I have decided the writing in the LA Times isn't as good as the NY Times. But the LA Times is also less intimidating. It's like going to a state college versus a real school.
Some interesting LA stories:
Japanese Gang Members Get Liver Transplants
Yikes. I thought only alcoholic celebrities got preferential livers. Note to self: if I need an organ, get out of LA.
Smoking May be Banned in Apartments
I love civil liberties, but even I was secretly glad when Bloomberg banned smoking in bars in NYC. But this story reeks of CA Kookiness. No smoking in your own home. If people wanna ruin their lives, let them.
Dodgers Fan Shatters Jaw
This story is a doozy. A broken bat flew into a woman's face and shattered her jaw. At first glance, I have a hard time feeling bad for any person who can afford seats close enough to shatter a face. But then I read further and couldn't help feeling bad for this gal. She's a single Mom. The Dodgers won't pay anything.
Worst of all...she was hit in the face by a Colorado Rockie, Todd Helton. If I didn't already full-blown hate about 15 teams I would add the Rockies to the list (but I just don't have the energy).
The Rockies are a Christian team and they consider character when signing players. Blech. When the Red Sox were sweeping the Rockies in the World Series I would text my friend, Jess Allen, "Where is your God now, Rockies?" I can now add "shatter faces" to the list of Rockies offenses.
