Susan Lucci? Hubba, hubba, hubba!!!!!

Ah, the Hollywood Xmas Parade - the parade doesn't start until evening, but the City starts towing cars at the crack of dawn...They open up the parking spot just so another car can park, and they can tow that one too. It's really about the Parade of Tow Trucks until Santa arrives.

Biggest money maker of the year, I'm sure. When they tried to cancel the parade a few years ago because no one was attending, they HAD to save it because the city couldn't afford to lose all of the towing fees.

ALL OF THIS FOR A TIRED OLD ACT WITH NO NAME "HEADLINERS" THAT NOW ISN'T EVEN MAKING IT TO BROADCAST T.V. BUT TO AN INTERNET SITE!!!! LET IT DIE...WE HAVE ENOUGH DAILY CONGESTION IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!!!!

Susan Lucci? I'm sure she's a lovely lady, but what is this, 1986?

Yeah I am one of those who paid $260 for this parade with my car towed in 2002. Good job City of LA, you deserve all that budget mess you are in now, I wish you the worst.
