Morning Buzz: Tuesday, 10.24.06

Click below to see what's up here at the start of the day: more shouting over the Measure R mailers, another Daily News blog and a correction o' the day from the Times — plus a lot more from around the beats.

Measure R mailers
Both the Times and Daily News follow the mini-controversy we reported yesterday over Laura Chick's name being used in pro-R mailings.
More Daily News blogs
Click by Josh Kleinbaum and Steve Rosenberg covers a potpourri of interesting stuff on the web, and includes a take that the LAT's Current section fetishizes the iPod. That makes 21 in-house blogs. Helpfully, the DN also now has a home page for its blogs.
Correction o' the Day
From the Los Angeles Times, which perhaps coincidentally (and perhaps not) has a Senior Assistant Sports Editor named Mike Kupper.
Baseball: In Sunday's Sports section, an article on the firing of Fox commentator Steve Lyons misspelled Yom Kippur, Judaism's Day of Atonement, as Yom Kupper.
Police Beat
Skid Row dumping
The LAPD opened a criminal investigation into ambulances from Los Angeles Metropolitan Medical Center dropping discharged patients on Skid Row.
Personal takes
No more OC Post, thank you
Rich Kane's Irvine neighborhood was inundated in free tabloids, then it suddenly stopped.
Reporter and his book
LAT staff writer Hugo Martin is out with a new children's book, Pablo's Christmas.
Big Philanthropy
LACMA, the Huntington Library and KCET are the only local institutions to place on the Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual Philanthropy 400 listing of top money raisers.
Mark Lacter and you
Catch the LA Biz Observed editor discussing today's business headlines on KPCC this morning, then tonight at 7 pm he talks about business reporting with KNX reporter Frank Mottek at a Society of Professional Journalists gathering at the Valley Economic Development Center in Van Nuys./div>
Joe Mathews and Jill Stewart
The LAT reporter and the political columnist talk about his new book, The People’s Machine, and Gov. Schwarzenegger tonight at the Press Club.
L.A. Obituary
Sandy West of the Runaways
The drummer for the all-woman L.A. band died of lung cancer at 47.
