A leader of one of California's largest unions has resigned from its national governing council, charging that the group's president has been meddling with its chapters. Sal Rosselli, head of an Oakland-based chapter of the Service Employees International Union, said in a letter to President Andy Stern that efforts to increase membership by organizing new sectors has "eclipsed SEIU's commitment to its members." Rosselli has been outspoken as Stern has moved to consolidate many California chapters and install temporary leaders.

The brain registers information and processes it in the blink of an eye--perhaps literally. Research suggests that blinking may indicate that a person has stored information, made a decision or performed a difficult mental task, according to John A. Stern, professor of psychology at Washington University. "For a long time, people generally believed we blink only to moisten our eyes," he said. But Stern now believes that blinking is not a random act.

Please thank Westcott for the time and effort he has put into documenting the offensiveness of talk-show host Stern. As a grandparent of a 2-year-old and a parent of two teen-age daughters, ages 13 and 18, I am appalled at what radio hosts get away with. I am so thankful for Westcott speaking out. Stern and other hosts are so gross, crude and offensive that I'm ashamed they are allowed on American radio stations. JOY L. ARNSWALD Anaheim

City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo said Tuesday that his office secured a $10-million settlement from a company accused of engaging in a scheme to drive low-income people out of more than 800 rent-controlled apartments. Darren Stern, the owner of Landmark Equity Management Inc., agreed to pay a $1-million penalty and establish a $9-million restitution fund to repay tenants who were forced out of the company's apartments since 2002, according to Delgadillo's office. The settlement will also ban Stern from the city's residential real estate market for four years and six months, city officials said.

Male or female, black or white, Stern and Quivers both represent morons on the air. That their daily celebration of ignorance and juvenile behavior is embraced by so many Americans as representative of what they (as average Americans) are really thinking is just another indication of this country's headfirst plunge down the toilet of doom.
