Confession: I'm a bad citizen

I didn't vote on Tuesday. But I wasn't the only one. Only about seven percent of registered voters participated, mostly by mail. This despite school board races where millions of dollars were raised (and pre spent). What happens when nobody votes? As City Beat put it, "the apathy-tainted results still stand".

Also in City Beat this week, a cover story on an alleged Mexican Mafia-directed murders of African Americans in Highland Park and Harbor Gateway and evictions in West LA.
