Hopefully, it wasn't too disruptive - although, it is exciting to have the President in town. D

Hello Kim and Kristine,  Got to this one late but was not down there to be concerned about traffic.  LA has got to be one of the last places you need traffic diverted completely off one street or another.  Mark
