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.

This week's round-up of overheard quotes includes complaints about Botox, the hazards of working in The Industry and, as always, the kind of insanity you only hear about in Runyon Canyon.
