    Wanted: A mayor worthy of L.A.
    Since my knee replacement surgery less than two weeks ago, I've been popping narcotic painkillers that come with long lists of potential side effects. Among them are vomiting, hallucinating and impaired thinking. It is perhaps that third one that made...

    Plano capitalizes on 'Man of Steel' with Superman-themed festival
