It's all too rare, but there are those times in Los Angeles, like last Monday, when Rodney King's haunting question can be answered with an enthusiastic "Yes!" Under a hot June sun, an estimated 550,000 Angelenos gathered in the streets and in a downtown parking lot to celebrate the Lakers' repeat NBA championship and to wildly clamor for a "three-peat." The crowd was Latino and black and white and Asian. It was Armenian and Salvadoran and Korean and Lithuanian. And everybody did "get along."

In response to Jim Murray's column, "Howls Over the Heisman Voting Nothing New," Murray makes the common mistake of judging the past Heisman balloting based on the player's subsequent performances in the pro ranks. The trophy is not given to the player who is predicted to do the best in professional football, but rather to the player who has had the most outstanding college performance in that year . By Murray's methodology, the voters would need crystal balls to foresee the professional football superstars.

Drip. Wipe. Drip. Wipe. That's the lovely sound of sweat once it has made its way from the 2.5 million or so sweat glands in your body to the surface of your skin. Look at sweat--your body's central air conditioning system--as a necessary evil. Especially as it drenches your suit while you sit in traffic on the San Bernardino on your way to a 2 p.m. interview and the car clock indicates that it is now 2:14. Drip-wipe-drip-wipe-drip-wipe. Like waves to the shore, sweat cannot be stopped.

"The good die early, the bad die late," wrote poet Daniel Defoe in 1696. Nearly 300 years later, Billy Joel howled the same thing in his song "Only the Good Die Young." But a groundbreaking longevity study, spanning 70 years, debunks that cherished adage. Instead, it found that nice, conscientious people tend to live longer than the insolent and brutish.

If you've avoided Hugo's, one of this town's legendary power dining spots, simply because you actually eat rather than "do" meals, think again. The restaurant's delicious food can be taken home--and should be--especially when a couple of glitches in their to-go system are smoothed out.

Windows will sparkle if rubbed with a lint-free cloth, newspaper or a chamois. Or some folks try to master the knack of manipulating a squeegee. Regardless of the method, anyone can finish with a fine shine by rubbing a clean blackboard eraser over the windows after they've dried. If possible, enlist a helper, then get two of everything that is needed so one person can work on the outside of the window while the other is working on the inside.

Several years ago, Allen Funt, the original Mr. Candid Camera, proved once and for all that people are congenital snoops. He made a movie called "What Do You Say to a Naked Lady?" It was based on the familiar "Candid Camera" format but contained many scenes that never would have been allowed to make it to television. One gag involved Funt placing a good-looking young woman, dressed only in underwear, atop a stool and behind the huge pane of glass in a storefront window.

Platinum hair started turning up in European fashion magazines about six months ago. Worn close to the head or long and loose, these ivory locks looked unnatural . . . but nice. Now we're seeing them all over town. Even Joe Pesci's a golden boy in "Jimmy Hollywood." Diane Keaton recently insisted that her longtime hairdresser, Jonathan Gale at Juan Juan in Beverly Hills, turn her into a towhead. As did actress Kate Capshaw and super-model Vendela.

Think of it as central air conditioning for the body, especially during these dog days. If not for the impressive network of sweat glands in your body--the average person boasts 2 million to 3 million--maintaining a healthy body temperature would be impossible. "Animals pant, humans sweat," says Dr. Stephen Ross, UCLA assistant clinical professor of family medicine on staff at Santa Monica Hospital Medical Center. Sweat is a major help in controlling the body's internal temperature, he says.
