Philadelphia church official found guilty of sex-abuse coverup - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
And he testified that medical experts had advised him not to contact alleged victims because they would be unwilling to discuss details of sexual abuse.While arguing Friday for bail for Lynn, defense attorney Jeffrey M. Lindy told Judge M. Teresa Sarmina: "You can't seriously think that Msgr. Lynn, after being investigated after 10 years, is going to flee," the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.Assistant Dist. Atty. Patrick Blessington countered by telling the judge: "This is a case that is going to call for a tough jail sentence."Blessington added: "Let's start today. Today, to jail. That's justice."david.zucchino@latimes.com...

El Paso boxing match draws crowd despite fears of violence - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Mexican beer maker Tecate sponsored the event. Many fans said they felt safe, and no major problems were reported. “I know there’s a lot of security; it’s not a big deal,” spectator José Aguino told Fox News. The crowd at the stadium, which is about 500 yards from the border, included a good number of "Juarenses," Mexican residents of neighboring Ciudad Juarez who came to cheer for Chavez, a Sinaloa native and son of the legendary boxer. Enrique López, a UTEP commuter student, waved a Mexican flag with his friends in the stands. “He’s the son of a legend, Julio César Chávez.” López told Fox News. “I followed him since I was little.” In the end, Chavez fans were rewarded: He won the fight in the seventh round.    ...

Cudahy arrests add salt to LA County area's civic wounds - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Gonzalez said. "The problem with the system is power turns to greed." Just before Robles was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison in 2006, his attorney unveiled a novel defense strategy, arguing that what the politician had done was just business as usual. Dumbfounded, the judge replied: "What you have just said is among the most absurd things I have ever heard." Robles' reign over South Gate had been marked by allegations of death threats, punches thrown in council chambers and vicious campaign fliers. A bullet fired at Gonzalez bounced off the back of his head; the shooting has never been solved. The South Gate scandal also made national headlines and sparked cries for reform, but it didn't appear to put a scare into leaders in neighboring towns. Former Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, who was on the South Gate council then, believes the relative dearth of economic opportunities in the private sector in southeast L.A. County drove some ambitious people to pursue careers in local government. Most seem ethical, he said. But not all. "There's that saying: Why rob banks? Because that's where the money is," he said. "Well, why get into government? Because that's where the money is in some of these communities." De La Torre said the concept of public service is often a secondary consideration, if it is considered at all.

Watching the Cubs in Arizona - Canton Daily Ledger

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Randy Wells, Rodrigo Lopez and Casey Coleman have looked good too. At least they won't have to go to the Mexican League for starters this year.The bullpen is a little more intriguing. There is no Sean Marshall this year. Kerry Wood is professional as always. But Carlos Marmol leaves you scratching your head as a closer. And the question becomes, how do you get the ball to Kerry Wood in the eighth inning?HittingThis could be interesting. Will Soriano swing at every breaking ball thrown to him? Can Bryan LaHair handle playing a full season at the major league level? Is Starlin Castro another Soriano in waiting? Will Geovany Soto suffer from the sophomore slump that has afflicted him for the last three seasons? Will any of the Cubs take more than two pitches in an at bat? Will anyone on this team learn to bunt or hit behind a runner? These questions and many more will be answered in April. I can tell you one thing: I don't think that any player will be around long in Chicago if they don't perform and that is a difference from years past.DefenseThe Chicago Cubs were the worst team on defense in the major leagues in 2011. So they have to be better . . . . right? Well if it has anything to do with fundamental work then they should be. As long as the ball isn't hit to left field 27 times, things will improve. But will they improve enough? Probably not.Cub FansThe best tee-shirt I ever bought was in Cooperstown in 2006. It simply said on the front, "Chicago Cubs/ Any Team Can Have a Bad Century." Cub fans have a great sense of humor. And why not. We have heard every possible joke about our team that has ever been told.Cub fans are self-deprecating. They are always finding humor in the Cubs' failings and in their loyal support of those failings.But we have hoped for far too long.ConstantsThere are a few constants that most Cub fans in Mesa share. They are glad Theo and Jed  are running things. They are glad that Zambrano is gone. They hope that Soriano hits well so that some American League team will pick him up as a designated hitter. And they are willing to give the new regime a chance.New Kids on the BlockTony Campana is the darling of the fans. He hustles and that is something new to the Cub faithful. But unfortunately he can't steal first base and as long as he is hitting lazy fly balls to left field, he will be a pinch runner at best.Brett Jackson will soon be pressuring for a regular outfield spot. He has decent power and won’t be at AAA long.Anthony Rizzo was impressive at first base. He stayed late on a couple of practice days to take extra grounders. He has a good stick and is a solid defensive first baseman.Michael Vitters will be pushing from the minors for time at third base. He was the real reason not to sign Aramis Ramirez.There are a couple of kids that will probably start at AA this season.

Tiger Looks Like Tiger Again - Wall Street Journal (blog)

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Tiger’s old standards suddenly seem a little more fair with the Masters—and the possibility of a remarkable comeback—looming. “The handwringing and haranguing are over, and so is the longest winless slump of his career,” Steve Elling writes at CBS Sports. “Of course, the never-ending tale of the most scrutinized sports figure of modern times merely morphs into how far and how fast the former No. 1 can climb from here, doesn’t it?” * * * At the end of the NCAA tournament’s first weekend, college hoops fans were tasked—as per usual—with coming to terms with brackets that had been busted by upsets un-picked and mis-picked, teams under- and overrated. At the conclusion of the tournament’s second weekend, on the other hand, all looks strangely … familiar. Yes, the seemingly unbeatable juggernaut that is the University of Kentucky is the only number one seed to have made it to the Final Four. But the programs that will join the Wildcats in New Orleans—second-seeded Ohio State and Kansas and fourth-seeded Louisville, which will replay its annual rivalry game with UK for far higher stakes on Saturday—are hardly upstarts. There is no Virginia Commonwealth or George Mason or Butler, here. This year’s Final Four, it seems, is for big boys only. “The vibe is already different,” Sports Illustrated’s Luke Winn writes. “There is the sense that the tournament has been building up to this quartet, rather than winding down. That after so many buzzer-beaters gone wrong, so many games bogged down by painful officiating, we are due for a few epics.” At the very least, we’ll get a pair of rematches in the short term—Kansas and Ohio State played earlier this year while the Buckeyes were without star forward Jared Sullinger, and the Jayhawks rolled. That’s something that tends to happen for the Buckeyes, who depend a great deal on their frontcourt centerpiece. Kentucky and Louisville play each other every year, but this is the first time the in-state rivals have met in the Final Four. Louisville hung with the ‘Cats earlier this season before falling to them like almost everyone else did. Things don’t get any easier now. This remains a super-motivated Wildcats team led ...

Enjoying a great spring break - Jacksonville Daily News

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
There are lots of young, strong bodies here for spring break having a great time. The locals avoid Front Beach Road during this time. On Tuesday, Panama City Beach broke the Guinness world record for the largest bikini parade with 450 women walking a mile in their bikinis for the historic cause. I thought it was a little cool for bikinis but these were brave, committed women. The women snatched the title from Surfers Paradise Beach in Australia that only had 357 women in bikinis, according to the local paper, the News Herald. We were in Chick-Fil-A Tuesday evening having dinner, when two groups came in for dinner. They sang dueling fight songs from their respective colleges with the same gusto as seen at ball games. No one seemed to mind; we just enjoyed the revelry. Groups of Christian college students and their supporters come from all over and pay their own way to participate in Beach Reach, a project where the students provide pancakes in the morning, messages of faith anytime, and rides in the evenings by calling a publicized number. The mission of the project is to keep the spring breakers fed, safe and hopefully to change their life. I was telling my daughter Britainy how much the granddaughters and I enjoyed watching the spring break activities. “You never would let me go to spring break,” she reminded me. Heck no. It is one thing to enjoy the festivities but another to send your own daughter into the fray. Like Beach Reach, I wanted her safe and sound. I didn’t want a silly decision made during spring break to forever change her life. She is a brave and committed woman but she just had to miss out on making history by participating in the largest bikini parade in the world. I have read the News Herald from cover to cover since I have been here and have really enjoyed the newspaper and having the time to read it. The News Herald is owned by Freedom Communications like The Daily News. I don’t know the editorial staff but they publish just what I like to read, a story about three children in Charlotte that were carrie...

Andrew Breitbart, barrier-busting media critic - Washington Post (blog)

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
Breitbart’s insistence on fashioning his own rules served as an “inspiration” to him. And he shares the take on Zernike: “She’s a despicable human being,” says Mattera, arguing that he took his speech and created a “false narrative” around it. “I’m more ethnic than that broad any day.” (Zernike counters that Mattera has never met her and knows “to the best of my knowledge, nothing of my background or heritage.”) In his CPAC address, Breitbart also attacked reporter Carol Leonnig of The Washington Post, complete with a reenactment of a phone conversation. ”When we basically forced them to acknowledge the [ACORN] story existed, Carol Leonnig [of the Washington Post] called me up and I said to her, I said, ‘I’m interviewing you too because I don’t trust you,’” said Breitbart. Ad hominem attacks on members of storied media companies — that’s not your Washington establishment school of right-wing media slamming. Broad, angry and impersonal quips are the standbys of this kinder, gentler approach, as executed routinely on the campaign trail by Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. He’s always good for a crowd-pleasing reference to the ills of the “elite media.” One elite media member denies Breitbart’s allegations. “I can’t remember if I was in the ballroom at CPAC when he said it — I think maybe I had stepped into the hallway when it actually happened,” writes Zernike via e-mail. “But needless to say, I’d disagree with his assertion that I’m the most despicable person alive, or whatever it was he said.” And Leonnig suggests that the mainstream media serves more than one purpose for a guy like Breitbart: “Like the happy warrior he was, Andrew emphasized what he wanted to emphasize about our conversation to try to show a liberal mainstream media at work. In reporting, you get used to that. Later, his website enjoyed a real heyday with the exclusive reporting that I and my partner Joe Stephens did on the Obama administration’s flawed decisions in funding solar startup Solyndra.” Leonnig also notes: “To his credit, he never declined an interview.” The Internet bears testament to the guy’s media-friendliness. Though he died far too young, he claimed a lifetime’s share of bandwidth. If there was a camera available, there was Breitbart, taking all questions and free-associating himself into monologue territory. Jeremy Peters of the New York Times reported that he “passes along his personal e-mail address to almost anyone who asks.” His frequent appearances on cable...

Ulric Neisser, Who Reshaped Thinking on the Mind, Dies at 83

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
His contrariness extended to his own work. In 1976, he wrote “Cognition and Reality,” a book that challenged much of the field of cognitive psychology, arguing that it ignored the real world in favor of the laboratory. Dr. Neisser earned an undergraduate degree in psychology from Harvard, a master’s degree from Swarthmore College and a doctorate from Harvard. He went on to teach and do research at Brandeis, Cornell and Emory College. His marriage to Anna Gabrielle Peirce ended in divorce. His second wife, Arden Seidler, died before him. Besides his son Mark, he is survived by three other children from his first marriage, Philip, Tobias and Juliet Neisser; a son, Joseph, from his second marriage; a stepdaughter...
