Seems like a simple enough question. Seems like a pretty basic one. Like one the new owners would want to answer, what with the fans having just been dragged through an ownership nightmare. Alas, at their morning press conference Wednesday it wasn't happening. Guggenheim Baseball Management is the new owner of the Dodgers. After that, it's fill in the blanks. As if you could. At least for now. Six individuals were introduced at the press conference, but exactly who owns how much of the team was left unanswered.

"Squeeze" is the perfect title for Robert Patton-Spruill's sensitive and comprehensive depiction of the world of three teenage boys from some of Boston's meaner streets, where the pressures on them to enter a life of crime become increasingly intense. "Squeeze" grew out of Patton-Spruill's experiences in conducting acting workshops at the Dorchester Youth Collaborative, an anti-violence media arts organization in the old suburban Boston neighborhood in which virtually the entire film was shot.

Just one more thing to add to the eternal divide between Dodgers and Angels fans: Angels owner Arte Moreno has contributed money to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, while the Dodgers ownership group has contributed to Barack Obama. The website WNYC.org has put together a great map that shows to whom and how much money sports team owners around the country have contributed. From the Dodgers, Magic Johnson, Todd Boehly, Robert Patton and Mark Walter have each contributed $5,000 to Obama.

She should know. The 48-year-old nursing supervisor says she has lost eight pets in the past decade to the predators that wander up to her northern San Diego County home from the coastal lagoon and wildlife preserve next door.
