LAPD Memorial Street Signs

More than 200 officers of the Los Angeles Police Department have been killed in the line of duty
since the department was formed in 1869. In 2014, the city launched a project to honor
these officers, by placing special memorial signs at the location where each officer fell,
or at the LAPD Police Academy. These are the stories of the men and women
who risked their lives every day to serve and protect the citizens of Los Angeles,
and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Hey, look! I'm in an actual library! And so is my book.

Anthony Bourdain was a huge fan of "Hollywood Remains to Be Seen." (Actually, I have no idea. I met him when he was filming an episode for one of his TV shows on a Dearly Departed Tour, and I gave him a book, and he was kind enough to pose for a photo with me. Very nice guy, and surprisingly knowledgeable about infamous celebrity deaths, which shouldn't be too surprising since he seemed to be knowledgeable about almost everything.)
