Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We're jumping in the mix a little late in the action, since LA Taco's Taco Madness 2012 bracket-style showdown is in its "final four" stage, but there are still a few days left for you to have your say and speak up about who makes the best damn taco in Los Angeles.

These tense tortilla-encased final moments include last year's champ, Mexicali, pitted Guisado's, with the latter attempting to do what hasn't been done in the past couple of years: unseat Mexicali. Then there's Mariscos Jalisco against Tacos Baja Ensenada; as LA Taco puts it: "This battle of East Los Angeles seafood tacos should be one for the ages." Agreed: It's loco!

Where does your loyalty rest? Voting for the final four is open until midnight, Sunday, April 1. The finals will run from Monday the 2nd until Tuesday the 3rd at midnight when the city's 2012 favorite taco will be crowned.
