Why consider only one side of the lockdown equation?

SACRAMENTO >> As the pigs proclaimed in “Animal Farm,” “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.” The oinkers ruled the farm with an iron fist and didn’t want the horses, sheep and other critters to get any improper ideas. George Orwell’s novel, of course, was an indictment of the Soviet government, which ruled in the name of the “people” — but only select people had a say in what went on. The “Animal Farm” reference is useful these days, as a small group of politicians...

Newsom’s budget revision misses an opportunity to reform: John Moorlach

The coronavirus depression gave Gov. Gavin Newsom an opportunity to advance long-needed budget reforms. Instead, as have governors before him, he kicked the can down the road. The governor’s May revision to his January budget proposal is his first crack at dealing with the economic crisis. The proposed budget is missing real program and staffing cuts for contraction, except for “trigger cuts” pending the hope of additional federal funding (to subsidize state misspending). With an unrestricted ne...

Coronavirus reveals the need for a New Deal on housing in California

In a matter of a few weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has shaken America to its core, and has brutally exposed our society’s most serious problems. This is no less true in California, where fast-rising housing costs were already creating significant hardship prior to the pandemic. The primary cause is California’s severe shortage of new housing: one study estimates that the state needs 1.3 million more affordable rental homes to meet current demand. The housing crisis made California a national p...

Los Angeles needs a new approach to justice: George Gascón

Outbreaks of coronavirus in jails and prisons are turning lethal for the accused and sheriff’s deputies alike. The situation is another fatality of mass incarceration, a system of injustice that led us to cram thousands of non-violent offenders into cages. For better or worse, this dynamic will define the arc of criminal justice reform. But how did we get here?  For decades police and prosecutors pledging to be “tough on crime” locked up the mentally ill, the addicted and the homeless, somehow e...

Team personnel will be banned from eating at restaurants on road trips. The traditional exchange of lineup cards would be eliminated, along with high-fives, fist bumps, and bat boys and girls, according to a 67-page draft of Major League Baseball's p...
