From crime uptick to crime wave? — "Crime drops to new lows," read Tuesday's Chronicle headline for a story about historic lows in crime statistics, nationally as well as in the Bay Area. The good news of lower crime rates is especially amazing for California, where in 2011 Gov.

Sheriff’s disappearing domestic violence charge — Whoever would have thought in 2012, when Mayor Ed Lee unsuccessfully tried to oust Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi from office because he pleaded guilty to a charge of domestic violence ( for bruising his wife's arm during an argument), that when and if Mirkarimi ran for re-election, The Chronicle would host a debate with his opponent, and his challenger would not utter the words "domestic violence?"

California’s new Death Row - Virginia — Anti-death penalty advocates, federal judges and defense attorneys have been so successful at blocking capital punishment in California that a San Quentin Death Row inmate has more to fear from being extradited for a capital murder to another state than seeing his sentence carried out here.

Speaker Boehner, you will be missed — The GOP looks like the fun party with its ring-a-ding leader and his dash of Dean Martin. Boehner even sauntered into his press conference announcing his resignation Friday crooning Zip-a-dee-doo-day. The speaker chose not to cling to power, but to walk away without compromising his supporters.

Mayor’s standing reflects San Francisco’s conservative side — The Board of Supervisors has flirted with allowing 16-year-olds to vote in some city elections, opposed banning sex-selection abortions and unanimously approved the infamous "Due Process for All" ordinance that directed local law enforcement not to honor federal immigration officials' detainer requests unless an inmate has a violent felony conviction in the past seven years.

Speaker Boehner: Take this job and shove it — House Speaker John Boehner let it be known that he is resigning his post Friday morning. He is bowing out as a small rump of Republicans have been pushing the House to pass a spending bill that would de-fund Planned Parenthood, be vetoed by President Obama if it ever made it to his desk, and thereby shut down the federal government.

Who wants to shut down the government? — Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, 'We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain,' quoth Carly Fiorina at the GOP's Simi Valley debate.

Democrats have plenty to fear once GOP field dwindles — Democratic partisans have been rubbing their hands with glee as billionaire Donald Trump's antics have dominated the Republican primary. I hope they're enjoying themselves, because they soon may find themselves in their own world of hurt.

Keep your eyes on the race: Carly Fiorina’s prepared to fight — SIMI VALLEY, Ventura County - Who is this Carly Fiorina? In the press filing center at the CNN Republican debate, journalists from around the country were asking reporter Carla Marinucci and me because we covered the former Hewlett-Packard CEO in 2010 when she ran for the Senate against Democrat Barbara Boxer - and failed spectacularly by 1 million votes.
