  • Vincent Bugliosi: Taking on Charles Manson

    Vincent Bugliosi has moved on, but the world hasn't. Forty years after the impossibly grisly Tate-LaBianca murders, he is still "the Manson prosecutor." This, in spite of his many books since, arguing with magisterial fury about the JFK assassination, the...

    Democrats would do right to do right by Abel Maldonado
    Within a few weeks, the embattled and belittled California Legislature will take one of two actions: * Approve state Sen. Abel Maldonado's nomination by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to be lieutenant governor because that's the smart and right thing to do....
  • Too many voters rely on party labels

    One good thing about mid-term elections is that they give voters a chance to learn about new candidates without the distraction of the wild presidential race. One excellent potential elected official emerged from this season, and she is worth watching in...
