Featured Headline: A woman admitted to negligent driving yesterday when she hit two women pushing strollers and their children in Santa Ana.  KTLA reports:”The driver says she simply did not see the pedestrians, who were crossing Civic Center Drive just west of Spurgeon Street; and she and hit four of the five.”  The driver admits that driver error was the cause of the crash, precluding other defenses.  Wait, this just in.  No charges have been filed.  It was just an accident.  This just in, the victims are still in the hospital.  Oh well, these things happen.

  • The Daily Trojan has referred to bikes as a ” problem”  for years. Its odd because the student staff obviously turns over every year.

    Wonder why they keep the same line?

    “These policies seem to be an indirect way of addressing the real problem: the number of bikes on campus.”

    Yes, in LA, the problem is too many bikes. uh huh.
