    We had a few minutes over lunch today to dash across downtown and watch the marchers on Broadway make their way towards City Hall. KTLA reported that by this time over 25,000 had already arrived, and judging by the mass of people moving past 7th and 8th Streets waving flags, cheering, and blowing horns, those numbers were rising in leaps and bounds. Slipping back to find the lunch in "lunch hour" I passed a...

    After requesting a waiver from the Environmental Protection Agency to increase regulations on vehicle emissions in 2005, (so California might implement a law, passed in 2002 requiring reduced emissions for 2009 cars, light trucks, and S.U.V.'s) Governor Schwarzenegger decided waiting was for sissies, and today in Beverly Hills, pulled out a lawsuit. The five year delay was caused by the E.P.A., claiming it didn't have jurisdiction over auto emissions, and lawsuits from automobile manufacturers...

    It only took a few seconds before it was obvious that last weekend's Sumo Open was...something. Americans, Mongolians, Norwegians and Bulgarians (and a few other nationalities I'm sure we missed) gathered in L.A. to compete in an event that you'd be hard pressed to find in another U.S. city.

    If you're west of Vermont, and like parking anywhere close your home, you'll want to block out some time Tuesday night at 7 -- because some folks are about to make everything north of Franklin between Normandie and Edgemont, permit restricted parking. Anyone who's even visited this area knows street parking is already tough. This proposal will make it much, much harder...and street cleaning days? Yikes! There is only one meeting to voice your...

    (now imagine this with two suns) China grabbed some headlines the other day showing off their robotic moon probe, but since we've already got a couple roving away on another planet, our friends at the Jet Propulsion Labs have been looking into some other things. Like finding planets that orbit around twin stars, called binary systems. The new findings from the Spitzer Space Telescope suggest planets are just as likely to be found around...
