Rep. C. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) was dealt a legal blow this week when Superior Court Commissioner Eleanor M. Palk ordered Cox and his attorneys to pay Werner Erhard & Associates $1,000 for failing to return videotapes of an est training session. The court also ordered Cox to return the tapes. The court's action means that the San Francisco-based firm can pursue its claim that Cox libeled est founder Erhard when he called est a "destructive cult" during his 1988 primary campaign against Erhard's brother Nathan Rosenberg.

Preston Maxley, founder of the San Fernando Valley Life Studies Institute, is the kind of self-styled New Age lecturer who likes to play with audiences the way he plays with the English language. In the role of the fictional Maxley in "Art Explained," Haynes Brooke, who also wrote the one-man show, gives a "lecture-performance."

It's the summer season, and the air is thick with political rumors. Rumor: You have to be a follower of est to work for San Diego Councilman John Hartley. Truth: No, but it helps. Hartley is a believer in the "human potential" training offered by The Forum, the spiritual/corporate successor to est. Est was developed by car salesman-turned-guru Werner Erhard (nee Jack Rosenberg) in the 1970s.

For Erhard, the father of Erhard Seminar Training (est), anything does seem possible. Despite two failed marriages and jabs about his slick packaging, this super-salesman of personal effectiveness just keeps attracting buyers. Since the birth of est in 1971, his power switch has been perpetually on.
