    Isn’t it funny that although every press release from LA Metro asks editor (and the rest of us) to refer to the LACMTA as “LA Metro”, the Daily News continues to refer to LA Metro as the “MTA”.

    @Damien:

    Don’t know if you heard yet, but there was a 13-year-old girl killed in an apparent hit-and-run this morning:

    Very sad. The girl was a student at the school where my wife teaches. She didn’t have the girl as a direct student, but obviously the rest of the school is very distressed this morning.

  • I just watched the press conference on ABC 7. They referred to the crash as a “terrible accident” over and over again. Wouldn’t say if a crime had been committed. Wouldn’t even call it a “hit and run” because the drivers talked to the mother of the victim before driving off, even if they didn’t bother to give any contact information. Total letdown.

    Edit: We’ll do something once I can find a copy of the press conference. Hoping ABC 7 posts it.

  • Be careful not to get too interested in the Brentwood case. You’ll be labeled racists for not caring about other cases involving black children or poor people, even though they are covered here plenty.
