The state Legislature can strike a modest, reasonable blow against global warming by passing the final version of a program for cutting emissions of carbon dioxide from autos, pickups and sport utility vehicles. Carbon dioxide is the chief greenhouse gas implicated in global warming. AB 1058, by Assemblywoman Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills), passed the Assembly earlier and won approval in the Senate last week. Now it's back to the Assembly for ratification of Senate amendments as early as today.

HP shares fell $1.08, or 3.2%, to $33 in extended trading, after closing down 26 cents at $34.08 during the regular session before the Palo Alto company reported its earnings.

The joke, at long last, is on the Onion. The nation's preeminent fake news source, not invulnerable to the economic insecurity that has brought cutbacks and layoffs to newspapers nationwide, announced Friday it would end its print edition by the end of the year. At its peak, the print publication of the news-satire organization was distributed free in 17 cities nationwide. But years of hard times led the publication gradually to cut back on its distribution, with the Los Angeles edition ending in 2009.

LeSean McCoy was drafted in the second round, 53rd overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. A year later Tim Tebow was drafted in the first round, 25th overall by the Denver Broncos. But McCoy has gone on to become a star, leading the NFL in rushing last season, while Tebow couldn't even find a team to play for in 2012. Still, McCoy's recent assessment of the former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time NCAA champion seemed a tad harsh. "My son is 2," McCoy told TMZ at LAX on Saturday night.
