After drugs fell short in helping their patient cope with emotional and mental problems, the three doctors prescribed another therapy for the woman. They suggested she get a dog. So the 52-year-old woman brought Lady, a poodle, into her Anaheim apartment building, which had a ban on dogs. When the landlord complained about Lady, the woman reluctantly took her to a kennel. And then, the woman carved the dog's name into her arm and attempted suicide. While at the kennel, the ailing Lady died.

To others, they were a revolt, a rebellion, an uprising - a violent but justified leap into a future of black self-empowerment.

Question: I just took over the property management job for a 100-unit multistory apartment complex. The previous property manager let the tenants run wild here, and the owner has asked me to shape things up. There are children running all over the place at all hours of the day and night, breaking sprinklers, making noise, skateboarding on the railings, throwing rocks and breaking windows. I would like to establish some rules and regulations to help protect the property, ensure peace and quiet for all the residents, and protect the owner from liability.

William Bradford Reynolds said Friday at a conference marking the 20th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.
