Just Above Sunset
July 23, 2006 - Just what it should look like...

When I grow up I want to be a reporter, or maybe an editor so I can shout to my Lois Lane, Jimmy Olson or Clark Kent the words, "Great Caesar's ghost!"


And maybe I'd work in cool newspaper building, like this one, where the LA Weekly is put together each week, down on Sunset Boulevard.  That's our alternative paper out here.  Unfortunately, there's new management at Village Voice Media, the owners, and they cleaned house, getting rid of a lot of good people and laying down the law - no more left-leaning poltical analyses or hard news coverage, just stick to the arts and the local scene and alternative lifestyle stuff (read about that here).


But still, it's a cool building. And they haven't painted over the public "mission statement" yet.
