LAT Editorial Page Update

LAT EDITORIAL PAGE UPDATE….I realize that most of my readers don’t really care one way or the other about the quality of the LA Times editorial page, so I promise not to make this a daily feature. Still, it gets shoved into my face every morning, which affects my mental health, which in turn affects this blog, which in turn means everyone reading this blog should care about the quality of the LA Times editorial page at least a little bit.

Right. At any rate, it’s hard to know how to describe this effort that took up half the op-ed page today, so I won’t bother. But I will say this: there’s a difference between offbeat reverie and juvenile drivel dressed up as offbeat reverie. It may be a thin line sometimes, but the line does exist.
