Slate: Today's Papers
Terry Christensen wasn't the only new name charged as a Pellicano accomplice yesterday, the police commission takes a pass, the Weekly goes to Tijuana and Gridskipper goes to Culver City—those and a new Dodgers (official) blog after the jump.


♦ An SBC employee from Burbank was also arrested and charged in the Pellicano investigation. You do wonder how many L.A. lawyers are quaking in their briefs this week.
♦ Police commission: We're staying with the no-names policy.
♦ Bottom line: UCLA and USC have some bucks.
♦ Could it be the Times' problem isn't quality, politics or ad rates—but Los Angeles itself? John Stodder has a thought on it.
♦ In the LA Weekly, Josh Kun goes south of the border in search of Jorge Hank Rhon, Tijuana's presidente municipal: "They call him a criminal, a murderer and the worst mayor in Tijuana history." And Brendan Bernhard reads his old report cards.
♦ Gridskipper checks out Ford's Filling Station, the new restaurant from Benjamin Ford in Culver City.
♦ The Dodgers PR director and other front-office types are blogging from spring training. Meanwhile, the New York Times does a story on the Dodgers' new first baseman.
♦ Here's a blog devoted to the last place finishers in every Olympic event. Pointer from Steve Smith.
