TBS Today, March 6

Sending today's email from 37,000 feet, on my way to Baltimore for the data journalism conference I mentioned last week.

Coverage may be light until I'm back next Wednesday, but I'll certainly keep you posted about what I do publish. Several things are in the works (as always).

Hot off the presses: A group of Cal parents concerned about safety around campus has hired its own security ambassadors — and they started tonight.

The safety ambassadors will be easily identifiable by their bright-colored jackets that sport the words “security” and “SafeBears.”

Also, if you're a District 7 voter (Southside), make sure to mark your calendar for March 20 when the local League of Women Voters is holding a candidate forum.

District 7 tends to be a very low-turnout district so it will be interesting to see how the candidates get out the vote.
