There seems to be a lot of crowd rage going on in Los Angeles, especially where seating and space is at a premium. I went to Barnes and Nobles for a cup of coffee and a read. brushed by a man with his leg sticking out into the aisle. He glared me down and made a snarky remark. He looked ready to kill. So, I downplayed it and said 'excuse me' in a nonchalant way.
