    A very colorful event in our nation's most culturally-diverse city rife with the texture and patina that emanates from its psycho-social underpinnings that was forged from the potpourri of its residents.

    Well said and precisely what I was thinking, lol.

    (Interestingly enough, that's is somewhat true. When I was a LA City Commissioner I would entertain officials from other countries and their sole purpose was to find an answer, the magic in Los Angeles that allows such diversity without riots every single day.)

    You're right, Gary, I'm always confused between the lions, as in your second shot, & the dragon! Need my 4-year-old to correct me all the time! LoL...
