    Jane Harman: Out of the fray
    Jane Harman has a new address -- on Pennsylvania Avenue. No, not that address. She's the new honcho at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Starting in 1992, she won nine elections in Southern California's coastal 36th Congressional District -- some of them squeakers, the last one a blowout -- before she quit. In those years, the moderate Democrat carved her way through the clashing waves of the political surf: pro-choice, pro-gun restrictions for her Venice constituents, pro "smart" defense programs and a flag-burning ban for more conservative voters in towns like Torrance. She's been quoted as saying she was the best Republican in the Democratic Party. Harman has left a pretty safe Democratic district for the candidates running in the May 17 primary to replace her. In spite of that D.C. office, she'll be voting in the 36th -- but she won't say for whom.

    Time is running out for sensible action on fracking regulations
    SACRAMENTO—California may be on the brink of another great oil boom. It consequently could be heading into an environmental disaster. A state senator from Agoura Hills is trying to allow the first while heading off the second. Democrat Fran...
