Steve Harvey's column of only in Los Angeles items was a staple of the LA Times Metro section when the paper actually had a local news section, and since 2008 he would appear occasionally in print and on the Times website. Now Steve's unique collections of quirky observations on Los Angeles will be here at LA Observed. The Times published a book of his Only in LA columns, and Steve is also the creator of The Bottom Ten — a slightly bent look at football that views things differently than the mainstream rankings. Steve will post here from time to time — his first new Only in LA offering in a while is live at Native Intelligence right now.
