When I think of South-Central L.A., I think of a room with a child sitting alone, crying and wondering whether or not this would be the last time she breathes a breath. Should anyone have to feel that way, alone, confused, or even uncomprehending of the chaos that was evolving in front of them? Should anyone feel helpless even in their own city? It took two words to destroy a city, it took two words to disrupt life as we know it.

Not so long ago, a journalism foundation surveyed American high school students and found about half believed the government could legally censor the Internet. Three-quarters expressed ambivalence toward the 1st Amendment. More than a third said it went too far in guaranteeing our most basic rights. What's afoot in the land of Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson? We'd like to be nurturing the next Edward R.

They were in the dark, unable to communicate and express their wants and needs. But with the simple touch of a button, their voices are now, figuratively, being heard. About 210 developmentally disabled students are making strides in learning with the aid of some advanced devices at Hope High School in Buena Park, part of the Anaheim Union High School District.

Frederick Wiseman makes films in which patterns and meanings gradually emerge. But a pattern is also emerging in Wiseman's career, and his latest work, "High School II," confirms it. The early Wiseman films, while seemingly removed from their subjects, were considerable social critiques of institutions, from mental hospitals and the welfare system to the meat industry--and public schools, which came off rather badly in Wiseman's 1968 "High School," about Philadelphia's Northeast High.

With apologies to David Letterman, we offer lists detailing what happened in 1988 and, in some cases, how 1988 will impact 1989 . Nine months of winners in San Diego High School sports: 1. January Despite trailing by 2 points with less than 5 seconds to play in both regulation and the first overtime against nationally ranked Camden (N.J.) High, the undefeated Torrey Pines boys' basketball team won, 90-88, in double-overtime Jan. 16 when Kevin Friel hit a 12-footer with 1 second to play.

At Uncle Henry's Smokehouse Bar B Que in Hope, Ark., the lunchtime crowd filled every table Thursday -- all 10 of them. At City Hall, the phones were ringing off the hook. And out at the airport, a private pilot who just turned 45 said she didn't expect to live long enough to see things get back to normal. All because of the latest example of how federal, state and local officials have responded to Hurricane Katrina. Time was, Hope was known primarily as the childhood home of President Clinton.

Thanks to the media, I'm not really sure about L.A. The media have a way of destroying any positive view of the city. It (the media) shows the negative parts and events that have and do shape L.A. But despite the media's perception, some of my family members who live there say it's not as bad as it's painted out to be. Don't get me wrong, it was probably bad during the riots. And I'm sure the racial tension between the many cultural groups there can be felt. But I'm a stranger to L.A.
