Terribly hot in L.A. this week, fires, haze, high pressure system; the moon looks fuzzy tonight because there is so much particulate matter in the air. And Homeboy Industries, the now-venerable job training and services program for former gang members (they now publish a literary magazine, too; here’s the current issue), is holding a Virtual Carwash to raise money for its important programs, which are under strain in these difficult economic times. Better for the lungs, not too damaging to the pocketbook, and low-impact environmentally. You can direct your donation to honor someone’s birthday or other event, too. Thanks to my marvelous neighbor Mary for the link:
