In memory of Commander. Paul Bauer, a good man and fine police officer.

We've told you about Tuesday's tragic shooting, the reaction, and Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer's career. But there is much more. NBC 5's Carol Marin met Bauer years ago on stories she was working on, including a 2011 piece on the mounted patrol's way of commemorating colleagues killed in the line...

CPD Cmdr. Paul Bauer was a great officer, a fine man, a credit to everyone in this city. What a tragic loss.


Frasier's TV dad, John Mahoney, has died. What a kind and elegant man...even to a perfect stranger like me. Rest in peace, John. No wonder millions will miss you.

Another day, another investigation from the Los Angeles Times Data Desk.

Our OpenNews fellow Christine Zhang teamed up with Gale Holland to document a glaring g...ap between the LAPD's rhetoric and the reality on the street.

It's the centerpiece of today's Sunday print edition, where it sits alongside the police pension story I promoted yesterday.

That's right, the top two stories in today's paper are both Data Desk investigations. I won't be shy: I'm proud of our team.

There are links to Christine's work in the comments. Check it out.
