At the private New Roads School in Santa Monica, 20 families decided not to re-enroll in the fall because of financial nervousness. At Loyola High School near downtown, 40 families have come forward since the beginning of the school year seeking financial aid to help cover tuition costs, even as the school's endowment -- heavily invested in equities -- has taken a battering in the financial market.

Twenty-three years ago, for barely 24 hours, Nelson Mandela visited Los Angeles. It was 1990, and he had been a free man for only a handful of months, but he had been a symbol for years -- of endurance, of the black-and-white apartheid battle in South Africa. He was not yet a Nobel Peace Prize co-winner, not yet the president of the new post-apartheid South Africa. But in his 10 days in the United States, he was welcomed at the White House by President George H.W. Bush. Vice President Dan Quayle called him “a symbol of freedom.” A joint session of Congress gave him 15 standing ovations in a 33-minute speech.

I often lament have left Los Angeles, my hometown, to live in San Francisco, especially now that I have a son. After Kai was born, we found ourselves making the trek up and down Interstate 5 at least once a month. On our third not-so-pleasant jaunt past the sea of cows, Kai began screaming and would not stop. Yearning for somewhere fabulous to stop so we could cuddle him without the stench of manure and diesel, we vowed to start taking the nice way. Three years later (after chalking up more than 100,000 miles)

Re "To some, care facility is too close to home," May 7 It is sad that many people in Los Angeles think they have a right to dictate who lives near them, and it is shameful that our elected leaders listen to demands that old people, sick people and disabled people live "someplace else. " How is this not segregation? As a disabled person, it weighs heavily on me that some insist they have a right to be screened from living in a community with me. Still, I pity these people.
