Re "Roots of anger," Current, Jan. 7 Tanya K. Hernandez's piece is filled with sweeping generalizations and accusations. She is way off when she refers to the killings and assaults by Latino gang members on unsuspecting African Americans as a "Latino ethnic cleansing of African Americans from multiracial neighborhoods." The people who are committing these horrendous acts are not representative of the Latino community. These delinquents are gang members. It is mind-boggling that Hernandez came up with the ignorant conclusion that the entire Latino culture is to blame.

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.

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)

With his hair tousled and aviator sunglasses resting on a table, Matt Bristol seemed like your typical Angeleno on a recent afternoon for lunch in Brentwood. But Bristol is a cast member on the TLC series “Breaking Amish: Los Angeles,” which dropped him in Venice Beach, a long way - literally and figuratively - from his home in Lancaster County, Penn., where he lives as a Mennonite. “Breaking Amish: Los Angeles” premiered on July 21 to about 2 million viewers. The series is a spinoff from "Breaking Amish: New York,” which followed five young adults (four Amish, one Mennonite)

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.
