While I worked closely with him at the International Chamber of Commerce, when I exposed the creation of fabricated accounting maneuvers by the ICC's chief financial officer which were intended to increase the losses ICC Publishing SA, of which I was President, in order to artificially increase the value of a tax deduction to an acquiring company, Peter Wallenberg, rather than coming clean, preferred to disregard and try to bury the facts so as not to embarrass the ICC, so lost whatever respect I may have had for him.

"...I have come to the point in my life where I never pray for divine intervention any longer - petitioning "God" to fix all the problems in my life and in the world. For one thing I don't think of "God" as a divine superbeing regardless of how nice or how benevolent "He" may be. When I use the word "God," I think: "Abiding Presence" - an intimate life-giving energy at the core of all that is.
I believe this Holy Presence is indeed with us but I don't believe in a"God" who fixes or makes it all better - I think that's our job as human beings.
...The world is made better by each and every one of us assuming our moral responsibility to make it better ...."

- From The Desert Retreat House, a blog written by Paul Kowalewski, an ordained Episcopal Priest and hold degrees in theology, philosophy, and communication.

The Obama administration’s goal of rebalancing American foreign policy to emphasize the region has taken a back seat lately, but Secretary of State John Kerry sought, for the moment, to change that.

Excellent Peruvian cuisine and caring, professional service combined with a nice, refurbished decor and real cloth napkins. Highly recommended (and much, much better than Mario's Peruvian in a dicey strip mall further down Vine).

of all the unami berger locations i find this the worst in terms of decor, mediocre service and overly loud music. i like the hamburgers and sweet potato fries, but go out of my way to other unami burger stores to get them.

I wish there were more French restaurants in Los Angeles and Comme Ca, regretfully, does not make up for their lack. Above average food, but the overall experience does not in any way remind me of the 8 years I lived in Paris (and not in a good way).

Underwhelming in every way except for prices, which are somewhat too high for the mediocre quality and service. If you are in the area, you'll do better walking a few blocks to Off Vine or Los Balcones del Peru.
