People keep complaining that archived articles on the LA Weekly website are unreadable. This is true, no doubt because the website format has changed half a dozen times in the past couple years. Beyond that, I will not comment. Long pieces especially are absolutely impossible on there. So I'm going put PDFs of some of those pieces here instead. Eventually, I suppose, I should make a nifty site that has all my articles in one place. But in the meantime, here is my favorite LA Weekly story: The Gospel According to Rio.
