NEWS ANALYSIS; An Upended Political Landscape Could Harm Pakistans President
Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhuttos death raises the specter of prolonged political conflict between Pakistans president, Pervez Musharraf, and the countrys opposition, according to Pakistani and American analysts. How he handles the next several days could determine whether nationwide antigovernment protests erupt. I see a lot more trouble - News analysis: political analysts say death of former Prime Min Benazir Bhutto puts Pres Pervez Musharraf in precarious position; suggest that how Musharraf handles next several days could determine whether nationwide antigovernment protests will erupt; Musharraf remains deeply unpopular after declaring state of emergency and suppressing Bhutto and other political opponents; core of Musharrafs predicament is perception that he did too little to protect Bhutto or that his government carried out assassination itself; going forward with upcoming elections will be seen as taking advantage of Bhuttos death; photo (M) - By DAVID ROHDE; Jane Perlez contributed reporting from Sydney, Australia.

How much is the fee for parking your car at LAX?
I plan to drive myself to LAX because a shuttle is to much, any way i plan to leave the car for a week. How much would it be?
Answer: It all depends on how far away you would like to park. I paid $5.00 a day and they had a shuttle to take you back and forth. There are Red, Blue and Green signs at the airport, the shuttle will tell you what color to be at. They usually have drivers waiting o take you to the airport and the wait on the return is usually about 5 min. The closer you get the more you pay. Look online for "LAX Parking Comparison". Hope this helps

How can I get to LAX from Disneyland for an early flight?
My flight leaves LAX at 7:45am on Saturday. None of the shuttles seem to run that early. They start at 6am and would not give us enough time to make the flight.
Can anyone please give me some ideas of how to transport 10 people from Castle Inn & Suites just outside of Disneyland to LAX? Would a couple of taxis be the only way? We already have a way there, just not back. It has to be something that will run earlier that 6am.

How long would it take to drive from Santa Barbara to LAX?
I need to drive from SB to LAX for a flight at 3:50, the only problem is I have class in the morning and the class ends at 12:30. Im going to estimate around 2 hours to drive from santa barbara to lax, and a little less if i book it down there. Do you think this is enough time to check in and so on. It is a domestic flight at 3:50 pm and I have no luggage to book, just need to get through security. Do you think thats enough time? I will also be putting my car in overnight parking for a couple of days, and get a shuttle, do you think i can make it? thanks all.
Answer: Urgh, thats kinda cutting it close. It could take you like 2 hours if traffic is heavy just to get from Santa Barbara to the LA Metro area (i.e. 405 and 101 intersection) and then from there another possible hour into LAX. Southbound 405 is always LOADED starting about 12N on so even if you hit no traffic most of the way you will for sure coming on 101 and approaching the 405. Also the PCH south (or another name for highway 1 out of Santa Barbara) is hit or miss. If the traffic isn't TOO bad but average LA you can probably make it curbside by 3:10, 3:20 at the latest. If its REALLY bad you probably get there right at 3:50 or after.

What is the best way to get from LAX to Venice Beach?
My husband is arriving at LAX at 10am from Melbourne and i am not arriving until 8pm from Canada. My husband will obviously be wanting to check in to our hotel at Venice Beach and then go back to the airport to meet me when my plane arrives. Does anyone know bus routes and the cheapest way to get to and fro LAX? Any suggestions would be gratly appreciated!
Answer: The cheapest way is by bus: Take a shuttle to the LAX City Bus Center. Then take Metro Rapid 3 to Lincoln and Venice Blvd. If he needs to go further, he can transfer to Metro bus 33 going west towards the ocean. Should be $1.50.
It's close enough for a taxi (which should run around $20), but I'm wondering why you don't rent a car? LA is very spread out, and taking the bus takes 3 times longer to go anywhere.
