Urban Slaughter Covered in LA Times

screamingtree.jpg

The LA Times runs two op-ed columns that are seemingly on the same subject–the mean streets of the city.

Tim Rutten on gang violence and City Hall inertia. Thoughtful, ponderous, not a quotable word. And an obvious point:

Often, both assailant and victim are gang members.

Sara Catania, who teaches journalism , writes about the carnage and slaughter in LA streets. No, she’s not writing about the same subject; she’s writing about tree trimming.

While she doesn’t actually use the word holocaust, we bet she wanted to.

She’s been writing about this since 2000. Yes, DWP tree trimmers often do a terrible job and like a bad haircut, the hack job will grow out. Unlike this one.

The DWP will also give you a tree here. Will Catania give us our time back?
