L.A.'s paparazi problem

Los Angeles city officials are thinking up ways to regulate the paparazi. And I really can't see how this is bad policy despite the protests of Police Chief William Bratton.

The issue isn't misbehaving stars as Bratton would like people to believe. The issue is the general safety of celebrities being chased through the streets by combative groups of tabloid photographers and the resulting chaos that causes for the rest of us motorists.

Bratton didn't help his case by punctuating his comments with a flippant remark about Lindsay Lohan, saying that she's "gone gay." But he said it's OK, noting that he's always supported gay rights and he has a sister who's a lesbian.

Yeah. Sure.
