The Morning's Stories: We Can't Stand The Rain

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

What kind of Southern California is this? Since July 1st, we've had over 25 inches of rain. Over two feet! This current storm is expected to drop another three inches on us over the long President's Day weekend. Watching local news this morning, we know that traffic accidents have already been caused. Maybe we'll just stay in today.

Speaking of traffic, The Daily Bruin reports on how each of our Mayoral candidates are pushing their own plans to ease your commute.

While The Daily News notes that the LAPD has to delay implementing their changed Use of Force Policy because they can't afford the training required, LA Weekly tries to make sense of the complexities of the Devin Brown situation. This gives us an excellent opportunity to point out LA Voice's look at the reactions around town that we missed earlier this week. Blogger Cathy Seipp gives the polar opposite viewpoint to the Weekly's take.

Also in LA Weekly is local blog star Tony Pierce's interview with former Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg. LAist interviewed Pierce just last month. Tony seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe we'll curl up with his self-published book this weekend instead of braving the rain.
