A letter from a city councilmember running for mayor of LA to an anonymous blogger (4th Floor Blog) has convinced her to shut down her blog (via Martini Republic and LA Observed).
Here’s part of the letter:

I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your comments, no matter how misguided and totally out of focus they were. And, I appreciate your attempt to provide information. But, make no mistake, I will not tolerate any more cheap shots. And, I hope our next correspondence will be made in person… if you’re brave enough.
