LA Streetsblog: Help Pick the Tagline

The tech work being done to move Street Heat to Streetsblog is almost complete and LA Streetsblog ought to be here soon. Before the final touches are made and the move is complete, I need a little help from all of you, especially you Angelenos.

I need help coming up with a tag line. The New York Times has "All the News That’s Fit to Print," and Streetsblog has "Covering the New York City Streets Renaissance" so what should the tagline be for LA Streetsblog? Post suggestions in the comments section, and we’ll announce a winner with LA Streetsblog launches soon.

(Editor’s note: I don’t know what kind of bug is going around right now, but I know that I have it. This may end up being my only post for the day, but fear not, we should be back at full strength tomorrow.)

    Having someone cover this region the way streetsblog appear to be covering NY is a godsend.

    Whatever the tagline, I am sure you will quickly become a locus of change in L.A.

    LA Streetsblog: Finally transportation planning an thinking for So. Cal like it’s 2008, not the 1950’s.

    last one of course too long – but I swear So.Cal seems like the least progressive in transportation planning and policies

    I like Fred’s both the at the street level and one street at a time.

    Super psyched for LA Streetblog – I’ve been reading the NYC one for a while and had been bummed we didn’t have a counterpart for LA – thanks for making it happen

  • this is similar to above… but my slant:

    “working the LA streets so you don’t have to”

    “cleaning the streets without the parking restrictions”

    “where our mind is always in the gutter”

    yada yada yada…
