In politics there is a strategy called "hanging a lantern" on your troubles, as in a candidate throwing light on all his dark corners before his opponent does it for him. First-term Assemblyman Tom Connolly (D-Lemon Grove) has decided to hang such a lantern. Actually, a lone lantern may not cast enough light to cover the territory.

Beset by charges of sexual harassment, Rep. Jim Bates (D-San Diego) has not seen the last of his political problems despite his victory Tuesday over the earnest but unknown Rob Butterfield. Political operatives are already looking toward the 1990 primary--on the theory that Bates will be further weakened either by an official House inquiry into the charges or by more stories in the press.

Tom Connolly's campaign staff for the 77th Assembly District has produced a one-inch-thick "white paper" on opponent Steve Baldwin, with chapters that include "misleading mailers," "litigation" and "witches tape." In the paper's introduction, 36-year-old Baldwin is portrayed as a puppet of the far-right Christian movement. He is accused of "masterminding the right-wing takeover of the Republican Party locally."

On a second attempt, a proposal to raise $500 million from bond sales to finance computer equipment for California schools has been approved by a legislative committee.

On Wednesday, the Assembly Education Committee voted again, passing the measure 7 to 5.

The Los Angeles school board and Hugh Jones, its new business czar, should move now to create an independent inspector general's post to audit spending and probe tips from whistle-blowers. Supt. Ruben Zacarias asked earlier this month that such a position be established to review a number of expenditures, but the school board has not acted. More justification for this request, if any was needed, comes from a state audit released Tuesday.

However well-intended, your April 1 editorial, "Ignorance Can Kill Your Teenager," ignores the deadly impact of HIV and AIDS on gay and bisexual youth. Sixty-three percent of the reported AIDS cases among men under 25 are from unsafe sex with other men. To be at all effective, prevention programs must specifically address the unique issues affecting gay youth and directly confront the homophobia which, in gay youth, saps away the already low self-esteem many young people have. Failure to take these steps leads to an increasing infection rate among this most at-risk population.
