I am amused at the crocodile tears flowing from the eyes of Democrats as a result of the reapportionment plan proposed by the court-appointed special masters. Their protestations are as absurd as cries of unfairness from a swindler being forced to disgorge his ill-gotten gains. Because of their gerrymander, Democrats were able to hold sizable and stable majorities in both houses of the state Legislature and in California's delegation to Congress throughout the 1980s. This, even as California was voting three times for a Republican President, three times for a Republican governor and sending Pete Wilson to the Senate twice by comfortable majorities while sending Alan Cranston back just barely.

John H. Rousselot, the former California congressman who once was an official of the ultra-conservative John Birch Society, said Friday that he hopes to make a political comeback by running for Congress in northern Los Angeles County. Since he lost a 1982 congressional reelection bid, Rousselot has worked as a Washington lobbyist and assistant to former President Ronald Reagan.

Former congressman John H. Rousselot, who is leading a bid to buy Lincoln Savings & Loan, was elected chairman and chief executive of the Irvine thrift on Tuesday. At the same time, Rousselot said he has renegotiated his purchase agreement with the S&L's parent firm. The new deal reduces the purchase price by $88 million to $200 million; removes four employees of Lincoln and its parent, American Continental Corp., from the investor group, and turns the deal more favorably toward Rousselot and Lincoln.

In an apparent violation of a longstanding House rule, former California congressman John H. Rousselot has spent much of last week on the House floor lobbying lawmakers on two controversial issues under active consideration on Capitol Hill. Rousselot, a lobbyist for the Bank of America, acknowledged in an interview that he has discussed a comprehensive banking measure with key members of the House Banking Committee, on which he formerly served.

American Continental Corp., the owner of Lincoln Savings & Loan Assn., filed for bankruptcy court protection from creditors Thursday, apparently killing a proposed sale of Lincoln and increasing the chances it will be seized by S&L regulators. Lincoln, based in Irvine, was not included in the bankruptcy filings, which included 11 other American Continental subsidiaries. But the parent company's action could trigger a legal battle between creditors and federal regulators over control of Lincoln's assets, according to regulatory officials and other sources.

Kenneth F. X. Albers, new chairman of the National Council of Savings Institutions, has announced formation of a blue-ribbon task force to develop pro-competitive, dereguation-oriented solutions to the savings industry's current problems.

Former U.S. Rep. John H. Rousselot agreed Wednesday to more changes in his bid to acquire Lincoln Savings & Loan, and predicted that regulators would approve the sale today. In a hand-delivered letter to the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, Rousselot agreed with bank board suggestions to give regulators the power to appoint the president and chief operating officer and four directors to the Irvine-based S&L. Rousselot said that he expects the three-member bank board to review his application today and approve the sale.
