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.

Shortly after he arrived in Los Angeles in 1893 to establish a medical practice, Dr. Peter Janss had a hunch that real estate development would be far more lucrative than mending bones. He was right. With his two sons, he formed the Janss Investment Corp. and over three generations the family business developed an estimated 90,000 acres of Southern California property.

Los Angeles, more than most cities, has defined itself by continual bursts of expansion and an unflagging optimism about its place in the world. But as the city has grown to a population nearing 4 million, we've neglected some major holes in the civic fabric. Los Angeles has become as well known for its high-profile architectural and urban-planning failures - for the buildings, institutions and public spaces we can't seem to get right - as for its innovations or breakthroughs. This is particularly true for our civic architecture, which has never matched the ambition and allure of the region's private houses and high-end commercial enclaves.

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.
