Another Terrace Morning




Banksy bombs LA off Sunset. &c., The Dirt Floor.

CD 12 Candidate forum tonight in Granada Hills, with Linus and Lucy moderating.

There are so many issues that distinguish the candidates in LAUSD school board races that the Times decided to write about the one that doesn't distinguish them at all: fundraising. A ridiculous piece cuts and pastes from financial reports. Voters are left in the dark again regarding what anyone stands for. The Daily News also runs the same rubric.

No on O, the locally pumped oil tax, the Times says. I guess it's worried about driving grasshoppers out of town.

Feds clamp down on Armenian Power, a local organized crime ring. That credit card skimming operation affected a lot of people--and a lot of banks--in town.

Again, the Weekly says that the winner of CD 14 may need as few as 6,000 votes. Again, we wonder why. The charcoal-starter is also about ten weeks late to the party on the CD 12 race. More about fundraising, which is to say, more journalists clicking around rather than talking to communities.
