One is Chinese-American, exasperated by delays in government aid since the riots destroyed his small Los Angeles shopping center. The other is Korean-American, concerned for his safety even if he rebuilds his Compton grocery store. Joseph T. Kung and Jin H. Lee probably never would have met, if not for the riots. But Sunday they stood side by side seeking signatures on a petition calling for better government programs to aid riot victims.

Korean-American merchants were pelted with ink bottles, thumbtacks and other office supplies tossed out of City Hall windows Tuesday as they protested for a 17th day over the way government officials have treated them since the riots. Seven people were slightly injured, according to Los Angeles police, including a 3-year-old child who was hit in the head by a tack. Several adults were cut when small glass bottles of red, black and white ink slammed against the pavement and shattered.

It is a thrilling sight; in places like this, Americans created the skyscraper city. But as you drive closer you see windows dark or boarded or broken, and sooty facades and deserted doorways. Suddenly, you are not approaching a skyscraper city. You are whistling past a skyscraper graveyard.
