Timothy Bradley was deprived of the dramatic ending he wanted to mark his weekend, but he did enough to announce "I proved I'm a force to be reckoned with," and now the scheduling of future reckonings begins. By roughing up previously unbeaten Devon Alexander in a unanimous-decision triumph shortened by an accidental 10th-round head butt that only hastened the inevitable, Bradley clinched another million-dollar payday with so much more possible. "I'm ready for any of them, let's go," Bradley, 27, said after the bout.

RAMALLAH, West Bank -- Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have reached agreement on steps to bridge their years-long divide, including the formation of a unity government by month's end, mediators and officials with the two groups said Thursday in Cairo. The two Palestinian factions, which have been at odds since Hamas fighters drove Fatah's forces from the Gaza Strip in 2007, have been holding on-again, off-again reconciliation talks for more than a year. Their goal has been to politically reunite the West Bank, which is under Fatah control, and the Gaza Strip, ruled by Hamas.

The Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the self-proclaimed Messiah from South Korea who led the Unification Church, one of the most controversial religious movements to sweep America in the 1970s, has died. He was 92. Moon, who had been hospitalized with pneumonia in August, died Monday at a hospital in Gapyeong, South Korea, church officials announced. Although greeted as a Korean Billy Graham when he arrived in the United States four decades ago, Moon gradually emerged as a religious figure with quite different beliefs, whose movement was labeled a cult and whose followers were mocked as "Moonies.

As a Manhattan Beach resident since 1947 and having had two girls complete their education in this area, I have seen school issues change from year to year. However, the one issue which keeps reoccurring is school unification. The one priority many seem to overlook is: What is best for all children, not just mine. A full unification would be more beneficial to all children because of a more consistent program and better articulation between schools, staff and support staff in the K-12 years.

Adm. Eugene Carroll's excellent article (Op-Ed, Dec. 10) listing the defense items we clearly don't need was on target. One sure way to cut defense expenditures is to look at an idea whose time has come again: the unification of all the services. When a separate Air Force was established we were led to believe it would unify the various air units; instead we established some five separate Air Forces duplicating each other at a cost of billions of dollars. The Army and the Marines are already squabbling over who should have the new fast-reaction forces planned for the future.

Re "They mix, not match," June 24 A common and unintended consequence of a program that grants preferential treatment to any one group is the likelihood that some of the beneficiaries of that treatment will conclude they were so blessed based on merit. Apparently, such is the case with many of Orange County's Vietnamese, who were given access to this country based on American largesse (be it as refugees or under family unification) and now disparage Latino illegal aliens in this country.

With more at stake than any other Western country, Germany reacted with shock and circumspection over the toppling of Gorbachev, widely credited with opening the Berlin Wall and making unification possible. More than 1,000 Germans marched in support of Gorbachev in scattered demonstrations. Larger protests were planned today, including another Berlin march called by the mayor and the three major political parties. In Leipzig, the Soviet Consulate was evacuated and searched after a caller speaking broken German claimed a bomb had been planted there, police said.

Thanks to Conrad for his courageous Kohl-Hitler cartoon. It hasn't come to that yet, of course, but a strong, reunited Germany is a frightening thought. They have killed too many people through the years. Maybe the Berlin Wall had its good side. LINCOLN HAYNES Rancho Palos Verdes

This was supposed to be Timothy Bradley's weekend. Instead, the unbeaten WBC and WBO junior-welterweight champion from Palm Springs has been torched by critics for not accepting a Saturday title unification date against Amir Khan and a $1.5-million-plus payday. "I'm not hurting for money," Bradley said this week. "I've saved my money. I'm in a good position. " Britain's Khan, who'll instead fight veteran Zab Judah in an HBO-televised title bout at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, has accused Bradley (27-0, 11 knockouts)

Abner Mares has built a boxing career on overcoming adversity. He survived a family migration from Mexico to L.A. led by his mother, withstood a childhood in poverty and then rebounded from a career-threatening detached retina in 2008. So when Mares' scheduled Saturday night opponent, Joseph Agbeko, withdrew from the world bantamweight title unification bout at Nokia Theatre, Mares knew what to do: look for the silver lining. "This is the worst, all the training and hard work put on hold," Hawaiian Gardens' Mares said Thursday at the L.A. Live news conference intended to hype the bout.

The standard line on the career of Luchino Visconti is that he went from being one of the founding fathers of Italian neorealism to a master orchestrator of sumptuous historical melodramas. This shift is often viewed as a contradiction ? one of several that defined Visconti, a bisexual Marxist aristocrat ? and some even called it a betrayal, a turn from the present-day, working-class environments in which such early films as "La Terra Trema" were set to the titled, moneyed world of the past from which he came.

Three boys used to have the same routine inside the small North St. Louis gym. Train under the caring eyes of the former policeman trying to make a difference, stay off the street and aspire to a life beyond the fear, despair and violence outside. Terrance Barker was one. They buried him last year, after a domestic assault probe led police to surround his apartment complex and he committed suicide. Vaughn Alexander was another. He was involved in two robberies and is in prison. Devon Alexander, Vaughn's brother, was that third boy. Yet he survived living in that part of town ?

Unbeaten WBC welterweight boxing champion Andre Berto, saying he's "mentally and physically exhausted" from the devastation in his parents' earthquake-stricken home country Haiti, announced Monday he was withdrawing from his welterweight unification title bout against Shane Mosley, scheduled for Jan. 30 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. "I lost several family members to the earthquake and after two days without word was relieved to learn that my sister, Naomi, and her daughter, Jessica, survived but were left homeless," Berto said in a statement.

Re "In Los Angeles County, Two Courts Are Better Than One," Opinion, May 23: I am the immediate past president of the Los Angeles County Bar Assn., which has voiced its support for trial court unification in California. Charles L. Lindner is far off the mark in his conclusion that the Los Angeles Superior Court should not unify with the local municipal courts. Lindner's primary argument also is voiced by some local Superior Court judges, namely that trial-court unification will not work in Los Angeles.

The legions of followers stood in rapt attention today -- men in black tuxedos and red ties, women in white lace and veils -- for the largest mass wedding in a decade performed by Rev. Sun Myung Moon, leader of the powerful and often controversial Unification Church. In all, church officials claim, some 40,000 men and women either took their vows or renewed them in a global mega-ceremony that seemed equal parts lavish spectacle, religious ritual and, for many skeptics, just plain kitsch.
