Sure, $550 spread among three City Council candidates is not likely to win any elections. But to Southern California's approximately 750,000 residents with roots in El Salvador, that money--raised for races in Los Angeles and Glendale by Salvadoran Americans--represents a major victory. With it, members of this fast-growing community have staked their claim in local politics, hoping to emerge from obscurity and elect a few of their own.

Months after dubbing out a word in one of its sitcoms after complaints that it was a racial insult, NBC aired a rerun of the episode intact, saying it had initially overreacted to minority activists who were offended when a Latina character was called a "tamale." In the Dec. 7 repeat of the "Will & Grace" episode, a character named Karen calls her Salvadoran maid, Rosario, a tamale.
OPINION
May 21, 2005
Re "L.A. Violence Crosses the Line," May 15: I have just finished reading the article about Mara Salvatrucha gang violence. It comes as no surprise that extremely violent criminals find California a virtual utopia where they can operate freely with minimal risk. This is the result of a weak and misguided criminal justice system that refuses to acknowledge the need for a prompt and dramatic expansion of capital punishment, an increase in victims' rights and a sharp curtailment of the rights of convicted violent criminals.
