    South Central LA was like a war zone. Guns, some fully automatic on most street-corners.

    Your friendly governmental agency and your tax dollars at work.

        I was in the middle of that mess as a "consumer."

        Running my lead-sled down the dark streets with my old-school Cragars polished and glasspacks grumbling with a Ak-47 on my lap.

        I've calmed down quite a bit since the bad old days.
