Before Harris departs Sacramento and climbs another rung on the ladder to success and power in Washington, I have one urgent message for her: Settle the class-action lawsuit of Ashker v. Brown, which challenges the state's solitary confinement practices at the notorious Pelican Bay State Prison, as quickly and comprehensively as possible.

Instead of pandering and trying to connect the murder to a lack of "comprehensive immigration reform," it would be fitting if Ms. Harris would accept the simple truth that Lopez-Sanchez should not have been in the US -- and then try to figure out solutions to avoid any more senseless murders.

California is a funny place. In some ways it's ahead of the curve -- think, I don't know, crop-tops and the Apple watch -- in other ways it's, well, on a par with Uganda. The recent advancement of the "Sodomite Suppression Act" and the Attorney General's hamstrung reaction is a case in point.
