USC reporter confronts Yaroslavsky

When Alex Comisar of NeonTommy, the USC news website that recently launched, was rebuffed in an interview request of Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, he took it public and confronted Yaroslavsky in the public comment period at the Board of Supervisors meeting. All's well that ends well — the transcript of their exchange is at NeonTommy.

Also: A NeonTommy contributor reports on being part of the LAPD lockdown following a crash and shooting near USC.
