Drawing a Line

Getting into a debate over the boundaries of a Los Angeles neighborhood is starting a conversation that might not ever end. Over at KCET, Nathan Masters doesn't argue, but rather looks back at Downtown's historically fluid borders, beginning with the first uses of the term to refer to businesses in the circa-1870s commercial center. Though almost everyone would agree that modern-day Downtown covers a lot more than that today, that doesn't make it any easier to define. [KCET]
