RECENTLY, Tom Hayden was animated. Excited, yes, but literally animated -- a computer-generated representation in the 2007 film "Chicago 10." That figurative portrayal of the 1960s' most explosive trial depicted the through-the-looking-glass realities of a time when America's basic assumptions were up for grabs. Who was more moral: a bomb-dropping president or an indicted demonstrator? What should be illegal: racism or pot smoking?

If anyone has concerns over Garden Grove Councilman Mark Leyes' newfound conservatism, it's not the California Republican Assembly. The hard-right group, which is the state's oldest and largest GOP volunteer organization, recently endorsed Leyes on the first ballot in his run for 1st District county supervisor March 26.
