My folks moved to Los Angeles right after WW2, and settled in the South Bay. Our local paper was the Daily Breeze, but my folks didn't like that so we had the Herald Examiner delivered every day. I think we were they only locals that subscribed to that paper....

Great piece, better late than never, but just as a good history of the paper's pretty interesting background.

its newsroom did not come close to representing the city's demographics

I'm glad that major papers are doing this, but I do wish they'd consider how to represent diverse *classes* while they're at it.  It's pretty much impossible to get a job at one of these papers without taking an internship that most people's families can't afford to support.

Whoa, whoa, there, let's not lose our heads. If we allow poor people into our corporate diversity programs, we're just asking for the communists to take over.
