Angels counting on catchers’ pitch-framing skills to boost pitching staff

In retrospect, Angels fans are certainly all longing for the days when their primary concern was if the team had acquired enough pitching to contend this season. A winter of hand-wringing about the Angels missing out on marquee pitching acquisitions has given way to a spring of wondering if the coronavirus pandemic would subside soon enough for there even to be a baseball season. In between, though, during a month of spring training in Arizona, the Angels had grown quietly optimistic that they h...

Photos: Palm Sunday services are livecast from mostly empty rooms to full hearts amid coronavirus closures

This Palm Sunday Mass on April 5 was like none before at Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Los Angeles. Instead of a chapel packed with parishioners, Our Lady Queen of Angels –– otherwise known as La Placita –– was empty on a day where Catholics usually wave blessed palm fronds as a collective body.

Pension bomb fuse just got shorter

Homeowners have enough to worry about in the current coronavirus crisis. They face an April 10 deadline for the second installment of their annual property tax bill and there is no relief — yet — coming from either the governor’s office or the majority of county treasurer/tax collectors. Many taxpayers have been furloughed or laid off and the chances are high that property values throughout America will take a hit — even in California. How could things possibly get worse? Here’s how. The coronav...

U.S. ‘wasted’ months before preparing for coronavirus pandemic

By MICHAEL BIESECKER WASHINGTON (AP) — As the first alarms sounded in early January that an outbreak of a novel coronavirus in China might ignite a global pandemic, the Trump administration squandered nearly two months that could have been used to bolster the federal stockpile of critically needed medical supplies and equipment. A review of federal purchasing contracts by The Associated Press shows federal agencies largely waited until mid-March to begin placing bulk orders of N95 respirator mas...

The toxic side effects of coronavirus lockdowns

Panic is dangerous. More people can be killed by the stampede than by whatever triggered it. Unfortunately, public officials in California have an incentive to fan the flames of panic. How else can a handful of elected officials with no specialized knowledge of anything except fundraising persuade millions of people to obey their directives to stay in their homes, watching from a distance as they lose their jobs and savings? It goes against human nature to sit quietly while being destroyed. Ther...

California economy clobbered — for how long?

We’ve all seen slow motion video clips of horrific damage from head-on automobile collisions staged in auto safety testing facilities. Something like that is happening to California’s economy. Until a few weeks ago, the globe’s fifth largest economy was humming along with record-high output and record-low unemployment. Employers were begging for workers and state and local governments were enjoying revenue surges. “California’s unemployment rate remained at its record low of 3.9% in February as ...

Coronavirus: Paid sick days save all of our lives

Adam Schlesinger and his Fountains of Wayne co-writer Chris Collingwood created better, sadder, funnier songs about the angst of lonely women amid the awful blandness of office culture than anyone in American pop music. Their only contemporary rivals at making short-story like workplace scenes within the tiny confines of a tune are the English band Squeeze. For those who are less than fan-boys, the Schlesinger songs you know are the MTV hit “Stacy’s Mom,” who definitely had it going on, and the ...
