When the city's founders named the streets of Anaheim, women were not overlooked. For instance, Adele, Alberta, Claudina, Emily, Mavis, Pauline, Sabina and Wilhelmina streets all honor early pioneer women in this town founded by German immigrants. One of Anaheim's original settlers, Clementine Langenberger, was the inspiration for Clementine Street. And Helena Street was named for Langenberger's close friend, prominent Polish actress Helena Modjeska.

Chicago Cardinal Francis George asked Father Michael Pfleger to take a leave to "reflect on his recent statements" regarding New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her bid for the White House. During a guest sermon at Sen. Barack Obama's former church last week, Pfleger mocked Clinton, saying she felt entitled to the Democratic nomination for president. Pfleger's comments, along with past controversial statements by Trinity United Church of Christ's former longtime pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., led Obama to resign his membership.

Director-screenwriter Philip Kaufman certainly can't be faulted for choosing easy source material. His last film was an adaptation of Tom Wolfe's "The Right Stuff." Now he's taken on "The Unbearable Lightness of Being," the fragmented, multilayered novel-of-ideas by emigre Czech author Milan Kundera. (Selected theaters.) As usual, Kaufman has made a fine-looking film.

If we only had a couch to take "The Talking Cure." It's apropos not only because Christopher Hampton's play, now at the Mark Taper Forum, features founding figures of psychoanalysis: Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and their sometime protege Sabina Spielrein. A couch seat also suits Hampton's reverent, simplistic portrait of these pioneers, which comes off as the sort of studied, speechifying docudrama for which cable television was meant.
October 26, 1997 | Sandra Cisneros, Sandra Cisneros, a novelist and poet, is the author of "The House on Mango Street" and "Loose Woman."
'Mi'ja, it's me. Call me when you wake up." It was a message left on my phone machine from a friend. But when I heard that word "mi'ja," a pain squeezed my heart. My father was the only one who ever called me this. Because his death is so recent, the word overwhelmed me and filled me with grief. With my father's death, the thread that links me to my other self, to my other language, was severed.
February 12, 1989 | MARGO KAUFMAN, Margo Kaufman is a contributing editor of this magazine.
THIS year, give her a valentine she'll never forget," reads an ad for a diamond- and ruby-studded bracelet. I shake my head sadly. So far, my three-year campaign to convince my husband that Valentine's Day is not just a merchandising ploy dreamed up by florists has been totally unrewarding. My friend Sabina says that I can easily train my mate to give me a gift. "All mates have to be trained," she insists.
This weekend's "Revolucion '94" concerts are a groundbreaking attempt to bridge the gap between rock en espanol --rock with Spanish lyrics--and U.S. alternative rock. "Living in L.A., I think it's very evident that we have to understand each other's cultures more," said concert organizer Marusa Reyes, the manager of the four Mexican bands on the concerts, which will be Friday at the Open Air Theatre in San Diego and Saturday at the Universal Amphitheatre. Both shows start at 6 p.m.
