That Lovable Junkie on Fear Of The Walking Dead

Road Through Wonderland by Dawn Schiller Book Review and Personal Thoughts

I love a good book, where you get a sense that a person has truly bared their soul, and come to terms with their demons. I did not get that from this book, at all. No self realization. Nada. Instead, there was a lot of finger pointing. If you are gonna go in that direction, at least make sure it’s at the right people. Even that seemed off.

Bonnie Brae and 6th

Bonnie Brae and 6th – I love this area and this intersection particularly. The Rampart Police department is actually located maybe 5 blocks down from this doughnut shop. This corner was a huge magnet for shady activity through the 90s and early 2000s.  The illicit activities were so brazen and went on for years and…
