The victory today is your victory. Where do we go from here? My guess is that we won't hear about a plan to repeal or replace anything for a long time. Whether a vote is coming up in the next few hours, the next few months, [...]

Get Smart – Jamie Wallace

It’s Spring Break, one or two glorious weeks to do nothing but catch up on sleep, assuming you do not have sadistic teachers. (I apologize in advance to teachers, but kids need a break.) Here’s a novel concept for high schoolers, go visit a college or two. College visits are free, which is a great place to start. Either go on an organized tour or just wander around by yourself.

Dear Editor – Support for Sanctuary

Dear Editor – Support for Sanctuary

Dear Editor, I am writing to ask you to support the motion to make Culver City a formal sanctuary city. It would be easy to say that we need to study this more, or that we need to be cautious, or that it won't make a difference. Those may all be true. But to me all the arguments come down this: We need to do the right thing for our neighbors. We as a city need to do the right thing for the [...]

Ruth’s Truths – Ruth Morris

Planes, Hotels and Automobiles -- The majority of my Ruth's Truths are travel related. I love writing while on my trips, or right after I get back from my sojourns. This time, I'm writing pre-trip; it's been a while since I had to plan details as carefully as I am right now for an upcoming trip to Cuba via the eastern seaboard's I-95 trail. I'm not the biggest domestic traveler, often [...]
