OPINION
September 26, 1993
As Errol Smith stated so eloquently, "Call Out the Guard to Put the Lid on L.A. Crime" (Commentary, Sept. 15), indeed! Los Angeles possesses a level of violence that is unparalleled in any other nation that is presumably "at peace." The numbers of deaths, injuries, etc., and the proliferation of military assault weaponry make clear that this is a full-fledged regional conflict of the sort for which military intervention has traditionally been deemed appropriate; it is far beyond the capacity of law enforcement alone.

We applaud Peter King's Swiftian aim at political leaders' conviction that impending economic doom results when corporations threaten to leave, or do leave, California (On California, Aug. 24). History shows that California's greatness came on the heels of freewheeling entrepreneurs. The energy driving the resurgence of California comes from small, streamlined, growing businesses, just as has historically been the case. The only significant difference is that many of these are mostly owned by women and minorities.

Jose Miranda hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to break a 4-4 tie and give the Cal State Northridge baseball team a 6-4 victory over the University of San Diego in a nonconference game Tuesday at Northridge. The home run, which caromed off the top of the scoreboard in right field, was Miranda's 10th of the season. But it was only the last and most damaging of the four among the Matadors' nine hits.

A man accused of the 1995 slaying of a 12-year-old Little Leager as the boy stepped off a bus in Altadena was convicted Monday of second-degree murder, Pasadena district attorney's officials said. Errol D. Smith, 26, will be sentenced next month for the March 1995 slaying of Justin Richard, an Altadena seventh-grader who was struck by a stray bullet. Jurors deliberated for a day after a weeklong trial in which Smith's attorney's had argued self-defense.
