Freak Of The Week: Jesus

I’ve got a friend in the South Bay who’s seen Jesus. In fact, she sees him just about every week, at the Trader Joe’s parking lot in Redondo Beach: Now I’m not saying it’s Jesus himself, but it does make a lot of sense if it is.

Freak Of The Week: Subaru 360

This morning, I went to Super Car Sunday. It’s a great time. But it can often be, like many other car shows, an oversized circle jerk. On one side, you’ve got the grey bearded guys standing with hands deep in their pockets contemplating if it was the ’69 or ’70 Mustang that had the 2 barrel Windsor V8. Ug.

5 Things Moms Did In The 70s That Would Land Them In Jail Today

The scene of the crime..Mom’s was a Series III *Backseat As Babysitter: My mom used to park her car, crack a window and stroll into Lord & Taylor for a few hours of shopping and an uninterrupted lunch. This left the three of us bored to tears in the back seat. So we did what any restless pack of kids would do– we tried to...
