Once around some blogs

Catching up on my reading:

 LA.com catches Susan Estrich un-wowing at the William S. Paley Television Festival. On her website, Estrich sort-of apologizes for bringing up Michael Kinsley's health in email. No apology for her comment about the private life of Mayor Jim Hahn's estranged wife.
 FishbowlLA gets an explanation from Vanity Fair about his catch that Sally Horchow wrote about the Proscenium Club at the Music Center in the Hollywood issue without disclosing she is the group's co-founder.
 More mayoral election dissection at LAVoice, LAist, Marc Cooper, Mayor Sam, Phoblographer (who says to Joel Kotkin you can't get much more middle class than Hahn's neighborhood in San Pedro) and BoifromTroy, who was nice enough to mention that National Journal's Hotline said "L.A. Observed...offers perhaps the best day-by-day coverage of the race." Traffic is definitely up around the election, and it's been nice to see on the logs that in the first nine days of March 360 new visitors have added L.A. Observed to their browser's favorites.
 Ken Reich says the Times misses Howard Rosenberg.
 Schadelmann explains why Journalspace sucks.
 LAFD invites you to join a St. Patrick's Day parade at Pershing Square.
 Cinemocracy sports a new design.
 Eating L.A. goes Indonesian on National Blvd.
 LAPD Wife passes along a note from another wife whose husband didn't walk through the door at his usual 3 a.m.
 Towelroad figures out that Michael Jackson watched the Brady Bunch.
 Dodger Thoughts takes a new web address.
