#dumptrump   #RNC   #Cleveland   The crazy train has definitely arrived in ‪Cleveland with the ‪RNC‬. Ohio Militiamen "exercising their rights". Yeah, how much you want to bet that the vast majority of these so-called bad*sses, have never served in the military, never been dropped in a hot zone or have never been in any battle or war other than the ones in video games! Get the hell outta here!

What I cannot understand is why they want to keep baiting the police.
It just seems like a bunch of silliness. I feel sorry for the families of the cops that were killed.
If the police had any sense, THEY would protest this behavior and walk off of their jobs and stop protecting these media hungry people.

I was recently asked to sit on a panel discussion about the culture of celebrity and how it affects a lot of journalist's credibility. I've been on many a red carpet and covered a ton of non-celebrity related events over the years. I've found that some "journalists" are so busy trying to become celebrities themselves, they seem to have forgotten why they're on that assignment in the first place. I've been asked many times why I don't post photos of myself when I'm out in the field. Well here is why...I'm not a celebrity and I'm there to do my job and not insert myself into the coverage of the event. Sure, once I'm finished I might take a pic or two, but that's all my tolerance level can handle.

But I've noticed that American journalists are some of the worst offenders. I've literally cringed at their fangirling and fanboying over celebrities, politicians and other high-profile people. They were frantic (groupies would be proud) with trying to get that Instagram worthy selfie or photo. Gone are the days where journalists and reporters are professional and there to paint a visual picture.

We simply don't have that level of excellence anymore. Now, everyone wants to be a celebrity and if someone doesn't have a certain amount of social media followers, they're not considered a successful journalist. The problem also lies with the fact that many of the those covering red carpets, premieres and other general assignments, have absolutely no background in journalism. They were put there because they're visually pleasing...no more, no less.

Society has been trained to settle for mediocrity in almost every facet of our day-to-day lives. Being stellar is considered boring and not sexy enough to hold society's short attention span. Thus causing irreparable damage to the journalism profession.

I was covering an event and was starving, so I dropped into the restaurant. I love it. The food is fresh and that lemonade with vodka is so smooth! And the prices are reasonable, particularly during happy hour.I would highly recommend this place if you enjoy a pleasant atmosphere, great sushi and a terrific bang for your buck.

I went to this FedEx yesterday because I was on my way to a rare Sunday meeting. I made 2 copies totaling 39 cents. This morning when I was checking my account, there was a $15.00 hold put on there from them. I've used those self-serve printing machines several times and I've never had a hold put on my card. There was no sign saying those machines would do that. I called this morning and spoke to one of their employees and he first said that it was my bank. WRONG. I called the fraud department immediately because I thought someone had gotten my card number. So I told him that. Then he said there is a sign stating they put holds on your card. WRONG! Then he said it was a company-wide policy. WRONG! I filed a complaint with FedEx and the person I spoke with said no, she had never heard of any such policy. I also called another FedEx and spoke with someone and asked if their copiers were programmed to put holds on your card and he had no idea what I was talking about and said no as well. What if a person needed a copy and all they had was a few dollars on their credit or debit card? They should not now nor ever put $15.00 holds on people's cards for copies that cost a few cents. This was completely unacceptable and this practice needs to stop.

Overnight service was paid for. So I waited all day and no UPS. On-line it said that the package was out for delivery. Then I called around 6:30 and got a rep and they said it would be delivered tonight, Tuesday 1/8/15. Then around 7:30 pm. I spoke with a so-called supervisor and he called this deplorable center on Blaine Street where the package was coming from and he said the driver had the package and that it would be delivered tonight. Well, the office is closed and if they don't have my code or telephone number, how they going to get in. He then told me that I should wait outside for an undetermined amount of time for the driver. Now I'm furious. I called back to speak with a another supervisor and he called this Blaine Street location and they told him that the package wouldn't be delivered tonight but would be delivered tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon between 2:30 and 6:30 pm. They expected me to waste another day. So I called back a 3rd time and spoke with a supposed female supervisor, she called this Blaine Street center and spoke with Wes and he told her that the package would be delivered on Wednesday too and there was no way I could get the package in the morning after it was their screw up. UPS is the absolute WORST delivery service you can possibly use and don't use them if at all possible. They lie, they give misinformation both on the phone and on-line, their customer service is atrocious and they absolutely DO NOT stand by their guarantees of on-time delivery and overnight service. DONE with them for good.!

Three times in a row, the number 7 passed my stop and didn't pick us up. They arbitrarily pass one stop, then stop at another. I teach special courses at the college level sometimes and 3 times I was at the stop in more than enough time, but 3 times now I was late to class. This madness has to stop. I have reported this and nothing has changed. You cannot and must not operate a bus service like this and think people are just going to continue to take it. The representative I spoke with before, acknowledged that many people have complained about the number 7 on Pico, but offered no solution, no compensation, no call-back from a supervisor as I requested...nothing. And don't get me started on those nasty, unfriendly, vitriolic drivers. If they don't want the job, then there are 1000's of people out there who would be glad to take their place. When my husband and I first moved to LA years ago, the number 7 was a dream line and we were used to taking public transportation because we're from the East Coast. But when some suit at their headquarters decided to screw around with the line, it's been a nightmare. They cut back on the number 7 as if everyone is within walking distance to the Rapid 7. And that is ridiculous in itself. There have been many occasions when the Rapid 7, was either almost empty or slightly full. The geniuses decided that the people who exclusively ride the number 7 didn't need as much service. Isn't it always some fool who doesn't know what they're talking about because they don't ride the bus. I had to walk back to my home and get my car on more than several occasions because the number 7 is unreliable.

Love the retro, old Hollywood vibe. The garlic bread makes you want to make a meal out of it. Yum!! The ribs are delicious, the service was pleasant and we will definitely be back.

The Next Door Lounge is a nice little gem that's quite nondescript from the street, however once inside, you are pleasantly surprised at the sheer enormity of the interior. The service is great, the food is very good but one thing, we went on a night when the band was playing completely random and vulgar music. Profanities spewing like liquid and because the atmosphere is circa 1920's speakeasy, we were all wondering what was that about??? It was definitely not the establishment's finest moment. Other than that incident, I would highly recommend The Next Door Lounge because it was a treat to have fun at a place that wasn't formulaic and boring.
