By week's end, LA is regularly littered with a handful of free rags. Combined, these publications put the Tribune Company's Spring Street operation LA Times to shame as far as reporting on the dozens of municipalities that make up this metropolis of more than 12 million people. 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.

OC Weekly -- R. Scott Moxley lampoons OC Sheriff Mike Carona's European vacation with his spring break buddies. The (unauthorized) photos are priceless. That's what you get for moronically drinking away public funds, Mike!

Downtown News -- Evan George profiles the Cornfield, or Rio De Los Angeles State Park, as it will officially be renamed April 21. Overlooked last week -- Sam Hall Kaplan waxes poetic on L.A. architecture in his op-ed that was originally slated for the canceled Brian Grazer-edited LAT Current.
