Chicago Meets LA

OK…this has nothing to do with travel in LA, but there is an LA hook… 

Spending the last 25 years in Chicago, I have developed a certain respect for Sam Zell.  The guy just knows how to make money in buckets, has stayed scandal-free, and…well…he looks as if it would be fun to spend time with him.  The motorcycles.  The jeans.  And, now he’s gone and bought the LA Times, and the rest of the Tribune Company.  Let’s ignore the other media assets and ponder the newspaper.  Except for the burdgeoning Real Estate section busting to contain the cascade of property for sale piling up around here, you could barely line a bird cage with the Chicago Tribune these days.  For international and national news and sports, they have conceded defeat – wisely, I think – to the Internet.   Is it the same in LA with the Times?  I read that only online.
