Mecca of Taste

Y'know, I lived in Los Angeles for a decade, and though I started out with the East Coaster's instinctive distaste for everything about it, I did quickly grow to love it. And one of its charms was the wacky ideas you always encountered. However, "A Gangland Bus Tour, With Lunch and a Waiver" takes it just a little too far.

Looks like they did have at least moment of awareness, though:

... after careful consideration, it was decided not to have residents shoot water guns at the bus and sell “I Got Shot in South Central” T-shirts.

Supposedly, the money made from selling tickets will go to good causes, and the organizer of the project apparently has some street cred.

But still.
