    What to do for little Charlie Gard: Charles Krauthammer

    One cannot imagine a more wrenching moral dilemma than the case of little Charlie Gard. He is a beautiful 11-month-old boy with an incurable genetic disease. It depletes his cells’ energy-producing structures (the mitochondria), thereby progressively ravaging his organs. He cannot hear, he cannot see, he can barely open his eyes. He cannot swallow, he cannot move, he cannot breathe on his own. He suffers from severe epilepsy and his brain is seriously damaged. Doctors aren’t...

    Revitalizing L.A. River takes a community: Guest commentary

    The Los Angeles River symbolizes all the potential of our great city and region. For many years, local residents, city leaders, environmentalists, urban planners, developers and land owners have sought to unlock its potential. The promise of revitalizing the river in a holistic, sustainable way is completely achievable — if, that is, we recognize a few complicating factors. First, all vested parties must understand and accept that the scope of the river’s potential is...

    Metro electric buses could deliver for workers as well as environment: Guest commentary

    The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has been a leader in advancing clean-air solutions for public transportation dating back to the early 1990s, when it became the largest transit agency in the country to transition from diesel to natural gas buses.

    Will Metro Bike Share roll with Pasadena’s punches?: Larry Wilson

    I enjoyed my free bicycle ride around the block at last Friday’s Metro Bike Share kickoff at Pasadena City Hall. Yes, the bike itself was the definition of a clunker, the heaviest I’ve ever ridden.

    We must protect children at schools from dangerous sex offenders: Connie Leyva

    Just last year, a group of concerned Fontana parents discovered a loophole in the law that allows dangerous sex offenders to enter school grounds and target children. They found out that dangerous sex offenders could volunteer at schools if they were given permission by a school official. In response, the Fontana Unified School District Board of Education voted unanimously to ban sex offenders — who were convicted in a court of law — from school grounds, unless required...

    Skepticism might be best response to N. Korea ‘crisis’: Commentary

    “But we have to do something, don’t we?” This is the most repeated trope not only in American history but in the history of every great power. While my generation, of the 1960s, wanted to give peace a chance, history pushes us to give war a chance. After all, we can’t let “mad men” get away with threatening us or killing their own people. It’s amazing how many of our adversaries develop diagnosable psychiatric disorders. Muammar...
