Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Say what you want about The Source, they were at their best yesterday when they published Metro’s recent crime statistics with a short analysis by Steve Hymon.  The stats show that L.A.’s transit system is relatively safe, although, as Curbed notes, not the safest in the country.
Featured Headline 2: Apparently the Metro Board is going to debate the certification of the Crenshaw Subway later this morning.  I should get my eyes checked.
