Infographic of the Day: According to ProPublica, which is tracking opposition to and support for SOPA and PIPA among members of Congress, yesterday’s blackout managed to persuade many politicians to come out against the Internet killing bills.
As hope-affirming as that is, it’s important to note that support for PIPA remains strong in the Senate, where those in favor of the bill outnumber those opposed by almost 2 to 1.
As mentioned yesterday, another interesting oft-ignored fact is that there is far more support for both bills among Democrats than Republicans. In the Senate, over two-thirds of all supporters are Democrats.
The blackout made a difference, but PIPA could still pass, and a procedural test vote is expected next week. Appreciate the accomplishment, but don’t mistake regrouping for retreat.
Take action.

I believe in luck, but this makes a ton of sense.

Better Than Chick-Fil-A: 5 Fried Chicken Sandwiches
It was a sight last September: People camped out along the sidewalk on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Highland Avenue on a chilly morning, many playing board games while snuggled in sleeping bags, all in the name of fried chicken. Yes, Chick-fil-A, the Southern fast-food chain known for its pickle-topped chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, opened its new Hollywood location, promising free sandwiches for a year to the first 100 customers. The place was packed from the get go, and the lines haven’t stopped since.
But not everyone is a devoted fan. Controversy over whether the company funds anti-gay organizations has some chicken lovers in a moral battle between heart, mind and palate. We’re here to help. If you just can’t stomach the chicken chain, we’ve found five fried chicken sandwich alternatives — even better than Chick-fil-A — to try around L.A.
See more here!

I can&#8217;t even&#8230; oh my gosh&#8230;

Clouds grounded: Andrea Kreuzhage woke up and walked out to the terrace of her home in Baldwin Hills to find this beautiful scene: “Clouds on the ground, lit from underneath, the tall palm trees courageously marching into the fog, the sounds of the basin muffled, and all the way across the sparking lights,” said Kreuzhage.
Our SoCal Moments project is continuing into 2012! Join us on Facebook and submit your photos.

Those who say LA is ugly are simply refusing to see it.
Wow. And I was just there 5 days ago &lt;3

The vertiginous “infinity pool” at the Marina Bay Sands resort offers a sweeping view of Singapore, a country that’s achieved success while building up instead of out.
