THE CITY VANISHES
3 - COUNCILMAN MITCH ENGLANDER GOING AFTER SUPERVISOR SEAT
Date: Apr 24, 2015
Forty years ago, a cadre of Venice Beach sunbathers routinely basked in the altogether.
The Venice Neighborhood Council thinks the time is ripe to take a half-step back to that time of physical freedom. In a 12-2 vote Tuesday, the council said it "supports women being afforded the same rights as men to sunbathe topless."
There are so many more important things to be concerned about in Venice...this makes us look foolish.
The city and county of Los Angeles prohibit nude or topless sunbathing.

Passing the Buck
The Buck Stops Here
Most men in the early west carried a jack knife made by the Buck Knife Company. When playing poker, it was common to place one of these Buck Knives in front of the dealer so that everyone knew who he was. When it was time for a new dealer, the deck of cards and the knife were given to the new dealer. If this person didn't want to deal, he would "Pass the Buck" to the next player. If that player accepted, then "the Buck stops here".
