has died at the age of forty-seven.
It was rather shocking that he wasn't even fifty. Even two decades ago, he seemed so old, so it's hard to believe he died while still a young man.
Anyway, the riots themselves were a milestone in the history of the Korean-American community, which I hope you'll read about here. They also were a turning point for the LAPD.
Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

Clearly no one from the NYT has ever been to Rialto.
Actually, neither have I.ReplyDelete
