The four-seat Cessna entered the restricted airspace about 11 a.m. as the president was flying from Orange County to Los Angeles aboard Marine One, a military helicopter provided for his use.

All Baby Tania has left of the last, doomed trip she took with her parents is a straw crucifix that apparently fell out of their car as it plunged 450 feet down a cliff on the California coast. The 16-month-old's rescuer gave her the cross when he realized she was the lone survivor of last Sunday's crash. "She ignored it at first," said Toby Rowland-Jones, "but then she clutched on to it. When she got in the helicopter, she was still clutching it."

Although I am not a gambler, I disagree with the premise forwarded in the June 10 articles by Dave Kindred and Mark Heisler, that people who play sports shouldn't gamble. Until the NBA makes a rule that forbids gambling, the players should be allowed to do what they want with their money. Mr. Kindred states that the amount that Michael Jordan lost is equivalent to a man making $50,000 losing $1,562. Let's get this straight: The man makes $40 million every year. Even if he did lose almost $1 million gambling, he still has about $39 million left.
