Heartbreaking documentary. I've met him once or twice. He seems really humble and gracious.

Before I up and move out there, I figure that I ought to see the place for myself. I feel pretty confident I'll like it, but you know. Any general advice on what a good way to accomplish my (admittedly very loosely defined) goals might be?

How much time do you have, do you like the outdoors or do you prefer being near a larger urban center, how is your budget?

Nice pic. It looks really sad these days surrounded by mesh fence with the lake drained. I look forward to seeing lotus plants again, though.

Been there once, would love to go back. I'd love to get down into the cove...I don't remember if it's because the trail is really steep, or non-existent, but I recall that hardly anyone gets to the beach.

Something for Manton. Cal Golden Bears vs. USC Trojans playing in SF Giant's Park. Halftime show. Cal band playing a medley of songs from California Girls (beach boys) to California Love (tupac). I could see the formation pretty well from my nosebleed seats.

When is it slated to be open again? A year? Two?

A visit by former porn star Sasha Gray to a Compton elementary school prompted officials to offer an explanation Monday regarding how the actress ended up reading to a classroom full of children.

Gray, who recently landed a part in the HBO show "Entourage," visited Emerson Elementary School as part of its guest reader program. The visit was arranged by an outside talent coordinator, the Compton Unified School District said in a statement.
