Ken Burns makes amazing documentaries, but even more amazing is that the Oct. 15 fluff piece on national parks by Burns and Dayton Duncan, "Preserving national treasures," made it to print in The Times. The article can be summed up as such: National parks are wonderful, and thank you President Obama for saying that. Unfortunately, there's no meat, no proposals, just nostalgia. But "where's the beef" when our antiquated parks could use a real makeover? Burns and Duncan rightly pay homage to Yosemite, "the home of spectacular waterfalls, silent groves of ancient trees and an unequaled alpine wilderness.

On April 24, the Orange County Human Relations Commission will present the Rev. Stephen J. Mather of First Presbyterian Church in Anaheim one of its 1994 awards for outstanding contributions in the area of human and civil rights. That might not seem very surprising at first.

The demonstration, which was organized by the group Operation Rescue, started about 10 a.m. and continued for about an hour and a half. Police officers outnumbered the protesters, who marched in front of the church carrying anti-abortion placards. No arrests were made.

Msgr. Jaime Soto criticizes Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) for voting against the ban on partial-birth abortions (Letters, Nov. 17). He seems to forget that abortion rights forces don't consider her a reliable ally. Her faith is Catholic, and the citizens who elected her to Congress are generally pro-life. She supports a medical exception to protect the life of the mother. This can hardly be called voting with her party rather than representing her district on this fundamental issue of life.

In the style of delegates to a political convention, a spirited, foot-stomping crowd filled the Century High School gymnasium Monday night to say that they want an end to the drug epidemic. Gathering under signs that identified the names of their churches or neighborhoods, about 2,000 people asked elected officials to provide more leadership in the drug war. "Tonight we demand that our voices be taken seriously in this county," the Rev.
