Children reading “I spy with my little eyes” — in Persian — during a language immersion class at Bahar Kids in Irvine. (Courtesy of Bahar Kids) Persian au...

The Monday Roundup: Major Taylor recognized, cycling’s bro culture, campus car culture, and more

Here are the most noteworthy items we came across in the past seven days… Remembered: Cycling legend and pioneer Major Taylor finally got some of the respect he deserves from America’s newspaper of record as he was featured in their special “Overlooked” series of obituaries. Cycling bros strike again: Discrimination against women is rife in the Outdoor industry and the bike industry is the worst, with 55% of women surveyed saying they’ve been victims of bias. As we were saying: A pro racer is ...

A California solution to immigration policy

Have we had enough of the Washington gridlock on immigration issues? When our elected federal leaders find themselves incapable of fixing a decades-old problem, California not only has the right but the obligation to act in its own interests. Virtually all Americans agree that our immigration system is broken. If Washington won’t fix it, California must act. We can begin by accepting the recommendation of a 2002 Little Hoover Commission report, as relevant today as it was back then, to establish...

Wasteful Medicaid spending prevents government from fulfilling core responsibilities

Few states can waste public healthcare dollars like California. According to a recent state audit, Medi-Cal — the Golden State’s Medicaid program, which covers about 13 million people — improperly spent more than $4 billion on thousands of ineligible enrollees from 2014 to 2017. At least one of those ineligible enrollees had been dead for years. Such waste is commonplace in Medicaid programs nationwide. Every year, the healthcare entitlement for low-income Americans wastes billions of dollars on...

Kamala Harris grabs for the brass ring

President Kamala Harris? She thinks so, anyway. After just 1 1/2 terms as California’s attorney general and two years as a U.S. senator, Harris this week declared her candidacy for the White House. She joins a Democratic field that grows larger every day and could eventually reach two or three dozen – all trumpeting their implacable disdain for President Donald Trump. “The American people deserve to have somebody who is going to fight for them, who is going to see them, who will hear them, who w...

Why can’t the U.S. Census ask a very simple question?

Should the 2020 U.S. Census ask about citizenship? Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross decided that it should, and his decision triggered an explosion of legal challenges. Last week, a federal judge in New York ruled that the question may not be asked. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman wrote, “Secretary Ross’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census—even if it did not violate the Constitution itself—was unlawful for a multitude of independent reasons and must be set aside.” Furman sa...

Local Spotlight: Reverse Mortgages in Florida

Proposed Regulations Would Allow the Majority of US Homes To Be Bought and Sold Without Being Appraised by a Human

Federal regulators have proposed loosening real-estate appraisal requirements to enable a majority of U.S. homes to be bought and sold without being evaluated by a licensed human appraiser [the link may be paywalled; alternative source]. That potentially opens the door for cheaper, faster, but largely untested property valuations based on computer algorithms. From a report: The proposal was made earlier this month by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance. ...

‘Black Girl Magic’: How 17 Black Women Swept Into Houston Courts

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston area’s courts are going to be a lot more diverse thanks to a group of 17 African-American women and their “magic.” The women, who were part of an effort dubbed the “Black Girl Magic” campaign, all won races Tuesday to be judges in various Harris County courts in an election that featured more black women on the county’s ballot than any other. The “Black Girl Magic” campaign debuted over the summer with a viral photo that featured the 17 women and two other sitting Harr...

In A Race Never Supposed To Be Close, O’Rourke And Cruz Duel For Texas’ Soul

RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — If Texas is changing under his feet, Ted Cruz doesn’t see it. The Republican senator, locked in a closer-than-expected re-election battle, insists he’s not worried about America’s largest, reliably red state slowly turning blue. That’s despite a booming Hispanic population and top firms bringing thousands of employees from more liberal locales. Cruz, who built a career as a Capitol Hill tea party troublemaker and fierce Donald Trump foe, now staunchly defends the accomp...
