Considerations in making a major disaster tax claim

Winter can be gorgeous. It also can be disastrous, as all us Texans more accustomed to heat waves than winter storms found out last week. (Photo by Kay Bell) It's been near 80 degrees for the last two days in my part of Texas.

Defending Quadricameralism

     From ninth grade Civics on, we are taught that the U.S. federal government (and all but one of its states) relies on bicameralism.   Although arguably true to the constitutional text, this account is grossly oversimplified.   Just as the rise of political parties and other developments since the founding have transformed presidential elections, judicial nominations, and other aspects of our constitutional order, they also have transformed bicameralism into something considerably more co...

RIP Radical Poet and Revolutionary Publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1919-2021)

“Democracy is not a spectator sport,” Lawrence Ferlinghetti proclaimed on the wall of his City Lights bookstore, a San Francisco fixture since the poet, activist, and publisher founded the landmark with Peter D. Martin in 1953. Ferlinghetti, who died on Monday at age 101, was himself a fixture, a venerated steward of the counterculture. (See him read “Last Prayer,” above, in a clip from The Last Waltz). On his 100th birthday–on which the city instituted an annual “Lawrence Ferlinghetti D...

LAUSD parents want special ed teachers – especially those eligible for vaccines – back on campus

In the ongoing debate over how soon educators should return to in-person work, some Los Angeles Unified parents are fuming over the revelation that certain employees who work with special education students have been eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations since January but have yet to provide in-person services to some of the district’s most vulnerable students.

Health care workers get COVID-19 in the community more often than the workplace, Cedars-Sinai study finds

LOS ANGELES — Health care workers might not be that different from the general population in the factors that determine their risk of getting COVID-19, researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said Wednesday.

But it suggests that the community — rather than the workplace — is the more common source of coronavirus exposure. Th...
