Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Los Angeles is cracking down on the illegal use of disabled placards by the abled to avoid paying for parking or just out of a need to park in special cases.  I think the hilariously entitled reactions of the people being ticketed, people pretending to be disabled so they can get away with fraud, is the real telling piece of the story.  Too bad LAPD can’t impound their cars for 30 days.
