This movie poster of YF&N used a painting by an artist decades earlier. So why am I in it? Sis too

I predict that things will only get worse quickly if Americans are being asked to go  back to work, but all the pubs are being ordered to stay closed.  I predict that many poets, writers, artists, musicians and all around creative people who rely heavily in the effects of alcohol in relation to how their job affects them soberly will blow their brains out with a gun.  I predict many disgruntled tax payers returning to work without an outlet to release and unwind will take up arms and massacre innocent people.
When I write like this, I don't really need my glasses to see; and that's why they call this style blackletter/fat letter.

Starbucks grand opening in Echo park - Glendale Blvd & Montana St. Jun 26 Fri.
We've all heard about Kaepernick and the football commissioner's attempt to empathize with protesters.  Lately, his statement has sparked many questions in the media:  I haven't read any of Collapse ) I haven't read any of the Roger Goodell [SLASH] Colin Kaepernick news articles.  Do you know why?  No, not because I'm lazy;  Nor because I'm illiterate.  I haven't read any print journalism news articles on the subject because Starbucks, which just finished their grand opening of their newest Echo Park, Los Angeles satellite office, does not supply newspapers.  There is currently no telling when or if this Starbucks outlet will ever supply their customers with newspapers because it is only by word of mouth that I came to understand that, depending on how much business they get, over time they might begin a subscription to a newspaper publication like NY Times, Washington Post.  And in the interim, it feels a lot like when the last elections put a measure to vote about whether or not to keep daylight savings time in California, but when it passed and those who voted to eliminate it saw that they were still obligated the following year to adjust their watches, clocks, we've all become slave to how and when legislation decides to adjust our schedule.

Just as, if I had know getting excited about a Starbucks coming to town so close I could wake up, get out of bed at 4:30 in the morning, cross the street in my PJs (in my case boxer shorts) and buy a copy of the newspaper… if I had know that peeing my pants in excitement was premature and dependent on the profit margins of the manager of the new Starbucks, I would simply have chagrined my eagerness and defaulted to my espresso machine and laptop for news.

After all, what does this little hick regime known as Echo Park have invested in anything that happens to us.~  We who believed Villaraigosa was corrupt in his failed marriage dealings and replaced him with Huizar.  What the hell, I wouldn't have known anything about the corrupt city council in my district anyway since the only newspaper I'm really interested is in what people read on the east coast.
