Changing Times

• I have been a subscriber of the L.A. Times for about five years. Is it just me or can we now physically see how these cutbacks and layoffs are imapcting the paper? This morning holding the California, Business and Sports sections felt like I was holding one of those sections just a few years ago. Suddenly, the paper feels like a USA Today.

Moreover, it seems like since Mr. Hiller started, the paper has about half the stories it use to have just a couple of months ago. When I pick up the Sports section, it feels like the Lakers and Clippers moved to another city and the only reporting in that section is on the Kings. Where did all of the high school sports coverage go?

Pretty soon, the LA Times is going to be thinner than the Los Feliz Ledger.
