On his third day in Windmill Canyon, Fausto Uriarte Tizoc's water was gone. His throat burned. Even if someone had been within shouting distance, he couldn't have made a sound. He put the only liquid available to him, his urine, in his water jug-- and drank. Over the coming days, the 54-year-old man ate anything he could find: weeds and roots, worms, ants and beetles. He sucked the juice out of succulents.

Vice President Dan Quayle went to Southeast San Diego Monday to check out what Ted Thomas calls "the 'hood." Flanked by minicams and motorcycles, Quayle left as he came--with a toothy smile and a wave of the hand. Afterward, Thomas stood alone in the parking lot, muttering about promises and dreams and missed opportunities. He didn't mean "photo opportunities."

They're trying to create a sense of community in Southeast San Diego, a neighborhood that leaders say has felt the cold shoulder of the media while it tries to deal with increasing gang violence and drug warfare. It's a community that surrounds Lincoln High School, which itself has become a symbol of urban decay as its enrollment continues to shrink. Currently, 850 students attend Lincoln. Another 1,700 neighborhood teen-agers attend other San Diego City schools through a magnet busing program.

In T-shirts and hospital scrubs, about 100 employees of the failing San Diego General Hospital hauled signs in front of the Southeast San Diego facility Wednesday in an attempt to drum up community support for the hospital. The effort came five days after most of them were laid off and three weeks after the last time many of them saw a paycheck. The laid-off workers and a few community representatives marched in a circle in front of the hospital's main entrance, 446 26th St.

Not long ago, most theaters were content to confine themselves to the work of well-known white males. Nowadays, multiculturalism is the stuff of subscription ticket sales. Many theaters have so embraced the gospel of diversity that some have special staffers to keep an eye on progress. These people seek out scripts and artists to bring to the attention of artistic directors, as well as keep tabs on casting and serve as in-house consciences on cultural matters.

National Urban League President John E. Jacob on Sunday chastised those politicians who have been "preaching" about family values, charging that the issue is being used as a thinly veiled attempt to reinforce racial stereotypes. "We know that when they say Murphy Brown from Hollywood they mean Lizzie Brown from southeast San Diego," said Jacob, referring to criticism leveled by Vice President Dan Quayle at a television character who had a child out of wedlock.

San Diego jolted awake along with the rest of Southern California early Sunday. But the city soon resumed its placid weekend rhythms, largely unscathed by two major earthquakes that wreaked destruction elsewhere. Despite the force and duration of the tremors, damage was minor: * There were cracked walls, ruptured water pipes and frightened guests at a high-rise hotel in Mission Bay that was evacuated for three hours.

The surest way to get Councilman George Stevens on a roll of righteous rhetoric these days is to mention Southeast San Diego. He'll launch into a mighty tear, condemning the media for referring to the area by that "disrespectful nickname," accusing reporters of propagating the negative stereotypes that plague the individual neighborhoods that dot his district.
