Thanks L.A. Weekly and I’ll See You Tuesday

1_15_10_la_weekly.jpg

A lot of you know I’m not one to toot my own horn; but you also know that when a blog wins an award such as L.A. Weekly’s “Top Local Activist Website” that it’s not just a reflection on me as the editor.  It’s a reflection on the work everyone does that writes a story, fills in for a day, writes a comment, or sends a story idea along.  So thanks everyone, we’re making a difference!

Also, Monday is traditionally an off-day for Streetsblog.  I’m going to spend the down time trying to get the calendar into shape for the rest of the year.  If there’s an event you want to make sure makes the calendar section, please drop me a line by filling out the form here: http://la.streetsblog.org/suggest-event/
