  1. Family Dance Party is always super fun!

  2. Hi Eastsider –

    As the writer of the Patch piece you have linked to here, I would very much like if you could change your wording. Stating that the LAPD “to support” the license gives the perception that a vote has been made, a license is going to be granted, or some other form of approval has taken place. Here is what is stated in my article:

    “While Murphy said he supports the licensing of Fix Coffee, he refuses to support licensing of establishments that would operate as liquor stores only.’

    Murphy supports licensing. That is different than “LAPD to support”. Thanks so much for taking care of it!

  3. @ Rivers. Capt. Murphy represents the LAPD in this area and speaks for the department on these and other issues.

  4. Thanks for responding to my comment. I love your blog. Sorry for the confusion, but I do feel as though using the word “to” implies something different than what my article said. I understand that Capt. Murphy reps the LAPD for our area, but I also understand that saying “to approve” implies something different than “approves of.” Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
