When fewer than 1 in 4 registered Los Angeles voters bothered to cast a ballot for a new mayor last year, it set off a round of soul-searching among city officials and political experts. Why were voters so disengaged? What would make them show up at the polls? What does it say about the...

Los Angeles County voters will see two judicial runoffs on their Nov. 4 ballot, and it's a shame they can't just pick the two best candidates of the four. That's because the two best are running against each other. Deputy Dist. Atty. Dayan Mathai is an accomplished prosecutor with 15 years of...
It was the hand-me-down from hell: a Kent State University sweatshirt, faded, hole-filled and splattered with red dye — or was that blood? — offered online by Urban Outfitters last weekend for $129.

Our famously gaffe-prone vice president, Joe Biden, has outdone himself. He stumbled through not one, not two, but three gaffes in less than 24 hours. For him, that's a personal best or, more accurately, a personal worst.

We mostly kept our pixels dark and our newsprint dry as Scotland's referendum on independence from the United Kingdom approached.

Do you use the same name when you’re at the corner of Rockville Pike and Old Georgetown Road? These questions are at the heart of a quiet debate raging underneath the White Flint Sector’s very public planning process. It’s finally coming to a head as plan implementation marches forward and the naming of this “place” has become more urgent. Read full article >>
