Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: L.A. Weekly checks back in on the Westside Subway battle in Beverly Hills.  The second largest print publication in Los Angeles continues to carry water for Beverly Hills, basically taking all their arguments at face value and scorning any other arguments.  I’m not sure which part of the story is more odd, the class war-fare opening against Century City which seems to believe that many Beverly Hills opponents of the subway route are part of the middle class or the assertion that the Constellation Ave station location is “sleepy” and the Santa Monica Station is “bustling” despite having a golf course on half of the station border.
