First an announcement: this is my last post as lead editor of LAist. I've got a new job that is taking much of my time. I love laist, though, so I'm staying on as "editor-at-large" which mostly means I get to post when I feel like it and bug everybody around here with my opinion on everything. Thanks for putting up with me on a daily basis for the last 10 months.

Carolyn Kellogg is now the new lead editor. She runs Pinky's Paper Haus and has been a contributor here for most of the past year. She's going to do an amazing job but I'll leave it to her to introduce herself more fully when she's good and ready.

Some of our most popular posts this week were written by her like:

- That Burger King story that riled up the vegans.
- And Tookie's Last Call
- Not to mention, the Hairy Chest Contest.

We also talked King Kong and the UCLA side of LAist held their heads high.

The Week in Full.
