Heisler: It’s shaping up as Magic Johnson vs. Jerry West for grand prize, LeBron

Now, Duel of the Laker Titans. Popular as the NBA is here with two teams playing to packed houses and pulling down hundreds of millions in local TV revenue, it’s been a long time since we were actually relevant, with the Clippers still in eclipse while disappearing early in the playoffs and the Lakers coming […]

Whicker: Alex Wood opens the gate, Dodgers run free again

LOS ANGELES — The pitchers have been fine these days. It’s not like they have to be. They are pretty much a trigger mechanism. Get everything started, sit back and let the Dodgers’ hitters make it rain. Alex Wood was the starter Friday night against Colorado, which was leading the Dodgers by 2½ games on […]

Despite rhetoric, secession isn’t easy — or worth it

Secession has always held a strangely prominent place in the American imagination, and it probably always will. Restive New Englanders contemplated a break over the War of 1812 during the Hartford Convention. South Carolina champed at the bit for decades, eventually cutting ties along with a Deep South wave opposed to Lincoln’s election and an […]

Learning how education funds are spent

It’s never a good sign when public officials refuse to answer questions. That’s what happened when CALmatters reporter Jessica Calefati visited two Los Angeles County school districts in January and asked to review their budgets as part of an investigation into educational outcomes under the state’s Local Control Funding Formula. Her requests were denied and […]

Don’t stop worrying about our elections just yet

Exactly what did the Russians do to interfere in the 2016 election, and what should we do about it? The House and Senate Intelligence committees held separate hearings last week to consider those questions, and the answers were unsettling. Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the House committee that the Russian government orchestrated cyber […]

Legislative, court actions have made politics harsh

The shooting of Steve Scalise, the Republican House whip and second baseman, has inspired a new round of soul-searching about why politics is so mean these days. The answer is not in our souls. It’s in our laws. The June 14 shooting of Scalise and three other people by a left-wing nut at a Republican […]

What citizen taxpayers should know about the California budget

California voters are pretty good at figuring out what is going in the state capital when it hits them directly. For example, recent polling shows that citizen awareness of the $5.2 billion annual gas and car tax is very high and, incidentally, very negative. But the same can’t be said when it comes to the […]

Southern California’s dead malls could be places to live

A friend of mine, a musician of renown, has a loft-like apartment in an urbanesque Southern California neighborhood that is, let us say, retail-adjacent. Admiring the unusual, airy space on a visit, I said, “Well, this is nice.” “Larry,” she said, in a voice that still has traces of a Manhattan accent: “I live in […]
