Peter, Paris, and Christine? The Best of the Week So Far

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Lede of the week: Imagine if Peter Pan had been a fucked-up teenage vagrant with a permanent hard-on, Wendy had been a cum-drenched junkie living in Brooklyn and Captain Hook had looked something like Mickey Rourke - you’d think to yourself, “I bet Larry Clark had something to do with this”. - LA Weekly's Style Council

Stoke of the week: "While no one would ever confuse Paris Hilton with Mother Teresa, a homeless man got lucky (oh stop it) when he caught the Hollywood heiress at a McDonald's drive-thru in LA and she gave him a $100 bill." - US Magazine

Excuse of the week: 89 year-old George Weller on how it was that he killed 10 people when the car that he was driving plowed into a crowd at a Farmer's Market in Santa Monica three years ago: ""It seems to me that it was the vehicle itself responding, because I sure as hell didn't have control over it. I was trying my best." - CBS2
