The Los Angeles Police Commission has voted to end its contract with a vendor that supplies red-light photo-enforcement cameras used at a number of the City’s major intersections. L.A. is the country’s 2nd-largest city. If this had occurred in some little burg in Montana or Maine, it would not have nearly the same significance. This is a big deal!

A recent (April 2011) “letter to the editor” of one of the local “City” papers raised an interesting question about how we (the collective “we”) view the responsibility to follow the rules regarding voting in our nation. This writer made it clear that he considers any move to establish or enforce a few basic rules to ensure the integrity of our electoral process amounts to “disenfranchisement.” I think he, and those who view this issue as he does, are solidly wrong.
