I work near the Hyatt and I just got this email from the bulding manager: "Please be advised that you may experience a traffic delay today on Avenue of the Stars due to a Republican Party Fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The fundraiser, featuring Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin, is expected to begin at 5:30 p.m. A protest rally sponsored by California Democrats is expected to begin at 4:30 p.m. Please use caution when exiting or entering from Avenue of the Stars." This is happening across the street from CAA.Hey, look at that! It is happening across the street from CAA. But we thought this was just John McCain's party tonight, and that Palin was coming to town this weekend. Not that she's not welcome, of course, and she can raise $3,000 fast with a short trip to the Valley. Still, though, shouldn't she be preparing for tomorrow's debate? And in any case, what do you think is the over/under on this neighborhood black hole's temperature below freezing? Whatever your guess, feel free to calculate it later — you've got a detour to plan!
