    The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles is currently showing, “ICONS”, a small retrospective of Kenneth Anger’s work. The show at MoCA may be reminiscent of a 2009 retrospective at MoMA PS1 in New York City, as it revolves closely to the “Magick Lantern Cycle” series which Anger put together as suitable films for public screening.

    In the days before 9/11, the biggest hassle in airport travel was having to turn down the pleas of the old women in nurses costumes standing by the escalators. Now, after 9/11, the fake nurses are still there, but they move down the long security lines that line the curbs.

The city is also home to one of the world's premiere research hospitals, the UCLA Medical Center, which recently benefited from a $200 million donation by David Geffen.

Citizens of this city of exes have a bad rap for treating marriage like, well, a bad wrap - chucking it easily into the nearest trash can.

"Stare Decisis" is the guiding principle of the American legal system - the court should "let the decision stand" and respect precedent for the sake of the rule of law.
