LA Weekly writer to ghost Riordan's memoir

Patrick Range McDonald, a staff writer at the Weekly, has been tapped to co-write the memoir of former Los Angeles mayor Richard Riordan. "Some people may wonder, because I'm a liberal Democrat openly gay man, why am I helping to write a memoir about a Republican?," McDonald says in the Weekly. "But Riordan always been strongly in favor -- going back years -- of gay rights and gay marriage." He'll be taking the next six months off to work on the project. McDonald was one of eight local journos honored as journalists of the year last month by the Los Angeles Press Club.
