Ruben Navarrette Jr. has once again played fast and lose with the facts and scarcely disguised his prejudice against the United Farm Workers in a commentary on the August farm labor van crash near Fresno that killed 13 tomato workers (Opinion, Sept. 19). Navarrette derides lawyers representing the families of the dead and injured workers as a group that "circle[d] the accident scene." In fact, these attorneys are legal representatives of the Mexican Consulate, which called them in to represent the families of the Mexican nationals who were crash victims.

The murder trial of David Westerfield, who faces death for killing his 7-year-old San Diego neighbor, inspired legislation Thursday to expand the definition of kidnapping. Assemblywoman Sarah Reyes (D-Fresno) introduced a bill to redefine the crime to include moving a child's corpse. Her proposed law could make it more likely that child killers would face execution, because murder in connection with kidnapping is a "special circumstance" crime, which means the death penalty may be applied.

With California facing a $10-billion budget shortfall, state lawmakers are wondering why Gov. Gray Davis never got around to appointing anyone to the state's Economic Strategy Panel. The Legislature established the panel in 1993 to hold public hearings on the state's economy and its prospects for prosperity, as well as to spot emerging industries. But the group last met at a retreat in December 1998. Davis is supposed to appoint eight of the panel's 14 members.

After debating more than two hours on various resolutions regarding the war in Iraq, the California Assembly voted 74 to 0 Tuesday night for one that supports the U.S. troops but doesn't mention support for the attack itself. The surprising display of unity came after a rancorous exchange over four resolutions and multiple amendments. Republicans sought language that indicated support for the troops and President Bush as commander in chief, while many Democrats resisted any endorsement of the U.
