Is there a dry-cleaning store in Los Angeles without a celebrity's picture hanging on the wall? A deli without a glossy of David Soul wishing someone "All the best"?

When the T-shirt by Madonna fetched a bid of $4,200 and the Hanes-ala-Liz went for $4,000, the crowd was impressed. Northern Lights Alternatives, a small AIDS service agency, seemed to have struck gold last December with its novel auction of 175 extra-large Hanes T-shirts decorated by the Hollywood glitterati. But four months later, Northern Lights has shut down its Los Angeles operations because of financial troubles.

The conversation began: "Mr. Edwards? I'm Morgan Fairchild; I'm a great fan of yours." With that, the diminutive actress introduced herself to the male half of the shoe-designing team of Susan Bennis and Warren Edwards. He was at Neiman Marcus to launch the duo's first boutique outside their New York shop. Fairchild pulled a turquoise moccasin from a tote bag and pointed to a small hole. "My bunny took a bite out of it. He's very fond of your shoes," she explained.

As the region's first AIDS organizations mark their 10th anniversaries, recession and "charitable Darwinism" are beginning to take their toll on the crowded AIDS services landscape in Los Angeles County.

Because I don't know that. --Dr. Neil Schram, Kaiser internist Like Dr.
