  • California's foster-care paradox

    Let's blame it on Google. If the search engine monolith weren't so dizzyingly successful, its stock wouldn't have been worth billions of dollars to the 16 company founders and insiders in 2006 who decided to partially cash out. That stock sale did more...
  • The two Henry T. Nicholases

    Last week began and ended on high notes, sort of, for the billionaire Orange County crusader behind some of California's most recent tough-on-crime ballot measures. On June 2, an anti-gang proposition that he is backing with $1 million from his personal...
  • Pols walk around without a plan

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is at his cocky best, grinning from a stage toward a Saturday crowd of maybe 4,000, declaring into a microphone that he's been challenged — by an unnamed member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors — to race this...
  • Whose blurb is it anyway?

    Newspaper editorials are a little like restaurant or movie reviews. No matter how well they're written, they are inherently preachy. Someone paid to express an opinion tells readers — who are perfectly capable of making up their own minds — what to do. Or...
  • Desire among the corpse flowers

    It's the sound that defines the change of season in Southern California. Low, rumbling, incessant, signaling the arrival of one wave after another of newcomers. Wagon wheels. Not the big wood ones, kicking up dust underneath Conestogas on the Old...
  • Lobbying isn't the problem, corruption is

    Let's say you want to build a housing project that caters to the needs of formerly homeless people who are trying to deal with mental illness and drug abuse. First off, thank you — projects like yours may be the best way to combat chronic homelessness and...
  • The children (and aunts, uncles and second cousins) of Prop. 13

    It must have seemed like 1978 all over again. Property taxes on Lorraine Steinhart's Sherman Oaks home were a manageable $1,105.79 in 2000, then nearly quintupled the next year to $5,492. Quite a jump for a 73-year-old retiree. Tax shocks like that are...
  • One person, one click

    What if they held an election and nobody came? We throw that question around a lot in California, because so often here we hold elections and almost nobody comes. The March 6 race showcased the abysmal trend. We were electing the leaders of the Los...
  • Big trouble in Little Hoover

    Send us your thoughts at opinionla@latimes.com. Some governmental chores are so sacred they can be entrusted only to people or institutions of intellectual rigor and unquestioned integrity. Or at least with the veneer of rigor and integrity. It's...
  • Slaughter of the innocence

    In November 1994, a Lodi man named Pete Rose — not the famous baseball player — was arrested for the kidnap and rape of a 13-year-old girl. Rose told a judge he didn't need a lawyer, since he wasn't guilty, but he nevertheless accepted San Joaquin County'...
  • Californias family budget

    The 14 state Senate Republicans who continue to filibuster over California's overdue budget have been called terrorists, Spartans and winners who don't know how to win. They are, in fact, members of a minority party who know how to use the rules of the...
