It's one thing for traffic to grind to a halt because of an act of God. But it's a whole different story, insist aggravated motorists, when city bureaucrats barricade portions of post-earthquake freeway detours and alternate routes in order to undertake unrelated road and drainage repairs. That's the case on the Westside near Beverly Center, where bedeviled drivers are fuming about a pair of long-planned projects that have added a new layer of frustration to an already hellish commute.

All day long, cars stream down Robertson Boulevard, but the shady sidewalks north of Pico Boulevard are quiet. The local shops have a subdued, inward-looking air. You never know what you may find. In the case of Joyce Cafe, it's a long, narrow dining room without any of the usual clues that this is a Chinese restaurant. Along one wall runs a banquette upholstered in a Cubist pattern: middle-period Joan Miro, perhaps.

I just jogged past a bald guy carrying a tray of Starbucks coffee on Rodeo Drive. I slow down. Wasn't that Ben Kingsley? Nah. Gandhi wouldn't be schlepping coffee around on the street. A few blocks away, I slow to a trot again, at the corner of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Boulevard, when I spot a gorgeous blond woman with big hair and a low neckline. Isn't she on "Desperate Housewives"? No, probably not. I'm on a group jog of L.A.'
