Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Every year the state releases it's list of top 25 tax scofflaws.  LAist then broke the list down further, to 14 businesses in the Greater Los Angeles area.  Of those 14 businesses, six of them are car related be they dealerships or garages.

Featured Headline: Breaking News, the California High Speed Rail project is supposed to run at high speeds.  This is the "duh" premise of a story that appeared in yesterday's Los Angeles Times.  The California High Speed Rail blog decimates the story, but regardless of how you feel about High Speed Rail, there's no denying the Times story is silly.  Honestly, really embarrassing guys.
