It's Sunday in Los Angeles, time for the funnies, like "Smokey Stover," one of the most eccentric American comic strips.  Above, Crenshaw Boulevard and Vernon Avenue. Today, we would probably call this area Leimert Park ...  Below, an event that reminds me of the Raymond Chandler line about "standing out like spats at the Iowa Picnic" ... and Earle Kynette remains in jail in the Harry Raymond bombing. On the jump, meter readers in Chinatown.
