Around the LA Observed blogs this emotional weekend, Ellen Alperstein remembers "tiny, telling moments in the days immediately after 9/11 when we were raw and struggling with how we felt and how we were supposed to feel." Also at Native Intelligence, new contributor John Schwada thinks about the difference between ten years after Pearl Harbor and today, when "we can't move on because our nation's leaders want us to stay invested in a war-footing." And Veronique de Turenne stops by the memorial of American flags displayed on the Pepperdine University lawn overlooking the Pacific.
Recently at LA Observed:
- Schwada came to play, posting on Solyndra Inc. after looking through the solar company's SEC filings, on being Facebook friends with mayoral candidate Austin Beutner, on Eric Garcetti jumping in the race, on the politics behind the push to send Cruz Bustamante to India, and on meeting ex-gadfly Leonard Shapiro on the golf course.
- LA Biz Observed has been smokin' too. Mark's latest highlights include a Saturday update on the last-minute maneuvers in Sacramento and posts on AEG's stadium bill clearing the Senate, the problem with state tax revenues, the Golden Globes crisis being averted, and his take on the false expectations of Obama jobs speech. And that's just since Friday morning.
- Adrienne Crew's Angeleno Datebook returned from a summer hiatus, chock full of places to go and people to see.
- Plus lots and lots of media news, politics, books and more. Here's a rundown of everything from the past week at LA Observed
