The “About LAPD” page at JoinLAPD.com tells us: In 1955, a contest was announced in the Los Angeles Police Department’s internal magazine, BEAT. The contest involved devising a motto for the Los Angeles Police Academy. The motto needed to be something that would succinctly express the ideals to which those who serve as Los Angeles Police […]

The world lost a real treasure yesterday. Robin Williams gave us the gift of countless verses, of howls of hilarity, gleeful giggles and even snort-inducing snickers. For the laughs, I’ll be forever grateful. But he also had the ability to get truly serious, and to bring us to tears. His performances in Dead Poets Society, […]

I’d always nod along when Randi Rhodes would say that it’s not if it’ll happen, but when. And I, like she, always wondered what the catalyst will be that finally lights the fuse.

  I don’t know which on is more offensive – Congressman Steve King’s comments to the DREAMers who dared question him about his desire to deport them, or Senator Rand (Ran) Paul’s dine and dash upon hearing them identify themselves as DREAMers! I began the show with the whole video, embedded below for your convenience, […]

President Obama admitted the US tortured “some folks” following the 9-11 attacks. Obama has used the word “torture” before to describe the harsh interrogation tactics used at CIA-run secret prisons during the Bush administration. But his words at a White House news conference were notably more direct than previous statements. The comments reflect the line […]

I was a bit worried that there might not be enough news to talk about with Congress going on a 5 1/2 week recess but, then again, it’s not like they do anything when they’re in session. But the drama that unfolded yesterday as they all attempted to leave DC was the perfect snapshot to […]
