Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Monday
In the LA Times, Mayor Villaraigosa is detailing his vision for LA as a dense, urban metropolis that will build up and not out. Writer/professor Joel Kotkin disagrees.
William Cowsill, lead singer of the sixties pop singing group that was the inspiration for the Partridge Family, has died at the age of 58, of emphysema and other ailments. The Cowsills had a few hits in the 60s and early 70s such as "The Park," "The Rain and Other Things" as well as a cover of the theme song from the musical, "Hair." Various members of the band lived at different times in the San Fernando Valley and their brother Richard, who was not a member of the band, served as the Student Body President of Los Angeles Valley College at one point in the 70s. Another band member, Barry, was lost and eventually his body was recovered following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. The band was slated to play The Partridge Family on the television show, but bowed out when network execs insisted Shirley Jones play their mother instead of their real-life mom.
