Monday is bound to be a very lively day in Los Angeles. When a half million people gathered in support of immigration reform a month ago, folks who don't listen to Spanish-language radio didn't hear about it until the following day-- because the rally was on a Sunday-- and in deserted downtown L.A.
Monday, they're taking to the streets on the way to the Beverly Center in the middle of a workday. If all goes according to plan and the weather is fine, the turnout will be bigger, no one will be working the valet parking stands, restaurant kitchens or residential yards, all Hell will be breaking loose and a lot of people will have found an excuse to stay home from work.
