AS METAPHOR, Tom Bradley's career as cop and mayor of Los Angeles was the stuff of Hollywood:Impoverished Texas background, born on cotton plantation, grandson of slaves, migration west; low-key, soft-spoken, stoic; stately demeanor wins over overwhelmingly white metropolis in bid to become L.A.'s first black mayor; in a final public scene near the end of his tenure, he loses his cool in reacting to the Rodney King saga.Mr. Bradley, who died Tuesday at the age of 80, was mayor for 20 years, overseeing tremendous growth, sprawl, gridlock and air pollution that have long been synonymous with the city.

Meyer man for the job Keith Groller The Morning Call In the scandal's aftermath, a fresh start is needed. That means no one on the current staff should be considered, although how well Tom Bradley does in the interim could make him difficult to overlook or at least get him a top gig elsewhere. Of the other Penn Staters who are head coaches, Al Golden is the most attractive. But this would still seem to be about one man, Urban Meyer. No one not currently on a college sideline possesses the pedigree of Meyer.

Los Angeles, the city of perpetual ambivalence, is questioning itself again. The home of Spanglish rap and Italian-Thai restaurants and more than 100 languages and dialects is wondering whether its "multicultural" self is still viable.The alternative is, of course, nationalism, and there are plenty of examples of that, too, from black vs. Latino race riots on inner-city high school campuses to increasing numbers of suburban hate crimes. There's also talk of dividing the Los Angeles School District -- this move being led by residents in the mostly white San Fernando Valley who wish to distance themselves from a black and Latino inner-city.

LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled yesterday that the City Council was within its authority when it pre-empted the Police Commission's move to place Police Chief Daryl F. Gates on a 60-day leave of absence.The ruling by Judge Ronald Sohigian, which leaves Chief Gates ensconced in his position, could have major ramifications for control of the 8,300-member Los Angeles Police Department."The [city] Charter gives the council the power to act as it did," Judge Sohigian wrote in a 49-page opinion.
