MTA deal in works

Mayor Villaraigosa and the MTA unions will announce—and I quote—a "historic settlement" at the transit agency's office tower at 1:15 this afternoon. The mayor's office says it's historic because it's "the first time that a work stoppage and strike (due to the inability to reach an agreement on labor negotiations and contracts in past years) has been averted in 10 years."
