  • 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...

    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...
  • Drawing the map of California's heart

    If Sacramento lawmakers accomplish nothing else this year, they will make their tenure in the state Capitol worthwhile if they simply, finally, once and for all pass a program to institute redistricting reform. Redistricting is a crucial— No, wait!...
  • A homeless breakthrough?

    The most vulnerable person living on the streets of skid row is a 65-year-old veteran who has been homeless for 37 years. He has kidney and liver disease, has been to hospital emergency rooms four times in the last three months and has been arrested...
  • Return of the Westside lefty

    Bill Rosendahl wants U.S. troops out of Iraq. No surprise there; in this overwhelmingly Democratic city, opposition to Bush administration policy of any kind is almost a given, and there's not much political risk to a Los Angeles city councilman in...
