I received a note from an unhappy reader: "I am obliged to write this letter because you haven't shown much inclination to return my calls." Yes, I'm bad about not returning my calls.

Nielsen, and he retired last year as executive director of the California Transportation Commission.

The residential fringes along Los Angeles County's freeways are rapidly turning into noisy political battlegrounds.
