The iconic multihued pylons at the gateway to Los Angeles International Airport will stay purple tonight, because today is Alzheimer's Action Day in California.

Alzheimer's affects 5 million Americans, and 600,000 of them are in California, said Susan Galeas, who heads the California Southern Chapter of the National Alzheimer's Association.

The group maintains a 24-hour helpline at (800) 272-3900, or at www.alz.org.
