LOS ANGELES — The pitchers have been fine these days. It’s not like they have to be. They are pretty much a trigger mechanism. Get everything started, sit back and let the Dodgers’ hitters make it rain. Alex Wood was the starter Friday night against Colorado, which was leading the Dodgers by 2½ games on […]

Secession has always held a strangely prominent place in the American imagination, and it probably always will. Restive New Englanders contemplated a break over the War of 1812 during the Hartford Convention. South Carolina champed at the bit for decades, eventually cutting ties along with a Deep South wave opposed to Lincoln’s election and an […]

It’s never a good sign when public officials refuse to answer questions. That’s what happened when CALmatters reporter Jessica Calefati visited two Los Angeles County school districts in January and asked to review their budgets as part of an investigation into educational outcomes under the state’s Local Control Funding Formula. Her requests were denied and […]

Exactly what did the Russians do to interfere in the 2016 election, and what should we do about it? The House and Senate Intelligence committees held separate hearings last week to consider those questions, and the answers were unsettling. Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the House committee that the Russian government orchestrated cyber […]

The shooting of Steve Scalise, the Republican House whip and second baseman, has inspired a new round of soul-searching about why politics is so mean these days. The answer is not in our souls. It’s in our laws. The June 14 shooting of Scalise and three other people by a left-wing nut at a Republican […]

California voters are pretty good at figuring out what is going in the state capital when it hits them directly. For example, recent polling shows that citizen awareness of the $5.2 billion annual gas and car tax is very high and, incidentally, very negative. But the same can’t be said when it comes to the […]

A friend of mine, a musician of renown, has a loft-like apartment in an urbanesque Southern California neighborhood that is, let us say, retail-adjacent. Admiring the unusual, airy space on a visit, I said, “Well, this is nice.” “Larry,” she said, in a voice that still has traces of a Manhattan accent: “I live in […]

LOS ANGELES — California Gov. Jerry Brown has blocked parole for Charles Manson follower and convicted killer Bruce Davis. Brown’s rejection issued late Friday night is the fifth time Davis has been recommended for parole by a state panel only to see it blocked by a governor, and continues Brown’s unflinching pattern of refusing to […]

LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers on Saturday under ideal circumstances. He will not be required to halt a losing streak; the Dodgers’ 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Friday was their 14th win in their last 15 games. Nor should Kershaw worry about getting help from his offense. After […]
