Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Thursday
The Canadian transplants at We's In California are marveling at all the different types of food stores one finds in Los Angeles.

The Daily News reminds us that downtown developer Eli Broad promised no public funds for his grand scheme for Grand Avenue. Now, he hints at a figure of at least $440 million in public funds to develop a hotel and other properties. Not one hotel chain and not one major retailer has committed to taking space in the project - which should be a sign that the project doesn't make sense. When the city can't afford the police officers it needs nor pave the streets, its hardly time for giveaways for millionaire fat cats.
