In an unusual move, putting a national-level politician in a position usually held by an academic, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was selected to lead the University of California system, The Times reported Friday morning . The former Arizona governor's appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history. Napolitano's nomination by a committee of UC regents came after a secretive process that insiders said initially focused on her as a high-profile, though nontraditional, candidate who has led large public agencies and shown a strong interest in improving education.

It's not as if San Diego hasn't had plenty of civic scandals in the past, but you don't get too many news conferences like the one that went down Monday morning in front of San Diego City Hall. After days of references to “unspecified” allegations of sexual harassment against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, three of his former supporters (a one-time city councilwoman and two attorneys) gathered before a bank of microphones and told stories about Filner that would have been shocking 20 years ago, let alone in 2013.
