The LA Influence




While reading Marcy Burstiner's "Subscribe 'til It Hurts," I noticed what I consider an error in the article ("Media Maven," March 5). She used the phrase/term "The 101" -- referring, of course, to our north-south highway.

Now, I don't know how this came to be, or why it is an error, but I do know that it is. I suppose it could be argued that she was using "the" in a specific correct way, but that doesn't change that it sounded wrong.

I hope Burstiner's otherwise quite well written piece does not bring about a change to the way we refer to our major roadway.
