We Tour Downtown L.A. and the Los Angeles Times
||Here we are in the Times newsroom with Darrell Kunitomi. More
about that later.
As always, the Mass Comm 101 field trip to the Times began with a hearty
breakfast at Phillippe's, home of the French Dip Sandwich, a fixture in
Downtown Los Angeles since 1908 (I mistakenly wrote 1912 on an earlier
field trip page). Typically, only a few students answer the call for an
early breakfast Downtown, but it is good to sit down and talk with them
in a more informal setting than the classroom usually allows.
||We marvelled at the dime cups of coffee, discussed the news of the
day and what we'd see on the field trip ahead.
||As always, the turnout was a nice balance of good students ...
||... and geeky teachers.
||Darrell did a fine job of weaving the city's history and the Times'
history into one intertwined narrative.

||Besides, the Times' newsroom is simply a cool place to hang out. This
is MC101 student Nancy Yaldizian and her beau. It's always nice to have
guests on MC101 field trips.
After the Times tour, some of us went to see the sights Downtown
on our way to our afternoon field trip at the Los Angeles Central Library.
Come with us.
