When I saw this photo on Facebook this morning, my second thought was “good…a cartoon character about to be shot through the head by Jason Bourne.” Then I thought of all the wonderful, starry-eyed kids out there who love the Ice Age characters and would be upset by this image, and certainly by this notion. I’m sorry for sharing this thought just now. I want only to think gentle, positive things about everyone and everything. Thank God for family-friendly animated features and all the money they make for the corporations who fund them.

Taken last night at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave.
