Cooper Says Countrywide, Not B of A, Is the True Villain


Reporting this morning on the largest one-bank government-assessed penalty in history, USA Today, in its page one news story, wrung its hands exasperatedly because no single man or woman emerged as a villain to assuage the public’s alleged need to quench its thirst for revenge. And, suggested the newspaper, baldly, B of A seems to be getting away with taxation murder. City Councilman Jeff Cooper, a banker, responded to the penalty assessed for selling toxic mortgage securities during the runup to the mid-decade

Has Another Water Boarder Scalded Himself with Hot Water


Whittier Daily News. Dateline Commerce -- Security videos obtained by this news organization show Central Basin Municipal Water District Director Art Chacon behind the wheel of a Mercedes he drove on Water District property earlier this month. Mr. Chacon, who hasn’t had a driver’s license since 2003, recently was censured by the board. He has come under fire for receiving a $597 monthly car allowance — even though he can’t legally

A New Day for Police Union and City Hall


You do not have to be psychic to fearlessly predict the outcome of the most curious item on Monday evening’s City Council agenda. In contrast to the Ferguson, Chicago, Oakland and Staten Island communities where cops are on defense, quiescent Culver City presents a lovefest. At the 7 o’clock meeting in Council Chambers, City Hall’s recently completed – and apparently record – five-year agreement with the 95-member Police Officers Assn. will be

L.A. Jews for Peace Take Their March to Port of Long Beach


After weekends of demonstrating against Israel’s role in the recent – current? – war with the terrorist group Hamas, Jeff Warner and his L.A. Jews for Peace members will march at a more distant venue. On Saturday morning at 6, Mr. Warner said demonstrators will be at the Port of Long

Connected Better


When I was about to return to my popup card hobby this week after a three-month hiatus, I spied my old glue gun. I hesitated to pick it up. Then I smiled. I knew that the glue gun had seen its last job. I reached for sheets of my mini glue dots. What can the glue dots do that the glue gun cannot do?read

In This War, What Is Significant About the Number Six


Dateline Jerusalem -- Normal routine as I awaken this morning to the buzzing of the Code Red Siren alert system on my computer at 6:15. Who needs an alarm? The number six must be of significance because there is a barrage of rockets around 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. most days. Once at 6 a.m., Hamas threatened to shoot at the airport in Tel Aviv yesterday, but failed to do

Making Separate Judgments on Two Kinds of Police Shootings


Dateline Dayton -- With a shooting here similar to the one in Ferguson, I am thankful we have not experienced any of their unrest and violence True, the man here had a rifle, an air rifle. Because he had a weapon, possibly folks here feel, to a degree, police were justified in taking down the young man. I am not for shoot-to-kill. I believe police must use caution. Based on what I have read, I support the police in this case. In Ferguson, too many versions of events have been told. I must

How Can Brown and Democrats Keep Green Tesla Here


And so California government now walks a tightrope, put in that position by one of the latest in the large corps of successful high-tech startups this state has spawned over the last few decades. Make a misstep in one direction and the state stands to lose a huge battery plant and 6,500 jobs. Stumble the other way and the state’s most important environmental law could be discredited, tainted by

What Slowdown? Hamas Must Be Setting a Record for Rockets


Dateline Jerusalem – At 3 a.m., I heard the drone of jets above me. I could barely keep my eyes open. Since the new policy of no Code Red Siren alerts unless rockets will fall in populated areas, the number of alarms is fewer but the number of rockets reaching Israel has not diminished. As of this moment, 11 siren alerts have been made. That seems a lot considering it covers only a period since midnight. How many siren alerts would there have been under the old policy of including the sounding of sirens in open
