One of the first serious issue debates of the 1992 U.S. Senate campaigns in California has a peculiar twist. Wherever conservative Republican Bruce Herschensohn goes to promote his flat-tax plan, his moderate GOP opponent, Rep. Tom Campbell, tries to show up right on his heels--to promote Herschensohn's flat-tax plan. Candidates usually follow each other around to denounce their foes' statements.

The subject of an oil painting by former Walt Disney Co. artist Carl Barks may have been Donald Duck, but the price was hardly Mickey Mouse: $75,000. Pennsylvania real estate tycoon Robert E. Hall bought the Barks painting from Another Rainbow, a Disney licensee in Indianapolis. The painting, featuring Donald, Uncle Scrooge, and siblings Huey, Dewey and Louie, is named "Makings of a Fish Story" and was painted earlier this year.

Democratic Senate candidate Barbara Boxer began airing three new television ads Wednesday. One pledges her support for increased spending on education and another criticizes her Republican opponent, Bruce Herschensohn, on a variety of issues, including his support for offshore oil drilling and his opposition to abortion rights. The third and most hard-hitting ad attacks Herschensohn's proposed federal flat tax.

County supervisors will be asked Tuesday to approve a plan that would see an increase of 18 daily flights at John Wayne Airport, to take effect when the airport's new $50-million passenger terminal opens in April. The plan would enable American Airlines to retain its dominance at the airport and would make bargain-based Midway Airlines the newest carrier with two flights a day.

Three major Republican presidential candidates want to replace all or part of the byzantine federal tax code with a "flat tax" that collects a fixed percentage of one's income, with no brackets and few exemptions. The change would give Americans more incentive to save and invest, and less incentive to cheat. But there are other ways to obtain the economic benefits promised by a flat tax without asking the middle class to shoulder more of the tax burden now borne by those at the top. Originally proposed in 1981 by Stanford University scholars Robert E. Hall and Alvin Rabushka, the flat tax is a variation on the value-added taxes imposed in Europe.

One adviser likens the process to "intellectual liposuction." When Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. set out 15 months ago to flesh out themes for his Democratic presidential campaign, he vacuumed up ideas from a diverse set of policy gurus. "These talks aren't exactly dialogues: He controls the conversation, and you're never sure what he's picking up," says Arthur Laffer, the supply-side economist who is an informal Brown adviser. "He questions you closely, then it's--bing--on to another topic."
BUSINESS

The chief arbiter of the nation's business cycles said Thursday that the most recent recession ended in November 2001 -- even though more than 1 million private-sector jobs have been lost since then, driving the unemployment rate up, not down. The decision by the National Bureau of Economic Research to declare a recovery could prove politically loaded, since, long after the recession's officially avowed end, payrolls across the country are still shrinking.

Now that most of us have completed the annual chore of filing our federal and state income-tax returns, it is a good time to reflect on the entire process by which we pay our annual dues to society. For working Americans, it's probably the biggest expenditure in their personal budget. For many, the tax bill is a larger expenditure than food, shelter and clothing combined. These taxpayers do not believe that the cost of government is worth the price they are being asked to pay.
