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.

If that's the area I'm thinking off I believe the beach os off limits. Pretty spot.

I'm from Melbourne, Australia, so am a little spoiled when it comes to nice places to live / visit.

 

But I spent some time in California last year and Santa Cruz reminded me so much of home that it was scary.

 

I plan to head back there next year for an extended period.

Any idea when it closed?

There was an empty, overgrown lot next to a building I worked in at Crenshaw/Wilshire. I forget how I found out but I guess it used to be inhabited by the mansion from that film.

I dunno, it was already gone when I started cruising the strip in the mid-'80s.

Well, sort of, in those days I was 16-17 and I cruised in the day time so that really doesn't count.

LA is many things but beautiful is not one of them. Parts of it are but so much is not.

Why? Too Modernist? Not enough wrought iron and brick?
