Your article on Venice Arts Mecca ("Creative Touch," Feb. 26.) did a good job of showing why all of us should be supporting this wonderful community organization. I applaud founder Bingwa and President Lynn Warshefsky and their dedicated volunteers for their devotion to the youth of Venice. Who better than Venice Arts Mecca to turn the neglected Pavilion into a vital community center! DEBRA MILLER Venice

It was refreshing to read that thousands of youth all over America are saving sex for marriage. ("Youths at Baptist Convention Pledge Chastity Till Marriage," Jan. 8). In the '60s, the saying was "never trust anyone over 30." Perhaps teens today could say the same thing. So many adults in their lives, including authority figures, say the young can't control their sexual urges and must be medicated, fitted and rubberized. Perhaps these youngsters see through the "safe sex" message because sexually transmitted diseases are now epidemic in our country.

When old people talk about youth, certain standard topics--clothes, values, fads--are apt to come up. But while surveying older people in the black community recently, Yolanda Becerra-Jones began to hear a new and troublesome variation on the usual themes. The issue now is fear of young people. Many of those Becerra-Jones interviewed told stories of acquaintances who had been assaulted by youths.
