Have you seen the Social Network? Remember the part where Sean Parker asks Eduardo, "Do you know how much I've read about you? Nothing." The L.A. Times is basically Eduardo Saverin. There are no embarassing incidents for the L.A. Times in recent memory because we have no memory of the L.A. Times.

^^Actually, let me not be so harsh. The L.A. Times is useful if you're trying to keep up with the latest news on Brangelina's adopted children or Linzy Lohan's suicide watch. But I would go to the NYT if I really wanted to know something about stuff like, ya know, markets, world affairs, politics, science, etc.

I think you should keep every dollar you have so you can continue paying down your subprime, underwater mortgage.

Hollywood High-Rise Plan: Are Taller Buildings And Pedestrian-Friendly Sidewalks In Our Future?

Quote:
In this storyline, the issue is whether it is time for a famously spread-out, freeway-centric city's best known tourist destination to begin looking a little more like New York City by adding a towering skyline and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks.
Riiiight.

literally the only time I hear of the NYTs is when it screws up, I do not know 1 person who accually reads it, and Im only ~200 Miles away from NY, so its not the huge national giant you think it is.

Not paying a monthly note is one of the benefits of living under a bridge.
