Actually, there is a clear link between mass shootings and mental illness

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:15:00 PST

“Repeat after me: Mass shooters are not disproportionately mentally ill.”

This is the opening line of a meme that’s been circulating in the aftermath of the shooting in Parkland, Fla.

But this and other efforts to downplay the role of mental illness in mass shootings are simply misleading. There...

45 days is too long for the LAPD to wait to release police videos to the public

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:10:00 PST

A proposal to publicly release video of Los Angeles police shootings and other serious uses of force within 45 days is still too restrictive — but it represents a welcome departure from the existing practice of never releasing their video.

How Olympian Shani Davis closes the gap between blackness and Americanness

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:10:00 PST

Now that we’re almost at the end of it, I can confess that I was dreading February and Black History Month.

The problem with Happy Meals isn't the food

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:05:00 PST

It’s not about the food. What McDonald’s is really selling to children is the party. The package with puzzles just for them. The games. In some places, the playgrounds. And most of all, the toys.

The fast-food giant must be basking in its latest public-relations victory. By announcing last week...

Cleaner trucks are good. A higher sales tax to pay for private companies to get them isn't.

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:05:00 PST

Yes, liberals, you will govern again one day, so stop losing friends over Trump

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:00:00 PST

To the editor: Ron Berler’s Feb. 18 op-ed article, “Can social psychologists explain why Trump is ruining my friendship?” is a typical far-left rant against those who have a different perspective on life. A disagreement with a friend over President Trump’s actions left the writer feeling “morally...

After 'Black Panther' and 'The Last Jedi,' is this the era of the artisanal blockbuster?

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:00:00 PST

The supersized success of “Black Panther” didn’t just smash assumptions about what superheroes are allowed to look like, it has also proved that the best franchise films put the emphasis on the film, rather than the franchise. Following on the heels of Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,”...

Poland's new law on Nazi atrocities is based on a lie, says a Holocaust surivor

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:00:00 PST

California has strict rules for political robocalls — and they're routinely ignored

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 03:00:00 PST

A federal district court judge ruled the other day that it’s constitutional for Montana to ban political robocalls, even though political consultants who had sued the state claimed their right to free speech had been violated.
