Beyond his calls for water rationing and expressions of concern over expensive junkets, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley's new-found interest in the city's Department of Water and Power encompasses a more expansive agenda: He wants to rein in the sprawling agency and fundamentally alter its course. For decades, the huge DWP has gone about its business of procuring water and creating power like a private company, and by that measure it has done quite well.

A gasoline additive that may cause cancer has had far less impact on the state's drinking-water supply than expected, and replacing it will drive gasoline prices up to $1 billion more than Gov. Gray Davis expected when he banned it, according to a California Energy Commission analyst. Still, analyst Gordon Schremp and other state officials said they support Davis' decision to phase out MTBE, or methyl tertiary-butyl ether, by the end of 2003. "MTBE needs to go. Period," said William L.

About 60 protesters confronted the operator of Rochester House in Los Angeles on Friday about the 20 registered sex offenders living there. The protesters, chanting as they marched a short way to the sober-living residence, were met by Edmund Anderson, who had set up a stage with microphones in the driveway, hoping to have a dialogue. He already was in the process of finding other locations for the offenders, he told the crowd. "I am phasing them out, and I am relocating them," Anderson said.

MEXICO CITY - A highly touted system to protect Mexican reporters working in one of the world's most dangerous countries for journalists is failing miserably and may in fact further imperil those it is intended to help, media advocates say. In the first year of the administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto, killings of journalists declined significantly but other attacks multiplied, organizations that work on behalf of reporters said....

Eight years after the start of the war in Afghanistan, President Obama faces a decision about what to do in that troubled part of the world. It's a crushingly urgent moment for the young president and also the national media, still chagrined about the failure to more rigorously study claims that Iraq had to be attacked because of its stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.
