Lunch with Polly at Astro Burger. Strikers picketing at the Paramount Entrances. Cars honking, as sign waving, out of work writers, set in motion, some of Hollywood's worst fears.

My Destination: The Hammer Museum to see the Ricky Jay Broad Side Exhibit. Here are a some examples of 100 pieces in the show.
