Frazier Glenn Cross (a.k.a. Frazier Glenn Miller Jr.), the 73-year-old extremist accused of killing three people in Overland Park, Kan., is an avowed anti-Semite who reportedly yelled “Heil, Hitler!” while sitting in a police car. Yet his victims were Christians : Dr. William Lewis Corporan and his grandson, Reat Underwood, were Methodists who were at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City because Reat was going to compete in an “American Idol”-style singing competition.

Cathy Youngblood leaves home at 5 a.m., walks a mile in the dark and catches a Blue Line train at the Watts station. She transfers to the Red Line downtown, then boards a bus at Sunset and Vermont and gets to West Hollywood at 6:45, ready for her job as a hotel housekeeper. That's the daily schlep for Youngblood, 62, whose story tells you something about the local economy. She has two college degrees, one of them in anthropology. But after working her way through school as a custodian, the housekeeping job was the best she could find.

Alan Abrahamson writes ["Forward Progress", Aug. 31] that someday it won't be a social milestone when a major college football program hires "a worthy coach who happens to be black." That someday would be today if the media would just focus on an individual's ability to coach and not what color skin they have. In Abrahamson's example of the hiring of Tyrone Willingham as Notre Dame's football coach, is it more important that he's the school's first black coach or that he could be the first coach to win the Irish a national championship since the 1980s?

What a wonderful story by Eric Sondheimer on Mesrobian Coach Vic Karapetian [Feb. 13]. What a wise administrator. And what maturity on the part of that young coach to respond to criticism in the way that he did. He is going to be a great coach -- or congressman -- someday. Hugh Wyatt Camas, Wash.

I was appalled that Abcarian shrugged off the conviction of (the teen-ager's) parents and took a position of authority over them. At 18, her friend is but one year away from the influence, guidance and care of her parents. Perhaps someday if Abcarian's daughter seeks the support of a friend over her parents, she'll know how they feel. LEYLA MAGPIONG Hawthorne

Amy Wallace's well-done profile of Illeana Douglas was enlightening and informative and revealed lots of yummy stuff about a talented (and beautiful) actress who has yet to attain the heights of stardom she so deserves ("Her Own Star Search," Sept. 26). Surely, someday soon, people will drive past her home to try and get a peek at her gardening. MARC KESSLER Los Angeles

With all the talk recently about the Lakers signing Navy center David Robinson in two years, after his service obligation is over, I can't help but wonder about the future of the NBA. One of the marvelous things that make sports so attractive is the possibility of the unbelievable to happen. The games are played because the underdog has a chance, the meek can someday rise and rule the league. But, if the best teams are constantly allowed to get the best young players through loopholes, ignorance or money, then the league is doomed to be nothing more than an 82-game exhibition schedule that finances the weak teams before the Lakers claim the crown.

Regarding "Two Compton Officers Slain in Traffic Stop," Times, Feb. 23: Who killed those cops? You did. This isn't the crime of the century. They died, you killed them, end of story. Until the next one that is. But then, that too will be an easy one--same question, same answer. I sit at my computer, listening to Native American flutes on my walkman, staring out at the vastness of the snow-capped Tehachapi mountains through my bedroom window, wishing I were back home in Texas and crying.

It is 5:35 a.m. "Let's go," Carmen says to Andy, 14, and Nicole,11, as they head up the street toward their Florence Avenue bus stop, all of them wearing backpacks. On weekdays, Carmen Mendoza does not see the sun in her Bell Gardens neighborhood. She's out the door with her two kids before dawn, and the evening darkness always beats her home. One reason for the 15-hour days is that like thousands of people in a region built for the automobile, Carmen Mendoza doesn't own a car. So she and the kids commute to work and school by bus, with lots of transfers along the way. On a typical day, the bus that takes them back home is their eighth or ninth of the day. I joined them for the journey recently, meeting Mendoza and her kids as they emerged from their home to go catch the first bus of the day. Nicole is still tired, and Andy seems to be sleep-walking, but to look at their mother, you wouldn't know the hour was so indecent.

" The ever-likable actress is writing the TV adaptation of her book about a struggling actress for the CW -- something of a return to the network whose relationship with Graham goes back to her leading role on "Gilmore Girls. " Graham will also be executive producing the series along with friend Ellen DeGeneres, who optioned the book through her A Very Good Production banner.

Rand Paul is the most interesting contender for the Republican nomination. And when I say interesting, I mean that in the broadest sense. A case in point: Last week, the Kentucky senator hit some turbulence when the Washington Free Beacon reported that Jack Hunter, Paul's aide and the coauthor of his book, "The Tea Party Goes to Washington," was once the Southern Avenger. Who's that? Starting in the 1990s, as a radio shock jock, Hunter would wear a wrestling mask made from a Confederate flag, while making jokes about assassinating Abraham Lincoln and having the South re-secede.

Outgoing Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Tuesday gave one of his most specific hints about his continuing interest in running for California governor -- telling KPCC radio host Larry Mantle that he wants the job and expects to run one day. "You mentioned governor -- look, I believe in public service, I want to run for governor. In fact, I fully expect that I will," Villaraigosa said. "I'm going to tell you something. I will never have a job like this. This city has given me more than I could have ever hoped for. " Villaraigosa, who leaves office June 30, did not talk about timing, though he has indicated before he would not run against Gov. Jerry Brown, a fellow Democrat, who will be up for a second term next year.

President Obama's speech last week on the future course of America's 11-year-old war against Al Qaeda was long overdue. Never before has he offered the public such a detailed explanation of his anti-terrorism strategy. In part, that's surely because so much of it was officially secret - but also because the public hasn't demanded a position more nuanced than "tough on terrorism. " The president did three big things in his speech Thursday at the National Defense University in Washington.

Miranda Kerr, model and wife of actor Orlando Bloom, says she's content with having one child for now. When ET Canada asked the Victoria's Secret angel if she was planning on having more kids, she responded: "Someday, not right now. " So no more genetically superior-looking kiddos for now? Sad. The Aussie model was in New York for the brand's launch of the "Fabulous" spring fragrance and bra when she opened up about her home life with 2-year-old Flynn Christopher. PHOTOS: Victoria's Secret Fashion Show "We have the schedule planned out for him so that we make sure he's doing his play dates, he's doing enough reading time, he's doing enough drawing and painting, arts and crafts and also a lot of fun time," Kerr said.

Denise Castaon's essay ("I Don't Want Kids, Period," May 3) echoed the thoughts of myself and many childless people who constantly dodge the procreational interrogators. I too have had it "explained" to me that I am selfish, not performing my biological duty or missing out on the joys of parenthood. But even at the ripe old age of 34, I was shocked to learn that a dentist would discount a young woman's pain and consider it something she "should get used to," because of the assumption that she will someday be in labor.

Ten years ago, a spunky sprite with a 1,000-watt smile and a girl-next-door name, Mary Lou Retton, vaulted from the Los Angeles Olympics across television screens into the homes of millions of Americans who fell in love with her. Sweet 16, 4-feet-9, a red-white-and-blue, stars-and-stripes ball spinning through the air, she made an entire country cheer on Aug. 3, 1984, when she landed firmly on her feet and flung up her arms, absolutely sure of a perfect 10 that gave her the first U.S.

Last month, Cuba opened its doors a little wider. President Raul Castro announced that Cuban citizens would no longer need to obtain notoriously hard to get exit permits to leave the country; just a passport. Many Cubans are understandably skeptical of Castro's action. No doubt some Cubans will still be denied passports, and there are still many restrictions on travel. Athletes, musicians and members of the military, for example, still have to obtain special permission from big brother (or, in this case, little brother, Raul)

I hate to be a party pooper. So I've been eager to join the celebration over "No-Kill December" -- the first time that Los Angeles city animal shelters have managed to go an entire month without euthanizing any adoptable dogs or cats. But I couldn't help worrying that "No-Kill December" would lead to January slaughter. What happened to all those dogs and cats -- 1,000 in a typical December -- the city shelters are forced to put to death every year? There's no way shelter employees could have found homes for all of them.
