Reading Material 1/29: Obama Art; Starbucks Closures; Battle of Los Angeles

  1. Here's a hard-to-stop-looking-at blog compiling instances of "Obama Art" cropping up across the country. [Obama Art Report]
  2. Starbucks is closing 300 more shops.  California will be affected, says the OC Register fast food blog. [Fast Food Maven]
  3. Ever heard of "The Battle of Los Angeles"?  Neither had I.  Evidently there was a huge UFO scare right after Pearl Harbor, in which the entire city was blacked out while coast guard and civil defense gunners opened fire on what appeared to be a flying saucer hovering over Culver City and Santa Monica.  What a city.
