HEARTS IN THE RIGHT PLACE DEPARTMENT
Good luck to these people, for all the good it will do (although it did work for Al Martinez). Anyway, LAIst reports on this effort to get the LA Times to reinstate Lewis Segal and/or a full-time staffer for dance coverage.
The backers say:
We believe that Los Angelenos need a commitment from news organizations such as the L.A. Times to support the amazing, fast growing art forms of choreography and dance as seen on the screens and stages of Los Angeles. At a time when dance has never been more popular, we ask you to sign this petition to support the reinstatement and growth of dance staff and coverage at the L.A. Times.
