Flanigan would succeed James Comey, who plans to leave his government post later this year.

CRONY CAPITALISM is the name of the Republican game. Their slogan is "take care of your friends and leave the risks of the free market for the suckers." That would be John Q. Public. From Halliburton's overcharging in Iraq to Enron's manipulation of the California energy crisis and now the emerging hurricane reconstruction boondoggle, we witness what happens when the federal government is turned into a glorified help desk and ATM machine for politically connected corporations.

Almost everyone has an opinion about public education in California, including a group of chief executives from the state's largest corporations, who have been working quietly with the Legislature to reform the public school system. Last September, Gov. George Deukmejian signed a school reform bill sponsored by the 92-member California Roundtable. A study commissioned by the Roundtable showed that California public schools had the seventh-highest dropout rate in the nation.

Vice President Dick Cheney is hiding something--and it's not the cost of his electric bills. It's bad enough that the man who told Americans, "If you want to leave all the lights on in your house, you can--but you will pay for it" has gotten the Navy to foot the electric bills for his mansion at the Washington Naval Observatory rather than pay them out of his own official budget. But Cheney's high-profile clumsiness shouldn't disguise a far more significant misstep.

Gov. Pete Wilson has signed a heavily lobbied bill that just about slams the door on construction of new homes in the City of Industry but opens the way for building a long-sought high school in nearby Diamond Bar. By signing the measure Tuesday, Wilson set in motion a precedent-setting arrangement to exempt Industry, an almost purely commercial and manufacturing community, from state requirements that would have forced the city to build about 112 homes for people of low and moderate means.

The resignation of California's lottery director Monday amid allegations of favoritism in the awarding of contracts came after nearly two years of rising concerns within Gov. Pete Wilson's office about the appearance of ties between the Administration and the lottery's major supplier. Bob White, Wilson's chief of staff, urged two of the governor's former advisers in December, 1991, to sever their connections with GTECH, a fast-growing computer firm based in West Greenwich, R.I.

Dooming conservative hopes for a pre-election tax cut, the Justice Department told the White House Thursday that President Bush lacks legal authority to sidestep Congress and unilaterally order a cutback in the capital gains tax. Only hours later, the White House announced that it would not attempt such a move, which it had described earlier in the day as being "on the front burner" of consideration among top Bush aides.
