Anyone know what this is about?

For a few years now, I've seen small wood cutouts swinging from power/phone lines over Rancho Park's intersections.  The latest version looks like a burglar complete with a fedora, trench coat and bag of money.  One side is painted gold and the other, black.  It appears to be hanging from a string and the other end is usually tied to a padlock, presumably used to toss the…

Book review: Los Angeles's The Palms Neighborhood
