This is one of my favorite quotes from my all-time favorite president: “Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hit man.” ~Ronald Reagan Ain’t it the truth?! As the Federal Reserve tries to limit inflation by raising interest rates for banks, homebuyers are feeling […]
OPINION- At the 2001 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (street circuit), I rode in a racecar going 170 mph around the track. WOW. What could top that? I wanted to be trackside again, surrounded by the sweet smell of methanol, with the earth vibrating as racecars jockeyed for first place.

OPINION- One of the reasons this editorial board supported Rob Bonta for state attorney general was his fair-minded and restrained approach toward the administration of justice — and his determination to focus on legitimate issues such as improving police accountability. Unfortunately, his office has recently stepped outside its bounds.
OPINION- Amy Costa, incoming president of the California Community Colleges Board of Governors, aptly described the state’s “Master Plan for Higher Education” last month as “antiquated at best.” Community colleges are facing serious challenges securing baccalaureate degree programs, and the 62-year-old governing document is a major reason why.
OPINION- If there's one clear lesson from the Brittney Griner/Paul Whelan controversy that's keeping partisans in America's culture wars all worked up, it's this: Stay out of Russia.

OPINION- Republican lawmakers will take control of the House of Representatives on Jan. 3. That means that, among many other things, they will take control of the House's investigative committees and subcommittees. GOP leaders have already said they plan to probe the Biden administration's disastrous policy on the U.S.-Mexico border, the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the disastrous failure to stop the flow of fentanyl into the U.S., and more.
