Grow the Fairplex into a real destination

Fairplex, the 487-acre event space in Pomona where the Los Angeles County Fair is held each fall, is in one sense, at least, a lot like other big-draw public places in the county. The Rose Bowl. The Coliseum. The Queen Mary. The Hollywood Bowl. The Greek Theater. All are iconic Southern California venues with great programming for paying guests. But for the residents who live hard by these icons, the crowds, traffic and noise they generate can be a test of good neighborliness. For some time now,...

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is name-calling Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff for saying Matthew Whitaker’s appointment as acting attorney general is unconstitutional.

This month, Americans observed the hundredth anniversary of the armistice formally ending hostilities in the Great War — or World War One, as it later came to be known. For many of us, the world of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires seems to hold almost no relevance to our own. Yet even if the bygone age feels inaccessible and uninformative, the simplest facts about life a century ago ought to dramatically influence our attitudes today. The wholesale slaughter and chaos of 1918 did shape o...

We have a schoolyard bully in the White House: Letters

Re “Acosta accosted by Trump, but he’s no martyr” (Doug McIntyre, Nov. 11): I don’t blame Jim Acosta challenging Trump on the word invasion. Trump is bully puppeting the situation by lying about the caravan in order to incite chaos to make it look ugly. Then he can say I told you so and use it to get his wall built. The president saying we have a difference of opinion and calling Acosta a “terrible person” is his infantile schoolyard bully personality, and in no way was it “vitriolic” just becau...
