Stories We Missed
Sometimes there are stories that slip through the cracks, big and small, around LA and we don't get to them during the week. Stories We Missed is here to catch them and bring them to you. Better late than never, right?
- There is a whole lot going on at UCLA. Ladies are getting assaulted, the UC system might be getting its money out of Sudan and the "liberal education system" is under attack. We'll come back to the academic freedom question in a bit.
- LA Weekly redesigned their website making it, somehow, uglier and more confusing. You know, there's nothing wrong with copying the Village Voice in this instance, right?
- We didn't do much to remember MLK but that doesn't mean the rest of the city followed suit.
- Just as we're reminded that the Rampart scandal isn't old news in LA, Orange County gets its own cop drama.
- While nationally some are arguing that weakened regulations have lead to the recent mining accidents, locally it looks like changing regulations only means a little unchecked radiation. What, us worry?
- Who knew that when Latinos finally exercised their political will on the city that the first thing they would take over would be the theatre? (side note - we're intrigued by the ethnic component of the story. Outside of the fact that the players are Latino, it just seems like politics as usual to us.)
- Speaking of politics, new California campaign finance rules seem to (unintentionally?) favor independently wealthy candidates.
