Remember the fracas over a Laguna Beach artist named Wyland? He was unhappy because the state commissioned his whale tail artwork for license plates but wouldn't give him a cut of the funds for his environmental foundation.

Well, today The Times' editorial board weighs in, saying that the state should hold a competition among California's art students for a new ocean plate, with a $10,000 scholarship for the winner

And this time, the editorial board opines, "make sure the kid signs a written agreement."
