2 die after being electrocuted by downed power lines in Panorama City

A man and a woman died in Panorama City early Monday morning after they were apparently electrocuted by a downed power line, police and fire officials said. The 53-year-old man and the 20-year-old woman both collapsed in the yard of a home in the 14700 block of Tupper Street at around 2:45 a.m., shortly after a power outage struck the neighborhood amid overnight rains.

Will reducing criminal penalties reduce crime?

California is conducting an immense sociological experiment, testing whether reducing prison time for criminal acts will, in the long run, mean less crime. Over the last decade, politicians and voters have lowered penalties for dozens of serious and minor crimes, reduced state prison populations by about 40% and adopted multiple programs to treat underlying conditions, such as drug use and lack of education, to deter offenders from committing new crimes. It’s been a dramatic turnaround from prev...

Americans must not let freedom of speech slip away

We are losing freedom of speech in this country at a speed that could win an Olympic gold medal. And that’s saying something, because the Olympics feature teams from some of the most accomplished totalitarian nations in world history. It’s alarming that good old American know-how is being used to crush those who express an opinion that has been deemed unacceptable. Let’s start by acknowledging that violence is unacceptable. Violence isn’t speech. But at the same time, speech isn’t violence. So l...

For first Black Defense Secretary, racism challenge is personal

By Lolita C. Baldor | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Newly confirmed Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will have to contend not only with a world of security threats and a massive military bureaucracy, but also with a challenge that hits closer to home: rooting out racism and extremism in the ranks. Austin took office Friday as the first Black defense chief, in the wake of the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, where retired and current military members were among the rioters touting far-right...

GOP wrestles with the post-Trump future

By Steve Peoples | Associated Press For the first time in more than a decade, Republicans are waking up to a Washington where Democrats control the White House and Congress, adjusting to an era of diminished power, deep uncertainty and internal feuding. The shift to minority status is always difficult, prompting debates over who is to blame for losing the last election. But the process is especially intense as Republicans confront profound questions about what the party stands for without Donald...

A more perfect and more lasting Union: Jackie Gingrich Cushman

It was a long 2020. It featured a pandemic, politics and economic hardships. Many of us are tired of the political polarization and the constant spewing of hate. It’s not just that we don’t want to be hated; we also don’t want to hate. We yearn to get along, to make progress and to work together to make our country better for our children. We’re exhausted, frustrated and feeling helpless. We want to make a difference, and I know we can. On the afternoon of Jan. 6, as our nation’s Capitol was und...

Polling the troops about their politics is a bad idea

When Congressman Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, suggested on CNN this week that the National Guard troops providing security for today’s inauguration might pose an “insider” threat, it was too much even for CNN news anchor Jim Sciutto. “The Guard is 90 some odd percent, I believe, male,” Cohen asserted. “Only about 20% of white males voted for Biden. You have got to figure that the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative — and I see that on my social media, and we know it — there are probably...

On Biden’s day, U.S. capital swiftly pivots to life after Trump

WASHINGTON — Quite suddenly, if only for a freeze-frame moment, everything old was new again, starting when Joe Biden stepped outside into his day and Donald Trump vanished inside Air Force One for his flight to private life in Florida. Democratic and Republican leaders worshipped together at church, just one tradition dusted off. The centuries-old rituals of a peaceful transfer of power unfolded from the high platform of the flag-bedecked Capitol, still recovering from insurrection. A law e...
