Nobody has an expectation of privacy when they are out in a public place. If you can take a picture of me when I'm at the Grove then anyone else is fair game too. I don't care if they are a celebrity. Yeah she has a right to express her displeasure, but poking a grabbing some 17 kid crosses a line. You people are so star struck that you'd probably think, "Wow! My kid just got manhandled by a celebrity!"

Does this mean that malls and shopping centers would have to charge for parking or is this just about street parking? What about people who buy stuff online and don't pay sales tax? Doesn't this mean a loss of revenue? Who the hell wants to carry all the stuff they buy on a bus, bike or walking? Lets say they are successful, I get rid of my car and now I don't pay registration fees to the state nor gas tax. This is stupid on so many levels. If they're going to give money to local governments, why not have them create bike routes away from streets like along the LA river?

A cyclist who followed the rules would be memorable. I can't remember the last time I saw a bike stop at a red light or stop sign. I'm not sure that I ever have in almost 30 years of driving. I do remember seeing bikes on a sidewalk on Eagle Rock Blvd. even though there are bike lanes in both directions.

If you leave early enough in the morning, the 101 South is not too bad. The 110 from the 101 to the 10 is always busy. It's unusable for most of the day in both directions. The problem with the Metro and bus lines is that most people have to transfer to get anywhere you might actually want to go. I'd like to see more raised HOV lanes like the 110 has south of the 10. With fewer on/off ramps and two lanes in each direction they could serve as express lanes for people with longer commutes.

So if the firefighter never works again because of his injuries (he does work with his hands) and he's not there to save you, will you still think it was worth it? Will you be glad to support him for the rest of his life? What if he had died in the effort, I wonder if his family would have that it was worth it.

Seriously though, what percentage of people getting divorced are victims of domestic violence? My guess is that it is pretty low. None of the people who are claiming a right to a divorce have a leg to stand on since Prop 8 established that rights can be put up to a popular vote. Armando

But why aren't the kids in school? It really is great that there are still generous people in the city, but there are many children who didn't get new shoes because their families decided that a days education was more important. If they were to go to the schools and help THOSE children I would feel better about the story.

It is unfortunate that people in charge of teaching children choose to cave in to pressure to boycott the speech. We cannot know how things really are unless we look at everything and then evaluate what we see. The people who want to boycott this speech really want children to have an incomplete picture of the world so that they will buy into their lies that Obama is a socialist, not really a US citizen, not really the president of the United States. It's disturbing that in a choice between ignorance and actual knowledge, that so many people choose ignorance. It the very least, if this turns out to be a political message, that people are better off knowing their enemy. Or maybe they don't trust themselves enough to think for themselves and they have to wait for the people on TV or radio to tell them what to think.

Where do you get that she is a non-citizen? Are you saying that this kinds of situation is OK for citizens? If I could ask her two questions the first would be where is the money coming from to raise these children and second, are you going to have any more kids? You have to wonder because most people would have said that 6 was enough.
