The Albalat family secret began to unravel in the spring of 1982 as 10-year-old Magnolia blossomed from schoolgirl to maturity. Other girls her age in the predominately Latino and Catholic neighborhood of Huntington Park were studying catechism and picking pretty white dresses for their first Communion. Young Maggie was not allowed to attend Sunday school and had never even been baptized. She wondered why, but no one said.

I fully agree with the President of NOW. President-elect Clinton didn't appoint enough women, Afro-Americans, Jews, Hispanics, seniors, gays, Asians, labor people, abortionists, anti-abortionists, animal rights people and vegetarians to his Cabinet. It seems that Clinton not only inherited trade and budget deficits, he also created a credibility deficit as special interest groups call in their chits on promises he made to every group he spoke to during his campaign.

I want to erase any misunderstanding of my testimony at the Irvine City Council on Dec. 11, 1990. I then protested the vicious newspaper delivered on Irvine streets targeting blacks, Jews, Hispanics, and the gay community with violent, Nazi hate. Something I said made Mayor Sally Anne Sheridan ask if I meant to suggest that member(s) of the City Council condoned that hate. Of course not. I referred to support by some council member(s) of Measure N, which removed the human rights guarantee to the gay community.

Hatemongers have taken to cable television in a big way, attacking such minority groups as blacks, Jews, Hispanics, Asians and gays in 24 of the nation's 100 largest TV markets, the Anti-Defamation League charged Wednesday. The league issued a report, "Electronic Hate: Bigotry Comes to TV," at the opening of its three-day annual National Commission meeting in New York.

Police are investigating a second incident in which Nazi-type, racist literature was placed in student lockers at Los Alamitos High School. Most of the students have not returned from winter break, but freshman Kasey Riley went to the school to pick up a book and discovered a flyer in her locker. "I couldn't believe what I was seeing," she said. Police Cmdr. Gary Biggerstaff said Tuesday that a search of lockers turned up more than 30 of the flyers, which had a Lincoln, Neb., address.

The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States climbed to a record 1,685 in 1990--the fourth increase in as many years, the Anti-Defamation League said Wednesday. In California, anti-Jewish incidents soared 72%, with Greater Los Angeles home to more than half of the acts committed statewide, according to the annual report by the Jewish organization.

Comedian Bobby Slayton doesn't directly ask you to examine your feelings about racial, ethnic and gender stereotypes, but much of his act ends up forcing you to. And if you know much about comedy, his show Tuesday at the Irvine Improvisation forced you to examine the way he constructed his set. The points are not unrelated. At times, his hourlong performance was wildly unfocused and, probably not coincidentally, the roughest Slayton set we've seen in some time. "Roughest" meaning that all types of folks--Jews, Hispanics, Puerto Ricans, homosexuals, men, women and others--got slammed more vigorously than usual, often with language as raw as you'll ever hear in that room.

Israel's attorney general on Sunday rejected the citizenship claim of an American teenager wanted for murder in Maryland and said the 17-year-old fugitive can be returned to the United States to stand trial. U.S.-Israeli relations have been strained over the extradition case of Samuel Sheinbein, a high school senior from Silver Spring, Md., who fled to Israel last month to avoid prosecution. Sheinbein and another youth are accused of killing Alfredo Tello Jr.

On Aug. 28, 1963, hundreds of thousands of Americans converged on Washington to demand passage of civil rights legislation, a seminal moment in the long struggle against racism fixed in the nation's memory by Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.
