The Declaration of Independence gets all the attention. When its bicentennial came up, they threw parties all over the country and broadcast a "Bicentennial Minute" every night on TV. Now it's the Bill of Rights' bicentennial year, and how much have you heard about that? But in Orange County there is at least one eccentric monument to the Bill of Rights: the RV parked behind Ron Talmo's house. It has carried him coast to coast, seeking out places that have provoked some of the most important U.

It's not that I think the protesters' cries in Westminster's Little Saigon are less poignant than a month ago. Their stories of Communist oppression in their homeland ring as powerfully as ever. Nor is it that I think video store owner Truong Van Tran has risen to heroic status. He may well be an overly theatrical opportunist with all kinds of ulterior motives for wanting to hang a poster of Ho Chi Minh inside his shop. Maybe he set out to antagonize as many potential customers as possible.

Brown said, "I am deeply sorry for the hurt caused by the actions of Father Lenihan, and extend my apology to Ms. [Lori] Haigh and all victims of sexual clergy abuse."

The city has filed a lawsuit seeking a preliminary injunction against the owner of Paddy Murphy's topless bar in Santa Ana, who wants to open a similar bar in Newport Beach near John Wayne Airport. The lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court seeks to stop An Nguyen from opening a topless bar because it will include private theaters where customers can watch nude dancing. Theaters are barred from that area under the local zoning code, said city officials.

A judge on Tuesday denied Truong Van Tran's request that the district attorney's office be disqualified from prosecuting the video piracy case against him. Attorneys for Tran, who set off a series of protests in Little Saigon by placing Communist symbols in his shop earlier this year, argued that Dist. Atty. Anthony J. Rackauckas was biased because he had spoken at a political rally in support of the protesters. They wanted the case to be handled instead by the state attorney general's office.
