People in our country mostly seem to possess an innate faith in government. Probably that has evolved because, while our governments generally are unnecessarily expensive, wasteful and intrusive, they have not been overtly corrupt like so many others around the world. And most people feel that at least government means well. But this growth of government is harmful for at least two reasons.

STEVE SMITH It's easy to hate Newport Beach. Like the newly elected politician, the hot actor or the sports champion, everyone seems to want to take a shot at No. 1, to be the one to bring down the star. Having experienced this firsthand while working for someone at the top, I can tell you that's not a pretty sight. Critics of Newport Beach and the surrounding communities of Corona del Mar and Balboa will point out that the city is one of the least ethnically diverse in the nation.

Celebrated chef Roy Yamaguchi jetted into Newport Beach last week for a star-studded evening at Roy's of Newport Beach. The dinner was organized to introduce Y Sake, an ultra-premium proprietary liquor that Yamaguchi combined with a five course tasting menu. Sixty "foodies," invited for their culinary status on the social food chain, filled Roy's lanai with talk of everything from food and wine to the lavish $5-million premiere of Disney's "Pearl Harbor," which some of the guests had attended in Honolulu before coming to the mainland and the dinner in Newport Beach.
