One day on the Gold Line
I'm crouched and handcuffed, in a pool of my own blood, on the Highland Park Metro station platform, begging, “Help, someone, pleeease!” and crying out for my mommy. Passengers are walking in and out of trains but making a wide berth, staring, not ...

I am a 50-year-old Jewish woman, a single mother of a 13-year-old Afro-Jewish son, a writer and the owner of a PR firm in Pasadena. ” I was glad the year was almost over, the end of a rough one that included the un-blending of our blended family and the crushing impact of the recession on my previously thriving business. So I leave Union Station, get on the Gold Line and am gazing out the window when an LA County Sheriff’s deputy asks me for my ticket. I dig for my Metro Day Pass in the usual chaos of my bag. I find the receipt for the pass that indicated the date and time I bought it. I show it to the deputy, who gestures impatiently for me to follow him off the train. ” She searches me, shoving her hands roughly around my body, my breasts, around my waist and down under my underwear. I’ve never been patted down before, other than at the airport, and never this aggressively. Instinctively, I react to her hands jerking around my body, poking and grabbing. “Stop — you’re hurting me,” I cry and pull to the side. I try to lean back but choke on the blood. The female deputy remains impassive and silent when I ask her, “Why did you hurt me. ” Months later, when my attorneys show me that video, I am both horrified and reassured that my memory was accurate. There really is a large pool of blood on the platform — coming from me. Part way through the video, the supervisor asks, “Ma’am, are you hurt.
Bloomberg Wins Bidding For BusinessWeek Posted by: Tom Lowry on October 13, 2009. Bloomberg LP, the global financial data and news empire created by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, is the winning bidder for BusinessWeek. BusinessWeek editor-in-chief Steve Adler told his staff shortly after the deal was announced Tuesday that part of the deal guaranteed that McGraw-Hill benefits would be extended to employees for one year after the deal closes. For Bloomberg, buying BusinessWeek will be its first major acquisition ever and a significant departure for a 28-year-old company nurtured on a “build, don’t buy” culture. “The BusinessWeek acquisition will yield huge benefits for users of the Bloomberg terminal, for our television, online and mobile properties,” says Daniel L. Doctoroff, president of Bloomberg LP and a former deputy mayor of New York City appointed... “We couldn’t be more excited…We are not buying BusinessWeek to gut it. We are buying it to build it. ”. The deal also signals a shift by Bloomberg into more consumer-focused media. “The reporting and analytical resources of Bloomberg and BusinessWeek are unparalleled in their ability to deliver timely, distinctive and credible content to an influential and highly sought-after audience,” says Bloomberg LP Chairman Peter Grauer.
We casually brought up the topic of weddings to our workshop members to write about, thinking that it would go nicely with the current exhibit of wedding dresses at Pasadena Museum of History, where our public reading will be held this Saturday. Now in its fourth year, The Pasadena Writers’ Project was originally founded by local writer and entrepreneur Carla Sameth and local author, Jervey Tervalon. Gale Cohen, local writer and arts organization “guru” is the co-director along with Carla Sameth. The opening lines we got were not “The creamy white organza framed her angelic face …” Instead we got “Both Ben and Tenolia were the children of slaves,” just a hint of the shadows and thorns this topic would unearth. Yet, even with provocative opening lines there were still many first drafts that were too simple, too storybook, as if they did not want to stain the white organza of our popular culture. Our writing process and the work birthed below are a testament that weddings and marriages cause a confusing storm of emotions when capturing on the page, because that’s exactly how it is in real life. Members of the Pasadena Writing Project will read from their work from 11 a. m. to 2 p. m. Saturday at the Pasadena Museum of History, 470 W. Walnut St. , Pasadena.
