Google recently came out with its year-end Zeitgeist, featuring the "most popular for 2009"--globally, it was Michael Jackson--including "popular searches unique to specific U.S. cities." Here's how Los Angeles fared:

1. lausd
2. arclight hollywood
3. ucla library
4. lakers schedule
5. lapl
6. citrus college
7. riverside superior court
8. la county fair
9. unemployment california
10. arrowhead credit union

It's no surprise that the behemoth L.A. Unified School District tops the list, but who knew the Arclight Hollywood yielded so much interest (what about Arclight Sherman Oaks, huh?). It's nice to know we're so bookish with UCLA's library and the Los Angeles Public Library at numbers 3 and 5 with some Lakers pride stuck between.
