The faint smell of smoke hangs in the air--traces of wildfires in the mountains to the west--and wisps form a fuzzy halo around the football stadium lights. As the West Rowan Falcons prepare to take the field in a high-stakes game against Central Cabarrus--a victory will give them their first conference championship--senior linebacker James Francis carries more on his shoulders than just his shoulder pads. Sadness hovers around him like the smoke in the air.

To the Editor: My Irish is up! Kevin Starr's glowing review (Book Review, June 22) of Msgr. Francis J. Weber's biography of the "New York Irishman," Cardinal McIntyre, causes this New York Irish person to marvel at the ignorance concerning the history of the civil rights struggle in Los Angeles and the role of Catholics. Like the cardinal, I came to California in the 1950s and received a Catholic education during his reign. When I graduated in 1960 from Immaculate Heart College, I assumed my first position as a teacher at Markham Junior High School in Watts, prepared to act upon the social teachings of my church.

But can Violeta and Corazon deliver? Both women continuously put the blame for their countries' woes on their predecessors, Daniel Ortega and Ferdinand Marcos, and offer no meaningful solutions other than "have faith in God."
