This Week's Most Commented & Recommended
When you read something you like on LAist, we love it when you hit the "recommend" button, and we love it even more if you put your two cents' worth in the comments. Getting a dialog going with our readers and making sure we're giving you content you can use are top priorities for us.

So here are this week's top posts, as endorsed by you via the recommend feature, or as indicated by the level of talk going on in the comments:
Win Tickets to David Byrne at the Greek Theatre The former Talking Heads frontman hits the stage at the Greek and we'll be sending a lucky reader to the show. You can still enter, just head over to the post and follow the instructions!
The Worst Idea In History As our writer mentions, no, it's not the big bailout in the news that's the worst idea ever, but rather that Hollywood wants to revisit Moby Dick with some big changes. Like, uh, it won't begin "Call me Ishmael" because he's now a second banana. So why all the comments...where to begin?
It's Official: Texting While Driving = Illegal It was inevitable...first it was the shift to talking only hands-free, and now as of the new year, we will need to put that damn phone down completely, because txt msging is O-U-T.
Hockey's Back! Monday night was the opening game of the LA Kings' pre-season, and LAist was there at the Staples Center to capture the excitement and the team in action. Keep your eye on the new recruits for this "rebuilding season"--"the Kings are on a youth movement with a lot of young new names like Voynov, Hickey and Doughty."
MSM Picks up on C0$ The news doesn't typically follow the Scientology beat, but they jumped at this one. Excellent video tagline, incidentally, cbs2.com: "Church of Scientology Annoys Hollywood Neighbors."
Non-Scientologists Live on L Ron Hubbard Way? Oh, and it was this story they were picking up on, which we ran the day before, about residents of the former Berendo Way who are now neighbors to the Scientologists.
