In the early 1990s, they called themselves the Sagebrush Committee, and their catalyst was Rose McCoppin. As a La Cañada resident living in the Sagebrush, McCoppin was forced to pull her son out of La Cañada's Palm Crest Elementary after Glendale Unified denied her request to allow her son, Kevin, to attend La Cañada schools.

If anyone worried James Ellroy might dumb down the salty language laced throughout his crime novels for an appearance at Glendale Community College this week, they wouldn't have been disappointed. Within 90 seconds of taking the stage, the author of "L.A. Confidential" and "The Black Dahlia" had referenced sex, drugs and physical anatomy, a warm-up for the searing commentary on liberals and hipsters that was to follow. It was a refreshingly unabashed articulation of a unique worldview that has produced one of the most distinctive voices on the local literary scene.
