LAT In 90 Seconds

33634573.jpgMaybe It’s the Smocks: Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested in downtown Chicago for refusing to leave a Walgreens. Seriously? Forgive the self-reference, but we can’t get out of those things fast enough.

33635265.jpgNot Ready For Prime Time: Columnist Scott Collins says he doesn’t like watching made-for-the-Internet content — at least not more than he likes TV. And doesn’t imagine too many other people do, either. He’s doesn’t spend nearly enough time in college dorm rooms.

33636047.jpgBlogging The Strike: The LAT is putting the same blogging effort into the WGA strike that it lent the recent fires. (Which, if you think about it, is kinda sick.) If it doesn’t break the writers’ contracts, the LAT should have strikers live blog the thing themselves. At least that would begin to justify all the attention.
