    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...
  • Do we love L.A.? We don't always vote like it

    Do we love L.A.? We don't always vote like it
    No, wait, don't turn the page. Yes, I'll admit it. This is yet another column on Tuesday's election in Los Angeles, the race half the city doesn't care about and the other half hasn't heard about, but DO NOT turn the page. OK, I'll give you $5 to read...
  • Greuel's campaign of 'gotchas' conveys desperation

    Greuel's campaign of 'gotchas' conveys desperation
    It's beginning to look like there's nothing Wendy Greuel wouldn't do to become the next mayor of Los Angeles. Her boatload of big-money backers seems fond of trash-talking gibes so slimy, they're apt to backfire and turn voters off. -------------------...

    L.A.'s walking dead
    Mark the date, remember the day. On March 5, 2013, Los Angeles redefined apathy. A measly 16% of the city's registered voters — or perhaps around 20% once all the mail-in ballots are counted — turned out in an election with the following...

    Please, newsmakers, he doesn't need this strain
    Having been told by healthcare professionals to take it easy after recent medical challenges, is it safe for me to continue following the local news? It's not easy to keep your blood pressure under control while reading that former Bell Police Chief...
  • In L.A., it was a three-column day

    You know you live in a wild news town when a massive manhunt for an ex-cop leads to a dramatic shootout and inferno on a snow-covered mountain, the mayor pitches a tax increase that's beginning to look like attempted extortion, and the rebuked local...

    Inviting powerful DWP union boss for a drink
    You can add the Los Angeles County district attorney's office to the long list of agencies and public officials going after one of the most powerful political players in the city. A D.A. source told me Tuesday that prosecutors have renewed their...
  • Steve Soboroff, citizens' voice on the LAPD

    Steve Soboroff, citizens' voice on the LAPD
    Steve Soboroff has rounded the bases in L.A. government, from the Harbor Commission to rec and parks, even a run for mayor. He's "Uncle Steve," the booster who practically drove the Endeavour space shuttle to its new home, a businessman who drove the...
  • Newton: In L.A. politics, money still talks

    Newton: In L.A. politics, money still talks
    Money is a measure of political viability. Those candidates seen as having potential attract it; those seen as long shots struggle to fill their campaign coffers. And with money, once you've raised some, it's a lot easier to raise more. In the money...
  • Newton: An opening for the outliers

    Newton: An opening for the outliers
    The most remarkable proposal of the mayor's race to date took most of the field by surprise last week. On Tuesday, Controller Wendy Greuel announced that, if elected, she intends to add 2,000 officers to the ranks of the LAPD and 800 firefighters to the...
