I was waiting for a letter writer like David Becerra (“Global integration is what society needs,” Community Commentary, Saturday) to answer and set the record real straight about the 12 million to 20 million illegal immigrants in the United States who think it is perfectly all right to break our federal immigration law and be rewarded as a result. Apparently, Becerra seems to be a strong believer in global integration, which is never, never going to happen, and puts the letter writer in the naïve category.

I don't follow sports. Not firsthand, anyway. I know that when I hear curses coming from my living room, the Red Sox are doing badly, and that a “woo” or “woo-hoo” indicates the opposite. I also know that hunger pangs can be a symptom of a condition called “extra innings,” and that, contrary to all logic, the Papelbon is not a highway in Germany. But usually I pay no attention to sports at all. That's probably why I was so surprised some weeks ago to notice a headline that flashed at me from an online news site.

Ken Robin remembers walking his dog in Los Feliz about four years ago when a stranger came up to him and asked if he plays tennis and Ping-Pong. When he said he did, the man, Marshall Pura, replied: "Then I've got the game for you. " Robin, who was living in the Bay Area at the time, was just in Los Feliz for vacation, but Pura still picked him up the next day and drove him to the Glendale YMCA to play a game of pickleball. "I didn't know what pickleball was. I didn't even know what Glendale was," Robin, a retired attorney who has since moved to Los Angeles, said this week after finishing up a game of the sport that's been around since the 1960s, but has been increasing in popularity over the past decade.

This is the second in a two-part series . Vidal Herrera is the owner of four empty burial plots, but he's hoping one of them doesn't have to stay empty for long. A retired coroner's investigator, he's been in the business of helping other families deal with death for as long as he can remember. But this time, it's personal. In a quest to honor his family divided and traumatized by the Mexican Repatriation Act - an anti-immigration policy during the Depression that saw the illegal deportation of millions of U.S. citizens of Mexican descent across the border - Herrera is gearing up to embark on a journey to exhume the remains of his uncle, who died when he was 7 years old, and bring him back home to Los Angeles.
