Less than half a mile away from the Ronald Wilson Reagan Presidential Library, and wedged within an innocuous Simi Valley housing tract that boasts a parade of cheerful two-story townhouses, a one-man, cottage-industry revolution presses onward. At the end of a cul-de-sac, mild-mannered Jordan Jones, bespectacled editor of razor-edged Bakunin magazine, cranks out his perfect-bound, indisputably left-of-center journal in the Spartan rooms of, he likes to joke, his "ancestral manse."

Re "Gang calls off racial turf war," Jan. 17 Is law and order so passe in Los Angeles that criminal gangs believe they can dictate terms of a truce? I expect an equally absurd response from the L.A. City Council. One reason kids are joining gangs is the sense of empowerment. If the city negotiates for a pragmatic truce, it will only enhance the power of gangs in Los Angeles and make them more popular. These are not legitimate organizations. They are criminal entities and must be treated as such.

After Anaheim Servite had held off Mission Hills Alemany, 28-21, Saturday night in a Pac-5 Division semifinal game at Cerritos College, there was agreement by both sides that in defeat, Alemany quarterback Vernon Adams was simply marvelous. "I think he's a darn good player," Servite Coach Troy Thomas said. Adams rushed for 153 yards and completed 19 of 34 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns. But Servite (13-0) made the big plays when it counted to earn a spot in next Saturday's Pac-5 final against Mission Viejo (13-0)

Defending Pac-5 Division champion Anaheim Servite sent a message Thursday in its season opener against Oceanside that the toughness and intensity seen during its 2009 championship season are back. The Friars forced four first-half turnovers and six overall in rolling to a 31-7 victory over Oceanside at Orange Coast College. It was the first time two defending state bowl winners had met in a season opener, with Oceanside having won the Division I bowl and Servite the Division II champion.
