This Week In LA Weekly
Check out Jill Stewart's piece, "Has Ray Cortines Got Cojones?" which is her take on the L.A Times education series. Stewart details the teachers union's long history of trying to suppress the data that formed the basis of the Times series -- data that purport to show which teachers are talented and helping their students, and which aren't.
And Gene Maddaus, who spent last week at the Dodger divorce trial between Frank McCourt and Jamie McCourt, offers a nuanced take, "A Matter of Impressions," on the life of the rich, who, in their insecurities and marital fights, can sometimes be just like the rest of us.
