Unauthorized biographies are just that, and even a little less!Joseph McBride's error-laden tome which Robert Eshman reviewed("Beach Bio Bingo," July 18), is so typical of that genre that I... read full article
  • LettersPublic vs. Day Schools

    July 31, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    It was with dismay and embarrassment that I read
    your cover story "Beyond Their Means" (July 18). As a
    committed Jew, I am appalled at the attitude of the
    people quoted in the article who seem to think that their
    children have the "right" to a Jewish day school
    education. It astounds...

    A copy of the Jewish Journal of March 21 has just come to my possession with an article entitled "An Unfashionable Opinion" by Sally Ogle Davis. This is based on the film "Shine" and an interview with Gillian and David Helfgott.

    Responses to Sexuality

    I have just read the article "Bilingual Blues," by Joel Kotkin in the June 20 issue, and agree with him in supporting the initiative "English for Children," provided the assimilationist ideology of the "one nation" concept is deleted from the measure.

    On March 18 and 19, I took a trip with my school to Los Angeles' Simon Weisenthal Center and Museum of Tolerance. After we got back, we found a swastika and a Christian Identity sign, both signs of racist, white supremacist groups, spray-painted on our shot put ring. This is a way...
  • Letters Clarifying Remarks

    June 26, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    I am very grateful for Ari Noonan's coverage of the inter-denominational town meeting that took place at UCLA Hillel last month ("Setting a Conciliatory Tone," June 20). I feel a need, however, to fill out Mr. Noonan's description of my remarks that evening.

    We read Beverly Gray's "Neglecting Those with Special Needs," (June 6) with great interest. We have one of those special needs children. We have utilized educational, psychological, physiological testing and developed an IEP (individual educational plan) for our son. He is currently...
