Are CEQA lawsuits California’s housing villain, as Republican recall candidates say?

The solution to California’s housing crisis is simple: Scrap the California Environmental Quality Act. At least according to the major Republican candidates in the Sept. 14 recall election. “I believe one of the reasons we have a homeless problem in California is because of laws like CEQA,” front runner Larry Elder told CalMatters during a recent interview. John Cox, a Republican businessman also running to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom, said he would work with the Legislature to make sure CEQA is “s...

Wayne Gretzky turned 60 last week. He might remember 2021 as the year The Great One turned 3. The Great One wasn’t involved in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby primaries. He did not start at the Robert B. Lewis Stakes in Santa Anita, nor at the Holy Bull at Gulfstream. Figuratively he was sitting at ringside, along with top contender Life Is Good, watching his rivals try to make their claim. Doug O’Neill, his trainer, thinks The Great One has a great chance, when all these duplicate-bridge exercises ar...

Solutions must be found in the middle, not on the fringe

Centrist solutions exist to many of California’s and our nation’s problems. Politics makes it easier to attack an opponent’s position than to advance one’s own, however. Nuance dies in the toxic environment of social media-based politics. If you’re explaining, you’re losing; and simply to rebut the demonized version of your own position qualifies as losing. Far simpler is to demonize right back. Both major parties have given up being concerned about the federal deficit. If they ever return to co...

Can American institutions survive anti-Trump backlash?: Walter Williams

President Donald Trump is not the first president to be hated by a large segment of the American population. There was considerable hate for President Ronald Reagan. But even though the Democratic Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill and Reagan were polar opposites in their politics, they could be friends. Once, when Reagan confronted O’Neill about nasty things that he said about him in a newspaper, O’Neill replied, “That’s just politics, after 6 o’clock we’re buddies — we’re friends.” Politics toda...

Film review: Locked onto receivers, Kirk Cousins can't adjust quickly enough for Vikings

The clock in quarterback Kirk Cousins' head can't tick for long behind this Vikings offensive line. But blocking was no excuse for how poorly Cousins played against a Falcons defense that has allowed more passing touchdowns than any NFL team. Three interceptions in the first half is a first in Cousins' nine-year NFL career. He's never sunk a team's chances so quickly. And while each pick presented a different set of problems, there's a consistent issue in Cousins locking onto receivers and not a...
