Census takers on Friday went into the fields of northern San Diego County at dawn to recount migrant workers, but the effort drew criticism from homeless advocates, who said they were "suspicious" of the results because the Census Bureau provided no advance notice. Despite the skepticism, census officials proclaimed that they now had a "quality count" of the migrants.

When radio talk show host Stacy Taylor suggested to listeners here that they attach bumper stickers to their cars saying, "Islam Is Lame," it was just another instance of what many Iranians living in the area say is gross insensitivity and prejudice toward them. Taylor, who works for station KSDO, said in an interview that he has no apologies for broadcasting the remark recently, saying he felt "some smart entrepreneur" could make a million dollars on the idea.

Lawrence wanted something more elemental, more quintessentially Californian. So she headed for Black's Beach. The 21-year-old North Carolina native has not been disappointed. Lawrence said she feels right at home whiling away sunny summer days at the legendary nude sunbathing spot tucked beneath the towering coastal cliffs north of La Jolla.
