I greatly appreciate the article by Amy Wallace, pointing out the factual errors in Pat Buchanan's reference to the Vermont Knoll Retirement Center and the May riots (Aug. 19). The fact that the residents courageously saved their own housing makes me all the more proud of the fact that the development of the housing was only possible with financing assistance provided through the city of Los Angeles. And it is such programs that George Bush, Pat Buchanan, and their fellow Republicans have actively sought to eliminate.

Electricity was restored Sunday to more than 80% of South Los Angeles residents who had lost power, but 5,000 remained in the dark, keeping their food cold with dry ice and lighting rooms with candles and kerosene lamps. Department of Water and Power crews have restored power to 25,000 of the 30,000 customers left without service in the wake of last week's riots.

Patrick J. Buchanan's speech before the Republican Convention may have drawn cheers in Houston, but at the Vermont Knoll Retirement Center in South Los Angeles, residents said Tuesday that his emotional finale left them cold. Buchanan ended his speech Monday night with an apparent reference to the center at 83rd Street and Vermont Avenue, where he said two National Guard members arrived late one night during the riots.

They have known the violence and pain of long lives. Clarence Davis, 75, survived World War II, then lost a leg to diabetes. Dorris Blue, 72, mothered 11 children; four died, two in Vietnam. Chlora Jones, who celebrated her 107th birthday recently, has outlived every member of her family. Agnes Senegal, 80, and Minnie Lee Adams, 63, were living in Watts in 1965.

The burned-out buildings along Vermont Avenue have been boarded up or razed, the sky is mostly clear of smoke and embers, and looters no longer rule the streets. But the National Guardsmen of Troop Bravo, 1-18 Calvary Squadron, Army National Guard, returned Saturday to South-Central Los Angeles.

I take Pat Buchanan personally. I know I shouldn't, but I do. Watching him address the opening session of this week's Republican National Convention in Houston, it became clear to me why. In part, it's because, broadly speaking, we grew up in the same tradition--the Irish-Catholic milieu that dominated American Catholicism's communal and intellectual life for most of this century. So, I recognize his type.
