Like a lot of people, Gerald Harris loves L.A. Even the jolt of being out of work, out of money and out on the streets makes him no more eager to return to his native New York City. "I'm going to stick it out," said Harris, 40, a graphic arts director who became homeless shortly after arriving in Los Angeles four months ago. "There's no point in going back." Social service workers have discovered that a lot of homeless people share Harris' view.

After a decade of near-record growth, the population of Los Angeles fell 68,000 from 1991 to 1992, the city's largest annual decline and only the third time this century it suffered a net loss of residents over a year, according to population estimates released Friday. City planners said the decline can be linked to continuing economic troubles as well as the riots following the verdicts in the Rodney G. King beating trial last year.

Orlando Canas lifts a trouser leg over his calf and reveals a mottled, scarred section of flesh the size of a quarter, a bullet wound that is a lingering reminder of El Salvador's brutal civil war. Canas left El Salvador because of the war, but he soon became disillusioned with the violence in Los Angeles. For a week during the riots, Canas carried a shotgun and patrolled the roof of the trucking company where he worked.

"Goodby," said my friend Nancy in Seattle, as we were hanging up after one of our rare telephone conversations. "I miss you, and I love you very much." Nancy and I did miss each other. We had met at a party given by my writers' group and hit it off instantly. We were close friends for a couple of years, and though I couldn't argue with her decision to move from Los Angeles to raise her young son in the safer, healthier environment of Washington state, I never wanted her to leave.

Dr. Ross Donald has spent the past 19 years delivering babies for the rich and occasionally famous. But late last month he delivered something else--1,500 letter bombs. "I would like to inform you that as of July 1, I will no longer be practicing here in Santa Monica," he wrote. "I will be moving my family to Ketchum, Idaho. It has been a dream of Kathy's and mine to raise our family in the type of environment offered there."

The Los Angeles Emigre Virtuoso Orchestra is more emigre than virtuoso, as Sunday night's hodgepodge program in Wilshire Ebell Theatre amply demonstrated. Still, under the no-nonsense guidance of music director Armen Garabedian, it's a solid ensemble capable of making its musical points when given the chance. Unfortunately, there wasn't much of a chance. Soloists dominated the evening. Violinist Daniel Shindaryov offered the Violin Concerto No.
