Dispatch from Koreatown:
It's 8:42 am and Wilshire Blvd. In Koreatown is choked with traffic, as are all the side streets, after a World Cup soccer match with South Korea v. Togo just let out. Thousands of pedestrians waving little red inflatable batons, drivers honking their horns -- South Korea won 2-1. Don't even think of getting through here. If Korea wins the cup, they might as well shut Mid-Wilshire down for a week.
