50 years later, truth still matters to USS Liberty crewman who survived attack by Israelis

Modesto’s Ron Grantski was a cryptographer on the super-secret spy ship that was attacked by Israeli planes and torpedo boats in the Mediterranean Sea during the Six Days War of 1967. Israel claimed it hit the wrong ship, and the U.S. government went along despite 34 killed and 174 wounded. But you’ll have a tough time convincing Grantski and others who survived the attack that it wasn’t intentional and an attempt to bring the U.S. into the war.

Denham playing victim card? Not the first time, as duly noted

Last fall, the wives of at least three and who knows how many more Republicans running for state or national offices – Rep. Jeff Denham among them – wrote letters decrying political attacks against their husbands by opponents. Same letterhead, typefaces, and all dated the same, and more. But now the vitriol comes not from consultants but from constituents, and that should concern him more.

Black leader frustrated by treatment from Modesto security guard, calls it profiling

Pastor Darius Crosby says a security guard in a northeast Modesto shopping center targeted him because of race. Getting no follow-up call from center manager compelled him to take his case to a City Council meeting to jump-start the conversation. “It struck me that this is the first time I’d done it for myself,” Crosby said. “But it really isn’t. It is for other people. Staying silent wouldn’t have helped anyone.”
