Notes From The Scorecard

Sucky start to my Tuesday:

ï From L.A. Observed I learn that the pixs by used in this week’s L.A. Weekly article on walking tours in Echo Park and elsewhere were credited to him but Weekly editors apparently couldn’t even be bothered to extend the courtesy of properly getting his permission, much less flowing him some green for his scenery.

ï A Long Beach Police Department K-9 officer was killed in the line of duty, allegedly shot by a barricaded gang member the dog had been sent in to flush out. Human officers were able to return the favor and hasten the fucker’s entrance into hell.

ï And last, Nipsey Russell has died.
