Brian Humphrey lists the Ten Busiest Fire Stations in the City of Los Angeles at the LAFD blog. Each station averages 39 to 55 responses per day.

Mike at Franklin Ave. alerts us to the hospitalization of legendary newsman Hal Fishman, who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. (but correcting common wisdom, Mike points out that Stan Chambers is KTLA’s “longest tenured broadcaster” – he was hired in 1947, 18 years before Hal.)

Have you ever worked for one of the Patina Groups restaurants? Lesley of Eater L.A. writes a class action lawsuit is in the works claiming that Patina denied employees state mandated breaks repeatedly and flagrantly.

Jon at Metroblogging Orange County gives another reason “not to move to L.A.”: Lou Ferrigno, aka “The Hulk” has been sworn in as an L.A. County deputy sherriff.

Jeff of the Hobo Soul (who I’ll be writing about tomorrow) has a chat with an LAPD officer who informs him that if there isn’t a public restroom within 30 feet, you’re allowed to defecate right where you are withot fear of arrest, “not for indecent exposure or anything”.

Life in L.A.” blogger Claire Smith is moving to Chicago at the end of the month. Kate Coe of Media Bistro managed to interview Claire before her exit.
