Hot off the presses! How the Skid Row Neighborhood Council was Defeated by Jason McGahan published mere hours ago in the L.A. Weekly. Tells the same sad story you’ve been reading here, there, and everywhere, but with an actual discussion of the reprehensible involvement of Scott Gray, Capital Foresight, Liner Law, Rocky Delgadillo, and the rest of the zillionaire Klown Kar Krew.1 It’s a rare experience for me to read an article in a newspaper where I understand the subject thoroughly and not see any errors at all.2 This is a fine piece of work. Read it!
This story is in no way about us, but we’re thrilled to have been able to help.
And a nice H/T from Jason McGahan, to boot:
Emails to and from the Business Improvement Districts of the Historic Core and Fashion District that were recently obtained via the California Public Records Act and published at the blog MichaelKohlHaas.org (the blog shares the name of a 19th Century German novella about a fanatical quest for justice) provide insight to the opposition campaign that led to the narrow defeat of the Skid Row Neighborhood Council.
L.A. Weekly logo started out as the L.A. Weekly logo and ended up as … the L.A. Weekly logo. Not sure if it’s the kind of thing that’s subject to copyright, but even if it is they’ve obviously still got it and we’re just fair-using it, friends.
- And also with more journalistic skill and integrity than we could ever muster, not that we want to.
- I’m not alone in this. C.f. the Gell-Mann effect.
