Editor's Dozen: Jan. 28-Feb. 3

If you need to catch up or just feel a hankering to review, these are some bests from the past week at LA Observed:

  1. Business, labor and the City Council all dodge one by agreeing to take the living wage referendum off the ballot.
  2. Gavin Newsom gets busted for schtupping his campaign manager's wife, and surprisingly comes clean. Villaraigosa then puts his ring back on.
  3. Crash course in Internet 101 for everybody at the Times, if it's not too late.
  4. Probation and house arrest for the first four Long Beach teenagers to be sentenced in the Halloween race beating.
  5. Michael Dukakis' crusade against driveway parking hasn't done much for Westwood, but our post on the ex-Massachusetts governor did inspire an email chiding our attitude.
  6. The county Board of Supes had their CAO on the hook, then lost him — and Boyarsky just has to shake his head.
  7. Laura Chick's re-interest in serving on the City Council.
  8. We listed every restaurant closure under the county's purview for three months.
  9. Dean Baquet surprised no one and took a job back at the New York Times, probably closing the era of big-name easterners jumping west. D.C. bureau chief Doyle McManus keeps a stiff upper lip for the troops, while new LAT editor Jim O'Shea realizes Los Angeles is big.
  10. Fleishman-Hillard's execs get the bad news from the judge: 42 months for Doug Dowie, 15 for John Stodder.
  11. The New Times team descended on the OC Weekly and lost themselves an editor and a columnist. Commie Girl's farewell.
  12. Wait until you see what LACMA wants to hang outside the front door.

Here's everything from the week in News & Chatter in one archive, the run at LA Biz Observed, or you can catch up on just the Morning Buzz entries.
