If you have to climb 70, 80 or even 100 or more stairs to reach your doorstep, life takes on inevitable hardships. Pizza deliveries become iffy, at best. A simple chore like taking out the trash becomes a pain in several parts of the anatomy, the rump included. Friends, if they visit at all, show up panting and rubber-legged. "They can barely say hello," says Lois Fletcher, describing life on a street impassable to cars because it consists of just one long, steep stairway.

Carrying banners and chanting "stop the violence," about 85 gay and lesbian activists and other residents marched along Sunset Boulevard through Silver Lake Friday night to protest a wave of gay-bashings and other crimes in the area. At a rally before the march, activists called for increased police protection and for residents to resume community patrols used several years ago to combat a similar outbreak of violence against homosexuals.

For four years, a 1972 Dodge van with its tiny bed has been home to Ralph Smith. A few steps away a man known only as Ed spends his days watching a small portable television in a pickup truck with a camper on top. Behind them, Betty West lives in a trailer with her dog Blondie. This fleet of homes on wheels--which sometimes can grow to 20 or more--is not located in a trailer court.

WHEN Christine Moore left her job as a pastry chef at Les Deux Cafes to stay home with her baby in 1999, she started fiddling around with sugar and fire. Eventually she came up with extraordinary sea salt caramels -- she pushes the salty-sweet balance to the edge -- that are blissfully silky and chewy. Today, dozens of stores around the country carry her Little Flower Candy Co. caramels (sea salt, lemon and vanilla flavors) and marshmallows (cinnamon, coffee and vanilla).
