  • While the world (still) mourns Heath Ledger's passing, taggers simply don't care and find it completely acceptable to tag all over the poor Joker face.

Care to rebut?
  • When you go to close your tab tonight at the bar, reach in your friend's wallet and see if they're a member of Allstate. If so, give them the tab because Allstate announced today that they're cutting their insurance premium's 28.5%, and now your buddy can finally afford a round.
  • In "better safe than sorry" news, a portion of the SFV's 170 Freeway was shut down after gunshot noises were heard. After miles of traffic backed up and the police investigated, turns out is was just fireworks from those mangy kids again!
  • McCain said what about USC! Oh, that his wife's alma mater is - "USC, the University of Spoiled Children?" What-everrrr....
  • Target to plop down at Sunset & Western in Hollywood. Can you feel the traffic jams already? Good thing the Red Line is a few blocks away.
  • More Target news in San Clemente where city staff will ask City Council for permission to sell city-owned land to the retailer. Before you know it, Target will outnumber Starbucks!
