Wet Seal Inc., which has spent the last two years trying to regain its footing, will turn to a Superior Court judge today for a hand. The retailer is scheduled to ask the judge to protect its trade secrets and help stem the flow of employees to a rival chain-store operator. Certainly, Wet Seal needs an assist. The company, based in Foothill Ranch, is in one of the most turbulent segments of retailing: Selling clothes to trend-hungry teenage girls and young women.

Kotkin says that the RAND Corp. study indicates that Latinos commit crimes at rates slightly lower than blacks or whites. However, most, if not all, of L.A.'s Hispanic barrios are littered with ugly, intimidating gang graffiti made by the violent street youth that inhabit those neighborhoods. I have spent more than two dozen Saturdays helping paint over the graffiti. After growing up in mostly white neighborhoods where this type of behavior was virtually unheard of, I deeply resent this low-class aspect of Hispanic culture.

Laura Black came home to find a letter wedged in her door. Hand-lettered across the front was a warning, "You'd better read this." She knew who it was from, an unwanted suitor named Richard Farley. Black had told him she did not want to see him, but he pursued her, confronted her, harassed her--at work and at home. She moved and he found her. She got an unlisted telephone number so he called her at work. She asked her employer to stop him from loitering near her car and he moved across the street.
