Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: I’m sorry I missed the Times’ Bill Plaschke horrifically bad opinion piece calling for a smaller Dodger Stadium so all the important people who drive there don’t have to wait in traffic with peons yesterday. Plaschke is known nationally as an unbelievably bad journalist and writer in sports circles, so I’m sorry I missed my “Fire Joe Morgan” moment. Steve Hymon beat me to it, in a pretty snarky read for The Source. Bravo, Steve.
