LA has unveiled a plan to spend $100 million on the homeless. The allocation includes many housing solutions, including establishing five "stabilization centers" around the city, which would be open 24-7 to provide services, treatment, and housing. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky says it's "a proposal of historic proportions." The Board of Sups is expected to vote on the plan next month.

A mistaken-identity gang shooting of a teenager has people paying attention to the Pico neighborhood of Santa Monica. Turns out Santa Monica has some brown residents. And some poor residents. Well, "poor" for Santa Monica means the median household income is $39,821 (around Montanta, median household income is $118,553). Homes in the Pico neighborhood go for $1.2 million. That's the ghetto, Santa Monica style.

Taft High School in Woodland Hills won the California Academic Decathlon last weekend and is headed to San Antonio for the national competition. For the last three years, California teams have won the national competition.

Speaking of winning, did you forget to watch the UCLA-Gonzaga game? Well a lot of Bruins will remember it for a long, long time.
