As a law student at the University of San Diego, I'd like to thank you for an excellent article on Author Hughes and USD. USD is now on the verge of transcending its parochial past and becoming a nationally recognized university. No one deserves more credit for this achievement than Author Hughes. I am particularly pleased that Mr. Hughes and the university have recognized that diversity, not only of students and faculty, but of ideas, is the linchpin of future growth. We have made some progress in this area, but let there be no doubt that we still have a very long way to go. By and large, the university maintains its reputation as a sanctuary for upper-middle class, conservative white kids, whose socio-political dialogue is dominated by what one recent graduate termed "The Orange County Republican Business Administration Major Party."

Here's an example of how a currency trade might work: • A person who believes that the European economy is strengthening decides to buy euros, thinking this currency will become more valuable in relation to the dollar. • The person opens an account with one of 13 registered foreign exchange broker-dealers for home investors, downloads the dealer's proprietary trading platform onto his computer and deposits $500, typically the minimum stake. • Opening the trading platform, the customer sees that the dealer is willing to sell a euro for $1.45000.

Made possible by the passage of a $145 million bond issue in November, the magnet high school would be one of 13 schools to be built across the city. How the fundamental school concept would work at the high school level was not explained. Santa Ana has one of the most crowded school districts in the state.

"Isn't this ugly?" Brad Holland says and laughs, calling attention to the ungainly black car he was given after becoming University of San Diego basketball coach last September. "They told me it was a Crown Victoria, but they didn't tell me it was an '89. The only good thing is that all I have to do is put gas in it." It only goes to show that when you go looking for greener pastures, they could end up being a little brown around the edges.
