The Raise Hell for Molly Ivins Pots & Pans Protest to End the War in Iraq is a long-titled, multi-city event worth breaking out your tinniest Teflon for. Before her death, columnist Ivins wrote, "Raise Hell . . . Hit the streets." So that's what we should do — like giant angry toddlers. Signs and pots and/or pans will be provided if you don't bring your own. West Los Angeles Federal Building, 11000 Wilshire Blvd., L.A.; Fri., Jan. 18, noon-1 p.m.; free. (310) 450-5592. Fri., Jan. 18, 12-1 p.m., 2008
