Central Santiago sparkled Wednesday. Among towering skyscrapers and well-kept streets, businessmen, young locals and tourists lounged at cafes and bars. Malls attracted shoppers and public transportation operated normally. There was virtually no indication that one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded swept the region just four days ago. But it was a different story on the city's outskirts. Buildings, roads and bridges were damaged, and basic services came to a halt for several days.

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood. How deeply Jewish is Hollywood?

More than 2,000 mourners in Santiago, Chile, turned the funeral of Matilde Urrutia, widow of 1971 Nobel Literature Prize-winner Pablo Neruda, into a demonstration against President Augusto Pinochet's military government. The mourners repeatedly chanted anti-government slogans to protest the state of siege imposed by Pinochet two months ago to curb unrest. They also chanted in support of the outlawed Communist Party. Neruda, who died in 1973, was a leading member of the party.
