Shooting Update  
I emailed WH Public Safety about the shooting and got a call back. Apparently, it went down like this:

Guy's walking down Larrabee, up the street a little bit from Video West and East/West Lounge. Guy standing next to his car (shaved head) approached the victim and demanded his wallet. He refused, backed away, and made a motion as if he were going to pull out a gun. That's when the suspect shot him in the arm. He walked to the police station to report it, and paramedics treated him there.

So... yeah, if you see a suspicious guy just standing against a car, you might want to be alert. And, might not be such a good idea to pretend you have a gun unless you're willing to back that up.

In other news, I've had entirely too many regular iced teas and Cokes today. And weeeeee....

Given the amount of beverage you've consumed today, I'm surprised this isn't being written from the men's room.

Great - this only confirms one of my deep-seated fears of the LA Basin. At least I know that I'm too big a wussy not to just give up my wallet and cry like a little girl...

eh it's fine.

Weho is safe. You just have to be on the lookout. Assholes like to come into the city every now and then cuz they think gays are easy marks. A few have gotten their asses kicked with that logic.

They forget we workout a lot. :-P

I am rather hoping to surround myself with a gaggle of ass-kicking homos down there...
