Re "Hollywood shuffle," editorial, Aug. 25 I cannot believe that any elected member of a government would even consider giving a tax break to the entertainment industry, which confuses its investors about profit and loss. This hypocrisy on the part of the star-struck politicians gave me an idea: Why not refuse to let any movie not principally made in California use the term "Hollywood" in its promotional material? This may sound silly at first, but think about the long-term effect.

Just an hour north of Sun Valley, Idaho's celebrity hot spot, lies the Stanley Basin — an amazing region surrounded by snow-capped mountains, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife, with the Salmon River — also known as the "River of No Return" — running right through the middle. Some 20 years ago, I spent serious time in this basin skiing and backpacking in the surrounding mountains, first with acclaimed Idaho mountaineering guide Joe Leonard and later alone or with various backpacking buddies.

Eleven-year-old Kendra Carpentier of Boise, Idaho, was telling me about her budding modeling career when I noticed a line forming behind her at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Several other children among the hundreds attending the "Hooray for Hollywood" convention, hosted by the International Modeling and Talent Assn., thought I was an agent or talent scout. Is that what I look like? Maybe I should hang a shingle. S. Lo's Hollywood Connection.

Unbuckling the mailbag: Question: Why does Reggie Bush need to apologize? Many, many college athletes have committed eligibility violations and never apologized. Earl Answer: How many of those guys became the first guy ever to return his Heisman Trophy? And if you think it was an independent gesture and not related to the fact the Heisman Trust was going to strip Bush of the trophy if he didn't give it back, well I've got a condominium in San Diego I'd like to sell you -- if Bush's parents aren't still living there.
