Close To Home

Close to Home: County workers deserve a living wage

As we celebrate Labor Day, let’s recognize that a generation of widening inequality has ignited a grassroots movement for economic justice, while gridlock in Washington, D.C., prevents the federal government from acting.

National Columnists

Pitts: An Uzi, a 9-year-old and American exceptionalism

What kind of shooting range allows a prepubescent girl to fire an Uzi?

Paul Gullixson

Gullixson: A disarming approach to protests

Why is it that we have such a hard time discussing how those in the profession of public safety sometimes, like everyone else, make mistakes?

Pete Golis

Golis: Will Facebook make us better citizens?

We hoped new opportunities to communicate would increase our civic literacy. To date, they have only made it easier to distort reality and pretend we don’t have to get along with others.

Editorials

PD Editorial: Yes on 2: State needs a real reserve

For all the publicity and hand-wringing about the volatility of the state’s income stream California has but two rainy reserve accounts — neither of which is particularly effective.
