Jose Portillo left his native El Salvador 20 years ago for Baltimore and a better life. When his daughter followed 10 years later, she opened a business in the city's Spanish Town, but chose to live in Baltimore County. "Here [in the city] the houses are too close," said Sinia Zelaya, 30, who has been trying to persuade her father to move out of the city and in with her since he was robbed at gunpoint three months ago.

He also discovered his longtime hobby had aesthetic merit. "Previously, I never thought of what I was doing as art," the 79-year-old said.

Magic Johnson may have survived for more than 20 years with HIV and is in apparent good health, but don't let the basketball legend's success story fool you.

On Thursday, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People kicked off a campaign to enlist local pastors and ministers in spreading the word that the HIV-AIDs crisis in their communities is more severe than many realize, and that plenty can be done to help.

If someone is on welfare, there is an excellent chance they were doing something wrong in their life that caused them to be in that position. In some cases, it's having a child out of wedlock and trying to support themselves and rear the child without support from the father. Other situations may include a poor attitude leading to an inadequate education, improper job interview skills, alcohol and drug addiction and an assortment of other problems. What I'm proposing is a solution to alleviate much of this problem to the individual and to the government.
