Ask for the News and Get the Weather Dept.

It's raining in Los Angeles. It rained yesterday, it's raining today, and it supposed to rain even harder tomorrow.

I didn't sign up for this when I moved away from the East Coast. I can't even remember the last time it rained here, much less a three-day storm. This is the end of the world, the apocalypse, the coming of New Coke and the last episode of Seinfeld, all rolled into one. The entire city will be flooded, all of the actors and agents and supermodels will be wading to their sports cars, covering up their lattes with their copies of Daily Variety and screaming at their assistants to make it all stop. But it won't stop. Ever.

I can't help but think that this is the result of the Winona trial. The heavens have opened up and expressed their displeasure with the Californian system of jurisprudence.

Welcome to the new island nation of Los Angeles. Hope you brought your snorkel.
