Two men were rescued from the waters off the Marina Del Rey coast Wednesday night after their boat capsized. The boat was outside the marina breakwater and somehow got tangled in a lobster net line after 7 p.m. and was taking on water, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "When the deputies arrived, they saw the vessel ... capsize and saw two men jump into the water," the Sheriff's Department said. The men were pulled aboard the deputies' patrol boat and taken to safety.

LET 'EM EAT TUNA: Lobster hunting, a popular wintertime sport along the South County coast, ended last week, and none too soon. Overfishing early in the season wiped out the harvest, leaving latecomers empty-handed, state officials say . . . . "It was really good when the season opened, then it tapered off," said Andy Olsen of Dana Wharf Sport Fishing . . . Fish and Game officials tell divers not to worry, the population will regenerate by the October lobster season.

Can someone please communicate the following to the people responsible for scheduling the NHL games on Fox: 1. Wayne Gretzky no longer plays hockey in Los Angeles on a regular basis. 2. New York is on the opposite coast from Los Angeles; 3,000 miles away. 3. New York Ranger games have no bearing on the Mighty Ducks or Kings making the playoffs. 4. We don't care to see the Rangers every week. 5. If you could forget to load the batteries in the glowing puck it would be greatly appreciated.

Since changing the name of Crystal Court to South Coast Plaza, the name seems to get more and more burdensome. It is now often referred to as the Crate and Barrel, Macy's Home Store Wing, formerly Crystal Court. May I suggest an easier one? West South Coast Plaza and East South Coast Plaza.

Reading "Coasting at Water's Edge" by Christopher Reynolds [Feb. 1] was enough inspiration for me to drive up the coast for a couple of days. If you're headed to Ragged Point, featured in the article, you may want to take time to stroll the locals-built footpath along Moonstone Beach Drive in Cambria. On the other side of the street I stayed at the cozy Castle Inn by the Sea. Someday I plan to follow Reynolds' trail all the way up to the Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City. Problem is there are too many distractions along the way, so this may take a very long time.

Whatever critics might say about George Noory, he earns credit for keeping an open mind. In fact, Noory's unmatched success on overnight talk radio may be due to his willingness to think the unthinkable -- such as when NASA gadfly Richard C. Hoagland rails about a government cover-up of ancient structures on the moon, or when a listener calls to report being attacked in bed by a dark, malevolent spirit. "It sounds kind of farfetched," Noory conceded of the latter, "yet I can't tell you how many people have had this syndrome . . . the 'Old Hag Syndrome.
