Los Angeles police detained 13 self-described anarchists for questioning Thursday after they were found "squatting" in a boarded-up duplex in the 5900 block of Melrose Avenue, police said. Noting that the Democratic Convention begins Aug. 14, Los Angeles Police Lt. Horace Frank said: "We have to take them seriously. If nothing happens, nothing happens." Frank said those detained, 10 adults and three juveniles, were from several different states.

YEARS AGO I ventured into the Walled City, an infamous block of metropolitan high-rise decay in Kowloon, in the heart of Hong Kong. I felt like Alice falling into an urban rabbit hole. A majority of the 50,000 residents who lived on a mere 6.5 acres rarely saw the sun. Some narrow streets led to nowhere. Surrounded by a modern metropolis, the decayed turf was owned by the Chinese government during the time Hong Kong was ruled by Britain.
