WELCOME PARTY: Many Bernie Sanders delegates are new to the Democratic Party [Seema Mehta and Maloy Moore @ LAT] - "Many of California’s Democratic delegates backing second-place finisher Bernie Sanders share a notable trait with their candidate — they are new converts to the party. About one in three is a recently registered Democrat, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis of the state party delegation."
It only took a month to count California's votes. Here's why, and why it may get better [Cathleen Decker @ LAT] - "Mail-in balloting has boomed in California because of its convenience. But those ballots have to be checked and verified, acts which take longer than simply spinning them through the counting machine.

DRUGGED: Inside an L.A. OxyContin ring that pushed more than 1 million pills. What the drugmaker knew [LAT]- "The doctor began prescribing the opioid painkiller OxyContin – in extraordinary quantities. In a single week in September, she issued orders for 1,500 pills, more than entire pharmacies sold in a month. In October, it was 11,000 pills. By December, she had prescribed more than 73,000, with a street value of nearly $6 million."
