A couple of months before his second birthday, Terrold Bean moved into his new home here. His foster parents converted him to Roman Catholicism and called him "son." He stayed until he was 20. Bean called Catherine and Arthur Ford "Mom" and "Dad," and referred to their one biological child, Mary Catherine, as his sister. After the deaths of the women, Bean cared for his foster father in his old age. But the law has yet to recognize these bonds of time and devotion.

It must be nice to sit in an office in Marina del Rey pontificating about what's wrong with the world while engaging in sanctimonious hyperbole about the decay of an entire generation of American youth. Josephson does not even identify what his role as a harbinger of ethical platitudes is. Is he a parent, a teacher, a worker, a manager or a business leader? Or is he just a brow-beater of the first order, ready in theory but lacking in implementation? Perhaps Josephson ought to spend more time in the front lines of life acting as a role model for my misguided generation.

It's the lusty month of May--time for a local production of "Camelot." Fullerton Civic Light Opera's version will do fine until a more imaginative take on the Lerner and Loewe musical comes along. Director Jan Duncan assembled an excellent trio, musically and dramatically, for the leading roles. As King Arthur, Brendan Ford--occasionally recalling a young Anthony Hopkins--retains enough youthful charisma to illustrate why Guenevere remains in love with him even after her eye wanders.

As much as I'd like to have him around, it's probably a good thing James Thurber isn't alive today. He'd undoubtedly lose his mind. Back in 1935 Thurber wrote a book called "Let Your Mind Alone," which was a sort of antidote to the how-to-calm-your-mind, find-happiness, and get-rich books that were then streaming from the publishing towers of New York and making up for the losses incurred by first novels and books of history.

July 18, 1993 | KAREN GRIGSBY BATES, Karen Grigsby Bates writes from Los Angeles about modern culture, race relations and politics for several national publications.
The truth, as the Bible tells us, is the light. What it didn't tell us was this: Sometimes the light will make you mad before it deigns to set you free. Jack Shakely, the president of the California Community Foundation, found that out the hard way earlier this month, when he was blasted by Latino and African-American grant-makers who read remarks he'd made in an interview after last year's civil unrest.

A generation ago, seven citizens handpicked by President Lyndon B. Johnson created a non-government policy group to assess the needs of U.S. cities and the effectiveness of government social experiments to help the poor. The era of the Great Society is long since over, and the Urban Institute, as the organization was called, has emerged as one of the nation's leading think tanks on public policy issues, celebrating last month, in the Reagan era, its 20th birthday.

Dear Street Smart: I want an update on an issue that I know you have covered before--the lane width on northbound MacArthur Boulevard north of Ford Road where Irvine and Newport Beach adjoin. I know that Caltrans said it was planning on taking care of it later. When is later? You should understand that Caltrans recently widened MacArthur Boulevard down the hill 100 yards or so, and it is three lanes wide from there all the way to the San Diego Freeway.
