State Of Emergency Rally…


A coworker just called me warning me that traffic on Highland and Cahuenga is really bad right now, so I checked my go-to website for street-level traffic and sure enough, there’s an event going on:

Title of Event: State of Emergency–Drown out the Lies, Bush Step Down

The march will then proceed south on Cahuenga to Sunset Bl and disbands in front of the CNN building on Sunset between Cahuenga and Wilcox.
