You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

Today we are all supposed to be thankful, so that's exactly what I am going to do, right now, in enumerated fashion, just for you.

1. Just to get all the obligatory thanks out of the way: I am thankful for my mom and dad, for all the rest of my family, for the people who try their best to live green every day and for all the good things that have ever happened to me and the people I love.

2. I am thankful for Los Angeles. No really, I am! I love that I live in a city where there is such grand diversity! So many different neighborhoods (which of course you can read about in LAist's Neighborhood Project) and so many different types of people!
