I know that that intersection very well. Most days, Overland is the only sane way to enter Westwood from the south.

Ha! I knew that. I so hate being stuck in traffic, I know all the secret routes.

What is that huge building? It looks kind of government-ish.

It's the Mormons.

Why all eastbound? All the CC lawyers working late on Tuesday?

I think I remember that building from when my mother used to take us to Santa Monica Beach way back in 19xx. It was, uh, before the freeway went in.

It's Temple Something Or Other, Martin.

That is the Los Angeles California Temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints, you heathen vixen. You should go there; but remember: Wear your Sunday best.

I grew up in that neighborhood. Schoolyard rumor was that the Mormons believed the statute trumpeter would spin around and blow his horn when the end of the world came. Always wanted to see that.

It's close enough to WeHo that he could instead spin around and blow somebody.
