"At the 66-acre site, groups of beige trailers encircle a giant white dining tent, a soccer field and a basketball court."

"There is a bright blue hospital tent with white bunk beds inside. A legal services trailer has the Spanish word 'Bienvenidos,' or welcome, on a banner on its roof. There are trailers for classrooms, a barber shop, a hair salon. The facility has its own ambulances and firetrucks, as well as its own water supply.... he most colorful trailer is at the entryway, where flowers, butterflies and handmade posters still hang on its walls...." From "First migrant facility for children opens under Biden" ...

It will be hard for the WaPo "fact checker" to give 4 Pinocchios to Joe Biden. He has to back off one Pinocchio because... well, why exactly?

Here's Biden repeatedly asserting that "he's traveled 17,000 miles with Xi Jingping":   Biden is making a lot of misstatements of fact. The WaPo fact checker, Glenn Kessler, writes:During his recent town hall on CNN, President Biden made a number of mistaken claims and assertions. He suggested racehorse owners receive tax breaks worth $9 billion, almost enough to pay for free attendance at community college — a claim that left tax experts scratching their heads. He said that the $7.25 minimum w...

If Trump knew there was a plan to storm the Capitol building, then his speech to the crowd was an incitement, even though he never told the crowd to commit any act of violence.

2 days ago, I read Trump's speech looking for any language that could support the claim that he incited the crowd to storm the Capitol. I wrote a post listing the 7 most violence-inducing statements. They're about fighting and showing strength and never giving up, but they're all consistent with an idea of having a big, traditional street protest — with lots of people marching and displaying their passion for the cause through big numbers, determined-looking faces, and lots words on signs and in...

Paul Westphal created his own lanes, but they always came back to basketball

Basketball is a game, an industry, a cultural brand, a means to an end. The longer you stayed within that first parameter, the closer you were to Paul Westphal. Westphal coached in the 1993 NBA Finals for the Phoenix Suns. He also coached Southwestern Baptist Bible College in Scottsdale, Ariz. Other than the fact that his son Michael approached him during one Southwestern game to get a dollar for a Coke and Paul gave it to him without taking his eyes off the court, the two arenas were all the sa...

Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp try to catch the great Rams receiver duos

Editor’s note: This is one in a series of stories looking at the upcoming Rams season in the context of the team’s rich history as the franchise starts a new era with the move to SoFi Stadium. Rams wide receivers Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp see themselves as a team within the team, working together to be one of the NFL’s premier pass-catching pairs. “I think we’re not like the flashiest group of receivers, but we’re just up there with production, up there with the best if not the best as a grou...

Gardening: Here’s a plant family with thousands of varieties you can eat

In these uncertain times, there is reassurance in knowing that there is one family of plants whose every member you can eat. I refer to the mustard family (Brassicaceae), which includes more than 3,700 species, each of them munchable. Mustard family members are easily recognizable by their flowers, which have four petals arranged symmetrically around a central axis. When wandering through the hills and canyons of Southern California, you are sure to encounter some of them, especially short-pod m...

Whicker: Can USC, Enfield afford to miss the NCAA tournament again?

LOS ANGELES >> The national impression from USC’s win Thursday night was the 74-foot lightning bolt from the hands of Onyeka Okongwu. As the first-half buzzer went off and as Okongwu was absorbing an uncalled foul, he slammed the ball against the backboard and into the hoop. Without the glass, that shot might have careened into the L.A. skyline that one can see from the many available seats at Galen Center. It was a stunning example of Okongwu’s strength. It also gave the Trojans a 26-21 halftim...

Books with talking animals as characters that are written for adults.

"The Overdue Death of Democratic 'Pragmatism'/Centrism in disguise is the wrong strategy for stopping Trump."

A headline that makes me sad. The article, at The New Republic, is by Alex Shephard.Substantively, it's another one of these Amy-Klobuchar-must-be-destroyed articles. [T]he press has cemented her identity as a pragmatist because she fills a key narrative role in the 2020 race: serving as a contrast to the supposed idealists who are driving most of the conversation (and most of the voter excitement) in the Democratic primary. This is shaping up to be the defining conflict of the race...This is no...

[T]his frustrated executive’s politics aren’t widely shared by people who haven’t been to Davos. In a 2017 study, the political scientist Lee Drutman plotted the 2016 electorate along two axes, one dealing with social issues and identity, the other with economics and trade. Only 3.8 percent of voters fell into the socially liberal/economically c...

Wolf: Would a USC victory in Pac-12 title game ease friction facing the program?

If USC defeats Stanford in the Pacific-12 Conference championship game, expect to hear a lot about how the Trojans won their first conference title since 2008. The question is who this satisfies? It will definitely please USC coach Clay Helton and the players who celebrate the victory. It should please a portion of the fan base. But will it impress USC athletic director Lynn Swann and some of the program’s more influential boosters? Or even the loud chorus of critics who emerged even after the U...

"Beyond the *possibility* that it a mountain lion entered a house to eat a dog and the fact that most of CA is a habitat for mountain lions, there is little of use about the article at all. How did the animal get inside? How many attacks have there been on pets in recent years? On humans?

This kind of shoddy journalism is not why I bought a subscription to this paper."That's the most-liked ...
