The so-called ag-gag bill winding its way through the California Assembly has been pulled by its author, Jim Patterson, a Republican from Fresno. Smart move. The bill, AB 343, would have required anyone who videotapes, photographs or records incidents of animal cruelty to turn over the evidence to authorities within 48 hours  or be charged with an infraction of the law. Patterson said the bill, which was sponsored by the California Cattlemen's Assn., a nonprofit trade group representing ranchers and beef producers, was an attempt to bring abuse to light as soon as possible.

From an old turkey shed where Dust Bowl migrants once talked in tongues, the Peoples Church has evolved into a powerful institution in the Central Valley. Its 5,000-member congregation, the biggest in this farming heartland, boasts among its members the sheriff, the undersheriff, city councilmen and, if Pastor G. L. Johnson has his way, the next mayor of Fresno. "Let's congratulate Jim Patterson, one of our fine members," an exultant Johnson said from his pulpit one recent Sunday.

The first mayor of this freewheeling farm town was a pimp who held office for 10 minutes. Mayor No. 2, an undertaker, never found favor, either. He was succeeded by a millionaire who sold lead-lined coffins and was chased out of town in midterm by an angry mob of Presbyterians. All through its colorful 100-year history, Fresno has shown a wonderful weakness for the offbeat.
