GELFAND’S WORLD--We’ve experienced two weeks of protests and marches demanding that American cities and police forces reform the way they treat people.
@THE GUSS REPORT-On Wednesday morning, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott introduced to a national television audience a proposed plan for police reform.
PART OF AN ONGOING SERIES-Recap of the $2.7 Billion Question – Part 1:
AT LENGTH-For most of my life racism was something people just didn’t talk about.
LA WATCHDOG--The City Council’s fully loaded budget of over $55 million is less than transparent.
GUEST WORDS--As we all looked on, in horror over the murder of Mr. Floyd, we, collectively as a nation, thought something must be done; a tipping point was reached.
OTHERWORDS--Dear JK Rowling,
EASTSIDER-The guilty plea by George Esparza in our continuing LA criminal probe shows his racketeering continued while on the state payroll for Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo. (photo above, right) Local Democrats refuse to be pushovers and are demanding explanations.
ALPERN AT LARGE--Some of us go on and on with the questions, while others claim to have all the answers. To most of us who want answers to our questions, but don't see the answers coming any time soon (or who see conflicting answers that drive us crazy), welcome to the Human Condition.
ONE MAN’S OPINION--The sadistic murder of George Floyd outrages the world. Let me re-phrase that, “The world, other than Donald Trump, Attorney William P. Barr and their coterie of predatory racists, is outraged.”
ALPERN AT LARGE--There has been much ballyhoo about funding more or less for police, for affordable housing, for pensions, and for our parks.
