Tough times for neon museum

Neon LAThe Museum of Neon Art has to vacate its downtown space by the end of January. Talks on a new location have broken off, the Times' Christopher Reynolds reports today, and MONA appears destined to put its collection of neon art and signs in storage for awhile. Downtown activist Brady Westwater has been privy to the negotiations and finds the failure to secure a new home an indictment of the way City Hall does business.
