Executives said the merger of the parent companies of La Opinion, the dominant Spanish-language daily in Los Angeles, and El Diario/La Prensa, its New York counterpart, was the first step toward building a network of newspapers serving the nation's fastest-growing minority group.

There is no place in the world like Southern California. The region is the nation's leading small-business incubator and home to some of the country's fastest-growing small enterprises. More than 4 million people work for companies with fewer than 500 employees. And our 370,000 home-based businesses are continuing the region's long history of innovation and entrepreneurship. In this marketplace of the new millennium, the key to success lies in working smarter, faster and better.

Re "Foes Find Common Cause Against Gay Rights," Aug. 17: The Rev. Martin Garcia, executive director of the anti-gay La Amistad, is just more of the same: hate-based religious leaders couching their agenda behind mistranslated and confusing Bible passages.

As far as La Opinion printing ads that homosexuals would somehow corrupt children, I think the corruption is perpetuated by holier-than-thou religious agitators.
