from LA Progressive:

by Lawrence S. Wittner

   Democratic socialism used to be a vibrant force in American life. During the first two decades of the 20th century, the Socialist Party of America, headed by the charismatic union leader, Eugene V.

Traffic Lights and Other Plights on North Figueroa

by LA1 News

   It was a pleasant day of 78 degrees when LA1 News set out to cover the story yesterday. The sun was bright in Highland Park and energy was in the air, apparently. As we turned the corner at Avenue 55 and Figueroa Street, DOT workers were scattered in among a throng of city suits with lots of hair gel. Traveling northbound on Avenue 55, we pulled over to park just before Monte Vista Street. Highland Park Post #206 former commander and Vietnam veteran Larry Wible came walking out. He was alongside Helen Weston of Northside Inn, Richard’s Hofbraü and Mr. T’s bartending fame.

Although described initially as green by would-be detractors, she evolved to balance the tightrope between being a public face to the Cedillo's controversial agendas and the loyal deputy she was hired to be for him.
