LAT Editorial Assignments

We got our grubby little hands on this LAT memo from Russ Stanton:

Subject: Editorial Appointments

Bruce Wallace, Foreign Editor

Bruce Wallace, our Tokyo bureau chief since 2004, will become our new Foreign Editor, effective immediately.

Bruce was based in Japan, but during the last four years he has been a kinetic firefighter, parachuting from hotspot to hotspot. He made two lengthy trips to Iraq, embedding with Marines and a British Army unit. He has reported from Afghanistan, including Kandahar in the violent south. In 2006, he joined our coverage of the Israeli-Hezbollah war in Lebanon. In Asia, he reported from India, Pakistan and North Korea.

His dispatches are astutely crafted — and memorable. Consider his piece, written two days after the Asian tsunami, about the determination and grief of an American father looking for the body of his lost daughter in the muck and wreckage that had been a beach resort in Thailand. It began this way: ” If he can just follow the trail of Kali’s belongings, if he can keep uncovering more of those shoes with the pointed toes she loves so much and the ‘Abercrombie and Fitch everything’ that seem to make up her whole wardrobe, Stu Breisch believes, the sodden clues will lead to his missing 15-year-old daughter.” You can read the entire story here .

LAT In 90 Seconds

40058221-16150820.jpgMo’bit: A quick blog post yesterday told LAT readers about Stan Winston‘s demise, giving the paper more time to complete a longer, more thoughtful obituary for the legendary special effects wizard filled with deeper insights and information — like quotes from the Orange County Register.

40060171-16161318.jpgCalifornia Adventure? According to Dawn Chmielewski, “Walt Disney Imagineering melded the interactive elements of a video game with the kind of immersive 3-D experience of an amusement park to create Toy Story Midway Mania, a ride opening today at Disney’s California Adventure park in Anaheim.” We can see it now, frazzled parents screaming at their kids to put down their damn Game Boys so they can, um, play a video game.

40050784-16114244-200118.jpgGay-A-Palooza: The first gay marriages in the state inspire SWAT-team like coverage, with Tony Perry And Tami Abdollah covering a Marine’s wedding in San Diego, Carla Hall reporting from Beverly Hills, John Glionna filing from San Francisco, Bruce Wallace reporting from Tokyo, Duke Helfand, Jessica Garrison, Jean-Paul Renaud, Rich Connell, Sandy Banks, Dana Parsons reporting from L..A and Orange County. (Former LAT reporter Jean Pasco even got into the act, being quoted as the current Orange County recorder spokeswoman.)
