After going for a morning jog, I can report that Bel Air looks like pretty safe Obama territory. No McCain signs, no "Hockey Moms for Palin", just the bright blue of Obama signs nestled outside the multi-million dollar homes like alarm warnings. Clearly an appreciation of irony is more of a New York quality than an L.A. one.
Later in the day I was in the Century City shopping center and came across a cart offering engraving of any photograph onto silver I.D. tags. I thought they were pretty impressive and as you can see looked like something Damien Hirst would have loved for his forthcoming auction had he known about them.
