A community coalition formed after the Dodger Stadium beating of Bryan Stow called Thursday for a government audit of the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control because the agency has not issued a citation at the ballpark since the 1990s. "It seems like they're just ignoring the problem," Richard Zaldivar, who launched the coalition, said of the ABC's response to growing complaints about drunken hooliganism at the stadium. The Times reported last month that the ABC, the authority that enforces alcohol-licensing rules, last cited a Dodger vendor for a violation in 1999.

Eddie Gonzales loves everything about his Mexican American roots, with one exception. He hates machismo, that domineering male attitude that is winked at by Latino traditions and culture. It can be the bane of lesser souls. When confronted with something unpleasant, the typical macho reaction is to steamroll it, or to ignore it. That's why Eddie hasn't told his father that he is HIV-positive. He's kept the truth from him for four years.
