The Bush administration is considering Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury as one of several candidates for U. S. attorney in Los Angeles. Bradbury, a 59-year-old Republican, said this week that he is flattered that he has been mentioned as a candidate for top federal attorney in the Central District, which stretches from Orange County to San Luis Obispo.

Sam Hall Kaplan reported and appeared to support (May 4) the "lemon" award presented by the Downtown Breakfast Club to Eugene Sturman's sculpture in the forecourt of the new International Tower at 9th and Figueroa streets. As members of the professional jury impaneled by the Community Redevelopment Agency to recommend the selection of this public artwork, we deplore the lack of imagination and understanding demonstrated by the members of the club, and are especially disappointed by Kaplan's failure to rise to the defense of this exciting and evocative addition to our urban landscape.
