WASHINGTON - Confronted with a mass hunger strike and the use of forced feedings to keep inmates from starving, President Obama broke a long silence on the military prison for suspected foreign terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, declaring it "not sustainable" and making a strongly worded plea Tuesday for its closure. Guantanamo is "a problem that is not going to get better. It's going to get worse. It's going to fester," Obama said at a White House news conference in his most extensive comments on the issue in two years.

The union representing nearly 13,000 University of California patient-care workers plans to take a strike vote beginning Tuesday. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME 3299, will hold the strike vote through Thursday and announce results next week. The vote comes after nearly a year of negotiations between the workers and UC over staffing, pay and pension reforms. The contract expired in September. Union President Kathryn Lybarger said the university is putting profits above patient safety and that workers want better staffing and fair pay. The hospitals have seen more understaffing and the use of temporary employees, she said.

For a couple of Texas guys like Clayton Kershaw and Carl Crawford, a home in Southern California may not be where their hearts are. But it's certainly where their success resides. Just consider the results Sunday when Kershaw held Milwaukee to four hits over eight innings, striking out a season-high 12 batters, and Crawford hit two home runs to guide the Dodgers to a 2-0 victory over the Brewers. For Kershaw, the win left him 3-1 with an 0.92 earned-run average at Dodger Stadium this year and 37-18, 2.28 in his career.
