One of our LAist editors, Tom Berman, is taking a leave to work on a politics-related project (we totally support Tom in fighting the good fight, but apparently they won't let him blog about LA while he's supposed to be "working"), so we're looking for people interested in co-editing LAist and joining the estimable team out there of Adrienne Crew, Marleigh Riggins, and Phil Wallace. Email Jake.

And a little bit of Gothamist will be in L.A. next week...stay tuned!
