"It was a dark and strange day in Echo Park…" No, that's not the opening of some neo-noir Los Angeles crime novel - it really was a dark and strange day over in Echo Park. Low dark clouds all day, with a bit a wan sunlight late in the afternoon, gone in three minutes, and then things closed in again. Everything looked disturbing all day, even the fanciful giants birds painted on that fifty-foot wall. Los Angeles is like that sometimes. This was Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
