Its location on Coast Highway, next to the Balboa overpass, has seen a dozen restaurants come and go in the past two decades.

This racially diverse city's first African American mayor has set off a political storm only days after taking office by complaining of "deep-rooted racism and sexism" in the Police Department. Mayor Terry Johnson's allegation, made first in a speech to an African American civic group in San Diego, prompted City Council members and homeowner groups to defend the Police Department and its reformist chief.

In your July 8 article, "2 Wealthy Conservatives Use Think Tanks to Push Goals," a quote appears from my book "Institutes of Biblical Law." I wrote that one of the tragedies of our century is the cheapening of human life. We are no longer shocked by the death of one individual; we are shocked only by the deaths of millions. In one of the hundreds of books and articles I have written in my 80 years, I quoted an anti-Semitic writer who wrongly argued that the murder of millions of Jews by the Nazis was not as bad as the world believed because it was "only" 1 or 2 million, not 6 million.

Bob Knepper pitched a five-hitter Friday night at Atlanta, and Denny Walling hit a home run and drove in two runs as the Houston Astros continued their domination of the West with a 3-0 victory over the Braves. It was Knepper's 15th victory and his major league-leading fifth shutout this season. He won 15 games each of the two previous seasons, and his high was 17 with San Francisco in 1978. In other seasons, Knepper has been brilliant early but has usually tailed off.

The Look for the coming year? Store buyers from around the world who previewed next year's merchandise got the message: Pay heed to the marriage of alternative music and fashion. Youth-infused counterculture reigns again. The message was delivered at the Action Sports Beach Expo last week, and despite its name, it was no day at the beach for the exhibitors.

Padre pitcher Ed Whitson sat in his locker after a masterful, 7-0 victory Tuesday over the New York Mets and smiled. "They can have those three strikeout innings, I'll take three-pitch innings anytime," Whitson said. "Your arm lasts a lot longer that way." The game, played in front of 23,006 at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, lasted just 2 hours 1 minute. The Padres have now defeated the Mets for the seventh time in nine games this season.
