Goodwin, assistant special counsel to President Kennedy, was correct in his recitation of America's problems but wrong about the cause. The decline started with the massive intrusion of government into personal lives and business, with the New Deal programs of the '30s. The decline accelerated with the Great Society programs of the '60s, and the nihilism and weakening of national will during the Vietnam fiasco. This nation was built on the initiative, pride and freedom of the individual, fused into a national purpose and identity unsurpassed in human history.

"The Goodwin Games" is family comedy debuting as a late midseason replacement with only a seven-episode order. So even at Fox, a network not known for hit comedies, hopes are not high. On the other hand, there is a lot of talk these days of rethinking the old models of American television, including making the standard network season (22 to 24 episodes) more like the cable model of 10 to 12. At this year's upfronts, where networks roll out their new fall lineups for advertisers in New York City, Fox discussed several "limited" or "event" series.

President Obama will nominate UC Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, The Times has learned. Liu carries credentials that some conservatives love to hate -- including a leadership position in a progressive legal group and a record of opposing the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. But he has conservative admirers too. Liu has supported school choice as a solution to...

In 1970 a man with terminal bone cancer came to see Dr. Peter Goodwin, who practiced family medicine in Portland, Ore. The man had intractable pain and saw no point in prolonging his suffering. He pleaded with Goodwin for pills to end his life. His request plunged the doctor into an ethical wilderness. If Goodwin granted the man's request, he knew he could face felony manslaughter charges. If he refused, he was turning his back on a dying man. "It was as if somebody was presenting themselves to me with a disease that I had never heard of, and no resources existed which could help me make my decision," Goodwin, recalling the dilemma, told the Anchorage Daily News in 1995.

Another Massachusetts bleeding heart heard from, again, on El Salvador! I refer, of course, to Goodwin. "Naturally" it's the fault of the United States that El Salvador and Nicaragua and Panama and Cuba, ad infinitum, are the way they are. Goodwin fails to mention the fact that when the election in El Salvador was called, the guerrillas decided it was crooked (they knew they couldn't get the people to support them so they denounced the...

I must say that Friday the 13th is a most suitable day to publish such a dreadful treatise as Goodwin's column. The first thing Goodwin does, is raise the specter of a man (Robert F. Kennedy) who, though long dead, epitomized the radical leanings of the furthest left, as the President does the ultra-conservative right. Unfortunately, Goodwin doesn't appear to take into account the fact that the majority of the American people approve of Reagan's policy. Further, Goodwin should consider that the "Better Red Than Dead" generation of the 1960s appears to have embraced a more conservative outlook in concert with Reagan's ideas, or the election of 1984 would have given Reagan the same ticket to ignominy we gave to Jimmy Carter in 1980.

Among a fleet of documentaries launched on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy comes "Killing Kennedy," a dramatic take with Rob Lowe as the president and Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald. Premiering Sunday on National Geographic Channel, it's based on a book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, one in a told-in-present-tense series that also includes "Killing Lincoln," already made into a National Geographic TV movie, and "Killing Jesus" - literary docudramas, if you will.

History, as we all know, is framed by events. But it also grows from relationships, both personal and political, and is framed by how the actions of particular players in specific circumstances set the course for the future. In her sweeping new history, "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism," Doris Kearns Goodwin focuses on the relationships among Roosevelt, Taft and those pesky muckraking journalists and how their individual behaviors influenced not only one another but also the nation.

DreamWorks is heading back to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. A year after Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" became a box office hit and award-season favorite, the filmmaker's DreamWorks Studios has announced plans to make another presidential drama -- and based on the work of the same author who helped make "Lincoln" possible. The studio has acquired the rights to historian Doris Kearns Goodwin's upcoming book "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism," which is set for publication Nov. 5. Kearns also wrote 2005's "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln," which became the basis for Tony Kushner's "Lincoln" script.

SAN FRANCISCO - Goodwin Liu was tired and disappointed. The law professor had returned from Washington the night before, having lost his bruising 16-month battle to win Senate confirmation for a federal appeals court seat. Conservative Republicans had tarred the Obama nominee as a liberal activist, and all of Liu's efforts to dispel the label had failed. He had his key in the door to his office at UC Berkeley's law school when the telephone rang. An aide to Gov. Jerry Brown wanted to know if he would be interested in the California Supreme Court.
