State and city officials this week pledged to explore whether new laws were needed to improve safety at residential care facilities for the elderly. Several area residents meeting at Los Angeles City Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski's local office Wednesday ridiculed existing regulations as vague and inadequate.

As many as 1,000 poor, elderly widows have lost their modest homes in South-Central Los Angeles recently to unscrupulous salesmen using a cynical scam. But a lawyers' group and a black church are working to put a stop to it, and they deserve considerable praise for their efforts.

Elevating ideology above personal history, Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has endorsed City Councilman Mike Feuer in his tough runoff race for city attorney. A year after Yaroslavky, an influential Westside liberal, won election to the board of supervisors in 1994, Feuer succeeded him on the City Council--by beating Yaroslavsky's wife, Barbara, after a long, contentious campaign. Since then, Yaroslavsky has stayed neutral in Feuer's races.
