The only interesting thing your example did was try to start the reactor
more than once.  There's no way to do that. ;)

If you want to do more than one thing, then just do more than one thing.
You don't need to stop the reactor until the entire program has completed
and you are ready for the process to exit.

If you're trying to figure out how to organize your code so that you can
do one thing after another thing has finished, then you should look at
Deferreds, since that is precisely what they are good for.  Your example
included a Deferred, in fact - LoopingCall.start() returns one which is
called back when the stop() method is called on that LoopingCall instance.
