Joe Holley gets Pulitzer after leaving San DiegoEven if a shared late-in-life Pulitzer is involved, some trips down memory lane are not worth taking, especially when they highlight/glorify/graphically describe pre-MeToo sexual harassment of a local woman writer by a jerk who skated off to Texas.monaghan

Netflix down, Union-Tribune up?The old LA Times printing plant could still turn into studio space, regardless of Netflix's crash. Content is king, and it's not slowing down.

Spielberg's West Side Story makes so many errorsI am waiting for it to come to Amazon Prime Video. ;-) I did have something to add; that's why I wrote it.

Spielberg's West Side Story makes so many errorsI haven't seen the new version yet. But I think your opinion is misguided. Screenwriter Tony Kushner (not Spielberg) is responsible for the storytelling. Yes, Spielberg hired Kushner, but it seems he had full faith in Kusher's new version of events and characters. There is NO rule that a remake must stay the same. Ben-Hur ...David Batterson
