just another day in la
yesterday on the way to the hospital, there was a roadblock/detour: a man took a pregnant clerk hostage at the mexican consulate just a few blocks away from st. vincent. uh, okay. later, on the way back, there was another roadblock/detour: a car caught on fire, and was ablaze in the middle of sixth street. children, just dismissed from the nearby elementary school, stood around the scene, as if it was a bonfire, and ate ice cream from the van parked in front of the school, or roasted corn from the vendor next to him. mmmmm. toasty!
