Changing of the glass

Edgy it's not, but the Times' not-quite-a-blog on inauguration week has had some
pretty good items. Today Steve Hymon went to Hahn's free exit lunch on the City Hall portico and Jessica Garrison chatted with Villaraigosa about tomorrow's speech ("I am going to ask people to dream and think big about Los Angeles....There won't be any surprises"). But Jeff Rabin posted the capper: minutes before 5 p.m., a City Hall worker struck the name of James K. Hahn from the third floor. The glass plate outside the door now reads "Office of the Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa."
