Veteran peace activist Dennis Apel says he was exercising his 1st Amendment rights when he was arrested after marking the start of the 2003 Iraq war by throwing some of his blood at a Vandenberg Air Force Base sign north of Santa Barbara. But after a second trespassing arrest at Vandenberg four years later, the military banned Apel from protesting in the area, including in a space across from the base's main gate along Highway 1, which had been specifically set aside for peaceful public protests.

Over the decades, the city of Los Angeles has named more than 1,000 architectural and historic landmarks: the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, the Theme Building at LAX, the entry gates of Chinatown.

Less than 600 square feet in size, the Wienerschnitzel outlet in Wilmington isn't much to look at. It's emblazoned in the colors of ketchup and mustard.
