Coffee break news: Gov "race," the chief, the hungry

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The Stompinator - What is it about us Democrats that we nominate the pencil-neckiest, geekiest guy of them all to go up against Arnold Schwarzenegger? This strategy that we can paint a popular action star as a puppet of Washington is preposterous. Sigh. How about we save the millions of campaign dollars and just give the gubernatorial election to Arnold right now? Oh, in case you missed it, Phil Angelides has won the democratic nomination for Governor.

above the fray - While stuck in traffic, have you ever dreamed of zooming above the freeways in a helicopter, bypassing rush hour? Well, Chief Bratton has, and he's made his dreams a reality; he's even used city-owned prop planes instead of commercial flights to get to Sacramento and back. It's about efficiency. Really.

please, sir - This year, 670,000 Angelenos will go to food banks to feed themselves and their families; that's 22.5% more than in 2001. Officials blame the high cost of housing. Who are the hungry? 57% are adults, 28% are children and 15% are seniors. A whopping 84% are U.S. citizens, and 53% earn less than $10,000 a year
