Eichler, Alan Hess, Orange, hanging tree, etc.

Just a quick reminder that Alan Hess will give a talk about Orange's Eichler tracts at tonight's meeting of the Orange County Historical Society. See my April 18 post for more information about the event. (For more information about Alan and his books, see his website.) I'm looking forward to this! Hope to see you there.
You may remember all the traffic on this blog last year about the hanging tree in Precitas Canyon. Well, the L.A. Times finally got around to putting their own spin on the story. Wish they'd spent more time explaining the background on Juan Flores and his gang, but you can't have everything.

Now, why would the LA Times want to waste time giving us the facts on Juan Flores and his gang? 'You can't have everything' is right when talking about the Times.
