WIN FOR THE AREA: In L.A., Tim Rutten writes under the header, "One-Of-A-Kind NFL Stadium." Majestic Realty "intends to build the National Football League's first certified LEED stadium." Also, L.A. County has a "jobs crisis that is creating widespread misery," and the stadium project "will hire 12,000 construction workers and, when finished, employ more than 6,000 permanent workers -- all earning union wages with union benefits." Rutten: "In other words, this is a project that not only has complied with the letter and spirit of the Environmental Quality Act but promises a greener outcome than anything else on the table. And it directly addresses our area's most pressing social and economic need -- jobs" (L.A. TIMES, 10/21).
