It's time to privatize education
Though the federal "No Child Left Behind" program is a worthy effort to improve our education system, the nation's report card is riddled with mixed results and little to no progress. However, there are deeply entrenched historical reasons for the difficulties experienced by students, teachers, parents and the education establishment in general, which cannot be easily overcome or corrected.
Re: American Caesar: Nero Fiddled While Rome Burned
by Rosa Brooks
L.A. Times commentary September3, 2005
Who is Rosa Brooks?
Rosa Brooks' "American Caesar," comparing President Bush and the hurricane disaster in New Orleans to Emperor Nero's burning of Rome, is undoubtedly one of the most shallow commentaries the L.A. Times has recently published.
Cindy Sheehan, Bush and Iraq
The left-elite news media are not interested in Cindy Sheehan as the grieving mother of a son killed in Iraq who has been wronged by the evil Bush administration ("Vacaville speaks," Inside Politics, Nation, Wednesday).

ABOUT CALIFORNIA'S INITIATIVE PROCESS

Re: "Ways to Reform the Initiative Process" by Michael Hiltzik (Golden State) Los Angeles Times C-1 July 28, 2005
Too much government, media and activism, and not enough democracy
Two corrupt mayors caused a second election in less than nine months and exacerbated costly and inept city government in San Diego. A partisan attorney general ignores the California Constitution and tampers with the marriage and re-districting voter initiatives.
Petition the Supreme Court: maybe it's time for concerned citizens to step in, take on the two-party system, and test the constitutional veracity of the Supreme Court before it's too late...
THREAT IN VENEZUELA
While we have our eyes on the Middle East and the recent good news out of there, a danger to democracy is brewing right here in our backyard. Venezuela, long one of Latin America's strongest democracies, is now under siege by its president, Hugo Chavez.

The Legacy of a Historic Supreme Court Justice
Before the ink dried on Sandra Day O'Connor's resignation, political adversaries fired the first shots of what will undoubtedly be an unprecedented, uncivilized war over President Bush's nominee to replace her ("O'Connor's Odyssey," July 11).

How to help Africa
Rock concerts and President Bush's proposed $1.2 billion plan to fight malaria in Africa over the next five years are almost meaningless, not because the money is sure to be misspent, but because there has been, is and will be only one way to really combat and control the mosquito-borne killer: with DDT ("Live 8 concerts rock the globe for Africa," Page 1, Sunday).

L.A.Time Editorial Page Editor Commended
Andres Martinez was appointed Los Angeles Times Editorial Page Editor in September 2004. His commentary, "Filibuster Doubletalk" is important, worth reading, and a welcome, objective departure from the left-leaning op-ed pages of the newspaper.
By Andres Martinez, editor of the editorial page
Los Angeles Times April 6, 2005
...The filibuster goes too far in upsetting the balance struck by the Constitution and empowering an obstructionist minority. Surely the founders didn't intend for the Senate's "advice and consent" review of presidential nominees to require a supermajority.
