Transcript of proceedings of the grand jury, morning session, Aug. 14, 2009 Mr. Starr: Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, we are looking into what my office terms the "domino theory" of the conduct of the Secret Service--turning a blind eye to criminal conduct in the White House, not only during the Clinton administration-- which I believe was from 1993 until 2001--but throughout many administrations. We will resume hearing testimony from Agent Lewis.
A Ventura Port District commissioner is facing criticism for not disclosing a conviction for bribe-taking while he served as a Los Angeles Harbor commissioner 24 years ago in a case that was overturned on appeal. A number of Ventura officials expressed dismay this week that Robert (Nick) Starr never mentioned the bribery case in interviews before they appointed him on June 29 to an unpaid seat on the five-member Board of Commissioners.

Two doctors testified Wednesday in the murder trial of Oxnard parents accused of fatally beating their toddler last year. Dr. William Starr, a plastic surgeon, told the Superior Court jury that he examined a series of severe wounds on Joselin Hernandez in July 1994 while she was hospitalized at the Ventura County Medical Center. Then 6 weeks old, the child had third-degree burns on the tops of her feet and hands as well as burn-like injuries to her buttocks and inside her mouth, Starr said.

Starr's article calls the police and the librarians' unions "irresponsible trade unionism." As a union member for almost my whole working life, I am offended by his attack on these unions, even so far as to suggest that these people should lose their jobs, while ignoring the role management plays. According to him it's all the unions' fault and their members' fault. Had Starr looked around, I am quite sure he would have seen the management side refusing to bargain or negotiate with anything close to a meaningful offer.

Apologies are very important to many people--perhaps women more than men--as a show of contrition and a prerequisite for forgiveness. This assumption seemed to drive the expectation that the president should offer one. But at the same time, many people--perhaps more men than women--resist apologizing, because it puts them in a position of weakness that could be exploited in the future.

Re "Clinton Rape Charge Can't Be Proved," Column Left, Feb. 26: In his article on Juanita Broaddrick, Bill Press either didn't understand the allegations in the impeachment trial or else, and more likely, he is intellectually dishonest. In his conclusion Press states: "If Starr would impeach Clinton for oral sex, he would certainly indict or impeach him for rape, if he could prove it." When Ken Starr interviewed Broaddrick, he was trying to determine whether she was under White House pressure to submit a false affidavit in the Paula Jones case.

Professor Robert B. McLaren of Cal State Fullerton attempts to help his many students answer the "call for balanced consideration" (Orange County Voices, Aug. 23). I write to help him. McLaren and President Clinton need to know that good government is composed of probity, order and procedure and not of economy, education and health care. McLaren joins the blame-and-deflect team. He suggests Ronald Reagan helped kill 160 Americans at Lockerbie. He makes bald statements like "Starr's strong-arm tactics are well known," as if that were true.

As he jogs near his residence in suburban Dallas, only a mile from the Cowboys' complex, he has ample time to ponder the chain of events that brought him home early this fall. "It's different being here this time of year," John Jefferson said. "Friends ask what you're doing. It doesn't feel so good. "I try not to show it, because that's not going to change anything. But there's no doubt I've got the incentive to be an All-Pro again. I want it so bad.
