Arnold Schwarzenegger to call for deep spending cuts, plead for U.S. aid | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times
"'As bitter as the words are in my mouth, we face additional cuts,' Schwarzenegger said in his State of the State speech before lawmakers Wednesday. 'We know what that means. We know the pain it entails. I mean, what can we say at this point except the truth, that we have no choice?' . . . The governor will call for $8 billion in aid from Washington. If the funds don't come through, he will propose the wholesale elimination of CalWorks, the state's main welfare program, as well as a program that provides in-home care to the elderly and disabled." <-- god, I hate california sometimes.

Modern-day share-cropping -- latimes.com (June 2009)
"Los Angeles County has nearly 3,800 plots in 60 public community gardens, but nearly all have waiting lists. Eight acres in Long Beach accommodate 308 gardeners, but volunteer coordinator Lonnie Brundage says the waiting list has been capped at 85 -- and she still she receives about 30 phone calls a week from residents eager to dig in. . . . With demand outpacing supply, grass-roots efforts are underway to help apartment dwellers and condo owners who have the will to till, but not the land. Some call it share-cropping, though others prefer terms such as garden swapping or yard sharing. The idea is the same: Would-be gardeners get a place to plant and tend, and homeowners lacking the time or interest to garden themselves can share the fruits of someone else's labor." ---or you know, the city could zone a lot more community gardens! and so on

so we have a drought, we have the lowest municipal water usage in 32 years, we just had a major fire, and now ancient pipes are bursting all over the city. mystery = lack of comprehension of patterns of occurrence.

D.A. to retry Lisker in mother's 1983 slaying -- latimes.com
why is the d.a. doing this?guy served 26 years for a conviction that's now been overturned as based on faulty evidence . . . are we so punitive that we have to spend tax dollars trying dig up new evidence after more than a 1/4 century, given that I'm pretty sure that double jeopardy means they can't just try to convince a whole new dozen people to convict on the same evidence that's already been successfully challenged? srsly, what is the damn point?

Villaraigosa says local governments should unite in effort to finish Westside subway [Updated] | L.A. Now | Los Angeles Times
now that he's dealing with the idea that he screwed up his chance to run for governor, I guess he's trying to rebuild his local legacy. at least that's something. also, yes, what the hell, subway along wilshire must get past westwood before 2036! (of course, this and other things would be easier if we could draw on the beverly hills taxbase directly and not have to put up with their intransigence or that of other such islands of smugness and wealth . . . always always about where you draw the boundaries of the polity, isn't it?)

Maguire Properties to default on 7 prime office buildings - Los Angeles Times
article is mostly about orange county, but "Maguire Properties is downtown L.A.'s largest office landlord and considers the city's financial district its primary market. Other holdings there include U.S. Bank Tower, the tallest building in the West." also one of the ugliest, maybe. at least, I'm not fond of it.

William Bratton: A top cop - Los Angeles Times
I missed out on kpfk coverage yesterday, but kpcc was practically falling all over itself with praise. he's an important person for sure, from boston's broken windows to new york's aggressive compstat revival, to the more quiet but almost relentless sense of rising middle class safety in los angeles lately. on the whole, he did a lot better here than I expected. one reason why is roughly this bit: "The difference is that under Bratton the tensions dissipated, in large part because the chief made it clear that he took anger and outrage seriously, that while he backed his officers, he was willing to question their actions, training and command, and that he was intent on making sure the same mistakes never happened again." can't speak to whether is really true, but at least he gave off this appearance in los angeles (unlike in new york).

Water demand in Los Angeles reaches a 32-year low, DWP says - Los Angeles Times
fails to mention any connection with the amount of current rental vacancy--not everything is about virtuously not watering your lawn--my guess is that at least part of this statistic is related to what I perceive to be a concurrent drop in actual population. my perception is entirely anecdotal, but I'd be curious to see what the real stats show.

Julius Shulman's photos promoted the allure of Southern California living - Los Angeles Times
"all the ways his work helped pry modern architecture loose from the demands of the city and from the sense of social mission that inspired its European pioneers in the early years of the 20th century" maybe I don't have to write the little thing on shulman as propagandist for the co-opting of modernism by suburbia that I was thinking I might have to get off my ass and write...cuz I could just have christopher hawthorne do it for me, and then nitpick the details. why not.

LAX parking lot is home away from home for airline workers
"For several years, clusters of RVs were scattered around the airport's parking lots until LAX officials decided to consolidate them in Lot B. Now operating as an organized camp overseen by the airport, it has an unofficial mayor, a code of conduct and residency requirements, including background checks, regular vehicle inspections and proof of employment at an air carrier. . . . About 10 people are on a waiting list." --I had no idea the people of Lot B were so tightly regulated. I had just figured that they had sussed a system exploit--at $9 a day to park, I think it's cheaper than any other place to put an RV except for streets where the cops will harass you if you don't move every 72 hours.

Santa Monica rail yard idea stirs alarm at arts complex - Los Angeles Times
it's like people enjoy killing good rail development in this town. making bergamot station a yard again is beyond retarded--it should be a destination-station. there's already an attraction people want to reach, it's already along the existing right of way. ugh, why even bring it up?
