L.A. scribes at TNR


Jonathan Cohn, the former executive editor of The American Prospect and The New Republic, has a Los Angeles Diarist piece in the current TNR on the studies at UCLA and elsewhere that find Hispanics are healthier than other Americans, despite having less access to health care. He also talks to researchers who say Proposition 54, the Ward Connerly racial privacy measure, would stop their work cold. Added: Connerly's LAT op-ed today.

Joel Kotkin has a web-only piece on TNR's site giving his take on tactics Gray Davis could use to survive the recall, and how Republicans can beat him. Also, Jill Stewart sends word that she'll be contributing upcoming commentaries to The New Republic website.
