No Animal Jokes

Most exciting (You can't really call it that; interesting, maybe.) event of the day in my experience (Whatever you may have seen is of interest only to you, pal!) was four horses (w/ troopers) from the L.A.P.D. Metro Squad's Mounted Unit using the crosswalks at Sunset Bl. & Western Ave.
West on Sunset then south on Western if you give a whatever at a rolling dough-nut. No idea what they were up to; acclimating the horses to vehicle traffic? No more sidewalk hostesses to move from one prostitution hotspot to another in these days of social media, not that the mounted unit has ever (to my knowledge) done that.
