Operators of a nonprofit charity that aids the homeless knew they would face a major decision when donated detergent and toothpaste began clogging the aisles of their Bell warehouse. Either Los Angeles-based Shelter Partnership would have to stop accepting some goods or move to another location around the corner. In retrospect, says warehouse director Jeff Schaffer, there wasn't much of a choice. "We just outgrew the old space," he said. "The volume of donations was that good."

Hooray! Someone wrote an article, not just a letter, about the awful RTD service. I don't think the average bus rider has the ambition to write a letter; riders are too tired from standing in buses or waiting for one. There is a printed sign in all buses that says it is unlawful to stand in the stairwell. Most of the drivers don't seem to pay attention to it.

An ad campaign bannered across the sides of thousands of buses nationally--including hundreds in Los Angeles--seeks to remind Americans that there is still a war to be fought at home. Within the next week, signs on the sides of about 400 RTD buses in Los Angeles will carry the message "Homelessness Happens." The ads, which feature color portraits of three homeless people, list a $2-toll phone number that people who want to help can dial: 1-900-CAN-U-GIVE.

Challenging long-time estimates that there are 50,000 to 70,000 homeless in Los Angeles County, a nonprofit group Thursday released a study, based for the first time on local government welfare statistics, that puts the population at 100,000 to 160,000. Paul S. Tepper, an official of Shelter Partnership, a well-known technical support group for shelters and homeless programs, said the new figures "are far in excess of what we've seen before."

Love is just like a faucet It turns off and on Sometimes when you think it's on, baby It has turned off and gone --Lyrics by Billie Holiday Lyrics like those from the early '40s classic "Fine and Mellow" epitomize what Willie Dixon calls "the wisdom of the blues"--the emotion-drenched music that confronts joy and pain with equal propensity.

It's approaching midnight as Kevin Lamar Evans is maneuvered in an L.A. County wheelchair into the forensic inpatient unit of the mammoth Twin Towers jail--a banal brown behemoth of postmodern prison architecture that stands like an unwelcoming sentinel on the eastern fringes of downtown Los Angeles. Just 4 years old, Twin Towers is a vast improvement over the old, dungeon-like Men's Central Jail.
