Remembering land value tax advocate Mason Gaffney

Screenshot from an interview in 2011 of Georgist economist and professor Mason Gaffney (Posted on Vimeo by the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation) Not to be morbid, but I like reading obituaries. They reflect not only on peoples' lives, but also provide a look at the worlds and times in which they lived. Well-written obits essentially are mini history lessons. I came across one such commemoration last week that introduced to me the late Mason Gaffney, as well as Henry George and the economic ...

Riots are good for rioters and this president

When we read someone the Riot Act, we do so metaphorically, attempting to calm them down by reminding them that somewhere there exists legal language that would punish their unruly behavior if they don’t stop it right this sec. But in his book “Riot. Strike. Riot.: The New Era of Uprisings,” UC Davis poet and provocateur Joshua Clover reminds us that there is an actual Riot Act, enacted in Britain in 1714 by King George I in the wake of “the Coronation Riots attending his ascension.” And we Yank...

Clippers face a Pelicans team with plenty of motivation

In different measures, some good, some bad, others ugly, the Clippers looked Thursday like they hadn’t played in serious NBA action since March 10. With a team-high 30 points, Paul George backed up his proclamation that his shoulders benefited from four months of rest, that they’d healed completely, and that his psyche feels better for it. In other respects – a ghastly 22 turnovers and 30 personal fouls – the shorthanded Clippers’ cobwebs were enough to elicit shrieks. Now, on the heels of their...

Alexander: Relocated Lakers vs. Clippers rivalry still entertains

If you’re a Lakers or Clippers fan, I don’t blame you if you feel like you’ve been robbed. Under normal circumstances, the road to the NBA championship would have already run through Staples Center. In the pre-pandemic Western Conference, L.A.’s teams were 1-2, and either could make a convincing case for its championship credentials. The Lakers were 49-14, had polished off Milwaukee and the Clippers on the final weekend before the suspension of play, and LeBron James was assembling a serious MVP...

Lakers win slugfest over Clippers in NBA restart to charge out of the hiatus

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — From the night this NBA season began, to the night it began again, the Lakers-Clippers has carried the feel of a heavyweight bout. In March, each team seemed trim, limber, ready to contend. After a hiatus unlike any in the sports’ history at four-and-a-half months long, the Lakers and Clippers felt ungainly and awkward with lurching stops and starts — two fighters not quite in their primes, still feeling one another out. Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma (0) is defended...

8 best seafood restaurants in the San Fernando Valley for takeout, delivery

I was hoping, by this point, to be doing upbeat, optimistic columns about the joys of returning to dining out in Southern California. And, perhaps next week, I’ll be able to. At least in terms of the great new trend of outdoor dining streets, which are popping up all over town. But at the moment, I’m waiting to see if rather than opening up, we shut down again, with the return of a “safer at home” ruling — which means, of course, more weeks of takeout cuisine. Not that there’s anything wrong wit...

Theodore Roosevelt’s Heartwarming Letters to His Children

When Theodore Roosevelt assumed the presidency in 1901, he became, at 42 years old, the youngest president in the country’s history, and his children with wife Edith were similarly youthful in age. Theodore III (14), Kermit (12), Ethel (10), Archibald (7), and Quentin (4), along with seventeen-year-old Alice from TR’s first marriage, brought an unprecedented level of enthusiastic, early-years energy to the White House.  Though the responsibilities of his office were great, Roosevelt always trie...

Looking back on The Beatles "Hey Jude" from a world a little colder

Even as something of a Beatlephile, I learned a few things reading this Rolling Stone article from 2018 about The Beatles' most "open-hearted masterpiece," Hey Jude. Cynthia and Julian thought “Hey Jude” was for them. John heard it as the ballad of John and Yoko. But neither side was wrong — countless people around the world have heard this homily speaking to them. “The movement you need is on your shoulder” — John was so right about that line, and as Paul says, he thinks of John every time he s...

The veteran guard joins teammates Montrezl Harrell and Patrick Beverley as having departed with an excused absence. The Clippers, who are considered among the title favorites in Orlando, Florida, also continue to await the arrival of guard Landry Shamet and center Ivica Zubac, who have yet to be seen on the NBA campus, where the league is slated to restart its suspended season July 30.
