    Patt Morrison Asks: Balloteer Kim Alexander
    The first California election that Kim Alexander cast a ballot in was a pip; voters decided 16 state propositions -- on creating a state lottery, capping welfare, limiting campaign contributions -- and gave their former governor, Ronald Reagan, a second...
  • Paul Greenberg: 1936, the sequel

    What an Oscar-winning production: No sooner had the Olympic torch been doused at Sochi than Russian troops, in uniform and out, began landing in Crimea. The script was as familiar as "Casablanca" as key points are seized, highways blocked, airports...

    Almost 60 years later, a fallen airman finally gets his due

  • Jeff Awards announce special honor for comic master

    Kevin Hunt: Will Headphones Work With Dish Network As Promised? No, And Now A $440 Cancel Fee
    Unlike the usual complaints about cable providers, Maurice Frye was not displeased with service, bundles, channel selection, fees, taxes or even price. Frye, who is hearing-impaired, just wanted to hear the television. Frye, a gunner in the Korean War,...
  • Take the walk, see story of us

    Take the walk, see story of us
    Come walk the national walk with me. A three-mile beeline through American history. I started at the Lincoln Memorial early Sunday morning, before the inaugural hordes had a chance to defy the small sign that warned "Quiet." The sun was easing up,...
  • Familiar territory: Haven't we been here before?

    For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? -- First Corinthians This is where we came in. For we've seen this movie before, or rather this all too real, all too familiar tragedy. And travesty. In the Korean...
  • The second act of John Kerry

    WASHINGTON -- General Douglas MacArthur, in being relieved of his command by President Harry Truman in the Korean War, famously declared that "old soldiers never die, they just fade away." The last part of that has most often applied as well to defeated...
