I shouldn't be one to poke fun at typos and brain freezes, since they happen to me so often, but just for the record: Jose Padilla is the accused terrorist, Alex Padilla is the president of the L.A. city council. From this week's CityBeat editorial, "Crises of Faith":
The courts may save us in the end. They are all thatís left, a last line of defense against a government that seems to be aggressively overreaching in the war on terrorism, blurring the lines between human rights and national security. The case of alleged Al Qaeda terrorist Alex Padilla will mark an important moment for the country and its commitment to the U.S. Constitution.
Bet they'd like that one back.
