Everything you ever wanted to know about Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
Only in Los Angeles would its largest public facility be named after a would-be murderer — and worse yet, a former journalist.
I’ve wanted to take a weekend and explore the park, but I guess I’ll wait until 2005. I figure there isn’t much point in going now with the observatory closed.
One observation, however: This LAT article contains lots of facts, but isn’t particularly well written. It’s written, I note, by a freelancer, yet according to one LAT editor, the LAT doesn’t need writers. Go figure.
