State Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) has introduced a bill to legalize Internet poker in California, but opponents are betting the controversial proposal won't be acted on in the coming three weeks before the Legislature adjourns for the year. Correa took a placeholder bill, SB 678, and amended it Monday to allow state-sanctioned online poker games for Californians to be operated by card clubs or Native American tribes that run casinos. “These amendments are the product of ongoing discussions with a broad coalition of California Indian gaming and non-gaming tribes who have participated in an inclusive and transparent process over the past several months,” Correa said in a statement.

QUITO, Ecuador - Ecuador's incumbent president, Rafael Correa, swept to an easy reelection victory Sunday, winning 58% of the vote according to a preliminary official sampling - an overwhelming margin that entitles him to a third term without having a runoff. The 49-year-old leftist economist easily outdistanced his closest finishers, banker Guillermo Lasso with 24%, former President Lucio Gutierrez with 6%, and banana exporter Alvaro Noboa with 4%, according to a snap count released by the national electoral commission.

SACRAMENTO - Imagine a lawmaker being allowed to read a proposed law before voting on it. For that matter - and this seems like a stretch - try to envision the public being offered an opportunity to express its view on a bill before legislators vote. Granted, this is a radical concept - at least during the final secretive, skulking days of a legislative session. We're talking usually late summer, although legislative sleight-of-hand can occur anytime, including the dead of winter.

Four large, recent canvases by Mario Correa, which he collectively dubs "The Muslins," are as much prints as they are paintings. Weirdly, they also add some photographic elements into the unexpected mix. At Redling Fine Art, one horizontal and three vertical canvases -- all unstretched and hanging loosely -- are held to the walls by simple nails pounded into the upper corners. That construction metaphor continues in the imagery, which is framed along the frayed muslin edges by straight-edge lines of ink that recall chalk snap-lines.

For much of Tuesday night, Chivas USA appeared to take its quarterfinal matchup in the U.S. Open Cup for what it was — a glorified exhibition game. Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy sat. Other key players joined him for long stretches. It was Chivas' fourth game in 10 days. Fatigue was bound to play a role. And early, it did. By halftime, Chivas had failed to capitalized on nine shots against the Charlotte Eagles of the USL Pro league — the third tier of the North American soccer pyramid.
