Out of Town Pool Report #12
Los Angeles
March 13, 2018

Motorcade arrived at the RON hotel, the Intercontinental Los Angeles
Downtown, at 9 pm local time. No news from the ride, but it provided a
lovely view of the bright lights of nighttime LA as we wound back down
the hills along windy streets from the exclusive enclave of Beverly

Streets all around the hotel are closed. A small crowd of maybe 100
protesters were a block away chanting something your pool couldn't
make out.

Your pool is staying at a separate hotel nearby. We have a lid.

One detail from earlier that I forgot: The guests at the fundraisers
were mainly dressed in business formal, though a few did not get the
memo and wore black tie. One woman cheerfully greeted your pool with a
bright "Maga!"


Many thanks to Brian Bennett for the terrific help and camaraderie today.
