WHEN I WAS young, one of the first things I learned about myself was that I had "good" hair. It was curly and close enough to the texture of a white person's hair to not need pressing, hot-combing, greasing or some other method of straightening that extremely curly black hair -- also known as kinky or "bad" hair -- needed before it could venture out in public. Yet even my hair was not quite good enough.

Two votes for Willie Brown Re "Patt Morrison Asks: Willie Brown, State's man," Column, Aug. 21 What a great interview. Never a lightweight, Willie Brown displays his real knowledge of political power and how to use it for the public benefit. His wisdom on what term limits have done, and perhaps how campaign finance should be so transparent and therefore easy, is just brilliant. How about a write-in candidacy for Brown? I'm pretty sure he knows the answers and how to fix California.

Everyone loves reading about royalty, right? That was the thinking of Good Housekeeping magazine Editor-in-Chief John Mack Carter when he decided to feature Princess Caroline of Monaco on the cover of the June, 1988, issue. At the same time, Susan L. Taylor, editor-in-chief of Essence magazine, considered that celebrities in the news are usually a big draw.

It's been a big sister. A stand-up mother. And in times of crisis, an abundantly informed but never too preachy best friend. It has dispensed good-sense how-tos, spiritual guidance and up-to-date home science--tips on mixing makeup to create "flesh" tones in varying shades of brown or developing health programs for bodies of African descent. This month, Essence magazine celebrates its 25th year, with cover girl Oprah Winfrey looking like a vintage Supreme sheathed in a shimmery cocktail dress.

. . . Let's be real. We live in a racist society, and that makes it difficult to keep our faith high. . . . There is little to remind us daily of how powerful and capable we are, so we must do that for ourselves and for each other. . . . We can make a difference in our lives and in the world. We black folks have to believe this is true. It's time to dream big dreams and make them real. --Susan L. Taylor, editor-in-chief of Essence, the magazine for black women.
