About 300 shouting anti-Communist protesters tried to dissuade concert-goers from attending a Sunday afternoon performance intended to raise money to send to Vietnam for orphans and other children in need. Amid pushing and shoving, the protesters contended that funds raised by the event would be channeled through the Communist Vietnamese government, meaning there is no guarantee it will reach targeted orphans and ill children.

Twenty-one war orphans left for Vietnam to commemorate the 30th anniversary of "Operation Babylift," in which 3,000 Vietnamese children were airlifted to the United States at the end of the Vietnam War. Atlanta-based World Airways arranged to fly the adoptees to Vietnam. As Saigon was falling in early April 1975, a World Airways flight took off under cover of night with 57 children on board. Thousands more children followed in the next few weeks.

It is Thursday morning and Assemblyman Dennis Brown is once again of the Legislature but not in it. His desk is empty while his colleagues, milling around the ornate Assembly chamber, wrap up another week of public business by voting on a handful of bills before hastily deserting the Capitol for a weekend in their respective districts.

The latest chapter in the extraordinary life of Ly Tong began in September when the former South Vietnam air force fighter pilot and one-time Orange County resident hijacked a commercial plane over Ho Chi Minh City and tossed out 50,000 leaflets calling for the overthrow of the Communist regime. The naturalized U.S. citizen then parachuted to the ground and was promptly arrested.
