It's not a typo: The South Central L.A. Tea Party exists, and Jesse Lee Peterson takes a bow for founding it. He's also president and founder of the 23-year-old black bootstraps group Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, or BOND, and serves as pastor for a nondenominational congregation at its headquarters. As his public pronouncements make clear, he detests Planned Parenthood and legal abortion, welfare and the California-born black holiday Kwanzaa. He used to hold a "national day of repudiation" against Jesse Jackson; he has his doubts about women in high places.

"Partner Benefits for Gay UC Staff Advance" (Nov. 21) gives the impression that there was no opposition to the speakers who endorsed the plan to give health benefits to the same-sex partners of UC employees. At least two dozen public speakers were heard from, every one of whom spoke for the proposal. I was part of a contingent that vociferously booed speakers who came to the microphone and backed the plan (after they finished their presentation). Regents Chairwoman Meredith Khachigian cut off additional public comments after one hour.

Jesse Lee Peterson hit all the right (or wrong) buttons: Gays aren't born that way, most African Americans hate whites, and President Obama is the worst thing to happen to this country. In his interview with Patt Morrison published Wednesday, the South L.A. tea party activist also had harsh words for civil rights activists and called the Democratic Party platform "anti-God" and "anti-anything that's good. " To say the reader reaction (about two dozen of you sent letters) was mixed would be an understatement; starkly polarized would be more accurate.

Good news, sports fans: Baseball is about to get even more boring. On Thursday, Commissioner Bud Selig announced that Major League Baseball plans to expand the use of instant replay, allowing managers to challenge virtually any umpire's call aside from balls and strikes. In other words, add instant replay to the list of time-wasters that have slowed the modern game to a crawl: Pitchers who treat every pitch like it's the most important ever thrown; batters who can't bat without stepping out of the box, adjusting batting gloves, spitting, scratching, digging in, and then doing it all again before the next pitch; catchers who can't give signs without getting them first from the manager; and the endless parade of relief pitchers, all of whom need to warm up on the mound, despite the fact they've already warmed up in the bullpen.

A week after President Obama tried to calm the controversy over the NSA's electronic surveillance by promising more transparency, the Washington Post has revealed that the agency has “broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times.” The report was based on an internal audit supplied by Edward Snowden that showed that, from April 2011 to May 2012, there were 2,776 incidents, apparently ranging from the illegal “querying”...

Will success spoil San Francisco? Or, is too much of a good thing a bad thing? Seems the tech boom that is fueling the Bay Area's economy is also creating a San Andreas-like “let them eat cake” fault line in Baghdad by the Bay, pitting Silicon Valley's nouveau riche against, well, S.F.'s nouveau poor. As Times reporter Jessica Guynn wrote Wednesday: Fueling the growing rift is a common belief that the vast wealth being amassed by the tech industry is not spilling over into the community.

The Glendale City Council has indicated that it will ban gun shows. Before Tuesday night's decision, the attorney for the operator of the Glendale Gun Show threatened legal action. "This ordinance, in the way it's drafted … will necessarily require litigation," Sean Brady said to council members and the roughly 140 people packed inside City Hall. No vote was taken Tuesday night but a majority of the council expressed strong support. The ordinance will return to the council next week for a final vote.
