Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan named an influential group of civic leaders 15 years ago to streamline what was said to be a tortuous city permitting process that made Los Angeles seem almost hostile to business. Many of the 83 proposals, however, ended up on a shelf collecting dust. Now, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has pledged to fix the same problems and dozens of others believed to impede investment.

When Sarah Jean Davidson came to the nation's capital as a teenager at the height of the 1960s civil rights movement, she was unmoved by the historic buildings around her. "When I looked at the Capitol, I had no connection," said Davidson, now the president of a black history group in Arkansas.

Got a letter from Steve Allen once. I don't mean Steve Allen, the accountant. I mean Steve Allen, the entertainer-comedian, songwriter, actor, not to mention producer, essayist, novelist. Founding host of "The Tonight Show." Perhaps the term "Renaissance man" should be reserved for the likes of, say, Thomas Jefferson. But few people of Hollywood have a resume to match Steve Allen's.

Los Angeles International Airport is lagging well behind other big-city U.S. airports in the contest to attract highly prized foreign travelers at the levels seen before the global recession caused a steep dip in international trips. Large airports in California and most other regions of the country have surpassed their pre-slump foreign traffic numbers from 2005, sometimes dramatically so, according to passenger data examined by The Times. But LAX, which is spending billions to regain its footing as the premier international gateway on the West Coast, still has 4% fewer international arrival and departures compared with its peak of nearly 17.5 million six years ago. Overall, LAX, the nation's third busiest airport, has the second-lowest recovery rate among the 10 U.S. airports that handle the most international passengers.

In January, when MTM Entertainment Inc.'s parent was sold, the tongues were wagging in the television business. The kicker was the identity of the buyer: televangelist Pat Robertson and his International Family Entertainment Inc., the Virginia Beach, Va., owner of cable's Family Channel. Robertson is IFE's chairman, and his family controls 22% of the company's stock. The $86-million acquisition of Studio City-based MTM made for unlikely bedfellows.
