State Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) is right to be offended by "conversion therapy," the pseudo-psychiatric treatment that purports to talk patients out of being gay and into being straight. There's no medical basis for the treatment, and there's some evidence that it causes harm while failing to do any good. As is so often the case, Lieu and his colleagues in the Legislature reacted to a perceived problem by proposing a bill. Lieu's legislation, SB 1172, which would make it illegal for California psychologists to attempt to convert gay minors, has passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and is working its way through the statehouse.

A replica of Fred Flintstone's car was stolen from a Sacramento comic shop, and the owners are offering a sweet reward for its safe return. The car, a replica of the vehicle from the vintage "Flintstones" cartoon series, was taken from World's Best Comics and Toys between Dec. 14 and 15, Fox40 in Sacramento reported. Staff members believe the thieves may have picked it up and put it in a getaway vehicle, because there were no drag marks.

Occasionally The Times publishes a story that leaves little room for debate, where the reader letters come down so uniformly on one side of the issue that putting a positive spin on the article would seem impossible.

None of the roughly two-dozen reader submissions sent to (two of which were published on Monday's page ) even attempted to note a remotely apologetic aspect of AT&T's grip on California lawmakers.

Rubio (D - Shafter)  to accept a government affairs job with Chevron Corp. sparked renewed complaints by some ethics watchdogs about the revolving door between the public and private sector in Sacramento. As chairman of the Senate Environmental Quality Committee, Rubio was leading the charge to make California's environmental laws more business-friendly and has introduced bills during his two years in office that affect the oil industry in his Central Valley district.
