Earning a Living Lying on Their Backs, Journalistically

Editor's Essays

It may as well be the year 1665 for the blind, ignorant, mean-spirited manner that the Hamas-Israeli war is being covered by American newspapers – and television has been as useless as an engagement ring for a lifetime celibate. The Civil War – millennials should be informed this was before television or radio – was covered with far more precision, immensely less prejudice. From the July day the Hamas terrorists provoked Israel into war, left-wing journalists have not been this excited about doing damage since they got a weightless black man with no adult qualifications elected President of the United

Stouvenel Offers Accessible Solution to Blind Riding Busses


The ardent No. 1 critic of Culver City’s slightly controversial blind-ride-free bus policy said this morning that he has a panacea that would end the present two-month dispute: “Every blind person now riding the Culver CityBus system,” said James Stouvenel of Palmdale, “should switch to Access Services, where they, and everyone else, can ride for free on Access’s Fixed Route

McKenna Pleads for Opponent to ‘Stop Smearing Me’


As some readers probably have heard, my opponent (for the First District seat on the School Board) is engaging in a dirty smear campaign against me. (Full coverage in Thursday's LA Sentinel).

For people familiar with the history of the runup to World War II, there is a sense of déjà vu in today’s humanitarian crisis along the Mexican border as resistance rises against the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children attempting to enter and stay in the United States. Eyewitness reports indicate that half the children coming without parents are actual refugees fleeing

The Pearson Middle School Legacy – Parent Involvement


Fifth in a series. Jon Pearson is one of those unusual school administrators whose legacy – now that he is gone – will be at least as much parent-centric as student oriented. Oh, he was popular enough with students, and that is not such an unusual trait. But from his first week, Mr. Pearson sensitively, electrically connected with moms and

Second Straight Week -- Soulvine Unchained


[Editor’s Note: The newspaper is indebted to C.J. Fowler and John Walsh, for the second week in a row, for forwarding Betty Pleasant’s popular “Soulvine” column, rejected for the second straight week by her home base, Wave Newspapers. Says Mr. Walsh: If Ms. Pleasant had white skin, this outrage would warrant coverage in the Los Angeles Times - Editor-in-Chief Mr. Davan Maharaj's violation of journalistic ethics and standards.”]read
