Re "President Obama doesn't have a 'pastor problem,'" Perspective, April 4 Thanks to Robin Abcarian for her excellent analysis of the sermon preached on Easter Sunday at St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington with President Obama in attendance. She is so right about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's former longtime pastor, not being "entirely wrong" in condemning America for its poor treatment of minorities. He wasn't off message; he simply spoke to the American culture that he knew so well.

JERUSALEM - Thousands of people gathered at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem's Old City on Saturday for the lighting of the “holy fire,” an annual ritual marking the Christian belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion. The Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem battled his way through crowds shortly after midday to enter the church's small chapel, where what is believed to be Jesus' tomb is located. Minutes later, the pilgrims inside the small basilica cheered as he emerged carrying two lit bundles of 33 candles each symbolizing the age of Jesus at the time of his death.

In the search for a teenage hiker lost in Orange County's backcountry, things were beginning to look grim. It had been five days since she went missing. The terrain, steep ravines with 10-foot-high brush, hindered rescue efforts and thwarted helicopters armed with infrared cameras. When searchers found her companion, dehydrated and exhausted, he said they'd become separated and he hadn't seen her recently. But on Thursday, Kyndall Jack's voice secured her rescue. The 18-year-old's frantic screams from a cliff in the Trabuco Canyon area caught the attention of a search team and led to a protracted and dramatic rescue.
