  • CA30 (Sherman Oaks): added small business owner Jon Pelzer (D) 

Another quiet day in the news, but at least the Giants won, although it took 11 innings for a 2-1 victory.

AURAL PLEASURE: Joining John Myers this week are the LAT's Melanie Mason and Liam Dillon for the California Politics Podcast. Of course, the main topic is Speaker Anthony Rendon's shelving of the single-payer health care bill.  

STETHOSCOPE: The MercNews's Katy Murphy looks at the vile behavior that has followed the health care inaction, as does the Chron's Melody Gutierrez.

In his weekly column, John Myers looks at Jerry Brown's "wall of debt"--officially gone--but with hundreds of billions of additional liabilities for such thing as state employee retirement. 

As if the 405 wasn't bad enough, a Cessna crashed on the overworked freeway after takeoff at the John Wayne Airport. Fortunately, no critical injuries.
