Ford lost that election because Reagan ran against him for the GOP nomination. After having to defend himself against someone in his own party, he was pretty battered going into the general election. Unless a Dem or strong independent challenges Obama, the same thing probably won't happen.

“The city should be seeking the truth rather than trying to carve out areas of secrecy,” said James Spertus, who represents Rizzo." mmmm....isn't that how this whole thing started?

His letter to the parole board is his position. Tough on crime...until it's one of your own.

Keep in mind prop 13 came about because increased property taxes were was causing people with fixed incomes to lose their homes. The outrage from this was the impetus of the Jarvis-Gann initiative known as prop 13. It sounds like a great idea to make the the tax playing field more even, but get set for a rough ride as reassessed homes go into foreclosure making for an already difficult housing market worse.

Glad it never rains in Southern California.

L3 is a net neutrality issue because of Comcast's financial incentives to protect it's own programming offerings. If consumers find it less expensive to use Netflix than to upgrade their Comcast subscriptions to get movies online, putting restrictions on L3 represents less a bandwidth issue and more an anti-competitive issue. As mergers continue in the online arena, this becomes increasingly important given that cable companies have neighborhood monopolies.

I think it's a little unfair to compare it to Broadcast News because most young movie viewers probably aren't event aware of the film so for them Morning Glory will be a new experience. I noticed no one is even mentioning Network with Peter Finch and Faye Dunaway (although when Broadcast News came out there were probably similar comparisons). I like the trailers and, honestly, I could use a little fluff in my life nowadays.

We canceled our cable a month ago but kept our phone and internet with the same provider. Movie channels are more important to us than sports but not as important as rent. Sigh... Big Lots sells bins of movies for $3-5. Maybe we'll see 'Glee' in there in a year or so.

I'm actually kind of looking forward to it. I liked the original (John Wayne doing one-handed reloads on a pair of rifles while riding a horse rocked), but it'll be interesting to see what this new version brings to the screen.

I wish 'La Nina's' also meant less gophers :-( ...

Go Gals! The only thing I'm surprised about is that there weren't already female linemen/women. Men or women...definitely dangerous work and if this is a typical training class, there was probably a 75% dropout rate (which is average for men or women). Way to go those who finished and be safe out there! Don't bag on the ladies, please! When it's raining with the wind blowing and your power goes out, they're the one's who'll be out there risking it all to get your cable back on (your box runs on electricity...remember?)!
