The present only seems to be bright in the garish glow of the Las Vegas Strip, and the future really has Chris Webster worried. Curfew started for local teen-agers an hour ago, but they are just beginning to appear, cruising by Circus Circus casino in shiny cars with blaring music, hanging out with friends and laughing at tourists with active cameras. "See all the cars going up and down the strip?" asks a cold and bored Webster, 18, as he loiters with friends outside McDonald's.

There were 744,000 homeless people in the United States in 2005, according to the first national estimate in a decade. A little more than half of them were living in shelters, and nearly a quarter were chronically homeless, according to a report released Wednesday by the National Alliance to End Homelessness, an advocacy group. A majority of the homeless were single adults, but about 41% were in families, the report says.

For Orange County's new bishop, the biggest shock is the freeway. "I understand people do get around somehow, but I don't know how," Bishop Norman F. McFarland told reporters in a visit to diocesan headquarters in Orange Monday. "I'm used to driving and not seeing another car for an hour. It's something that excites me--driving a little over 55 miles per hour."

Whale of a rescue Last week in this space, we profiled Joan Venette, who spends her mornings atop the Palos Verdes Peninsula, monitoring the movements and behavior of whales as they pass through the San Pedro Channel. As I sat with her, I couldn't help but marvel at how free the leviathans are, and how good life must be for them. But then I got home and reality struck as abruptly as 30 tons of breeching blubber.

Gloria and Melvin Perry both work. She serves up burgers and fries at a fast-food restaurant. He doles out meals part-time in a kitchen for the homeless. But they can't afford a place to live. "Sometimes we have jobs, sometimes we don't," said 40-year-old Gloria Perry, whose husband, 50, checks the want ads but isn't qualified for most of the offerings. "The thing is, it doesn't seem to make much difference," she said. "Even when we have jobs, we can't do much but survive."
