  1. I lived in LA many years ago and remember when Silver Lake was a crap neighborhood full of cheap rentals and run down homes. Not an organic raw juice bars to be seen. Coffee was Sanka with Sweet ‘N Low served by an elderly waitress who called you Hon. Gunshots were not uncommon. Van Nuys was a fair to middling bland white suburb where all the moms worked as secretaries for Rocketdyne and Litton.

    Do I have a point? Am I nostalgic for a bygone era? Am I outraged at our present condition? Meh.

  2. The flag at the Silver Lake residence is the United Nations flag. I’m thinking maybe the occupant/s celebrate Armistice Day, rather than Veteran’s Day.

    “Eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month”

    1. That’s an interesting take. It’s possible. I assume they’re making a statement favoring the United Nations, institutionally.
