Orange County wasn't born yesterday. But most of its high-rise hotels were born after 1974--the year that California adopted an ordinance mandating automatic sprinkler systems in new buildings taller than 75 feet.

MINNEAPOLIS -- In 1974, the year I was elected Minnesota's secretary of state, my state was the first in the nation to implement election-day registration. Over 24 years in office, I supervised a registration process that consistently gave our state the highest voter turnout rate in the nation, with no increase in election fraud. On Nov. 5, voters in California will decide on election-day voter registration.

When I first met Marcel Montecino he was playing the piano at a place on Sunset Boulevard called the Cafe Brasserie. He was a quiet, moody kind of guy and his music reflected the slow and bluesy attitude one associates with lazy summer nights in a city of dreams. You get lost in music like that, remembering places you've never been and seeing faces you've never seen, like misty segments of a romantic fantasy.

The album -- for Warner's Reprise Records label -- with its cover photograph by Thrasher showing a relaxed and grinning Sinatra during a recording session, was called "Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back." "Ed showed the artwork to Frank, and he just flipped, as we all did," recalled Joe Smith, former president of Warner Bros.
