11 large Andy Warhol paintings were just stolen from a Los Angeles home. Via AJ. Seems like the kind of thing the ghost of the man himself would have orchestrated – or perhaps even some pranksters in his spirit.
To divert us from all this maudlin poetry/music, today, in the Valley (the valley so low), it is one hundred and five degrees, and one of my family’s cactuses died from the heat. That’s right.
From GoogleMaps: A massive brush fire, dubbed the “Sayre Fire,” has flared up in the hills above Sylmar. The entire area north of the 210 Freeway and north of the 5 Freeway near the State Route 14 interchange is under evacuation orders, extending east to Hubbard Street and Pacoima Canyon. The 210 Freeway has been closed in both directions between the 118 and the 5 freeways.
Created much-needed “Los Angeles” category with this post.
