Sunset Stalker (The Return of...)

Overheard 52nd Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa discussing 'the homeless' at Craft on Constellation Ave. No irony there. Okay, so we're some distance from the Sunset Stalker's typical beaten path. But it serves to remind me of two restaurant and lodging encounters and then this story will wrap. One time we saw Monica Lewinski in a popular LA eatery. No sooner had she left than, well, lets call him Outsideleft Friend (at the time) #A, grabbed the chair that her bottom had been perched on and absconded or just plain ran out of the restaurant with it. It wasn't so much for Monica, but the closeness of her ass to the greatness that was Democratic President Bill Clinton. That proximity I think was what Friend #A was about.

Then there was the incident with the toilet seat in the favored suite of the reputed favorite Palm Springs hideaway of America's sometime sweetheart, Julia Roberts... I mean even if she hovers, in hotels, again, without wishing to be in the least bit vulgar, just that proximity of greatness would make that enormously desirable, I'd guess.

Now you may guess some of these episodes to be a little-bitty apocryphal. But the photographic evidence above supports some part of the tale.
