Your favorite infernal rag, of course, gets called a lot of things, few of which are positive--and that's how we like it! We'd prefer people become a bit more inventive than saying they use us as birdcage liner--how about insulation? Or mulch? Those "alternative medicine" adds give tomatoes a much-needed boost!

Every once in a while, however, someone suffers a brain lapse and says nice things about us. So imagine our surprise when the Gray Lady herself, the New York Times, called us a "lively journal."

OH SNAP!!!

Tho occasion was a nice writeup on yours truly in support of my Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America. Reporter Julia Moskin covered much of my research efforts and, of course, had to discuss the paper where I work at, which she described as "a lively journal."

You know we're going to run THAT blurb for the next 20 years, when you'll be picking us up in hologram form...gracias, Times, for legitimizing us for about five seconds! Now, back to our porno-and-pot-and-pedo-priest programming...

Too bad she didn't see it before it was sold and the paper cut down the number of news articles published each week and trimmed two thirds of the content to make the paper the size it is today. Let her see an issue from the days when the paper went after (bitter, defeated ex-congressman) Bob Dornan for example, and she would have called you hyperactive at the very least, as usually there were three or four exposes going on at the same time each week. Remember when the Register got it news by reading the OCWeekly? Now, if it wasn't for Moxley and Coker, there'd be no investigating going on at all anymore and the local political weasels would be getting away scot free. If those two ever go on to publications worthy of their talents all that will be left is Gustavo's lame food review complaints about how gabacho restaurants in the county don't have food spicy enough (read: volcanic) for his taste.

It's like one hobo telling another hobo he has body odor.

"(Mr. Bayless declined to be interviewed for this article.)"

Best sentence in that whole write up.

If you think OCW has pruned back some, when did you last check out the LA Times? It hits the doormat these days with about the same thud as the latest flyer from the won't-take-no-for-an-answer Cox cable people.

What exactly is the 'westside' of OC? Or are you writing from Santa Monica?

Cox -- you gotta love the work ethic of a monopoly that still gives you the hard sell.

 Never claimed to represent the westside of all OC, just the westside of Costa Mesa. The way the city council is going there's enough to be active about right here.

West side of Santa Ana? I'm pretty sure I saw someone complaining about the spiciness of the salsa de aceite at El Cabrito.

Someday I'm going to check out this Santa Ana place--oil sauce on goat sounds tasty.
