Oh wow, yes! I'm ashamed to say I'd forgotten that aspect of those times, but as soon as you said her name I remembered. Fecking hell. https://allthatsinteresting.com/latasha-harlins

And Beverly Hills, too. I just warned a friend who lives there but he's all about staying home.

Mr. H was just asking me if there were nationwide riots after Rodney King. My memory is that it was local, but I was living here and don't remember much beyond the horror of watching both beatings (Rodney King and later Reginald Denny) and as the latter was being attacked feeling nauseous in the pit of my stomach because I'm old enough to remember the uprisings of the late '60s.

I had parents whose emotional range in front of me went from angry and/or silently fuming (Dad) to stoic (Mom). When my mom and I were alone together she was much freer to show her feelings, but I never saw her cry save for one time that I can't talk about here. Mostly she tried to show me how to find the lemonade no matter what. I get the value of that. Given the medical stuff I've been through, it was life saving to have that skill of recognizing the alligator filled moat but then knowing that just beyond it is the cool clean pitcher of lemonade that will restore my faith in Life. All I have to do is swim.

Curbside pickup is my forever jam. Roll down the window; 'throw my booty in the car!' and then drive away.

I mean, he was dressed in what looked like black tactical gear, full on gas mask (which the ex-wife claimed is hers), and a big black umbrella, presumably to thwart ID'ing from any overhead cameras. With a hammer.

I woke up with a clenched jaw. Went to the bathroom, checked Twitter, and now may have booze for breakfast.
