Re "GOP Candidate Makes Some Waves," Feb. 28: Many thanks for giving my favorite candidate some coverage. I, like so many other Angelenos, are sick to death of career politicians -- they no sooner get into office and they begin raising money for their next job.

In the early positioning in the race to succeed Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, most of the political energy is being generated by two candidates who are fighting for long-shot status.

If anyone ever considered it a problem UCLA has two quarterbacks good enough to start, they can rethink that now. Consider Arizona State.

"It was unfortunate for Arizona State to lose their starting quarterback," UCLA Coach Karl Dorrell said. "I have been there when we lost ours."

When his hot-air balloon with "God Is Love" emblazoned on the side succumbed to desert rot, Leonard Knight knew he needed a better way to spread the good news. So he decided to paint a few biblical phrases on a hilly mound near the broken truck he calls home in a gravelly and desolate Imperial County squatters' encampment known as Slab City. That was seven years ago. Knight, 62, has been painting brightly colored religious messages and soothing pastoral scenes ever since.

A $1,000 limit on direct contributions to candidates for mayor of Los Angeles was lifted Tuesday after Walter Moore, a little-known Republican candidate, loaned his campaign $100,000. Moore, a 45-year-old attorney, said he chose to make a substantial investment of personal funds because reporters would not treat him as a serious candidate in the absence of a campaign war chest. "I don't think it's right," he said. "It doesn't matter that you graduated from Princeton ...

Mayoral candidate Walter Moore has qualified for city matching funds and collected a $43,000 check for his campaign. Moore is one of the nine candidates challenging Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in the city's March 3 primary election, and the only one to raise enough in campaign contributions to qualify for city matching funds. Candidates must raise at least $150,000 in contributions of $500 or less from individuals to qualify. Moore had raised close to $203,000 as of Jan. 17 and had spent all of it, records show.
