Sweep the romance from the streets; it makes for a clearer picture. There's nothing dreamy about the Boulevard. Just a ribbon of asphalt studded with glitter dust--winking, tweaking the illusion. If one looks hard enough, there rises an allusion to the past, dim and broken like false promise. No matter. Los Angeles, Hollywood proper, is its own Ellis Island for so many seeking something other, some sense of liberation. Specifics are an afterthought.

Kids, critters and film characters converged on a CBS Studio Center back lot Sunday for "Kids 'n Critters," a family concert and pet show to benefit a center for homeless teens called My Friend's Place. The event, which attracted about 1,000 participants and raised $22,000, included a crafts fair where children painted animal masks, made animal-ear headbands and decorated hats.

Greg LeMond's emotional foray into victim's advocacy started with a creepy, threatening phone call. "It was," says the three-time Tour de France champion, "the sickest thing I've ever heard." The anonymous male caller made crude reference to a secret LeMond had shared only with family and a few close friends. He threatened to publicly disclose what LeMond had kept locked away in shame and embarrassment for most of his life: A painful past as a childhood victim of sexual abuse.

When Cincinnati defeated Marquette by 19 points last month, many of the Bearcats complained that the victory margin wasn't sufficient. They believed the mismatch was worth at least a 30-point blowout. "I'd be interested to see what they had to say tonight," Coach Mike Deane beamed after his Eagles stunned the fourth-ranked Bearcats, 62-58, Wednesday night at Milwaukee.

They begin trickling in when the doors open at noon. A sullen-looking young man with a Fu Manchu mustache and a backpack slung over his shoulder takes a sandwich and sits alone at a table. A pair of longhaired boys with baby faces argue good-naturedly over who gets first dibs on the microwave. A muscle-bound teenager with a chain around his waist nibbles at his lunch while scribbling poetry.

What intrigued me about Jeremy was the world he'd created. It was a mystical place of dragons and unicorns, a fantasy city laid out in exquisitely penciled drawings. The details of the dream place were precise, the streets and buildings, the courtyards and the homes, interlaced on paper, connecting, logical. Jeremy showed them willingly one sweltering afternoon on Hollywood Boulevard but seemed unable to explain them.

On his way to work at a Hollywood entertainment company, Steve LePore would casually step over at least one person sleeping on the pavement. "There wasn't a day that passed that I didn't walk over someone or see someone crawling out of a dumpster," said LePore, 32, who lives near Universal City. "I got sick of my indifference." Ray Castellani, 55, of North Hollywood never had been indifferent to the downtrodden. Indeed, he had been downtrodden himself.

Imagine that Los Angeles hires one of its best advertising firms for an image make-over. The whiz kids crowd around a conference table in some glassy office, striving for the perfect theme to revive a battered, demoralized city. They would see that what L.A. needs is to remind the world--and itself--of its own goodness. And they would see-- yes! --that the lady in the police station is the perfect symbol for their campaign.
