"The children" have emerged victorious in the war being waged on them by USC as the university and two Exposition Park museums have agreed to rework the parking agreement that got everyone so exercised earlier this week. Under terms negotiated more than a year ago, USC agreed to run (and keep all the revenue from) the LA Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena in exchange for 70 percent of the California Science Center and African American Museum's parking on 25 special event days a year. Museum supporters called the deal "a war being waged on children," because of the impact the deal would have on the institutions, and also hyperbole. A CSC vote on the deal was expected this week, but, says the LA Times, that vote has been postponed until June 25 while the two sides come to new parking terms.
