Don't tell the South team that the 51st Shrine All-Star Football Classic was an exhibition. The Southern California team dominated its Northern California counterpart, 43-13, before 5,243 Saturday night at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. The high school all-star game reverted to an all-California format after seven years of matching a team of California players against those from Texas.

Hank Ketcham. A real man's name, all angles and edges. The name of a boxing manager, maybe; a hockey coach; a bounty hunter. Henry Ketcham. A lot softer, somehow. Easily the name of the patient, devoted father of, say, a 5-year-old boy. Probably even goes to church. Hank Ketcham, progenitor of "Dennis the Menace," used to be Henry. Still is, sometimes. In between, he's Hank, the millionaire golfer/cartoonist of Pebble Beach by way of the Golf Course of Geneva.

He makes a derogatory remark about Salt Lake City Mormons and, after being fined, apologizes, using the royal "we."

Rita O'Farrell's “Pedestrian,” now at the Lounge Theatre, initially debuted at the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival. There's still something palpably “fringey” about the play, which is certainly not of the stick-to-your-ribs school of theater. But, although O'Farrell doesn't quite manage to say anything particularly novel about the state of human relationships, her roughly hour-long play largely succeeds as a comical divertissement.
