The Nasdaq composite index hasn't been able to put together a three-day rally since late August. But history says that jinx is about to be broken. Today is the last trading day of the year, and in Nasdaq's entire history--since 1971--the index has never failed to rally in the final session of the year, says the Stock Trader's Almanac, a market fact book published by the Hirsch Organization in Old Tappan, N.J.

Reacting to a political climate they see as increasingly hostile to abortion rights, religious progressives and supporters of legal abortion met at a landmark conference this week. Their goal is to assert the morality of the right to choose and wrest the theological high ground from religious conservatives. "We've been negligent in promoting our message that there's more than one religious viewpoint on this issue," said the Rev.

Playwright Ron Milner, a prominent theatrical chronicler of African American lives, has died. He was 66. Milner died July 16 from complications of liver cancer in a Detroit hospital. Though Milner's first successes depicted the urban poor, his 1987 "Checkmates" was about middle-class strivers. "Checkmates" was staged with starry casts at two Los Angeles venues and later on Broadway.

Freshman Jorge Reyes led Oregon State to within one win of its second straight College World Series title with another strong pitching performance and the Beavers beat North Carolina, 11-4, in Game 1 on Saturday night. North Carolina, which won three straight elimination games to set up a rematch of last year's championship series, needs to win twice to keep Oregon State from becoming the first back-to-back national champion since Louisiana State in 1996-97.

In January of this year, Gov. George Deukmejian made public his plan to eliminate Cal/OSHA and turn the protection of workers in California over to the federal Occupational, Safety and Health Administration program, allegedly to save the taxpayers $8 million. This is a terrible blunder that will cost the people of California dearly in terms of increases in worker illness, injury and death. If the Cal/OSHA program is abandoned, there surely will be annual losses of untold millions of dollars due to lost worker productivity, increased medical costs and escalating workers' compensation expenditures.

Of the 33,378 teachers represented in "Teachers' Absenteeism Troubles L.A. District" (May 9), 20,839, or 62.4%, missed seven to nine days, or less. That's less than one day per month. And 5,364 missed no days. Zero! I've been a public schoolteacher since 1969 (in LAUSD since 1973). This year, I've been absent three days. I love my work, but I've seen everything in the classroom change. Students and teachers are now subjected to the most extraordinary distractions imaginable. An occasional "mental health" day can serve everyone.
