This Week's Top Stories: Confirming the sky is blue (basically, that is what it confirmed) , a statistical analysis says Los Angeles has the nicest weather in all the land, closely followed by San Diego and Oxnard. The temporarily dormant eastside-westside debate erupted like Krakatoa this week, with the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council voting that Silver Lake is not a part of the eastside.

Curbed looks at the City of Torrance and the history of the "Modern Industrial City" with its residential areas planned by the Olmstead Brothers.
