    Wow…pretty lame writing from a "30 year veteran of L.A. news." There are two lead paragraphs that were obviously copied and pasted from a couple of AP stories. Then, this in-depth line: "President Clinton encouraged the attendees to be persistent and patient in their efforts." In their efforts to do what?? And let's throw in some commas, where, they don't belong. Pathetic.
