Again with the posting

How can you not click through to a post with a line like this:

If a couple of college goofballs decide to produce a gangsta-rap video called "Produce Paradise," smacking each other in the crotch with beets and fondling honeydews, there's gotta be a few takers on YouTube, right?

Thought so. It's Mark Lacter in LA Biz Observed.

Jenny Price has a friend who kayaked the LA River. Yep - kayaked the LA River.

Yesterday I put in by the 5-110 interchange and kayaked to Long Beach. I was in a 50 year-old wood framed vinyl kayak with a canoe paddle. I had to portage a total of about one mile (because I bottomed out), but would not have had to portage at all in a modern river kayak.

It was a little gross, but all in all much better than I expected. No run-ins with authorities, a few cheers from pedestrians, cyclists and taggers.

What's with that weird concrete bunker thing in Here in Malibu?
