Anthony who? The armchair speculation about UCLA's defense this spring has centered on how the Bruins will replace Anthony Barr, the All-American linebacker who is expected to be a top-10 pick in the NFL draft. The Bruins have devised two answers to fill that void: scheme adjustments and Myles Jack. Jack was named to the Freshman All-American team by the Sporting News last season, and was the Pac-12's defensive and offensive freshman of the year after a late season run at running back.

The Libertarian Party chose former Republican Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia to be its presidential candidate after six rounds of balloting in Denver. Barr beat research scientist Mary Ruwart on the final ballot. The vote was 324 to 276. Barr endorsed Wayne Allyn Root, who was eliminated in the fifth round, to be his vice-presidential nominee. Barr left the GOP in 2006 over what he called bloated spending and civil liberties intrusions by the Bush administration. Barr said he expects to be on the ballot in at least 48 states.

George Zimmerman's parents are picking a court fight with Roseanne Barr. The entertainer admitted in a court filing this week that she had posted the address of Robert and Gladys Zimmerman on Twitter during the heated controversy over whether their son should have shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin two years ago. The Zimmermans contend that her tweet forced them to flee because media and protesters descended on their neighborhood....

REGARDING Martin Miller's article on how "The Sopranos" will end ["Will the Guy Catch a Bullet or a Break?" April 1]: He talks about the end of the first two "Godfather" films and then states, "Sorry, 'Godfather III' doesn't count." Doesn't count? So Michael Corleone losing a child and dying alone doesn't count. Is this the same film that three L.A. Times critics listed as one of their Top 10 films of 1990? Is this the same "Godfather III" that was nominated for seven Academy Awards including best picture and best director?

I am truly concerned about Thursday's House vote [to permit the 10 Commandments to be posted in schools]. I was raised as a Christian and went to a private Lutheran grade school. We had the 10 Commandments posted, as well as many other religious teachings and symbols. I do not have a problem posting these things in private schools. But to single out one particular set of one religion's beliefs as OK to post in all public schools, as well as any other government buildings that a state may designate, is an attack on our Constitution's specific limits on the government's power to establish or promote a religion.

Dr. Jay Goldstein of Anaheim Hills has spent the last five years researching and treating patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, a debilitating disease characterized by incapacitating exhaustion and a range of other perplexing symptoms. Explaining his theory of an unknown retrovirus invading the immune system, inducing cells to produce a chemical transmitter affecting the entire body, Goldstein pauses. "You know," the family practitioner says, "some very respected physicians will tell you I am crazy."

It's hard to believe that only 50 years have passed since Julia Child set foot on the new continent of American Foodlandia. And yet in that short period, it seems we've already seen the full cycle of colonial development: discovery, exploration, exploitation. Three books on recent food history offer glimpses of each stage. Luke Barr's "Provence, 1970" describes the beginning; Colman Andrews' "My Usual Table" hits the middle period; and Allen Salkin's "From Scratch," a pulp history of the Food Network, covers the descent into decadence.

I've been a runner for more than 30 years, but I'm something of a serial monogamist when it comes to fitness classes. (At the moment, I'm hooked on Ken Tietjen's classes at my neighborhood Pilates studio, Whole Body Fitness.) But I know what it's like to be on the prowl for a new class. So we're going to do some of the work for you. Each week, we'll try a new class and let you know what it's like. And, please, let me know if you have suggestions by email or on Twitter ( @mmacvean )

UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr knows all too well how one decision can affect a football life. There may still be a Matt Barkley-shaped indentation in the Rose Bowl turf to remind him. Barr slammed the USC quarterback to the ground last season, separating his shoulder. Barkley, many believed, would have been a first-round pick had he declared for the NFL draft after his junior season a year earlier. But he returned to USC and wound up being part of Barr's NFL application. It was something Barr recalled, and eventually dismissed, when faced with the same should-I-stay-or-should-I-go moment last December.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley could look across the city last season and see the perils of staying in school. Former USC quarterback Matt Barkley , whom many thought to be a first-round pick after his junior season, came back for a senior year. The Trojans finished 7-6. Barkley didn't win the Heisman Trophy. He slipped to the fourth round in the NFL draft last spring. A cautionary tale. BOWL TIMELINE: Matchups, schedule and picks Only, all Hundley has to do is look across the locker room to see the upside to playing another season at UCLA.

Linebacker Anthony Barr and offensive lineman Xavier Su'a-Filo continue to gather postseason honors while UCLA prepares to play Virginia Tech in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Barr, a senior, was chosen first-team All-American by the Associated Press. Su'a-Filo, a junior, made the second team. What the two have meant to the Bruins beyond their in-game contributions could be seen and heard after practice Tuesday. Su'a-Filo remained on the field an extra half an hour, working with freshmen linemen Caleb Benenoch and Kenny Lacy . Barr was praised loudly by freshman linebacker Myles Jack . "Not having No. 11 to my right next year is going to be a new experience," Jack said.

I read your article on Joel Barr (Oct. 14) and it made me livid on how this scumbag is remorseful over his sins of spying for Russia and wants to "re-establish his American citizenship." I am also appalled at the fact that the very government this man betrayed is paying him $244 a month in Social Security benefits. To put the icing on the cake, Barr claims to be a "resident" of California and gets entitlements that nearly double his pension. This is wrong. If a man chooses to betray his country and seeks asylum in a country that has been a potential adversary, then he should relinquish all claims to any pensions from his country.
