The war is not over. But this time, the expression "newspaper war" is taking on a different color. The battle once reserved for dailies duking it out for space at the breakfast table has moved to the alternative press. And the recent arrival of New Times, the scrappy, irreverent, Phoenix-based chain, is sending tremors across L.A.'s landscape of weekly newspapers. Ground zero was the decade-old Los Angeles View, an eccentric tabloid that specialized in politics and culture.

Want to be an expert on the Owens Valley-Los Angeles water controversy, the one that was in the news this week when a deal was struck to abate valley dust storms that resulted from the city's water policies? It's simple. Just rent the 1974 film "Chinatown" and take some notes. Or at least that's what more than a few people have told me when they learned I had written a book about the controversy.

"They were making such a fuss about returning for the election," recalled Sossa, 39, who said she felt put off by the loud revelers. "I kept thinking, 'What's the big deal?'

When mobster Mickey Cohen ruled Los Angeles in the late 1940s, his favorite hangout was the legendary Slapsy Maxie's nightclub on Wilshire Boulevard. It's long gone now of course, so to re-create it for the new film "Gangster Squad" the filmmakers had to be creative. Production designer Maher Ahmad found the right spot for Slapsy Maxie's almost by accident, while driving around with the film's first location manager. They had been looking for a vintage house in a suburban neighborhood when they passed an Art Deco-inspired block of empty businesses in Bellflower.

It has come to this. The Holocaust, an event horrific enough to beggar imagination, has become a tourist attraction. A big-time tourist attraction. According to James E. Young, author of "The Texture of Memory: Holocaust Memorials and Meaning," more than 100 museums worldwide focus on the event (not to mention the existence of literally thousands of monuments and memorials) and newspapers report that Holocaust museum-less cities such as Berlin are publicly pressing to join the club.
