Odds & Ends
- It's all adult entertainment around here today. First, we talked Suicide Girls, now we want you to know that city workers are getting trained to pick out human smuggling victims, many of whom end up in the adult film industry in the San Fernando Valley. An industry that isn't doing enough to protect its performers from HIV infection.
- Speaking of city workers, probation officers walked out yesterday in a dispute with the county.
- And, finally, while we're promoting L.A. hearts LA at the Standard tomorrow night, you should know that there's a Reality Relief benefit at the Century Club tonight.
