Dennis Quaid said he is taking a hiatus from movies to perform with his rock band, the Eclectics. They played in Austin, Tex., Sunday at the seventh annual Riverfest as part of Quaid's campaign to win musical respect.

Two Republican presidential candidates -- Mitt Romney, the actual nominee, and Ron Paul, the three-time wannabe -- delivered their versions of "the truth" Wednesday.   Both were frank. One was delusional. One was rational. I'll let you decide which was which. Romney -- speaking like a guy who thought he would win, who knew he should win, and who just blew a large fortune trying to win -- became the poster child for the term "sore loser": "The Obama campaign was following the old playbook of giving a lot of stuff to groups that they hoped they could get to vote for them and be motivated to go out to the polls, specifically the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people," Romney told hundreds of donors during a telephone town hall Wednesday.

That was the fate of Alternative Repertory Theatre in Santa Ana last year when its two founders called it quits. There was no one able or willing to carry on, and ART was kaput.

News, weather and bloopers: Continuing my series on local TV news, I phoned Jess Marlow to see if he could remember any classic boo-boos. Marlow, who co-hosts KCET's "Life and Times Tonight," told me about a humorous moment from his days as an anchor at KNBC-TV Channel 4. One night, consumer affairs reporter David Horowitz delivered what was (or seemed like) a very long segment on a rather dry subject.

Cox's Sword, a 2-year-old gelding, threw exercise rider Fabio Arguello on the training track at Belmont Park early Friday, thus beginning a bizarre chase. Cox's Sword jumped two fences and ran toward his barn, but then kept going--out a gate and onto the Hempstead Turnpike. He galloped down the busy, four-lane thoroughfare at about 8:15 a.m. EST, the height of rush hour, then got onto the cloverleaf leading to the southbound Cross Island Parkway before being captured.

Katharine Hepburn, who will turn 80 on Nov. 9, believes women are better off today than when she was growing up, but she worries that the Supreme Court will turn back the clock, especially on abortion rights. "I was brought up in an era when you were not alive until you were born and got a name," Hepburn says in an interview granted specifically to discuss the issue in the November McCall's magazine. "Now you are alive before you are born.
