What about Football in the City of Industry? Governor Brown and the legislature have accelerated the environmental process for Farmers' Field in downtown LA. Only two out of 15 city council members have any reservations at all. But the NFL still may like another site better -- in the City of Industry, on 600 empty acres, where the 57 and 60 freeways meet. Billionaire Ed Roski and Majestic Realty's Los Angeles Stadium Project could get the nod over Philip Anshutz and AEG.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake.

Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
What happens when America retreats from the world?
