    oprah, obama, obama, oprah 

    at the la times

    im not sure how much ive told you about the renovations that have been going on at the Times this spring,

    but they have been fixing up our 3rd floor newsroom, so we have had to relocate to other parts of the building.

    because andrew malcolm, the top of the ticket blogger, is so beloved he was assigned a sweet little office

    with this spectacular view of the abandoned city hall parking lot, which is now frequented

    by feral cats, stoned skateboarders, sleeping homeless chaps,

    and construction workers who are turning the empty space into a nice downtown park.

    but because andy shows up at the building about 10 times a year,

    and because the new desk i was assigned isnt really ergonomic, andy is allowing me to crash in his pod.

    other than the view, i like it for a few reasons, namely it allows me to focus on blogging for the Ticket, our political blog.

    needless to say yesterday’s news of President Obamas birth certificate kept me pretty busy

    and it was nice to be able to focus on that in a closed office with a pretty view

    of dudes doing crack cocaine in the sunshine.

    i <3 my life.
