The Week in Weeklies

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.

By week's end, LA is littered with dozens of free rags. LAist reads the weeklies so you don't have to. If there's anything we missed, let us know, or better yet drop it in the comments section below.

LA Weekly reviewed the gaffe-filled Q & A between Democratic presidential hopefuls and Hollywood gays. While not one candidate came out clearly in support of gay marriage, Bill Richardson slipped so hard as to insinuate that gayness is an opt-in lifestyle. Why'd they even show up? Oh yeah, $$$$$.

Also, Jessica Koslow interviewed Chuck D on the 20th anniversary of Public Enemy. Chuck D managed to compare PE to both the Beatles and the Stones -- and when it comes to the rap game, little argument can be made.
