So, after five years on the trauma team assisting doctors, Baca helped the hospital open a new, unusual ER--the Earn Respect gang intervention program. "These kids used to come rolling in here like they were frequent fliers," said Baca, who turned in his stethoscope to be the program's coordinator.

Waves wash a baby's body to shore in Malibu. A woman near Tustin discovers a newborn child, still alive, in a small cardboard box among bushes outside her front door. A tiny body is found in a trash bin in Santa Ana. And on. And on. We do not know their stories. We know only that these babies were not unwanted, for there are many who would eagerly adopt them and give them homes. But the journey of many children ends before they arrive in arms waiting to cradle them. And keep them.

A rare November tornado destroyed homes as it ripped through at least two central Illinois towns Sunday, as authorities moved quickly to respond. There were reports of some three-dozen injuries and residents were said to be trapped in the wreckage. In Tazewell County, Ill., county spokeswoman Sara Sparkman told The Times that there were “whole neighborhoods where there's nothing left” in the towns of Washington and Pekin. “We have heard of minor injuries," Sparkman said, an assessment echoed by county emergency personnel immediately after the twister, which uprooted trees and power lines while smashing homes into rubble.
