That lesson was painfully demonstrated Monday when a University of Southern California football player was struck by a bullet fired from a quarter-mile away as he waited to start practice.

Last year three University of Southern California football players were suspended for taking money and other gifts from an Oxnard sports agent. They jeopardized their collegiate careers and their university's reputation and athletic program.

Pardon Bob Woodward's French.

One morning about 60 years ago a young man emerged from the Biltmore Hotel at Pershing Square. This young man eventually would grow into one of Los Angeles' great writers but on that day he was simply young and suffering dreadfully from the previous night's excess at a Hollywood party. Sometime in the wee hours he was deposited at the hotel by persons unknown. Now he stood facing Pershing Square in a state of miserable decrepitude.
