If all philanthropists were required to be morally upright, hospitals would be low on new wings and colleges would be starved for buildings. We'd also be missing a few beloved institutions outright — Stanford and Carnegie Mellon universities are cases in point. Charity is a virtue that should not be off-limits to scoundrels — if, in fact, they are truly giving to an institution rather than tethering their donations with strings that benefit them. Lowell Milken would probably be counted among the less pristine philanthropists, though not among the most scurrilous.

Re "Cedars, UCLA cut from L.A. health plan," Sept. 21 Before my retirement, I was an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for more than 30 years. I took care of hundreds of Medicare and Medi-Cal patients. I can count on one hand the number of celebrities I cared for. Cedars is a nearly 1,000-bed hospital occupied mostly by regular patients. It is expensive because it strives for the best treatment, does invaluable research, teaches physicians and is often not paid for the care it provides.

Adding their voices to a debate that also has engaged media organizations, UCLA's undergraduate student government recently approved a resolution that condemned the use of the term “illegal” when describing immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission. The so-called “Drop the I-Word” resolution declared, in part, that: "We are aware that certain racially derogatory language used in media, political discourse and other institutional settings has historically bolstered the foundation for racially harmful actions including racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence.” It also said that some students have expressed fears about the appointment of Janet Napolitano as the next UC system president because she helped oversee an expansion of deportations during her recently concluded term as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.
