The note got right to the point. It said, "Al, you idiot. Why did you give that (expletive) space in the paper?" It was signed Danny Perez. At first, I didn't know to which expletive he was referring, since I seek out and write about many of them in the new-format, easy-reading L.A. Times. That is not an impossible task in Los Angeles.

"Fourteen years. You can't beat that for perseverance." Bruno said. "Now I have the championship belt, and no one can take it away."
