Thinking History: Ruiz Cemetery tells tragic story of dam disaster

I downloaded the directions and climbed in the car. Soon, I found myself 2.1 miles north of the intersection of Copper Hill and San Francisquito Canyon in Saugus. I had a picture of the site and it matched what I was seeing. Towards the west in the distance was the clump of trees I was aiming for, and if I squinted just right I could make out a white marker underneath. This was the place.

Abusing majority rule

Philosophically, Democrats have embraced the protection of minorities. This is something that Carole Lutness ("Majority rules in a democracy," Oct. 13) seemingly has overlooked. She laments the fact a simple majority in Sacramento's legislature cannot increase taxes; it takes a two-thirds majority. She advocates a simple majority rule and then claims she speaks for all of us. She doesn't speak for me.
