During his legislative career, Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) did things his way. In 1967, the native New Yorker sponsored a trailblazing therapeutic-abortion law in the state Legislature before Roe vs. Wade became law. Nearly three decades later, he miffed the liberals who had long adored him by writing a law that would have denied citizenship rights to babies born to illegal immigrants in the United States.

The Times stated it correctly when it reported that San Fernando Valley legislators "would set aside its promise" to repeal a half-cent sales tax this summer and continue collecting the money. Sen. Rosenthal says: "I don't think anybody, the average citizen, knows it's coming off." As one of the small business owners in the Valley, I know only too well about sales taxes and fees and permits and certificates and licenses, etc., etc. I've seen these taxes and fees go up, some as much as over 200% in the last few years.

San Fernando Valley-area legislators and community activists on Monday denounced Gov. Pete Wilson's plan to lay off inspectors with the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control--claiming that the cutbacks could lead to increased crime and teen-age alcoholism.

When the black-and-orange funicular cars of Angels Flight resumed rattling up and down Bunker Hill two months ago, they were justly hailed as a link to the city's past. After all, the 298-foot-long ride — dubbed "the smallest railway in the world" — dates to 1901. Don't expect comebacks, however, from some other past transit systems, such as the San Pedro-L.A. camel train, the Aerial Swallow monorail, the Pasadena Cycleway and L.A. River Cruises. Each flamed out. L.A.'s brief camel era began in 1863 after the city was given 28 of the creatures from the 1st U.S. Army Camel Corps.
