Seeking to calm fears of massive funding cuts, the U.S. secretary of veterans affairs assured several thousand disabled soldiers Monday that they can count on more money this year for medical and other needs. But some among the 5,000 delegates to the 69th national convention of the Disabled American Veterans did not buy Secretary Edward J. Derwinski's upbeat message. "He's a politician," grumbled Tom Garrett of Las Vegas, 61, a Navy veteran who now uses a wheelchair.

Republican congressional candidate Sang Korman has threatened to file a defamation lawsuit against Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) unless Gallegly apologizes for what Korman maintains was a malicious attack on his character. "He's trying to make me lose face and he's trying to make me lose my credit," Korman said. "Why did he attack me if that's not the truth? He can simply say he made a mistake."
