Editor's Dozen

Editor's Dozen: Feb. 4-10

Twelve of the best from last week, in case you weren't paying attention. If you prefer to scan the entire week of News & Chatter, here's every headline.

  1. Details of what O.J. Simpson kinda-sorta confessed to Judith Regan. He's convincing as a murderer — hmm, I wonder why?
  2. Meanwhile, News Corp. is keeping Regan's severance package awfully quiet.
  3. Downtown bloggers know what to do when a fire rouses them out of bed — go outside and take pics.
  4. The rest of the Long Beach hate-crime teens go home.
  5. The Times' Jill Leovy starts a homicide blog, with the goal of reporting on every single killing in Los Angeles County every day.
  6. LAT keeps Davan Maharaj away from the New York Times and makes him Business Editor, and steals its new website editor from the NYT family. Maybe she'll know when a Steve Lopez blog is not a Steve Lopez blog.
  7. Variety, LA Voice and the Los Angeles Fire Department blog all make big changes online.
  8. Doug Dowie options a script about City Hall and anonymous blogs.
  9. Much ado about American Apparel's topless billboard at Sunset and Alvarado. They're still talking about it at Chicken Corner.
  10. Schmoozing with the Clippers at their morning shoot-around in New York, via LA Observed video.
  11. Ernest Rady, the LA Jolla billionaire whose home was taken over by a single invader, might be just a little too trusting.
  12. What it's like to fly in one of those giant new Airbus jets, soon to be at an international airport near you.

Here's the whole week of Morning Buzz too.
