Andrew Exler, the self-styled anti-discrimination crusader who forced Disneyland to drop its ban on same-sex dancing and won the right for men to attend Chippendale's male stripper shows, decided he would like to lose about 40 pounds. So he opened the newspaper to look for weight-loss program advertisements. Gloria Marshall Figure Salon's ad caught his eye: "Exclusive Program for Women Only," it said. Exler called some of the Orange County salons and a Torrance location listed in the ad.

You have to figure that anyone signing on to work for new Assembly Speaker Doris Allen (R-Cypress) would realize that the job comes with certain hazards. And we all know that many state employees have been working for nothing since July 1, when the Legislature failed to pass a budget. Put both of those factors together and you get the life of Mike Pottage, which is nothing short of ridiculous these days.

Reader Angela Rubio loves those rare clear California days. The crisp afternoons after a good rain she looks north from local freeways to see the distant, snowcapped peaks of the San Bernardino Mountains lording over an urban vista of gleaming buildings and palm trees. But why is it that right about then it always seems a big rig cuts her off and spews a big cloud of exhaust that blots out the sky and sours her mood.

The kid who sued Disneyland has grown up. This week marks 10 years since Andrew Exler was kicked out of the Magic Kingdom for dancing with another man. Exler was 19 then. He won a civil rights battle that made headlines around the world and Disneyland ended up allowing same-sex dancing. As a sort of anniversary party, Exler has invited gay and lesbian friends to join him Saturday at the amusement park and "dance the night away." He wants to celebrate, to relax. It has been a busy decade.

Jenny Craig in person is a better ad for her weight loss program than the image that comes across in commercials, where she appears to have a heavy face and matronly figure. Actually, at 57 she's slender enough to be a model: 5-foot-5, 122 pounds, youthful and vivacious, with lively brown eyes and tousled raven hair. Full of energy, she says it is a quality she requires in all who work for her. But Craig does not come on strong.
