Jacob and the jet

Jacob and jetLA Observed's man with the video camera, Jacob Soboroff, greeted the A380 Airbus this morning at LAX. Check it out at Native Intelligence: He's got interviews with the French pilot who flew the world's biggest airliner from Toulouse and with airport commission president Alan Rothenberg.

SpectorAlso at Native Intelligence: LA Observed contributor Deanne Stillman, who has been covering the Phil Spector case for the New York Observer and elsewhere, writes about where Tom Wolfe and his fawning 1964 piece on Spector fit in the story: "Lana Clarkson 'kissed the gun?'
