Collapse of the Fourth Floor Blog: Aftermath
The LA Times even indirectly quoted Mayor Sam
Then came an item soliciting information on the intensely private mayor's personal life.
"I remember the days when having a mistress got you a free cocktail," mused one poster.
This was plucked from the Fourth Floor post speculating on rumors about Mayor Hahn's love life and a comment to a post by Mayor Sam.
LA Voice even mused on the passing in this great obit.
Along with Mayor Sam's blog, at least two other new blogs have popped up hoping to fill the void, but we're proud to say that we've come out of the gate with far more content and least a few more readers/commenters. You can check out LA City Hall or Fourth Floor Carnivore which has ceded serious reportage to the Sister City and LA Observed while laying its claim to the gossip that seemed to draw many to Fourth Floor. While we're honored to even be mentioned in the same breath as Kevin Roderick's blog - and while we do intend to present the important issues, we plan to have some fun and do invite your dirt of all kinds.
The Fourth Floor may be closed, but the toothpaste is out of the tube. Blogging could very well be set to transform Los Angeles.
