The second most common search term bringing visitors to L.A. Observed in August has been "playboy mansion address." No idea why, but as a quasi-public service to whoever you are, there it is. It's actually part of my Wilshire Boulevard research, since the estate used to be the mansion of Arthur Letts, founder of the Broadway and Bullock's stores, founder of Holmby Hills, and a bunch of other ancient trivia.
