The Los Angeles Times
on Monday resumed publication of its Washington edition, which it dropped last summer in a cost-cutting move. "We received numerous requests to restart the Washington edition from senior government officials and others who depended on it for the Times
' coverage of California, as well as for national and foreign news," said Publisher Robert T. Schlosberg III. About 3,000 copies of the 24-page version will be circulated in Washington, and 500 copies in New York City. Washington-based National Journal
, also owned by Times Mirror, is coordinating advertising sales and marketing.
