Sometimes You Just Have to Pee in the Sink

Bukowski a Nazi sympathizer?
Charles Bukowski lived in a bungalow on DeLongpre in Hollywood from 1963 to 1972, and now the city of Los Angeles wants to make it a cultural landmark, much to the chagrin of the current owners, who were trying to sell it as a $1.3 million tear-down.

Co-owner Victoria Gureyeva, who is Jewish, says Bukowski "loved Hitler" and she's not going to let L.A. turn the property into a landmark. She says she will enlist the help of local Jewish activists to prevent it. Read the details here.

Maybe turning it into a dive bar would be a more appropriate homage. I'd raise a glass or six to that.
