For more than 20 years, I've been writing about local history, and never once has Southern California let me down. I've found no shortage of tycoons and beggars, dreamy spiritualists, mad-eyed killers. This 227-year-old city has had a few angels, but it's the others who often make for the most fascinating storytelling.

State Sen. Jack Gordon is withdrawing from the race for the late Claude Pepper's U.S. House seat just two days after announcing his candidacy, an aide said today. Gordon, 67, became the first Democrat to enter the race for the seat held by Pepper, a liberal Democrat, since 1962. Aide Mike Petit refused to say why Gordon was withdrawing. Some Democratic leaders had expressed concern that Gordon, a Miami Beach liberal first elected to the state Senate in 1972, would be unable to attract conservative Latino voters needed to win the Aug. 29 election.
