A tape for LA and LA on 9/11 4 Years Later

A new Al-Qaeda tape was released and in it, the speaker said, "Yesterday, London and Madrid. Tomorrow, Los Angeles and Melbourne, Allah willing."

The article goes on to say:
In response to the threats against their city, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the city's police department released a statement this morning. They acknowledged that Los Angeles is a target for terrorists, but said there are no known, credible threats against the city and labeled the tape an instrument of al Qaeda propaganda.

Andrew Sullivan posts on his blog, A PERFECT MORNING: Four years later, another beautiful fall morning. That was the theme of his thoughts on September 16, 2001.

Today, in LA, it was not quite a perfect sunshine morning as it was overcast. But it soon burned away and turned into a perfect afternoon.

In Griffith Park there was a free concert called Symphony in the Glen for Grandparent's Day and a canned food drive for Hope Net who run food pantries for low-income people in LA.

At the Hollywood Bowl the program was Destination Hawaii.

Meanwhile, over at Dodger's Stadium the Dodgers kept their very slim playoff hopes alive by defeating the Padres 7-3.

Over at the Pico and Normandie part of LA, the LA Greek Festival encouraged people to enjoy life.

To the east, the Los Angeles County Fair says enjoy "Moooooosic under the stars" and to "Pig out" on all the great food options.

In the west-side, some would be found checking out the King Tut exhibit.
