I'm totally on-board with my support for nuclear energy when uranium mine tailings stop polluting the Colorado River, when high level radioactive waste can be safely stored in facilities guaranteed to stay bombproof for 100,000 years, when nuke plants stop exploding, and and when the nuclear power industry no longer requires massive government subsidies.

Ryan P get a clue. Many of us stopped doing business with food vendors that use expanded foam containers decades ago. Trash generated from those containers is one of our worst environmental problems That's exactly why McDonald's and numerous other companies have stopped using them.

Politicians actually get a clue about how to protect our crucial ecosystems? This is huge!

Marcia Hanscom and Ron Van de Hoek's fake environmental non-profit Wetland Defense Fund is in reality funded by local residents who care nothing about the lagoon, they just don't want to be inconvenienced by the restotration work.

California prisons are intended for these horrible people. Those convicted of non-violent crimes should be on closely-supervised probation. They should be working full-time and paying out much of their income on restitution to their victims and to the State. Such a policy would go a long way in solving California's financial problems.

Just being a Nazi does not make the guy a bad person. I know several Nazis who are respectable law-abiding citizens with some whacky opinions. I also know plenty of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Catholics, Atheists, Native Americans, and other non-Nazis that are definitely a threat to themselves and/or their community. It is apparent that this particular guy of Nazi persuasion somehow drove his kid insane.

Had the father survived, he should have been charged with endangering a child for giving the kid access to a loaded firearm. Since the guy died, it's a moot point. What the heck is the Dad thinking when he allows this kid, especially since he had a history of anger problems, access to his gun? Either the ammunition should have been locked away or the gun should have had a trigger lock installed. The kid deserves grief counseling, not incarceration.

This is an obvious cry for help from a victim of mental illness. What would really help him out is to give him a job with no work of responsibilities. Perhaps there;s an opening at the Santa Monica Rent Control Board.

The article states that Hirsch frequented Jewish centers seeking charity. Perhaps he demanded more than they could offer and as a result he became resentful, then revengeful.

dr reality check's post has a very odd statement: "Seems odd a transient would have the know-how and materials for bomb making." Do you think transients are completely helpless? Just because a person is homeless doesn't mean they don't know anything or can't do anything.

Great job! Now please get to work uncovering corruption in the City of Los Angeles.

This nutcase should be pretty easy to find and apprehend. If he has any smarts he is actively seeking a good attorney and a psychiatrist that will certify him as seriously mentally ill and cannot be held responsible for his actions.

The wife really should have warned the police about any possibility that the perp had a gun.

Jimenez exhibited incredible bravery and did an excellent job. I hope he is amply rewarded.

Lucky Loosie, you are obviously confused. Daroosee was not racing, he was a totally innocent victim. This is an excellnt ruling, a rare case in which the court shifts costs of the crime from the taxpayer to the perpetrator.

Pauly's apologists frquently complain about the Muslim religion's poor treatment of women and other civil rights violations. These problems are cultural, not religious. Muslim women in the U.S. have equal rights to men. Are they "less Muslim" than Muslims in the Middle East? Under our "Christian" nation's rule of law, slaves and women were denied all kinds of civil rights until quite recently. Are we any "less Christian" now that slaves are free and women can vote?

I think its a good assumption that Pauly's political career is finished, but she has positioned herself well to get hired as a poltical commentator on Fox News.

What kind of ignorant, intolerant, anti-american, anti-freedom-of-religion nutcase protests a religious gathering in the United States of America?? What kind of ignorant, intolerant, anti-american, anti-freedom-of-religion nutcase threatens another ignorant, intolerant, anti-american, anti-freedom-of-religion nutcase for engaging in a stupid ignorant, intolerant, anti-american, anti-freedom-of-religion protest? These people really need to get a life.

I think it's a good assumption that this kind of crap has been happening for quite a while, but only recently escalated to the point that the public finally learned about it. Only then was action taken to stop it. Notice the statement: "We have never seen this many deputies disciplined so severely in the 10 years we’ve been here over one incident. It’s unprecedented." No one seems surprised at the problem, just that something is finally being done about it.

It appears from the article that the boat was left adrift. Good news for whoever finds it.

"...The 30-foot sailboat had no, food, water or safety equipment.." This is the kind of stuation where the dimwit should be forced to reimburse the Coast Guard for rescue expenses, plus he should have his boat impounded so he won't do this again.

This effort is well-intended but totally off the mark and is based on fundamental ignorance about how life on Mother Earth operates. We cannot hope to slow or stop global warming. We can realistically, however, reduce, stop, or even reverse the much more serious problem of ocean acidification by reducing our atmspheric CO2 emissions. We need our government representatives to scrap their boneheaded global warming initiatives and instead launch a major program to stop "Ocean Acidification."

This is my favorite type of article that the LAT does. This sheds light on how our tax money is squandered and how power corrupts so many bureaucrats. If the allegations in this article are true, its time to purge little piggies from the Housing Authority staff.

It is wonderful that every student at Micheltorena Elementary School learns the joys of growing your own food. I was very fortunate as a kid to grow up with two sets of grandparents that were prodigious gardeners. Many of my earliest memories are picking and eating fresh plums at my "California" grandparents' house, and picking and eating sweet corn at my other grandparents' huge vegetable garden at their cabin in northern Minnesota. Sure, vegetable gardening is hard work, but hard work is good, especially at a young age. Because it is grown with such care and is so fresh, homegrown food is better than any you can buy at a store. Plus, it is a huge benefit to our natural environment.

Thank you Rosendahl for bringing some sane discussion to this issue. The city should absolutely not increase it's debt based on promises frem AEG and chants by our Cheerleader Mayor. If the project does go through, I propose that we honor our great Mayor by naming a Mens Room at the stadium after him to commemmorate all the tax money he flushed down the toilet.
