The Filter: Critical Mass, RVs and Conspiracy Theories

Here’s the latest segment of NBC’s the Filter in which Fred Roggin asks attorney Leo Terrell and me about:

1. Critical Mass—the monthly bike ride that will take place Friday night in LA (along with other cities across the US). It had 2500 riders last month, and is expected to be larger tonight—demonstrating that the time has come for LA to become a truly bike friendly city.

2. The feud over who has the right to say who parks on the street that is being fought between semi-homeless RV squatters who, lacking options, routinely park overnight in Venice—and disgruntled Venice residents who are sick of the impact of the big vehicles and their occupants.

3. Whether the US should have walked out of the UN over the latest stupid thing that Iran Prez Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

(Short answer: NO.)

NOTE: FYI: At 9:13 p.m. Thursday , Virginia executed the double-murder “mastermind” Teresa Lewis, a woman who is estimated to have an IQ of 72. The two men who actually did the killing received life without parole.


  • Celeste, you and Terrell are both wrong on the baning of allowing RV parking on city streets. It’s illegal to park big rigs on most streets, what makes you think a ban on RV’s wouldn’t be legal as well? I like the ideal of it being allowed in certain commercial areas myself.
