When personal trainers and fitness instructors give advice -- get two more hours of sleep a night, cut out caffeine, exercise with a hula hoop -- people take it to heart. After all, they're the buff, in-shape gurus to the lesser mortals, and they must be living it 24/7. Unless the dispensers of such wisdom are actually strung out on drugs and alcohol, having blackouts, and going for two, three days without sleep or food, rendering the advice as worthless as a huckster's pitch.

"I am expanding to the hilt, and I have no shame." --From Barry Minkow's "Making It in America." Even as his financial empire was collapsing last summer, Barry Minkow planned to host a television show designed to counter the negative image of America's younger generation. A brochure for "Class of Tomorrow," which was being marketed by two producers to various networks, hailed the 21-year-old Wunderkind as nothing less than "what tomorrow's youth is all about."

Hugo Martin's article on Torrance Airport (June 18) neglected to include the airport users' point of view and interpretation of the financial condition of the airport. When the U.S. government agreed to permit the city's development of some perimeter airport property for non-aviation commercial use, it was with the stipulation that ALL revenues from that property be re-invested in the airport. Over the years, only a small percentage of the millions of dollars that the city receives from this property have gone to the airport.

Although most attention in Tuesday's Torrance election has focused elsewhere, voters will also decide on Measure C. The proposal would change city accounting procedures for money earned from the Torrance Municipal Airport and its adjacent commercial properties. If passed, the measure would repeal a portion of the City Charter that requires the money to be kept in a separate airport fund used to pay airport bonds and other expenses. The fund was approved by voters in 1957.

When the New Year's resolution calls for getting in shape fast, joining a gym and pushing yourself hard every day probably won't happen. What will work? Having someone scream, "Drop and give me 20!" Fitness boot camps may be one of the fastest ways to go from zero to fit. The setup is simple enough: A trainer leads a group of clients through an intense hour of cardio and functional-strength training. The secret lies in the circuit-style workout that toggles between cardio and muscle building.

Think of the homeless, and the snapshot that comes to mind is a dirty, destitute and disheveled man, perhaps drunk or on drugs, down on his luck, carrying all his possessions in a bag. It's true that single men make up the largest segment of the nation's homeless population, but families are quickly joining the ranks of urban misery. Now, increasingly, the snapshot must include homeless children. One out of four homeless persons is a child, according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

There's the kind of suspension of disbelief that's fun and creative, when an audience is in a sort of co-conspiracy with the illusion-making going on in front of it. The broader moments in Kaufman and Hart, or when that angel drops from heaven in "Angels in America," for example. Then, there's the kind of suspension of disbelief that's nothing more than turning the brain off, since even a co-conspiracy won't help. "Lounge Act," for example.

Kristi Ritchey Chef de cuisine at Ford's Filling Station in Culver City, former executive chef at Murano -- Ritchey, 27, was overweight most of her life. By the time she moved to Los Angeles two years ago, she weighed 260 pounds and was a size 26. Like many chefs, she wasn't eating enough during long days at work, and when she did eat, it was all the wrong stuff. "When you're around food all day, you lose your appetite," she says.
