The accidental candidacy of Bill Simon Jr. began in the fall of 2000, when Simon -- staring down his 50th birthday, recovering from his father's death, feeling a void in his life -- was hit up for a political donation by a state Republican official who offered up the requisite praise that fund-raisers use to lather up donors: Why don't you run?

Cindy Simon seems like a natural today, standing behind a podium in a posh ballroom, talking about business policies like workers' compensation reform and bashing Gov. Gray Davis. But a year ago, she had never made a political speech, and this group -- the Conservative Order for Good Government, open only to registered Republicans -- would not have had her as a member.

I see that in Bill Simon's case, just as in mine, the wife is the brains of the operation. Simon, a political novice with millions of dollars in his pocket and nothing to do, got it in his head to run for governor of California on the strength of his business know-how. Bad move. Not only are businesses with alleged offshore tax shelters out of favor, but then there's the small matter of Wednesday's $78-million judgment against William E. Simon & Sons for fraud and misconduct.

Regarding your July 9 article, ["Sizing Up Personal Trainers"]: What makes a good trainer is someone like mine: She has never been late in 10 years, she is fun to be with, she makes me laugh with her upbeat manner, and she gets me going when I'd rather lounge on the sofa. Oh, and she also keeps me fit. CINDY SIMON Pacific Palisades

It went like clockwork. Within two hours, 1,200 invited well-wishers had greeted Cardinal Roger M. Mahony at the Courtyard, Union Station. Some just smiled. Some shook hands. Some curtsied. A few close friends gave him warm hugs. All were personally photographed with Mahony. It was the city's social blessing for the cardinal, elevated from archbishop by Pope John Paul II in Rome last month. Hosts Richard Riordan and Peter and Pam Mullin were never far away.

The California Republican Party, to put it charitably, is currently only half the party that Democrats are. Maybe that's why the GOP thinks it should hold twice as many conventions. Half as effective, meet twice as much. This hasn't been working, clearly.

Democratic Gov. Davis used a series of appearances before supporters across the Southland to boast of a turnabout in public education and to criticize his Republican rival's failure to vote in several past elections.

Greek island cruises are taking the brunt of public reaction to the TWA jet hijacking in Athens and other recent incidents of international terrorism, but few tourist and business travelers have canceled their trips, despite some misgivings, according to travel industry sources. "It definitely is affecting the cruise business," said Maureen Rosen, president of the Orange County Travel Agents Assn. and co-owner and manager of Compass Travel in Orange.
