If you could pick one photograph that tells the story of Africa, what would that photo show? Would it try to capture the origin of humanity, wildlife, famine, despair, genocide? Would it try to juxtapose sorrow and political corruption, incredible wealth against incredible poverty, birth against death by AIDS, the ugliness of war or the simple beauty of a land called the first and last place on Earth?

Filing for Nov. 7 school board elections in the San Gabriel Valley closed last week with three districts--Hacienda La Puente, Mountain View and South Pasadena--tying for the biggest field of candidates, drawing eight candidates each. In South Pasadena, where there was a brief teachers' strike last fall and the narrow defeat of a school tax measure in June, three incumbents--Ellen Hervey, Yvonne Pine and Joan Sturkie--decided against seeking reelection, leaving the field wide open.

A former teacher who 15 years ago led his Los Angeles colleagues in a five-week strike is seeking a second term on the board that governs the Claremont Unified School District, where he was an adversary of teachers during a recent strike. An administrator for the Riverside Unified School District who sends his child to a parochial school in Pomona wants to be on the Pomona Unified School District board because, he said, "I feel strongly about public schools."

When the California lottery was proposed last year as a way to help finance education, the Claremont School Board was indignant, expressing its moral opposition in no uncertain terms: "The funding of the public schools should not be dependent upon the propensity of citizens to gamble," the board said in a unanimous resolution. But a little more than a year later, hard times had forced board members to reconsider.

Believe me, this has been the most fantastic America's Cup of all. OK OK, I know . . . . The arguing. The bad blood. The once and future court appearances. The rest of the world left out. Never mind all that. It has been fantastic . . . . Period. And, if the committees and designers and owners and syndicates and sponsors will just keep their paws off it over the next few weeks, the Cup as we now see it will be just fine.

If you had been watching more closely, the subtle but unmistakable signs were everywhere. Vintage 100% nylon parachute pants are for sale on the Internet, and designers' fall lines were full of acid-wash denim and '80s-style neon colors.
