John Feinstein has left the Navy football radio booth after 14 years as an analyst, he announced on his blog Wednesday. Feinstein wrote that he had long been trying to get made an Army-Navy football documentary based on his book "A Civil War," pitching the project to CBS Sports, among others. Then he learned last week that CBS would indeed be making a two-hour documentary on the game, to be shown in full on Showtime and in a shorter form on CBS. But they'll be doing it without Feinstein.

Well, it's sort of complicated.

LOS ANGELES -- In this season of supposed anti-incumbency, former Democratic Mayor Dianne Feinstein of San Francisco would figure to have Republican Sen. Pete Wilson right where she wants him in their race for governor.She is not in office but Wilson is, and he is in the same party as the retiring governor, George Deukmejian, in a state that has had major budget problems. And he shares the Washington incumbency of a Republican president slipping badly in the polls as a result of his flip-flop on taxes and mismanagement of the deficit-reduction fiasco.

WASHINGTON -- Ever since Britain's Princess Diana died in a Paris tunnel as her chauffeur tried to outrun a pack of paparazzi, the nation has been torn between its appetite for candid pictures of famous people and its distaste for the methods used to get them. Lawmakers have tried for years to rein in a tabloid media and still protect the public's right to know, each time running afoul of the First Amendment.But legislation sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and slated for introduction later this month could turn the tables in the skirmishes between the famous and the photographers who pursue them -- not to mention assuage the conscience of a nation hopelessly star-struck, but still believing that even celebrities need some space.

WASHINGTON -- Seeking to curtail illegal immigration, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called yesterday for tough and controversial enforcement measures, including imposing a toll on anyone entering the United States, to raise revenues to build up the Border Patrol.A $1-per-person "transit fee" on pedestrians and passengers crossing U.S. borders would have raised about $400 million last year -- enough money to more than double the Border Patrol's current annual budget, Ms. Feinstein said in a speech on the Senate floor.

LOS ANGELES -- Campaign strategists for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dianne Feinstein are elated by a series of judicial decisions that help even the playing field against Republican Sen. Pete Wilson as their contest enters its final month.The refusal of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to overrule a lower-court decision throwing out certain limits on campaign contributions gives Feinstein a greatly improved chance for a homestretch television advertising blitz on a par with the much-better financed Wilson.

WASHINGTON -- Thank you, Dianne Feinstein. Composition teachers all over the country are indebted to the Democratic senator from California for an editorial published Tuesday in USA Today. Instead of tearing their hair out trying to instruct students in the finer points of logic, rhetoric and critical thinking, teachers will henceforth be able to simply pull out Ms. Feinstein's piece and say, "Don't do this." They will never find a better illustration of a bad argument badly made. Ms. Feinstein is co-sponsor of something called the Flag Protection Amendment, the latest congressional effort to amend the Constitution to protect the U.S. flag from "desecration" - an interesting word, given its connotations of religious devotion.

While acknowledging serious concerns about his views on interrogation techniques, Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Charles E. Schumer of New York said they would vote to confirm Mukasey when the Senate Judiciary Committee takes up his nomination to succeed Alberto R. Gonzales on Tuesday.

The proliferation of gangs in American cities has led to calls for new federal laws and tougher penalties to stem gang violence. Locking up more gang members may deplete their ranks, but only until the next teenager becomes the newest recruit. It's the wrong approach to the real solution, which is keeping youngsters from joining a gang in the first place. We question the need for new laws because there are few crimes unique to gangs. Their members - no matter their colors - murder, steal, sell drugs, extort money, beat up rivals and intimidate witnesses.
