LAT In 90 Seconds

34137asdfsd355-24101751.jpgRegrets: Norah Vincent writes a moving account of her regret over not voting this year. Most impressive part of her Op-Ed? She uses the word “doctrinaire” twice. TWICE, people!

obama_2.jpgConspicuous Consumption: Just in time for the ailing economy, the LAT launches a new blog, To Live and Buy in L.A. Good thing, too. Otherwise we’d have no idea where to get an Obama T-shirt for our dog. (Seriously people? Everyone’s 401(k) is running on fumes and you’re selling us ironic dog T-shirts?)

agudfasfilera.jpgOne Note Wonder: The LAT blog post about Christina Aguilera’s fave restaurants can’t be more than 300 words long, but that’s long enough, apparently, for Aguilera to run out of words. To wit: “I’m a chef groupie. I met Tom Colicchio recently and was starstruck.” and “I’m a chef groupie. If I met Mario Batali I’d be starstruck.”
