Julio Removed From Schoolyard, Sent Back to Mexico

* You've probably already seen LA Confidential but if you were asleep or in a coma when it came out, or just want to relive all the seedy 1950s Hollywood magic, tonight's you're night. Starring Kim Basinger, Russel Crowe and Kevin Spacey. Free, 8pm at the American City Diner near Chevy Chase Circle. [American City Diner]


* OK so you remember last week when we said "Michael Chabon is a Pulitzer prize-winninf author whose new book, The Yiddish Policemen's Union, contemplates what would have happened if all the Jews moved to Alaska instead of Israel after World II. (Bulldoxing ingloos, security fences made of ice, etc.) If you but the book at Politics at Pose, you get two free tickets. $12, 7pm at 600 Eye St. NW"? Well, this time it's true. [Sixth and I]

* A bunch of young playwrights wrote some plays and now they're getting performed by real actors at a real theatre on some sort of tour. We don't know if they're any good or how much it costs or if it's worth going to but it might good for a date. 7pm at 1901 Mississippi Ave. SE. Call 202-387-9173 for reservations. [THEARC Theatre]

* Khaled Hosseini is from Afghanistan and he writes books about it. Tonight, he is interviewed by by Phil Kendicott of the Washington Post and then will sign copies of his new book afterwards. $25, 7pm. Call 202-633-3030 in advance for tickets. [Freer Gallery]

* We can't afford the Paul Simon thing. [Ticketmaster]

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
