  • Go ahead, throw away your vote!

    You have a week to gear up. Next Monday, March 5, get to bed on time. Get a good night's sleep. Wake up early in the morning, do some jumping jacks, eat a good breakfast, put on comfortable shoes. Then get right to it. Grab your sample ballot, go to the...
  • End of an epic ethic epoch

    The May 2, 2007 Los Angeles Times headline reads, "L.A. Mayor accused of ethics lapses." The words immediately shape a mental image of Antonio Villaraigosa lurking in a darkened room and issuing Nixonian orders to shadowy henchmen. Did he hiss...

  • California's propositions

    Proposition 1A What it does: Authorizes $9.95 billion in bonds to build an electric train to get people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just over 2 1/2 hours. Back story: This is the governor's and the Legislature's baby, years in the making....
  • Measure by measure

    Measure A What it does: Imposes a $36-a-year tax on each parcel of property in the city to raise money for youth and anti-gang programs. Requires two-thirds vote. Back story: Every property in the city, whether it's a lot with a 20,000-square-foot...
  • If L.A. County Supervisor Yvonne Burke would rather live in a tonier district, fine -- she's free to relinquish her seat

    Pity our hapless elected officials, who are simply trying to live their lives, take their pay and shuttle among their multiple houses. Now they have reporters stalking them, confronting them with their inconsistencies and trying to find out if they are...
