The Pursuit of Happiness

At the corner of Culver Blvd. and Centinela Ave. you will find the headquarters of the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division.

I think it's safe to assume that among the carjackers, the taggers and assorted gang bangers being held at this facility there are not a lot of happy campers.

Across the street however, within easy viewing distance of the holding cells (you know, if the cells had windows) is the Happy Corner Market.

This is no coincidence.

I believe the Happy Corner Market serves as a beacon of hope to those following the misguided path of unlawfulness. A simple reminder that once incarcerated they will no longer be afforded the luxury of getting their tacos, their tequila, their donuts and their pornographic magazines in one convenient stop.

That, and the prospect of "daily prostate exams", is enough to keep me on the straight and narrow.

Rich, you have so much common sense. You know which side of the road to stay on and when to get the hell out of the dog park.

Maybe so Ellen, but if I don't get some free healthcare soon, I might have to rob a stagecoach.
