Tonight's Zócalo Public Square asks the burning-if-not-faintly-quaint question, “What Kind of Newspaper Does Los Angeles Deserve?” While L.A. has always been blessed with newspapers it truly needed – this very Weekly among them – at this point in our media-saturated fever dream, it's good to consider the newspaper as a worthy entity and not just the thing you get stuck reading when your phone needs charging. While Zócalo's “L.A.'s major newspapers dwindled down to one: the Los Angeles Times' premise conveniently ignores La Opinión, you'll hear a klatch of experts sounding off on how change in everything from technology to tildes has reshaped the landscape of news consumption. The experts include O.C. Register owner and publisher Aaron Kushner, who plans to publish an L.A. Register (maybe they can use some of those old Brand X kiosks), former L.A. city councilman Michael Woo and 35-year Times veteran Sandy Banks, who's seen it all when it comes to covering the warm heart of the city and beyond. Petersen Automotive Museum, 6060 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; Mon., March 10, 7:30 p.m.; free with RSVP, $8 parking. (323) 930-2277,
