Former Housing Secretary Henry G. Cisneros pleaded guilty Tuesday to a single misdemeanor count of lying to the FBI, just as jury selection was about to begin in his federal court trial on 18 felony charges. Tacitly acknowledging the weakness of the prosecution's case, independent counsel David M. Barrett agreed that Cisneros should serve no jail time in return for his plea and pay a $10,000 fine.

Kaufman & Broad's well-financed venture with Henry Cisneros will further exacerbate the housing shortage for the less-than-$10-an-hour wage earner in Southern California ["Cisneros Forms Company to Build Homes," Aug. 8]. There is no public benefit to cheer about. Cities will fall all over themselves to attract the Cisneros gentrification group as a way to eliminate probably the only truly affordable housing for families earning less than $10. We are all for eliminating these apartments after new replacement housing is built for the existing residents.

A decade ago, he was hailed as the perfect politician for the '80s--an energetic, young Latino with Harvard credentials, populist appeal and movie-idol looks. His future was never in doubt. He would be mayor, senator, vice president and--maybe, in time--President of the United States. But Henry G. Cisneros--now designated to be secretary of Housing and Urban Development--has never gotten further in elected office than his four terms as mayor of San Antonio.

With her latest "Have You Seen Marie?," Sandra Cisneros has written a picture book for adults (and kids too). It's not what readers expected from Cisneros, who leaped onto the literary scene in 1984 with "The House on Mango Street" and continued with an acclaimed literary career.

Creating an illustrated book, she tells the L.A. Times' Hector Tobar, was a little like working on a film.
