Editor's Dozen: April 15-21

Some review-worthy posts from the past week at LA Observed...

  1. Villaraigosa's school bill was dealt a near-fatal blow at the appeals court, leading to some cooler press handling for the mayor.
  2. Jonathan Gold brings a Pulitzer to the LA Weekly, as predicted — not that the New Times guys seemed all that thrilled.
  3. Times foreshadows the next round of buyouts and loses design director Joe Hutchinson.
  4. Sibelius interruptus on a Friday afternoon at Disney Hall.
  5. It pays to be a professor at USC (and a little less at UCLA.)
  6. Don't invite KPFK's Eva Georgia and Molly Paige to the same party.
  7. Here are the L.A. area ZIP codes that are giving the most to the candidates for president — and the political operatives who wrangle Hollywood checkbooks.
  8. Neal Pollack takes in a game from the rightfield Pavilion at Dodger Stadium and lives to eat again, while Echo Park fights the Dodgers over the Scott Avenue gate — the $632 million Dodgers.
  9. David Davis on why L.A. won't be hosting the 2016 Olympics.
  10. Dustin Hoffman's eyes, David Rensin's hair and Jacob Soboroff's video at Native Intelligence.
  11. More death rattles for Internet radio.
  12. Transitions: new editor at Angeleno, new dean at Annenberg, new boss at Cultural Affairs, new flack for Jerry Brown, new job for Dave Lesher, new magazine for bloggers, plus Tony Tranfa, Jerry West and Todd Boyd.

Plus: The whole week of News & Chatter and LA Biz Observed easily browsed in one place, and a winner in our first ticket giveaway for LA Observed Insiders.
