How Los Angeles Has Changed

From the April 20, 1897 Los Angeles Herald:

Crime Against Nature
At 10:30 oclock last night Walter Parter, an old man, was brought in from Ballona township by Deputy Constable Hughes and placed in the county jail, charged with having committed a crime against nature. The details of his infamous crime are too revolting for publication.
These days, I suppose he would have to make a film badly attacking Islam to get that kind of attention.
