The city's main library will remain closed through Sunday while officials work to dry an area damaged by water--a "Niagara Falls" that threatened to destroy thousands of books. Vandals first broke the sprinkling system atop the library's roof--which serves as a park--on Friday; they struck again on Saturday. The second time, water gushed out "just like Niagara Falls," library Director Cordelia Howard said.

THE ODOR OF PORK in homeland security funding has diminished since the first distribution to states and localities. Three years ago, much was rightly made of the fact that the least per capita homeland security funding went to California ($1.33) and New York ($1.38), while Vice President Dick Cheney's home state of Wyoming got $9.78. This illogical disparity has shrunk, but it's not gone.

A wrong-way driver who killed himself and four others in a fiery Long Beach crash was using a car he had just stolen from his mother when he plowed head-on into a family, police said Monday. Chanvatana (Scott) Soth, a 21-year-old security guard, is also suspected of burglarizing his mother's home hours before the Saturday night crash. Long Beach police said he apparently panicked at the sight of a patrol car and, in speeding away, went down the wrong side of Spring Street for a mile.
