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 prehttp://www2.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifsumably 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.
