The topic of the Zócalo Public Square panel scheduled March 10 at the Petersen Automotive Museum is What kind of newspaper does Los Angeles deserve? The panel will include former City Councilman Michael Woo and LA Times columnist Sandy Banks, but let's face it, the draw is Orange County Register owner Aaron Kushner. He should be the focus of a lot of speculation by then, and hopefully have more details to share, about the upcoming Los Angeles Register. Let's hope he is prodded into some discussion on how the LA Register will stand out from his competition here, the LA Times and the LA News Group papers. Joe Mathews, Zócalo's California & Innovation Editor, will be the moderator.
