The notion that our unending recession is the worst since the Great Depression is now an accepted media sound bite. Yet to go by depictions in film, theater and television, the down-and-out 1970s makes our hard times look like easy street. In the muscular South Coast Repertory production of August Wilson's "Jitney," which opened Sunday in a second engagement at Pasadena Playhouse, the era that taught us the meaning of "stagflation" becomes a central character, not unlike the way it did in those classic Norman Lear sitcoms of the period.

All right, people, we can do this the easy way or we can do this the hard way. EASY: The Minnesota Vikings are given the chance to clinch the NFC Central title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a victory over Green Bay at the Metrodome, where the Vikings were 7-1 against the Packers since 1992 and 13-0 against the league since October 1999.

You wonder whether he will pick up the phone. What possible reason would he have to pick up the phone? As his football team has become a symbol of determination, he has become one of disillusionment. As the Arizona Cardinals have sprinted wildly through the NFL playoffs, he has stood painfully still. As the Cardinals attempt to leap upon football's grandest stage today in the NFC championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he will recede even further into the background.

It's backpacking made easy, or at least easier. The secret is hiking with "Mama's Llamas," an enterprise that uses 28 of the creatures who have proven that they are not only handy in the Peruvian Andes but anywhere the outdoor enthusiast chooses to travel. Francie Greth-Peto and her husband, Guy, operate "Mama's Llamas" out of their 20-acre spread outside of Placerville.

A word of advice for indie bands: That long-held dream of deal with a major label isn't a free pass to Easy Street. * Consider Toadies. Interscope Records released the Ft. Worth quartet's major-label debut album, "Rubberneck," in August, 1994. But by the start of the new year the album had not even entered the charts. The first two singles earned almost no radio or MTV airplay, and plans for a third were in limbo.

It is a small thing, maybe, but Marilyn Martin is happier now that her house sits still all day. "There's no more tremors," said the Venice Boulevard resident. "We felt the tremors, like an earthquake, every time the buses would go by." And then there were the car crashes. Those would happen when drivers lost control after bashing one of the street's legendary potholes or swerving to avoid them. Other cars snapped axles or were knocked out of alignment.

It isn't quite true that Picabo Street's gold-medal run on Wednesday in the super-giant slalom came on her first trek down the Olympic track. A year ago, three months after reconstructive surgery on her left knee, Street took a test run down the Happo'one course while riding the back of her coach, Andreas Rickenbach. Street wanted to soak up the vibes of the course, take a mental snapshot of the turns and the trees, for when she returned a year later.

Sean McGillivray is giving The Tour for close to the 500th time, and the thrill just won't go away. Nor will the numbers. "We're going to have the capacity to do so many things with hockey and figure skating," McGillivray says, hopscotching his way over rolls of insulation, between metal piping and through the ever-present layers of construction dust.

Last January, in a classic "American Idol" preseason meltdown, the hyper-emotional Josiah Leming was sent home -- which in his case meant his car. Now, less than a year later, in one of "Idol's" unlikely turns of fate, the high school dropout who'd left his ailing mother, out-of-work stepfather and eight siblings in Morristown, Tenn., is back, living the high life in Los Angeles and poised to release his first album on Warner Bros. Records.

For your free-spirited girlfriend, LTH Studio has jewelry by local artists, including Native American trade bead bracelets by Stormie ($70 to $395)

A year ago, Haifa Street was a name that inspired dread. Automobile carcasses littered the sidewalks -- charred remnants of car bomb attacks on U.S. and Iraqi security patrols. Gouges in the roadway from American rockets and insurgents' rocket-propelled grenades had turned the asphalt into a slalom course.

Reader Andy Adler wants a little street justice for Southern California. He contends that one local roadway was unjustifiably omitted from the "Weird Street Names" chapter of a new book by Brandt Maxwell. Gasoline Alley (Victorville) and Jokers Wild Lane (Grass Valley) received recognition. But there's no Easy Street in the tome "The Largest U.S. Cities Named After a Food and Other Mind-Boggling Geography Lists From Around the World." There's one in the Highland Park area, though.

Five days after Ezra Hendrickson got married, the Galaxy gave him a belated wedding present -- it traded him to the Dallas Burn. That was early last year, not long after Hendrickson, or "E.Z." as he is known, had helped the Galaxy win the 2002 Major League Soccer championship as one of the more attack-minded defenders in the league, a player who had become immensely popular in his six seasons in Los Angeles. Things didn't work out too well in Dallas. After one season, he was released.
