I should have suspected. After I finished reading Robert Hilburn's Top 100 Songs of 1985, I was shocked ("The Top Albums: Assessing the Real Pop World," Jan. 19). First of all, I thought the whole list was a joke--reading something written by a "non-existing" music critic.

When Jorge Elias of Reseda saw the overturned police car at the intersection of White Oak Avenue and Sherman Way, his only thought was to help the officers trapped inside the burning vehicle. Elias and his brother, Javier, were among a handful of Good Samaritans who rushed to the accident scene Nov. 4 after a woman driving an Acura ran two red lights and broadsided the patrol car, killing herself and Officer Gabriel Perez-Negron and severely injuring Officer Martin Guerrero.

"Viva Mexico!" went the cry from an outdoor stage at Cal State Northridge on Thursday. "Viva!" came the enthusiastic reply from a few hundred students scattered across the University Student Union for CSUN's first Cinco de Mayo festival. The hearty sound was coming not from a fiery student but from a 7-year-old girl. On stage, singer Tatiana Bolanos danced, gestured and sang with all the fury of a veteran performer as she closed out a three-song set.
