Comedy Congress from the Crawford Family Forum!

Comedy Congress from the Crawford Family Forum!

The comedic material emanating from Washington D.C., and state capitols across the country, is enough to make any sitcom writer jealous, even if most of that comedy is unintentional. Our motto on Comedy Congress is that just when politics makes you want to cry, it’s usually best to laugh. Today we laugh at the asinine […]

Westgate Grand Opening Celebration

Westgate Grand Opening Celebration

I had a chance to stop by the grand opening of the well-designed Westgate Apartments yesterday, which was attended by employees of Sares-Regis (the developer), architects involved with the project, community stakeholders, and civic leaders including the Mayor of Pasadena, Bill Bogaard. I was very uplifted to hear the mayor’s speech that the City of […]

Blue on the Hill

Blue on the Hill

As a collector of South Pas stories, you’d think I would know the scoop on this enormous blue tarp cascading down the hillside above Lower Arroyo Park. Someone really wanted to do their own backyard version of Christo and Jeanne- Claude? No? I don’t have a clue. Anyone? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of […]

Meet the first-ever Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Farah Anwar Pandith

Meet the first-ever Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Farah Anwar Pandith

Despite President Obama’s commitment to open communication with the Muslim world (and Muslim-American communities), made at his speech last June 4th at the University of Cairo, the past year has wrought several high-profile examples of home-grown, radicalized young Muslims—several of them American citizens—plotting acts of terror against their nominal American countrymen. It has also been […]

"I am the poem"

"I am the poem"

I can barely write today’s post. Patricia Kaye died Tuesday from advanced metastatic bone cancer. Most of you knew her as YakPate – the audaciously brilliant Los Angeles blogger, poet and daily commenter to this blog. I knew her as Pat. She was my best friend. I can’t begin to explain how much darker the […]
