City officials consider limits for Occupy protesters:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Wednesday that the Occupy Los Angeles encampment outside City Hall “cannot continue indefinitely” and has asked city officials to draft restrictions limiting when people are allowed on city property.
His staff said they are also looking for another location for the protesters.

The pale boy with unfortunate Prince Valiant bangs and cublike mannerisms hulked to the mudroom closet and requisitioned Dad’s white coat. Then requisitioned the boots he’d spray-painted white. Painting the pellet gun white had been a no. That was a gift from Aunt Chloe. Every time she came over he had to haul it out so she could make a big stink about the woodgrain.
