He has become a familiar neighborhood figure, pounding out the miles around the Silver Lake Reservoir, as well as a fixture in the Los Angeles Marathon. Retired Belmont High School counselor Richard Lem had completed all 14 previous Los Angeles marathons, but he did not enter this year's race until a few weeks ago. "I didn't know whether I would be dead or alive," he said, smiling without bitterness.

Re "Man Sought in Shootings of Minorities Kills Self," July 5: My response to the actions of Benjamin Smith was visceral; my stomach tightened up and I felt nauseated. I felt anger and fear and disgust and sadness at the ability of people to still be so hateful and destructive, with so little sense of their own selves that they project all their hate and fear onto others. We all do this to some extent, most of us on small, everyday levels of making ourselves feel better by finding fault with someone else, or not understanding why someone makes us so angry.

The action of its legislators will affect the entire country and will shape the future of the next four years. It happened in 1860, when the election of Abraham Lincoln led South Carolina to secede from the Union. This led to the Civil War. It is happening today in Tallahassee, as Florida's lawmakers prepare to award that state's electoral votes to George W. Bush.
