Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

How Los Angeles Copes with an Economic Downturn

So, I read this in today's New York Times online. While I regret supporting the cultural imperialism of NYC, I can't help it because the LA Times has been getting worse by the day. I think we're on our fourth new format in a year, this with more ads and more color. Pretty soon the text of the Sunday version will be indistinguishable from the ad inserts.

Apparently, neighboring Santa Monica is banning exercise on the green fairways that run down the middle of many of its streets except for jogging. I'm not sure what to make of it. It is honestly hard to imagine that it is such a priority that anyone would divert public resources, much less that it would attract attention from a newspaper on the other edge of the continent. At least we can conclude that suffering from the financial crisis remains subdued north of Montana Blvd.

It's just one particular median next to the famous Santa Monica steps. That makes it even more amazing that the New York Times would write about it. Perhaps they are trying to emulate All Things Considered on NPR?

LTG sounds like he needs coffee again. When he gets militant about small stuff, I think that the sign! Geeze, dude, get a double espresso and have a good Thanksgiving. Then go do sit ups on every green fairway in Santa Monica. ;-)
