Ameriquest Mortgage Co., once the "Proud Sponsor of the American Dream," is closing. Citigroup Inc. said Friday that it would buy the remnants of the Ameriquest empire from ACC Capital Holdings in Orange, and ACC said it was "preparing for an orderly wind-down of its retail mortgage business." Ameriquest shuttered its 229 retail offices months ago. As recently as 2005, Ameriquest and its sister company, Argent Mortgage, were together the No. 1 sub-prime mortgage lender in the world.

I can't wait until I'm 45 and get all those great parts. --Elizabeth Hartman, in a 1971 interview. The first reports of 43-year-old Elizabeth Hartman's June 10 suicide here were sketchy. Homicide detectives weren't sure just who the slight woman was who had thrown herself from the fifth-story window of her efficiency apartment. A handful of neighbors volunteered what they knew. She was an unemployed actress, they thought, who had starred long ago in some movie with Sidney Poitier.

When it was announced that Marlon Wayans and not Eddie Murphy would be portraying Richard Pryor in the long-discussed biopic of the comedy giant, the news was greeted with Internet jeering. Wayans wasn't surprised when he read the disparaging comments -- you can't hang your star on films like "White Chicks" and "Little Man" without consequences. "Look, I want to be able to make the stupidest movies ever, because they make people laugh and they make money," Wayans recently said with a smirk.

HAVING just watched the first two parts of "John Adams" on HBO, I must disagree with Mary McNamara's dyspeptic review of the series ["HBO's 'John Adams' Slogs Through History," March 14]. McNamara decries the historical realism that she feels has taken precedence over storytelling. In fact, she finds the program not interesting enough and thinks "a strange flatness permeates the entire cast." To echo Adams' line: I beg to differ. I found the first two parts riveting and very emotional.
