  • Tolerating Intolerance

    By  David A. Lehrer

    March 31, 2010 | 2:14 pm

    Twenty five years ago, I wrote an op/ed in the Los Angeles Times about the failure of a political leader to speak up unequivocally in the face of bigotry and hate; I do the same today with virtually the same message.

    The political leader is different and placement on the political... read on

  • A Mistaken Position

    By  David A. Lehrer

    March 24, 2010 | 4:47 pm

    Sheriff Lee Baca is a friend. We have known him for decades, long before he was elected sheriff we worked with him as he dedicated himself to improving inter-group relations in Los Angeles County. We don’t doubt his commitment, sincerity and genuineness in seeking to reach out to... read on

    By  David A. Lehrer

    March 11, 2010 | 12:15 pm

    An often heard complaint about the broadcast media is that important subjects are dealt with in a cursory and superficial way. Profound subjects are packaged in 90 second segments and the various advocates of differing positions are given a few precious seconds to make what are often... read on

    One reported on the state-wide “Day of Action” by students, faculty and parents protesting cuts in education funding in California. The second article detailed... read on

  • Passe Protest Politics

    By  Joe R. Hicks

    March 5, 2010 | 4:51 pm

    Yesterday, in what’s been called a “Day of Action,” groups of students, teachers, and their allies staged walk-outs, sit-ins and demonstrations across California.  In Oakland, protesters marched onto and shut down an Interstate freeway.  Activists at UCLA occupied... read on

  • Demeaning History

    By  David A. Lehrer

    March 4, 2010 | 4:56 pm

    Exploiting the Holocaust and what led to it is reprehensible. It cheapens the tragedy and demeans its meaning and import.
