In the West Wing it had become a pretty common sight: two national security aides with close ties to the president, Thomas Donilon and Denis McDonough, hurrying into the Oval Office to show him the latest piece of hot intelligence. Some administration officials who watched the scene unfold worried that James L.

When Robert H. Furey Jr. ran for Los Angeles municipal judge two years ago, the voters lacked an important piece of information about him. Furey, a Catalina Justice Court judge, had been under investigation by the state Commission on Judicial Performance for 22 months for misconduct, including the repeated jailing of a woman who had filed a complaint about him. Furey lost the election, and eight days later the commission recommended to the state Supreme Court that he be removed from the bench.

I was driven to find Gwendolyn Brooks' 1953 novel "Maud Martha" because it was said to be the first piece of literature in which a dark-skinned black woman was allowed a rich interior life. I was working at the time on my University of Detroit dissertation and searching for black women fiction writers for my first collection of stories, "Black-Eyed Susans."
