Sandy Banks Returns as LA Times Columnist

The LA Times announces that Sandy Banks will return as a columnist. Twice a week.

Are the Times editors incapable of looking outside the building? Are there really no fresh, interesting, writers in all of Los Angeles, other than those folks already on the payroll?

Here’s some hints:

Susannah Breslin

Amy Alkon

Mayrav Saar (wanna make something of it?)

Sharon Mizota

Jasmyne Cannick

The press release says

Sandy has an innate ability to relate to many of the stories she writes about given her own background as a single mother raising three daughters.

Never mind how she actually writes.
