a foot chase in Watts last week, and family members of Manuel Jaminez, a day laborer whose shooting death by the LAPD caused unrest in the Westlake area early last month.
On Sunday morning, L.A.'s first Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon will start in Griffith Park and end at L.A. Live.
Runners will be entertained along the route with a new band performing along every mile, and a free post-race concert by the Neon Trees that is open to the public.
Spectators along the course can also enjoy the live music. Rock bands Acidic and 4th will play at the Pay Lot at 201 S. Beaudry. Neverwonder, a pop soul band, performs at 7th and Figueroa. On the corner of 5th and Flower, at the LA Public Library Complex, Hypnotically Enhanced will play funk with classic southern rockers the Retrorockit Band; and at 9th and Hill, Kelly's Lot will cover upbeat blues while Groove Bazaar reimagines 70's funk.
Beginning at 8am, the following Downtown streets will be closed to traffic to accomodate the final miles of the race and finish line activities:
Temple from Edgeware to Beaudry ; Beaudry from Temple to 4th; 4th from Beaudry to S Flower; and S Flower from 4th to 9th will all be closed until 12:15pm. 9th from S Flower to Hill and S Hill From 9th to 11th will be closed until 12:45pm.
From 3am until 3pm, the following are closed: 11th from Hill to Georgia; and both Figueroa and Flower from Olympic to 12th.
Thanks Blogdowtown for the info.

Bomb Scare Prank Briefly Snarls Traffic at Majors Market

From the California Apparel News:
A bomb scare on Los Angeles street slowed traffic around theCalifornia Market Center this morning as police blocked off three streets surrounding the building.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the scare started at 8:06 a.m., when a citizen called and said there was a suspicious package on the corner of Olympic Boulevard and Main Street. The area was declared safe 10:20 a.m.
We’re still waiting for confirmation on the details, but the word on the street is it was a prank and the two perpetrators were soon caught by police. We hear—again, unconfirmed—that there were two suspicious packages found on Los Angeles street, drawing police, the fire department and the bomb square to the heart of the Los Angeles Fashion District. Although traffic slowed to a crawl around the building, the scene inside was calm, if subdued as buyers in town for Majors Market grabbed coffee and headed to the showrooms upstairs. “It slowed down traffic for 35 minutes,” said David Lapidos, vice-president of the Offprice Show, which is concurrently hosting A Taste of Offprice in the CMC’s Exhibition Hall. “But so many entrances to the building were open that the slowdown was not so bad.” —Andrew Asch and Alison A.
