Like a prosecutor eager to share damning evidence, state Rep. George E. Terwilleger shoves a grainy Polaroid across his desk. Angelenos might strain their eyes trying to spot some irregularity in this shot of a government building and a placard reading, "Department of Human Services-- El Departamento de Servicios Humanos. " But Terwilleger sees such signs of the times as proof of multicultural chaos to come.

The agreement ends an intense battle for the nation's leading tire maker that became the focus of a congressional hearing earlier this week, and of anti-takeover legislation in Ohio, Goodyear's home state.

"A few miles from here, Congress is in the final stages of a fateful debate about the future of health insurance in America," Obama told his audience.

The narrow, saloon-dotted Main Street, just two blocks long, is a shabby reminder that this gold-rush town was never a symbol of Midwestern wholesomeness.

Calamity Jane, a "soiled dove" of the Old West, plied her trade here in the 1870s. Illegal brothels operated openly on Main Street until 1980.
