Afternoon snacks

One of those kinda newsy days...

  • Adam Gadahn, SoCal's man in Al Qaeda, became the first American since the 1940s to be indicted for treason. Actual treason, not the Ann Coulter anybody who disagrees with our president kind.
  • Cory Lidle, the Yankees pitcher who died today when his light plane hit an apartment in Manhattan, was a local kid who lived in West Covina.
  • Tonight's Life & Times on KCET profiles Leo Greene, a reporter at the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin who was diagnosed with ALS in August. He is chronicling his deterioration for the paper.
  • LAist contributor Zach Behrens was elected to the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council.
  • L.A. Times critic Ann Powers has a personal blog where she posts occasionally about music and about the joys of her new life in Los Angeles. (Spotted by John Stodder)
  • Hollywood's Old Spaghetti Factory may not be going anywhere after all. The softening real estate market apparently claimed development plans for the property.
  • Council President Eric Garcetti will receive the New Frontier Award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and Harvardís Institute of Politics in November.
  • Rip Rense deconstructs the Al Martinez column-rant about bloggers and finds it spookily personal.
