Keeping Up With the Times

KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES….Friday night, when the Rockies and Diamondbacks went into extra innings, the LA Times didn’t have the final score in the next day’s paper. Odd, I thought, since that game ended a little after 11:30. The Times gets put to bed before midnight these days?

Today it’s worse: the Sunday paper doesn’t have the final score of the Sox-Indians game, which ended at 10:37 pm Pacific time. Apparently the sports section had to hit the presses at 10:02 pm.

10:02? Seriously? Is that really the sports section deadline these days in Los Angeles? Is this a joke?
