Caltrans, Yorba Linda make sure President Nixon gets his props

Q. Honk: I periodically travel the Richard Nixon portion of Imperial Highway in Yorba Linda. At one end of that segment the informational sign reads, “Richard Nixon Fwy.” On the other end, a sign says “Richard Nixon Pwy.” Can you explain why? – Ken Roth, San Clemente  A. Yes. Or at least Van Nguyen, a Caltrans spokeswoman for Orange County, can. Back in 2002, a state Assembly bill prompted part of that stretch, formally called State Route 90, to be turned over to the city to help Yorba Linda com...

Trump's steps to upend Russia inquiry are unprecedented: 'Even Nixon wasn’t like him'

Democrats have compared the president’s fixation on the federal inquiry to Watergate, but legal experts say it’s worse than thatIt was yet another bombshell report for a president already ensnared in multiple investigations against his campaign, administration and family members.This time it had to do with hush money paid to women to silence them from speaking about alleged affairs they had with Donald Trump. According to a New York Times report published this week, Trump asked Matthew Whitaker,...

Decades ago, ecstasy — yes, MDMA — was used in marriage counseling

For the first decade after it was synthesized, MDMA was used in individual and couples therapy.Many therapists spoke against the criminalization of MDMA in 1985 due to the drug's therapeutic potential.A revival has occurred in recent years, with the government allowing clinical trials to move forward.

Riding The Stunning Verde Canyon Railroad – a Top USA Attraction

I found it strange that no one from our community had recommended the Verde Canyon Railroad as one of the top things to do in Sedona. We had so many other tips that were spot on including dinner at Elote Café, hiking the Devil’s Bridge, the Pink Jeep tour, and all the fantastic vortex hikes. I only knew about the Verde Canyon Railroad experience when I popped into the visitor center to get a Sedona map. I overhead a staff member telling a couple about the train trip and mentioning that it was n...

But the word that incited the most chatter was complexifier, which Bezos used twice: Here’s a piece of context: My ownership of the Washington Post is a complexifier for me. It’s unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post news coverage will wrongl...

CBS News poll Trump 2019 State of the Union Speech U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If the pollsters at CNN and CBS are correct, Donald Trump may have found the formula for winning a second term in 2020.

"But look, I was trying to write a seamless narrative, and to keep breaking it up with 'according to' qualifiers would have been extremely clunky. But in retrospect, I wish I’d done that."

Jill Abramson, caught and waffling. Interviewed at Vox.Sean Illing —Would you call any of this plagiarism?Jill Abramson — No, I wouldn’t. This was completely unintentional. I mean, I have 70 pages of footnotes and I tried to credit everyone’s work as best I can. What we’re talking about here are sets of facts that I borrowed; obviously, the language is too close in some cases, but I’m not lifting original ideas. Again, I wish I had got the citation right, but it’s not an intentional theft or tak...

'Disgusting' razor wire must go, say U.S. border city residents

It's like the front lines of some kind of war zone," Nixon, 68, told the Nogales City Council on Wednesday night. "Please take a stand and at least have them get rid of the razor wire. It's a public nuisance, it's lethal." Minutes later, the council unanimously passed a resolution condemning the use of the concertina wire as an indiscriminate use of lethal force normally reserved for battlefields and high-security prisons.

“Freedom River”, an Animated Parable about the Erosion of Freedom

In 1971, director Sam Weiss released this short animated parable narrated by Orson Welles. Concentrating on an area of growing concern in our society — the indifference that makes people blind to the injustices around them — this animated parable traces how the erosion of freedom, like the pollution of natural resources, can occur so gradually that both evade the attention of a busy and preoccupied nation. Produced back in the era of the Vietnam War and the Nixon administration, the lesson...
