As a surgeon, Larry McCarthy has seen the carnage of the city flow through emergency rooms--gaping gunshot wounds and the awful traumas of freeway accidents. In Vietnam, he treated terrible war wounds as a company medic. And the North County plastic surgeon has ministered to his share of the needy--performing free operations for Mexico's downtrodden and disfigured.

When Larry McCarthy worked for Pete Wilson's victorious California gubernatorial campaign in 1990, no one seemed to care that he had produced the controversial Willie Horton commercial that helped defeat Democratic presidential nominee Michael S. Dukakis in 1988. "It was very occasionally mentioned in the press, but it was no big deal," McCarthy said.

Opportunity is at hand, even as California is confronted with a fourth straight year of multibillion-dollar budget imbalance. It is a great chance to junk an outdated, failed system of public finance and develop a new state spending plan. Instead of the old caseload-plus-inflation method of budgeting, California should look beyond the obvious need to set priorities. It's time to change course. USC Professors John Kirlin and Jeffrey Chapman call it productivity budgeting.

It is utterly absurd to charge that California Taxpayers' Assn. opposition to Proposition 9 was "bought" by its three electric utility members (Harvey Rosenfield's Oct. 12 commentary). Unable to defend his poorly written initiative on its merits, he has been attacking his opponents. Throwing mud at the wall is a sure sign of desperation. Cal-Tax's 90-member board of directors represents a cross-section of California business and industry, from agriculture and retailers to high-tech manufacturers and financial institutions.
OPINION
December 5, 2004
The Nov. 29 editorial calling for new taxes to balance the upcoming state budget is the kind of superficial analysis that has delivered this state to a position of near financial collapse and that is hindering our ability to chart a vibrant economic future for its citizens. To argue that taxes must be raised to support a more than 12% increase in state spending only validates the blatant mismanagement of state finances that delivered this mess to the doorstep of taxpayers in the first place.

Federal officials have closed an investigation of the 1988 election's notorious Willie Horton political ad without resolving whether there was improper coordination between the Bush campaign team and the ad's sponsors. The Federal Election Commission split, 3 to 3, along party lines on whether to close the case, which involved a supposedly independent group called the National Security Political Action Committee and an ad that became known as a symbol of racial politics.

Contrary to what Lenny Goldberg's commentary in The Times ("Bamboozled by Business Tax Breaks," June 2,) implied, tax incentives designed to attract new businesses and to retain existing businesses are an integral part of a state's overall economic plan. Surveys or studies cited by Goldberg are misleading and manipulated to understate California's tax burden. For example, they do not see total costs of doing business in California (such as the explosion of local taxes and fees)

Opponents of Proposition 9, an initiative that would reduce electric rates, are airing a 30-second television ad featuring Ed Texeira, the retired director of the California Public Utilities Commission's office of ratepayer advocates. The spot is similar to other "No on 9" ads, which featured Thomas Hayes, former state treasurer and now a Sacramento consultant, and Larry McCarthy, president of the California Taxpayers' Assn., which lobbies on behalf of corporate clients.
