At a 1986 gala honoring feminists, Gloria Steinem described Joan Palevsky, aptly and simply, as a "woman of resources." Drawing from a considerable fortune, Palevsky contributed to a long list of individuals and organizations in the city, and to "every progressive woman candidate in the state and nation," one friend said. Such generosity led Steinem to praise Palevsky in front of an audience at the Beverly Hills Hotel as the first woman philanthropist to use her means to support feminist issues.

There is always something in the Los Angeles Times Magazine that interests me, but the Nov. 6 issue was a particular joy, beginning with "Duet With a Diva," by James McCourt. No singer has given me as much pleasure as Victoria de los Angeles in the many recitals I attended here and in New York during the '60s and '70s. Then the article about Jim Wallis was fascinating. To read about a man who practices justice and tolerance was especially wonderful after the recent dismal political campaigns.

UCLA paid "slightly less" than the $1.

OPINION
September 25, 1988
George Skelton's front-page article "The Times Poll: Presidential Nominees in 47%-47% Dead Heat" was discouraging (Sept. 14). That the most often expressed opinion of partisans of both candidates was "he's a nice man" gives some idea about how informed a portion (perhaps a large portion) of the electorate is as to who is going to lead all of us for the next four years. Let them stay away from the ballot box unless they do their homework! As a citizen who will certainly vote and who knows now for whom she will vote, I found it puzzling that Skelton did not address the results of one of the questions asked in the poll: "Do you think George Bush has told lies about the Iran-Contra affair, or not?"

The second presidential debate is over and maybe it's just as well. We learned very little about what each candidate would actually do if elected. No issue of substance was discussed in any detail. Instead, we were treated to the photogenic qualities of each man. We had a choice between expansive gestures and tight chopping hand motions. I do have a preference between the two men, but as far as television goes, the voters will have to choose between a whiner and a droner. Television is not the only culprit.
