    Says he believes in local ownership of the paper but has been rebuffed:

    Whereupon angry staffers can evoke the outstanding song "Bring Me The Head of David Geffen," by Mojo Nixon.

    Life at the Times under Tribune hasn't been great -- but if a group of local businessmen including Geffen get ahold of it, I'd be very worried about what kind of meddling there might be if I worked there.

    Hmmmmm Geffen buying the LA Times, makes me think Santa Barbara deja vu. Although, I'm not sure Geffen could make the paper have a more liberal slant to it!
