You work a 9-80, freelance like us, or maybe you don't have job. Whatever the case is, Councilman Tom LaBonge has something for you tomorrow morning. So be alert and be ready to report to Fire Station 27 in Hollywood for the new First Fridays:

"Growing up in Los Angeles during the Cold War, we practiced drills every first Friday each month as the city's air raid sirens went off. While the Cold War is ended, our need for preparedness hasn't gone away." ~ Tom LaBonge

We all know the Big One will hit. What we don't know is when and exactly where. We have our water and we didn't store enough for you. Sorry.
