    Southern California houses don’t have gutters. Not enough rain. I wish I could say I noticed this, with my keen journalist’s eye. But it was my wife who, strolling around the lovely college town of Claremont, east of Los Angeles, pointed it out. That happens a lot. What I noticed was the sign for the “Black Graduation Ceremony” two days before commencement at Pomona College, the liberal arts school where my kid got his degree Sunday. The sign was the first thing I saw stepping on campus, and set the tone. What could black graduation be? Like black proms at...

    A U.S.-based Saudi professor and former U.N. fellow says he agrees with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the Holocaust is a "myth" and says America eventually will collapse like the Soviet Union. Abdullah Mohammad Sindi, who has taught at four American schools, told Iran's Mehr News Agency Dec. 26, "I agree wholeheartedly with President Ahmadinejad." "There was no such a thing as the 'Holocaust,'" Sindi said, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute. "The so-called 'Holocaust' is nothing but Jewish-Zionist propaganda. There is no proof whatsoever that any living Jew was ever gassed or burned in Nazi Germany or...

    A geology professor at Pomona College admits students to her “Southern California Earthquakes and Water” course through a blanket of racial and socio-economical discriminations. Professor Linda Reinen’s flyer introduces her class as a unique and intriguing hands-on exploration into the tectonic and hydrologic challenges faced in California. It then lowers the hammer of discrimination against white, middle-class students, specifying her racial and income level preference on how she accepts students for enrollment.

    According to the ethos of black students at Pomona College, one of the nation’s most competitive (and expensive) small liberal arts colleges, white people cannot legitimately study and write about black criminals. Tony Airaksinen of Campus Reform writes: Students at Pomona College have published a demand letter urging administrators to rescind their offer to hire Sociology Professor Alice Goffman because she’s white. The “Letter to the Pomona College Sociology Department,” published last Friday argues that by hiring Goffman, the administration has neglected their commitment to promoting diversity and supporting women of color. “This practice is detrimental to Pomona’s goal of...

    Debate over abortion-related legislation took a combative turn in the Assembly today when a Pomona Democrat blasted male ignorance of women's bodies, then defied house floor leaders who asked her to stop. Assemblywoman Norma Torres' outburst ended nearly an hour of fierce debate over Senate Bill 623 to continue a pilot project in which physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurse midwives provide first-trimester aspiration abortions. The measure ultimately passed, 46-24, despite Republican opposition. Torres began her floor speech by noting the words of Todd Akin - though not mentioning his name. The U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri sparked a national...

    Pomona residents will roll out the red carpet Thursday as President Barack Obama stops by the Edison International Vehicle Electrics plant in the city. Daniel Swift said he was delightfully surprised when he heard Obama was planning to visit his hometown of Pomona. The rehabilitation of downtown and efforts to bring in more small businesses reminded Swift of changes Obama is trying to introduce. Obama will visit the plant at 265 N. East End Ave., in the morning. The visit may be tied to the advances that Edison has made with its electric vehicles. The tour is scheduled for 10:30...

    The most successful congregations are those that do not seem to have much going for them, according to a renowned urban evangelist. First Presbyterian Church of Pomona, Calif., had more than 2,000 members in 1939. With membership down to 80 people 50 years later, the church was on the verge of extinction, the Presbyterian News Service reported. At that time, the once thriving church was only interested in preserving itself and returning to "the glory years," evangelist Robert Linthicum had said at a Presbyterian Church USA social justice conference in New Orleans recently. "If the church is caught up in...

    POMONA - A group running from coast to coast for immigrants' rights may have an extra skip in its step today after scoring a symbolic victory from Pomona city leaders Monday night. The City Council passed a resolution late Monday condemning a federal proposal for tough new immigration restrictions -- a decision made on the heels of a colorful morning rally staged by the runners on City Hall's steps. The vote followed nearly two hours of public comment, much of it in favor of the resolution. City council members, concerned about the resolution's language, however, proposed amending portions of it...

    After Friday-night prayers, inside a modest mosque behind a McDonald's on Murchison Avenue in Pomona, nearly 400 Muslims were gathered for a rare town hall meeting on the situation in Iraq. They were Shiites and Sunnis, men, women and children from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds from throughout Southern California. But, inside Ahlul-Beyt Mosque, a Shiite house of worship, those labels appeared not to matter.
