"Cavanaugh realized that the intense heat of the transit that had so beleaguered mail service would actually work to his advantage in a burrito tunnel. The burritos could be stored frozen on the Western end and arrive fully heated through in New Jersey. Furthermore, advances in electrical engineering meant that containers would no longer have to be propelled by compressed gas. The burritos already came conveniently wrapped in aluminum foil - it would be trivial to accelerate them with powerful magnets.”

Hi. Who are you?
I’m part of the new politics team for the LA Register, focusing on tktktk.
What do you think you’re doing at City Hall?
Hopefully more than Rob Ford could manage yesterday.
Where are you from?
New Yawk, by way of Chicago.
What have you written?
I was integral in covering a big pig scandal in Seal Beach you might have heard of. Actually there’s a lot on ocregister.com. I especially enjoy long days on the ocean recovering fishing nets and talking shop with Harvey Levin.
What do you want to write about LA?
What are your hopes and dreams?
Getting sent to cover the World Cup, finding and exporting LA’s greatest taco, joining the Order of the Occult Hand. (Not necessarily in that order.)
I have more questions!
