I remember waiting last year for -30- column drafts to come in, and everyone would offer the same excuse: “It’s so hard, I don’t know what to write!”
Now I’m three days past deadline and the new Opinion editor is badgering me to finish spewing whatever sentimental bullshit I’ve accumulated over the past four years.
No Offense is back for another week with your favorites Chris Campbell, Keshav Tadimeti and Abhishek Shetty. This week, the guys discuss the possibility of implementing an esports scholarship at UCLA.
We can all agree Los Angeles needs better schools. Whether that means appending the word “charter” is a bit more contentious.
And contentious is the perfect word to describe Tuesday’s Los Angeles Board of Education election, especially when it comes to the Westside’s own contest between incumbent board President Steve Zimmer and challenger Nick Melvoin.
