Prince Harry’s future father-in-law rents a Los Feliz apartment; porn industry opposes proposed library restrictions

Royal Son-in-Law: Thomas Markle, whose daughter, Meghan Markle, is engaged to Britain’s Prince Harry, rents a Los Feliz apartment across from Prospect Studios while living most of the time in Mexico. Markle, a retired Hollywood lighting director, maintains a ground floor apartment that is “far removed from the grandeur of Kensington Palace where his daughter may yet set up home,” said the Daily Mail in a story published a few weeks before the couple’s engagement was officially announced. “He’s always been a great neighbour,” one woman told the Daily Mail. “He loves children. There are seven or eight young kids in this building and he’s like Santa Claus. He always brings gifts for the kids, especially at Christmas.”

Adult Content: The porn industry is taking issue with 4th District Councilman David Ryu’s proposal to block  pornographic websites that can be viewed on computers at city libraries, says the L.A. Weekly. The Free Speech Coalition,  an industry trade group,  said libraries can install privacy screens to shield children and other library patrons from pornographic content being watched on computer screens. “We’re concerned about any motion that would arbitrarily limit access to particular sites or content,” said a coalition official.

Eye Center: The Doheny Eye Institute will be leaving its headquarters on the USC Health Science campus in Lincoln Heights and moving into a four-story building in Pasadena purchased for $50 million. L.A. Business Journal

  1. Re LA Weekly article about a porn industry representative being against preventing porn from being viewed in public libraries. This quote is full of bologna:

    “Librarians and patrons should not have to tolerate lewd behavior or drug use in public, but limiting what people access online is anathema to free speech, and antithetical to the free flow of ideas,” FSC executive director Eric Paul Leue said via email. “Filtering software sounds like an easy solution, but we know that such software often casts an egregiously wide net, blocking not only sexually explicit content but also sexual health information, LGBTQ sites and sites like ours, which contains no sexual imagery whatsoever but discusses issues relevant to the adult industry.”

    Better to filter out some “health information” than to allow easy access to pornography in libraries where children are encouraged to use computers to find books and research for school work. If someone wants to watch porn they can do so on their own device. If they have no device, let them watch TV porn or read magazines. There is plenty of available porn for those who need it without it being easily accessible in public libraries.
