A copy of yesterday’s Los Angeles Times. The layout, spiralling clockwise from top:
1. Sikh women dealing with eyebrow hair (the rest of this front-page article occupies the entire ad-free section of the back page).
2. Photo of police fighting demonstrators… in Egypt.
3. Expansion of Medicaid program in California.
4. The decision of paediatric mental health professionals to rename “prone to tantrums” as “disruptive mood dysregulation disorder”.
5. North Koreans’ targetted killings of South Korean human rights activists (which mostly entails smuggling people out of North Korea).
6. Article to go with the Egypt photo above.
No mention of Occupy Wall Street until page 8, where a half-column on the top left deals mostly with Herman Cain’s opposition to the protests. No idea why such an important story is on blackout - usually the Los Angeles Times is a perfectly reasonable paper. Steve Lopez promises more on the local angle tomorrow in his opinion column, which isn’t really news, but I guess that’s something.
