President-elect George W. Bush has summoned leading Latino evangelical Jesse Miranda along with 19 national religious figures to Austin, Texas, for a meeting Wednesday on how to increase faith-based, government-funded social services. "There are areas where [religion and government] don't conflict but work great together," Miranda said. "There are issues behind the pulpit, and there are issues on the street corner. At the street corner, that's where we have a lot in common."

As a devout, disinterested sports imbecile, I was enthralled with J.R. Moehringer's article about the Boston Red Sox and their former physician, Dr. Bill Morgan ("The Red Sox's Bloodiest Day," July 10). But then again, the article was really about the human spirit. I think those corporate white shirts did Dr. Morgan a favor by firing him. He was meant for a higher calling. As a medical care provider, I'm only too happy to hear of a doctor in the public sector who is so devoted to his patients.

Ricky Quiles never really got a square shot at Naty Luna in the main event Thursday night at the Irvine Marriott. Thanks to a series of round-house punches, Quiles won a unanimous decision by scores of 80-72, 80-72 and 79-73 in the lightweight bout. Luna spent most of the eight rounds standing sideways and bent over in a defensive crouch. Luna even took to turning his back when Quiles tried to move inside.

Gary Friedman's photo essay ("The Long Year of Rescue 5," Sept. 1) was moving and timely, and it brought home the horror of Sept. 11, 2001. As someone who was born and raised on Staten Island, I felt this was a tribute to those who perished from my hometown. I watched the towers fall from 3,000 miles away and was hysterical, not knowing where my family and friends were. I may or may not have known those men, but I know the sorrow. They were my brothers, and it easily could have been my blood.

Barack Obama, driven in large part by anger toward Republican immigration policies, according to a poll released Thursday. Latinos overall represent about 6% of U.S. voters. Protestant Latinos -- about a third of all Latinos -- heavily supported Bush's reelection.

About 450 relatives and friends of Joe Louis Avila, a restaurateur who was gunned down in his car last week, attended prayer services Monday at the South Coast Community Church in Irvine. "I was shocked by the news of Joe passing away. It's not easy, especially in the way it happened," said Jesse Miranda, who is superintendent of the Latin-American District Assemblies of God in La Habra and a family friend. "However, I'm glad to tell you he is in a good place.

In some Catholic parishes it's a bigger day than Christmas or Easter: the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Beginning well before dawn, worshipers today will gather to celebrate the brown-skinned mother of Jesus who, legend says, appeared before a poor Mexican peasant in 1531. But the celebration isn't just for Catholics anymore.

No fewer than 14 bullets, fired in a narrow swath, struck the Porsche that Joe Luis Avila was driving shortly after midnight on May 8, killing the man prosecutors once called the mastermind of the drug-smuggling "Tahiti Connection." Although Avila was never tried on that 1977 indictment--procedural error by prosecutors led a judge to dismiss the charge--officials were quick to link his death to that past.
