Dutton's Brentwood Saved (For Now)

Good news for those of you readers who still read books. The LA City Council has voted in favor of declaring the Barry Building, site of Dutton's Bookstore, a Historic Cultural Monument. The owner of the building, local money tyrant (and possible Dickens' character) Mr. Charles Munger, had a change of heart and now says he is willing to work with the community, reports CBS2. The lovely building was found to be "an example of mid-20th century modern architecture in Southern California [that] has contributed to the social and cultural history of the San Vicente commercial area."
