She was found Sept. 1 near Victoria Street and Tyler Avenue in Riverside. She was wearing a dress made by clothing manufacturer Blue Asphalt, which had black, gray, white, blue and red horizontal stripes.

Hooded men armed with axes descended on an isolated farm village before dawn Friday, slitting the throats of residents or decapitating them. Villagers and hospital workers said more than 300 people were slain. The attack appeared to be the worst carnage since Algeria's Islamic insurgency began five years ago, although it was unclear who carried it out. Witnesses said severed heads lay on the doorsteps of Rais, a village in the Sidi Moussa region 15 miles south of the capital.

Amy Resnick plays Lili, a delightful post-feminist lesbian, in Claire Chafee's "Why We Have a Body" at the Tiffany Theater. Lili was inspired to become a private investigator as a girl, after encountering her first lesbian in literature: Harriet the Spy. How Lili knew Harriet was gay, I don't know. But I accept her confident judgment on this and all matters: In Resnick's hands, Lili is just what you hoped Harriet would grow up to be: smart, observant, dry, witty, pithy, a good listener.

Last April, poet/writer and veteran scenester Nicole Panter and rock poet Exene Cervenka gathered a group of female friends--musicians, poets, performance artists, rabble-rousers and various other "bad girls who climbed out of our windows after dark and took taxis home at dawn"--and threw a tea party. The idea, Panter says, was to tank up on sugar and caffeine and transform these "daughters of Lilith, Lily Munster, Patti Smith and Emma Goldman" into a potent force for political change.

While players on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn. tour like the fact that two tournaments are scheduled for May 30-31, Manhattan Beach city officials aren't thrilled about the idea. The WPVA scheduled the Shootout in Las Vegas and the Manhattan Beach Open on the same weekend. The Shootout, which offers a $50,000 purse, is an invitational tournament for the WPVA's top eight teams. That means the top 16 players on the tour will not compete in the Manhattan Beach Open that weekend.

NOT LONG AGO, the typical American woman with some discretionary income considered a massage or a body "facial" an occasional luxury. But now, for many women, these treatments--in addition to regular hair styling, facials, waxings, manicures and pedicures--are a once- or twice-a-month habit. Full-service salons are increasing in numbers, and salons that once just tended to the hair and nails are expanding to include facials, massages and other forms of full-body care.
