Kate Hudson’s stripper pole, money-hungry Duchess Meghan, and Bruce Springsteen’s fear of fans, in this week’s dubious tabloids

Tabloid headlines are from Mars, tabloid stories are from Venus. That’s how far removed are this week’s stories and the headlines that top them. “Scott Peterson murdered 2 other women!” screams the National Enquirer cover. No he didn’t, says the story inside, despite the spread headline: “Scott Peterson a Serial Killer!” Convicted wife-killer Peterson is nothing more than a possible suspect in two cold case deaths to which he has the most tenuous of connections. “Jen Garner Recruited by Hollywoo...

Farewell to Barbara and George H.W. Bush

Amazing that Barbara and George were married 73 years. Barbara led the way only months ago. George was sure to follow soon. He must have terribly missed Barbara. Should we mourn the loss of two such well spent lives? Such lives should be celebrated. Only their bodies are gone. They wore out their flesh but their souls are still here. Good people never die. Barbara and President Bush fought the good fight, they finished the course, they kept the faith. [Author: [email protected]

Big West basketball: UCSB, minus Max Heidegger, still thriving on defense

UC Santa Barbara’s men’s basketball team got home at 4 o’clock Monday morning, a bitter taste in its mouth after a close contest in Seattle. The Gauchos just missed a statement win against Washington, falling 67-63 to the Huskies. UCSB had trailed most of the game but fought back to tie, and even had a chance to take a lead with 1:35 left to play. The Huskies closed the game on a 7-3 run to end the Gauchos’ five-game winning streak. UCSB would have naturally preferred a win over their first Powe...

Comment on gingersnaps by Barbara

Just wondering if anyone else had an issue with the cookie seem like it was too buttery. They are a nice flavor but the butter issue is odd for a snap cookie. I measured out all the ingredients correctly so wondering if there is a mistake in the recipe. Also rolled them in crystal sugar and put a small piece of crystallized ginger on top. Thanks.

G EORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH, the 41st president of the United States, died on November 30 at age 94.

President George H.W. Bush mourned by both parties in Southern California as kind, tough man of service

In 1988, California’s politics were different than they are now, and the right Republican candidate could win a majority here. Republican George Bush carried California in that election — the last time a GOP presidential nominee won the state — defeating Democrat Michael Dukakis in every Southern California county except Los Angeles. The region’s affection for Bush was partly attributable to the fact he was vice president under former California Gov. Ronald Reagan. But it was largely a tribute t...
