Struggling with losses and sorely in need of capital, the Los Angeles and San Diego Business Journals are being sold by parent American City Business Journals to a Kansas City, Mo.-based investor group that will pump "several million dollars" into the weekly business publications over the next two years, ACBJ said Thursday. But the company, which is also based in Kansas City, said the sale agreement would be voided if it can find a buyer by Jan. 31 for all 36 of its weekly newspapers.

I think I've discovered my San Diego hero: Walter Gifford Smith. Smith, a ruddy-faced New Yorker who "resembled more the neighborhood butcher than a fire-eating editor," was editor of the San Diego Sun in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Talk about journalism with a point of view! It was an era when newspapers packed a wallop and sometimes provoked a counter-punch. One day the targets of some of Smith's waspishness went to the Sun office, across from Horton Plaza, and threw Smith out a window.

E. Joseph Cossman, who made millions marketing such must-have items as shrunken heads, spud guns and the now-ubiquitous ant farm, and then made millions telling entrepreneurs how to do the same thing, has died. He was 84. Cossman, a door-to-door salesman who perfected mail-order salesmanship and pioneered the television infomercial, then wrote books and conducted pricey seminars to demonstrate the route from rags to riches, died Dec. 7 in Palm Springs.
