Mario Solis-Marich guest hosting on KTLK 1150, 9 a.m. to noon.
Sharon Kyle: Do citizens have a right to monitor the behavior of law enforcement? What about citizen journalists? The case of citizen Joseph “Jazz” Hayden may be one of police retaliation. What do you think?
We need an experienced ad salesperson to sell advertising space on our two websites. We expect to pay a healthy commission for sales that would principally involve online and phone work.
Tom Degan: Does he really believe that he will be able to pull a fast one on history? That the ages will view him much in the same way Roosevelt and Churchill are viewed today. Yeah, he probably does. The only thing monumental about this homicidal twit is his arrogance.
It’s happening again! I’m getting a slew of emails from friends because they don’t have a clue who they should vote for in the upcoming California Democratic Party Delegate election.

As we reported during our workshop at Occidental College, our first-year goal was to create this online magazine or e-zine , recruit provocative writers, and develop an audience. Now that we’ve begun our second year of operation, our aim now is to improve both the content and presentation of this e-zine, use our newfound “political […]
