I was surprised--astounded really--at David Shaw's reference to the Los Angeles Business Journal in his account of the Staples Center controversy ("Crossing the Line," Dec. 20). How he came to the conclusion that "few Times reporters or editors read the Los Angeles Business Journal, and those who do don't pay any attention to it" is beyond me. His research apparently missed the fact that The Times and Times Mirror currently have 57 separate subscriptions to our newspaper--more than double the number from four years ago--and given the "pass-along" factor for a publication like ours, it is no doubt routinely read by many more than that number.

How about some consideration for the West Coast when scheduling these things? Forgive the typos. I'm groggy. Today's report includes the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences taking away an Oscar nomination, and Gail Berman ending her production partnership with Lloyd Braun. Also, industry big shots remember movie executive Tom Sherak, who died earlier this week.

Dan Turner, a Times editorial writer for nearly a decade who was known for his sharply witty observations on a broad range of subjects, died Saturday at his Los Angeles home. He was 49. The cause was pancreatic cancer, which was diagnosed two years ago, said his wife, Jocelyn. "No matter what the subject - and no matter how nerdy - he approached it with the same extraordinary voice and sense of humor," Nicholas Goldberg, editor of The Times' editorial pages, said in an e-mail to the staff announcing Turner's death.
