When the Rev. David Hall dons his robe and steps to the pulpit, he delivers the Word with a passion that has fortified his parishioners for years. But now, threatened with losing his career, the leader of Ventura's Trinity Lutheran Church is spending a lot of time talking about healing. A controversy over allegations of inappropriate behavior by the pastor has shaken the 1,000-member congregation. Worshipers are leaving, an associate pastor plans to resign and a possible lawsuit looms.

Talk radio listeners may know him only as a character on the Phil Hendrie show--maybe a real person, maybe not--who provides a regular foil for the outrageous host. But few probably know how much David Hall has shaped what they're hearing.

After studying Vice President Al Gore's economic plan, revealed to the public Sept. 6, I was left wondering where the "plan" part was. He gave us his "wish list" but failed to tell us specifically how he would accomplish these very lofty and admirable goals. While calling George W. Bush's plan a risky and vague "scheme," he failed to provide the details of his own exceedingly optimistic, government-led agenda, as if just hoping that his own plan will work makes it more realistic. I guess that's what we should expect from members of the administration, who can't explain what they did the last eight years to trigger a recovery that began the year before they took office.

Costa Mesa's David Hall is tired of being labeled. He's tired of the stares he gets when he rolls by people. Mandatory "wheelchair glances" he calls them. He just wants to be recognized as an athlete. He wants his talent on the tennis court to do the talking. Hall, who 10 years ago had both legs amputated just above the knee after an accident, is the defending U.S. Open wheelchair tennis champion in singles and doubles, and one of the top-ranked players in the world.
