Bennie Boatwright stepping up and leading USC at the right time

The 'most powerful man in politics,' demonized in this week’s dubious tabloids

If you roll up a copy of this week’s Globe tabloid into the shape of a seashell and hold it to your ear, you can hear the sound of President Trump screaming. Just because they’re packed with fact-challenged celebrity gossip doesn’t mean that the tabloids can’t give us insight into American politics. President Trump has long used the National Enquirer and Globe as mouthpieces for his thoughts, and this week it appears that trend continues. Just because Globe and National Enquirer chief David Pec...

Shutdown Hampers Wildfire Preparations

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Just two months after a wildfire wiped out Paradise, California, officials are gearing up for this year’s fire season and fear the government shutdown could make it even more difficult than one of the worst in history.

Alexander: Who’s next to go? Grading the jobs being done by SoCal coaches

There are, amazingly, those in this country who still believe L.A. is some kind of laid-back sports paradise, where folks arrive late and leave early and there’s no pressure on players or coaches to succeed.

Lime, Bird, and other scooter companies just proved they can help take cars off the road

After a four-month trial, Portland's Department of Transportation has proof that e-scooters are taking cars off the streets. That's welcome news for the scooter companies, which pitch a solution to congestion and pollution through their vehicles.  But there are still problems in low-income neighborhoods and with rules of the road, the results show.  The report is the first granular data we have about how scooters can integrate into a city's transportation network.  City officials in Portland ...

Man cleans filthy bathroom at national park, then sends Trump $28 bill

Although many national parks are still open during the longest government shutdown in US history, there is no one around to clean the increasingly filthy bathrooms. Except, perhaps, for one man, Dan Little, who found the bathroom at Mt. Hood National Forest Sno-Park in Oregon to be so disgusting, he cleaned it himself. He then sent a $28 bill to Trump. That's the spirit! Of course, with Trump's disgraceful reputation of not paying his employees for their work, it's highly doubtful Mr. Little wil...
