Sign of the (L.A.) Times

Author J. Michael Walker didn't mind that three brochures for local arts institutions — REDCAT, the L.A. Art Show and the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage — tumbled out his Sunday newspaper. He did mind that they fell out of his New York Times, not his Los Angeles Times. Walker blogs:

One couldnít help thinking how their placement in the NYT must register as yet another none-too-subtle dismissal of the cultural relevance or importance of the handful of critics still soldiering on at the LAT. So sad.

Walker's book, "All the Saints of the City of the Angels: Seeking the Soul of L.A. on Its Streets," was published last year and his artwork was featured for a good chunk of the year at the Autry National Centerís Museum of the American West.
