For one brief, shining moment this week, Oakwood shed its battered image. A visit by President Bush to the troubled Venice neighborhood to honor a community activist for his fight against gangs and drugs gave some residents a rare opportunity to cheer. It gave recognition to community leaders who have waged a near-Sisyphean struggle to rid the neighborhood of an intractable foe. And it gave the President a national forum to promote his volunteer program and express his vision of hope.
