AM news: fishy, prowler, budget and Bush
the fish live! - Since March 6, two goldfish have been living in LA River water in the newsroom at the LA Times. It's now June, and the fish are still doing swimmingly — although the tank could use a cleaning.
serial prowler - If you live in Arcadia, you might try using the AC at night instead of leaving the window open. Police warn that a petty thief has taken advantage of open windows and racked up more than 80 break-ins during summer months in Arcadia; now that it's warm, he might be coming for your jewelry and pocket change.
budget fun - Mayor Villaraigosa signed a $6.7 million budget for the city yesterday. The Daily News (grumpily?) focuses on the trash fee hike, which will fund new LAPD officers.
president popularity fun - Bush is the worst president since 1945, according to a new poll. We agree. The best recent president, according to the poll by Quinnipiac University, was Ronald Reagan. Well, compared to Bush, we suppose Reagan doesn't look so bad.
