Nine o'clock on Saturday morning, and Dave Foreman has just finished a back-yard breakfast with a group of Laguna Beach environmentalists. Within an hour, they'll head up toward an area of Laguna Canyon known as Sycamore Hills and protest the planned six-lane San Joaquin Hills tollway that would crisscross the canyon. It's the same place local residents converged by the thousands in 1989 and, as local history would have it, persuaded the Irvine Co.

A prospective juror gazing out of this town's only federal courtroom might have seen, framed in a single fanlight window, the snapshot symbolism of what the Earth First! environmental movement has been about: a live oak tree and an electric pole, almost side by side. Ten years and barely 170 miles from where Earth First! announced its arrival in 1981, unfurling a 100-yard black plastic streamer down the face of Glen Canyon Dam to look like a deep crack, four Earth First!

I question your decision to prominently feature (Page Stegner's) review of David Foreman's book, "Confessions of an Eco-Warrior," in the March 10 Book Review. If his biocentrist philosophy were implemented, it would bring about mass deaths through the dismantling of our industrial means of production. It would be more fitting to classify Foreman as an eco-terrorrist. He and his organization Earth First! have maliciously carried out acts of sabotage against private property, and the attention afforded to him in your newspaper only serves to encourage such acts.

The much-publicized gap between the Korean-American and African-American communities narrowed a notch or two last week when a group of South Bay African-American youths spent some time with an entertainer variously known as "the Korean Michael Jackson," "the Korean Bobby Brown" and "the Korean LL Cool J." Although initially skeptical, by the end of the day the local youths had to admit that, yeah, the Korean guy can dance. "He's cool," C. J.
