Here are the top posts from the last week. If you want to scan the whole past week of News & Chatter, click here — or here for the entire last week of Mark Lacter at LA Biz Observed.

  1. Sam Zell gets close...then closer...then wins control of Tribune...tells us a little about his plans...gets endorsements from David Hiller and Jim O'Shea...hears from David Geffen...gives to Republicans and Democrats...and already doesn't like Steve Lopez.
  2. Hollywood Bowl takes its local newspaper promotion dollars to the New York Times.
  3. The NYT also does a four-part video interview with Antonio Villaraigosa.
  4. Tyler Green on Edward Goldman on art...and KCRW's response.
  5. Convicted PR mogul Doug Dowie talks about his case and repeats his insistence of non-guilt.
  6. Looks like another strike-lockout phase for local supermarkets. After all, it went so well the last time...
  7. Examining the new publications Real Talk and The District.
  8. The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights acts rather po'd at the LAT.
  9. Gustavo Arellano is Tu Ciudad's nominee for "America's leading Mexican-American provocateur."
  10. Los Angeles New City Monthly hasn't appeared yet but gets a new name — already.
  11. How to get a table at Spago.
  12. Behold Malibu La Paz, a retail fairy tale with no crowds, traffic or unsightly parking lots. Yeah right.

Plus at Native Intelligence: Denise Hamilton announces the epigraphs she chose for L.A. Noir, and TJ Sullivan reports on the future of the L.A. Times website, the closure of Westwood's Famima store, and surveying Westsiders about traffic.
