LA Observed has recruited a dozen or so would be bloggers (is Sherry Bebitch Jeffee blogging?) to create a multi-plex of blogs (LA) observing a number of topics.
Martni Republic held a contest, offering a martini to the first reader to (LA) observe the new blog(s). Andrew at Here in Van Nuys shed crocodile tears at not being invited to join the new crew. I hear ya Andrew. This old, dead Republican Mayor was actually dumb enough to turn down the offer (with a signing bonus too!) to join Pajamas Media. Boy we were fools!
