From time to time, we wonder what the primary language spoken in the United States actually is. We thought it was English. Depending on where you are, it could be Spanish (East Los Angeles), Asian (Alhambra) or Armenian (Glendale). Often, these people can speak English but prefer to speak their native tongue in public. Like Elaine Alexander has stated (April 25) so well, it is very rude and offensive for people to speak their native language in public.

Pasadena and its environs have had a jazz presence since at least the 1950s, when artist Jirayr Zorthian hosted a clothing-optional party for Charlie Parker in 1952. A few years later, youngbloods like vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, bassists Albert Stinson and Herbie Lewis, drummers Mike Romero and Jim Keltner, and saxophonists Richard and Pete Aplanalp were developing their own jazz profiles. Through his decades of rock-steady playing and teaching, 71-year-old Altadena bassist Putter Smith is one of the Pasadena jazz patriarchs.

It was 1985 and the Southland was in the grip of fear as a series of grisly killings committed by a man police called "the Night Stalker" continued to scar the calendar, setting the region on edge. Among Richard Ramirez's victims were a traffic supervisor, an accountant, a pizzeria owner, a parking lot attendant and an auto mechanic. On July 20, Maxon and Lela Kneiding were added to the list after their mutilated bodies were discovered inside their Glendale home. Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz was a 20-year-old rookie cop working the graveyard shift when he was dispatched to the Stanley Avenue home where the Kneidings had been shot, stabbed and nearly decapitated.

And his credentials ? gang member, drug trafficker, convicted felon ? made him an unlikely candidate for a position at the national trucking brokerage firm.
