Odds & Ends

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
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.

- Worldchanging goes in depth into how trees (and treepeople), or the lackthereof, has contributed to our city's tendency to flood for no good reason.
- The Daily Bruin left their Westwood digs to visit downtown and see what all the hubbub is about. And today, writes about the downtown housing crisis. Is it really a crisis? That language seems a little strong.
- There seem to be a lot of these stories lately: a southland community takes their imperiled local school and makes it better.
- Our own cache of Halloween stories is coming but whet your whistle with's discussion of Día de los Muertos.
- We can't decide if we should be happy that our local airport security isn't taking any threat for granted or annoyed that we can still remember when we weren't living in this "culture of fear."
- And finally, why is there always documented evidence whenever Paris Hilton sleeps with anyone?
