In fact, the new poll concluded that 53.

I was surprised and pleased to see Marks' column appear in a forum outside the Jewish press. She brilliantly captured for the diverse readership of The Times what had been exclusively discussed only within Jewish communal gatherings. For a governing consensus to emerge in our city, we must all get beyond our uninformed stereotypes, understand each constituency's aspirations and concerns, and embrace felt needs rather than pander. Marks immeasurably helped your readership and the candidates for mayor understand our city's Jewish vote.

One year after the Los Angeles riots, city voters passed Charter Amendment 1 to allow City Hall to grant special business tax reductions or exemptions in economically depressed areas. An implementing ordinance, which would reduce business license fees through the year 2004, now sits on the desk of Mayor Richard Riordan. It has merit.

Whenever Samuel Benitez, who now lives in Portland, Ore., even thinks about his old job as a Los Angeles policeman, he says he starts coughing. And the closer he gets to Los Angeles, the worse the hacking gets. Benitez, 35, claims that the cough is caused by stress from working for the Los Angeles Police Department. Complaining that the cough disabled him, he recently won a lifetime tax-free disability pension of $1,480 a month, plus $51,390 in back benefits.

Power Concedes Nothing One Woman's Quest for Social Justice in America, from the Kill Zones to the Courtroom Connie Rice Scribner: 368 pp., $26 Connie Rice is known in Los Angeles as a brilliant civil rights advocate and agitator, but people farther afield have often confused her with Condi, the former secretary of State. Connie narrowly escaped being Condoleezza, a family name; the two Rices are second cousins (and hold disparate political beliefs). Connie Rice dispenses with any confusion in the first pages of her memoir "Power Concedes Nothing" so she can get down to the business of telling her story.

Los Angeles police are riding a crest of goodwill that has pushed the department's popularity to levels not sustained since the late 1980s as cops continue to post gains on fighting crime and building closer ties with the people they serve.

The League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County applauds the recent unanimous vote by the Board of Supervisors to lift the hiring freeze on Children's Service workers. The hiring of additional workers to ease the serious overloads on caseworkers and the addition of clerical staff will begin to alleviate some of the problems plaguing the Department of Children's Services. The League is supportive of manageable caseloads and sufficient personnel to deliver quality services to the children of this county.

Several current and former adult film performers who have tested positive for HIV spoke out Wednesday about working conditions in the industry. Cameron Bay, the actress whose positive HIV test result prompted a weeklong moratorium on filming last month, spoke at a Hollywood news conference about an on-set incident that she said had put performers at risk. A teary-eyed Bay said that in a July 31 film shoot with San Francisco-based Kink.com, an incident resulted in an actor getting a cut on his penis and bleeding.
