Their six-month-old upscale food truck, parked around the corner from American Jewish University, serves grilled tri-tip, baby back ribs, chicken, half-pound hamburguesas, salmon, and burritos, tacos, tortas, and even ceviche. We visited one morning last week — before the lunch rush started — to see wassup. [Disclosure: They have insisted on treating me to lunch. Twice.]

Bill Rosendahl, who represented Los Angeles' 11th District in City Council when I was editor of AOL's Brentwood Patch, is now in hospice care according to his successor Mike Bonin.
Bill was always very kind to me and, as, the City Councilperson for Brentwood, provided the kind of representation in City Hall most other communities could only dream of. Who else would deliver fresh eggs from his chickens to worthy constituents as a gift?!
I'm glad my 2011 Patch video of Bill doing his Egg Thing is still around! Everyone loved him, and he loved everyone back.
As the City Council's first openly gay member and the first city official to come out as a user of medical cannabis, he was a personal hero to many. He also went to college in Latrobe, PA, where they brew Rolling Rock.
He had to leave Latrobe to seek his fortune in California because the 10-ounce "pony bottle" of a small town couldn't contain his charisma. ;-)

I've gotten lotsa press over the years, but my Billy Joel Captain Jack adventure is probably one of my greatest hits.
You can read a short version of the saga in my Amazon review of Billy's CD.
And look for my retelling of the story in the upcoming Sigma Sound Studios documentary.

When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross and riding a tricycle, just like Ted Cruz.
