A sampling of Daniel Weintraub's recent articles appearing in the Sacramento Bee includes:

'Undecided' is gaining momentum - The more California Democrats hear from their two candidates for governor, it seems, the more confused the voters become. And the better Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger does against both of them. March 5, 2006

Perata was right to say he was wrong about preschool - Rare is the politician who admits he was wrong. So give Don Perata credit. March 2, 2006

Is Arnold green? No, say voters - On a fall day in 2004, standing near the rocky shore above the crashing waves at Los Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger unveiled a plan to make California a national leader in ocean conservation. February 26, 2006

Next crisis: Health care for retired public workers - For decades, California's state and local governments have been promising their workers health insurance in retirement. But those same governments have never set aside money to pay for these benefits or even bothered to tally up how much that promise might cost future taxpayers. February 23, 2006

Breaking free from employer-managed health care - Imagine for a moment that your employer was required by law to buy a plan to manage your nutrition needs - rather than simply paying you a wage, out of which you buy the food you want to eat. February 21, 2006

Like long lines? You'll love ID law - If you enjoyed your last trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles, try to envision what your next one could be like. It is not a pretty picture. Feb. 19, 2006

Why Núñez supports a ballot package this year - Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, the Democrat from Los Angeles, says he was being interviewed by a Spanish-language television station recently when the reporter asked him what he and his fellow Democrats in the Legislature had done in recent years to improve the lives of Californians.
