IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME
Wally hasn't logged on in months because he's been busy. Wally has landed a book agent for his monster in the making -- Southern Soldiers. This is the long-awaited book on the Mexican Mafia and Hispanic street gangs in Los Angeles. Wally still can't seem to get anything published in the LAT opinion section. Even when the item is innocuous and doesn't disturb the delicate sensibilities of the LAT editors. But he's persevering. More to come. Wally needs to make about a zillion phone calls.
