Slate: Today's Papers
♦ Unless the L.A. Times search engine has it wrong, this is frankly just embarrassing for the hometown paper: today's New York Times runs an obituary on Frank Wilkinson, the Los Angeles city official who became a key figure in the Chavez Ravine controversies of the 1950s and who spent time in federal prison for refusing on First Amendment grounds (not the usual Fifth) to tell Congress whether he was a communist. (He was.) A judge finally ordered the FBI to stop spying on Wilkinson, who died Monday at age 91 in Los Angeles. Nothing in the Los Angeles Times, far as I can tell.
♦ Antonio: "It is wrong that this city in this nation is the capital of homelessness." (Daily News)
♦ Slow week at City Hall with the council dark, so Mayor Villaraigosa throws a press conference at 11 am to recap the city tax reforms that go into effect this year. Tonight at 9:15 is Ask the Mayor on KCAL.
♦ Disgraced corrupto-lobbyist Jack Abramoff's Beverly Hills High roots are revisited in the LAT.
♦ Sparklettsgate draws Steve Lopez's gaze up the hill to the DWP, and commissioner Nick Patsaouras is happy to oblige.
♦ Ryan Seacrest will become Mr E!, lead anchoring the nightly entertainment news and pretty much having the run of the place.
