Hence, it's a go.
FIELD NOTE II: Since I had a full morning to sit in chambers and think, any transparency about blogging/reporting on cultural policy means being honest that it's also an attempt to influence policy. Or at least make it lucid, as I try do in Los Angeles. Is it Immersion Journalism? It may be, which is ironic since my comments to the board included how "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" is the lazy prompt some journalists and writers use as a narrative for this city. When I start writing essays here, I may steer away from them coming out as a form of Gonzo Arts Journalism. Or, I can just let the hallucinations take hold.
