Alumni of the late Los Angeles Herald Examiner, as they called it toward the end, are gathering March 13 at the L.A. Press Club. The paper closed 19 years ago in November, so why not celebrate the almost-20th anniversary? Organizer Alex Ben Block will moderate a panel expected to include alums such as Daily News editor Ron Kaye, political reporter Linda Breakstone, Times Washington editor Don Frederick and Santa Monica city councilman Bobby Shriver. Jim Bellows, the editor who hired many of the HerEx graduates, may attend if his health allows. Merle Linda Wolin, whose sweatshops expose got a lot of attention back in the day, is said to be flying in from Hong Kong. Corky's was the local dive bar for HerEx staffers. Info
