Sure, sure one isn't supposed to talk about such things but hey - I just saw Robert Redford by my dentist's office! I can add that to my sightings list which includes

  • Anthony Edwards - airline club/LAX
  • Al Pacino - Toys R Us
  • Jon Voight - LAX
  • Pierce Brosnan - LAX
  • Dick Van Dyke - Best Buy
  • Ahnuld - several times in/around Santa Monica
  • Slash - bicycle shop
  • Lyle Lovett - motorcyle dealership (he later purchased it)
  • Scott Bakula - LAX
  • Dennis Hopper - art gallery

and probably some others that have slipped my mind. No biggie overall, but still - Robert Redford!

Interesting piece on L.A. schools (and attitudes towards low income students generally)

If liberals care about public schools, and about low income people in general, why are schools in a liberal Democratic stronghold so darn bad? I don't have the answers, but the article raises some great points.

Many affluent liberals in the L.A. area shell out approximately 20k/year for private school - why not spend the same time/attention on our local district?
