Gary Horton: Demand more from candidates

I met up with Lee Rogers for lunch last week at the Tournament Players Club restaurant in Valencia. The Democratic candidate running to replace Howard "Buck" McKeon in this year's election, Lee, many believe, is likely to be the new representative for our district.

Kevin Buck: Obama derangement syndrome

Is anyone else tired of the barrage of ad hominem attacks, conspiracy theories, ginned-up scandals and false equivalencies coming from the right side of the political spectrum?

Will Durst: It’s time to speak out against plastic bread
