L.A. Times sounds desperate
As this is a real blog a-borning, not a spam one (I did not know such existed until Google flagged this as suspect.) The Book Review has been axed, the paper's reading my mind as it sends me a come-on renewal at a cheaper price locked in if I subscribe to pay on-line. It's hard. I've been a longtime suitor, an ardent swain, but I'm tempted by the Old Grey Lady's charms, her erudition, her pages spread open for book to drool over, and her considerable pedigree. New York, again, tramples L.A. flat.
