The anticipated departure of Sen. Joseph B. Montoya from the Legislature has dealt a severe setback to a bill he favored that would impose a 15-day waiting period on the purchase of sporting rifles and shotguns. Supporters of the bill had counted heavily on the Whittier Democrat to cast a crucial vote in favor of the legislation so it could finally win passage by the Senate. He had voted for the legislation earlier.

I was indeed fascinated to learn that the "mainline biblical scholars" of the Jesus Seminar have, in their decidedly finite wisdom, concluded that 80% of the New Testament quotes attributed to Jesus were not in fact his words at all. He was, in their estimation, a "prophet-sage who told parables and made pithy comments." I guess if Jesus hadn't been so busy changing the course of human history he might have made a great talk-show host, or perhaps he could have started a greeting card company.

The state's tax on alcoholic beverages, which has not been increased for decades, will skyrocket under a "nickel-a-drink" initiative unveiled Thursday by a coalition of alcohol treatment, trauma care and law enforcement groups.

Although meant to keep firearms away from those who are considered dangerous to themselves or to society, the practice also applies to psychiatric patients who voluntarily check themselves in for treatment and have no history of violent behavior.

The Assembly voted Monday to once again pay local government boards for posting their agendas 72 hours before regular meetings. Last summer's budget compromise deleted that state payment, and courts have ruled that local governments cannot be required by the state to do something unless the state also pays the costs.
