Journalist Steven Vincent collected facts for his stories from the streets of Basra, not from official statements. But he knew that the streets of Iraq's second-largest city were becoming increasingly unsafe for him. "This is not the easygoing municipality of 1.5 million people I recall," he wrote in a June 9 article for National Review Online.

OPINION
January 19, 2007
BY NOW, MOST Americans are probably familiar with Colin L. Powell's "Pottery Barn rule" for Iraq: You break it, you own it. This notion of responsibility has been invoked to justify extending or increasing the U.S. troop presence there. But it is mysteriously absent from discussions about Iraq's 2 million refugees. One of eight Iraqis is displaced, and the number is growing rapidly. An estimated 1,500 people flee their homes each day, especially in mixed-religion neighborhoods and cities.

A grass-roots group that has been railing against Los Angeles' parking ticket policies has agreed to team up with Mayor Eric Garcetti to look at changes to the enforcement system. Steven Vincent, founder of the Los Angeles Parking Freedom Initiative, said Garcetti invited members of his organization to participate in an official city working group. The panel, Vincent said, will look at an array of possible changes, such as reducing certain fines, expanding parking hours in key locations, making no-parking signs less confusing and halting the practice of using ticket revenue as a tool to balance the city's budget.

A grass-roots group that has been railing against Los Angeles' parking ticket policies announced Thursday that it is teaming up with Mayor Eric Garcetti to work on changes to the enforcement system. Steven Vincent, founder of the Los Angeles Parking Freedom Initiative, said Garcetti invited members of his organization to participate in an official city working group earlier this week. The panel, Vincent said, will look at an array of possible changes, such as reducing the size of certain fines, expanding parking hours in key locations, making no-parking signs less confusing and halting the practice of using ticket revenue as a tool to balance the city's budget.

Could Hedda Gabler live--and die--in 1920s Japan? Dorothy Lyman's East West Players production makes a case for it, and the case will get stronger as the production grows into Henrik Ibsen's play. It will because Jude Narita plays Hedda, and she has just scratched the surface of what is possible with Ibsen's most provocative, disturbing heroine. In her remarkable one-woman show, "Coming Into Passion/Song for a Sansei," Narita displayed Olympian acting chops.

Rodney G. King has dropped his appeal of a jury's decision to deny him punitive damages against the police officers who beat him, and in return, the city of Los Angeles has agreed to waive $28,000 in legal fees in the case, attorneys said Tuesday. The deal between the city and King's lawyers is "a good-faith act on the part of the city to get this behind us," Deputy City Atty. Don Vincent said. The agreement all but ends three years of legal wrangling between King and the city.
