A Farewell to Certain News Cycles

It’s a weird media week, particularly in Los Angeles. Lots of media-interest stories drawing to a close, or at least a transition this week. Hahn says ‘goodbye’; Villaraigosa says ‘hello.’ The urgent matter of the ‘War of the Worlds’ opening weekend take will be partially settled today. And over on the east coast, Cooper and Miller are due in court in about four minutes to find out if they’re going to prison. And nobody’s even talking about Michael Jackson anymore, although the new issue of Los Angeles does have a poignant-in-retrospect series of photos of his courthouse-watching fans.

We’ll miss each and every one of these media stories. What’s next? Stay tuned…
