Mural of Jim Morrison in Venice CA

Tourists from Florida take snapshots in Venice CA

The Jim Morrison mural is at 18th Place and Speedway in Venice CA

It seems to the World's Laziest Journalist that very few people care to read wild predictions that JEB Bush will be the President-elect one year from now and that columns about the reasoning leading to that conclusion won't draw as many new readers to the Op Ed News website as would photos of the Jim Morrison mural in Venice CA.

On a beautiful warm day just perfect for Christmas shopping, going for a walk to shoot some photos that might well provide some top quality Googlebait for the site that specializes in political news and analysis, seemed like a less expensive way to pass the time (and get some fresh air and exercise) and to also draw new visitors to the online publication.

While shooting the photos, the columnist/photographer offered to help some tourists get a photo with all of them in the frame by taking a photo with their camera.   When they were asked where they were from, they answered "We're from Florida."   Another group of tourist within earshot enthusiastically noted that they also were from Florida.

The first group of visitors was not very enthusiastic when they heard the columnist prediction about their former governor.  

They added that they were going to continue on their Doors tour and go to Hinano's Cafe on Washington Street (near the Venice Pier) to ascertain the truth of the rumor that the tavern boasts a bar on which the lead singer for the Doors carved his name.   The columnist, who had lived in that neighborhood for twenty years, had never heard that particular bit of Doors lore.

Other tourists might be interested in learning that the location of the mural is at 18th Place and Speedway.  

In less than a year, Jim Morrison fans and political analysts from both Parties will be able to easily evaluate the degree of accuracy displayed in the columnist's attempt at long range political election results forecasting.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
