Another Terrace Morning


Plastic-free zone.


If you don't know, yesterday went like this: Harris pulled further ahead of Cooley, then plateaued. The County passed a widespread plastic bag ban yesterday for the County's unincorporated areas, which includes a 10 cent charge per paper bag distributed; Yaroslavsky calls it a strike against "urban tumbleweeds." The LAUSD canceled a $3.7 million construction consulting contract with Consilia LLC, mostly because it looked like it had performed its work as a subcontractor, a District no-no. And Bill Nye the Science Guy collapsed mid-sentence in a speech to students at USC, and students responded by tweeting it.

A guy at Breitbart's big bluehair blog gets a traffic ticket and sees a vast conspiracy.

Some words in defense of Venice's "mobile-migratory lifestyle", from one of the practitioners.

Unrelated: a civic Med420 tax will hit the March ballot.
