That there Jason Toney's got some pretty big shoes. Behind the scenes at LAist, he has been universally kind and gentle with us contributors. And up front on LAist you probably have noticed that he's smart, witty and engaged with the city in a way that is always interesting. Thank goodness he's not really leaving.

So I can only aspire to fitting my small, sometimes obnoxious feet in his footsteps. Thankfully Marleigh is here to shove me on track if I stray from the path. And I hope that you, too, will chime in. Our comments door is always open.
