everybody's got a sky cam

The end of the 6pm episode of The Simpsons got interrupted today by "breaking news" of a car chase. These are pretty boring... Just long shots of a suspect driving down a freeway usually. A portion of today's chase happened to head down the 10 west, which I can see from my apartment. I walked out to the balcony and counted eight helicoptors over the freeway. KCAL9 (or CBS2) looked to be in the lead, followed by ABC7. Most of the others were less bold in their coloring, so I couldn't tell who was who. Right now I just want this to clear so I can take that freeway to get over to Venice Beach for dinner.
