So President Reagan has succeeded in getting Ginsburg to withdraw his name because Ginsburg occasionally smoked marijuana many years ago. By creating an inherently unsustainable prosperity, Reagan's years-long commitment to "voodoo economics" has left our nation "addicted" to continuing massive "fixes" of domestic and international debt. Does Reagan realize that "withdrawal" from this addiction to debt is likely to inflict economic distress on countless Americans that is far more painful than the temporary anguish now experienced by Ginsburg?

The Huntington Beach City Council race is a political sign maker's dream--21 candidates going after four open seats. "It has to be overwhelming for voters," said candidate Tom Mays. "About the best you can do is try to get your name known." Political signs are plastered throughout the city, from the San Diego Freeway to Pacific Coast Highway. "There's a war going on in Huntington Beach," said Jay Stout, another candidate. "It's a sign war. Your signs get torn down as fast as you can put them up."

At the dawn of a new snake season, hospitals are facing a temporary shortage of antivenin used to treat the swollen, blackened legs of hikers bitten by rattlers that have slithered out of their winter hibernation. The nation's longtime sole supplier of the antidote sent warnings to poison control centers around the country this week, saying it expects to be sold out until July. A sister company that makes a similar product for the veterinary market also released a shortage announcement.

An almost imperceptible change takes place along Beach Boulevard as it stretches south past the San Diego Freeway. From muffler shops, K mart stores and U-Haul lots, the scenery changes to professional buildings, lobster restaurants and a humongous sporting goods store covering nearly a city block. The landscape seems subtly more upscale here; the streets more hospitable and the shops more inviting.
