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.

Thanks @nowthatsWTF and @TaradiseUNLV for this rich piece of LA history. A 14-second Google search turned up something not quite resembling corroboration of this story that most weren't sure they could actually prove. The comments, as expected, provided much in the way of giggling (in those 14 seconds) with the expected, but no less funny, ha-has like: "it stayed hard all the time, he was always sitting around getting stoned, the kids are a chip off the old block, and she married a rock who she took for granite." Urban legend? Totally awesome factoid? You decide.
