♦ A California outpost of the gun lobby is upset that Chief Bratton got a permit to carry a concealed weapon while others are turned down.
♦ Bloggers Andrew Hurvitz at Here in Van Nuys and Steven Rosenberg at 2,000 Days in the Valley have been all over the details and cultural import of the new Orange Line busway.
♦ My item last week on Susan Freudenheim joining the Jewish Journal as Senior Editor left out that Howard Blume, the former SE, becomes Managing Editor. Now you know.
♦ Correction of the day, from the New York Times: "The TV Watch column last Tuesday, about 'The Colbert Report' on Comedy Central, misstated the 'word of the day' invented for the show's feature 'The Word.' It was 'truthiness,' not 'trustiness.'"
♦ NYT baseball columnist Murray Chass adds his name to those who think Bobby Valentine will emerge as the Dodgers' manager, if not more. He sounds underwhelmed: "Valentine can resume his pursuit of Jimmy Dykes's record of 2,962 games managed without finishing in first place.
