Gregory Rodriguez in Glendale tonight; Ron Kaye's first time

This one is made for you. Times scribe Gregory Rodriguez, author of a book with a really long title, is at Glendale's Central Library auditorium tonight at 7 p.m., talking about his favorite subject, Mexican American and Anglo American race relations, and probably some other things. I met him recently and he knew me from the blogosphere and didn't seem to like me; but I know he's a busy guy, what with Zocalo, the City's best public speaker series, where they give away great catered food and wine after each event as a vurrry compelling lure. Anyway, if you have a chance, go, and find out what things are like when an auditorium turns the mike on him.

Also, a scribe's best friend, Ron Kaye, the recently retired lord of the Daily News, has a new blog, his first. RonKayeLA.com you can bet will be trafficked by lots of scribes trolling for stories they should be out making phone calls about. It should be a treat to watch the unedited thoughts of the editor unfold, and how things echo in local print a couple of days later.
