Golf, even among total strangers, can turn into harsh competition. But when you pit brothers against each other on a golf course, you're virtually begging for an explosion of a magnitude that might produce a mushroom cloud. Jeff and Rob Leonard played against each other last weekend for the club championship at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana. These are some of the things you might have expected: On the first tee, Jeff places a live wasp in Rob's ear during his backswing.

The arrest of two Legal Aid Foundation paralegals by county law enforcement officers has brought more acrimony to a three-year battle over how much help legal advocates can give the poor who are seeking welfare aid. Legal Aid lawyers contend that the arrests--made in February in the Echo Park welfare office--violated a 1989 court order protecting the rights of Legal Aid to be in welfare offices helping the poor.

Charles Johnson arrived at the boarded-up duplex on West 17th Place with only the layered clothes on his back and a bag he stitched together, stuffed with notebooks of poetry he has written about his life on the streets.
