Nope, it is not an April Fools joke. LAPD called out the bomb squad to Venice to deal with a “suspicious package” near Windward Circle. There was no bomb. Seems like the bomb squad gets called to Venice every few weeks these days?
I suppose better safe than sorry, but what exactly do they think people are going to blow up around here? Robert Graham sculptures?
Anyway, traffic was bad to begin with and is now worse. Don’t drive anywhere.
