I AGREE with Agustin Gurza's perception regarding rude dancers who try to show off and dominate parts of the dance floor ["Salsa Dancing Is Not an Extreme Sport," Aug. 2]. However, I do not attribute this to the Vazquez brothers, especially Francisco, from whom I learned to dance salsa many years ago. I think it is rampant among people with a "look at me" attitude no matter which style you choose to use and where you are from. I have danced in New York, in San Juan and at many events and have witnessed the same "look at me" dancers from across the broad spectrum of nationalities that make up Latinos.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge lashed out at a former Bell leader Thursday, sentencing her to more than 11 years in prison and branding her a "hog" for tapping the town treasury for her lavish salary while the working-class city slid toward insolvency. Angela Spaccia became the first person sentenced in the municipal corruption case, and the lengthy prison term was the first indicator of how Judge Kathleen Kennedy intends to punish those convicted of misappropriating more than $10 million from one of Los Angeles County's poorest cities.

Ask anyone about L.A. tech these days and they'll almost certainly point to Santa Monica and Venice, where hundreds of start-ups have emerged in the last few years. So-called Silicon Beach is home to Snapchat, sizable Google and Microsoft offices, and a growing number of venture capital firms and co-working spaces. Almost every night, tech entrepreneurs flock to networking happy hours and parties. Potential investors flock to demo days that showcase the latest start-ups. When BlackBerry Chief Executive John Chen and Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt came to town last week, it was for a glitzy tech confab in Santa Monica.

SEATTLE - Authorities are still trying to determine what happened to a farmer near Riverton, Ore., who apparently was eaten by his hogs. Whether the animals attacked him or he collapsed inside the pen is unknown. Terry Vance Garner, 69, was raising several hogs weighing up to 700 pounds. His remains were found last week in the hog enclosure at his farm, but authorities have not been able to determine a cause of death. “All we know is he died some way, and the pigs ate him. Most of him,” Garner's brother, Michael Garner, told the Los Angeles Times.

Can a group of hogs really bring home the bacon? Hawthorne Mayor Larry Guidi thinks so. Guidi has sent invitations to more than 200 aficionados of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, affectionately known as hogs, to participate in the first Mayors' Ride for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation on Oct. 22. The apostrophe goes after the "s" because Guidi has also invited 84 area mayors to participate.

China already consumes half the world's pork. But to ensure it has a steady supply of hogs, it's struck a deal with Britain to import $73.5 million worth of premium pig semen. The agreement was brokered with the help of British Prime Minister David Cameron, who just completed a three-day visit to China. “We're doing all we can to ensure that businesses up and down the country reap the rewards from our relationship with China. And that includes our pig farmers,” said a statement from Cameron's office, according to the Financial Times . “This new deal to export pig semen will mean Britain's best pigs will help sustain the largest pig population in the world.” The pig semen, both frozen and fresh, will reportedly be flown in starting early next year.

Johny Hendricks is counting the days to a fight that could make him the most distinctive face of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. If he takes a fight-week break to ease the pressure by pursuing nighttime hunting of coyotes and hogs in Texas, well, that's simply the skilled wrestler with the devastating left hand and distinctive bushy beard being himself. Hendricks' bout against veteran Robbie Lawler on March 15 in Dallas is for the UFC's welterweight title left vacant by Georges St-Pierre.

Netflix is paying cable giant Comcast a pile of cash for what the companies say will be "no preferential network treatment. " Sure, because corporations routinely give money to one another just for the fun of it. The reality is that Netflix is handing Comcast an unspecified chunk of change, likely millions of dollars, for what they say is a "more direct connection" to the cable company's broadband network. That's preferential treatment. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"Hogwash!" was the cry when Neil, Sierra Madre's beloved pot-bellied pig, was cited for being overweight. Specifically, an animal control officer labeled him a hog, which is illegal to possess in the town northeast of Pasadena. The officer had actually been sent to the Montecito Avenue neighborhood to investigate reports of a noisy rooster, which is also illegal in Sierra Madre. But when she looked over the picket fence into the yard next door, past the mailbox painted with a fanciful pig's head, she noticed Neil rooting around in the dirt.

Some brought children. Some brought friends. Alden Delos Santos brought Chihuahuas. Delos Santos, 41, carried his puppies Bianco and Sriracha in a front pack as he joined as many as 150,000 other bicycle riders Sunday along a downtown-to-the-ocean path of streets that were closed to car traffic for the occasion. It was the sixth and biggest CicLAvia, a celebration of cycling, walking, in-line skating, skateboarding, scootering and any other form of transportation that requires no motor.

Thank God for the honorable Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.), who lays it on the line about those hypocrites in the White House (Times, Feb. 22), "Nancy Reagan's Party for Disabled Called Hypocrisy." He is the only one in the Senate, or anywhere else, who has the courage to speak out about them. Whatever happened to the Democrats? All Ronald Reagan wants to do is cut, cut, cut--funds for the poor, the sick, the disabled and the old--while pushing more on the plates of the rich hogs.

Just across the state line into Iowa we drove under a thunderstorm, the kind they only have in Tornado Alley, the corridor that runs up the ribbon of states west of the Mississippi River from Texas to the Dakotas. It was mid-morning, but the sky was black as a starless night and you needed the headlights on to see the road just in front of you. The rain sounded like stones striking the hood of the car. Big drops splattered against the windshield like overripe grapes.

This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Mike Hough in Highland, Calif.: "We recently visited the Hog's Breath Inn at Carmel by the Sea, Calif. Our party particularly enjoyed what surely must be its signature soup, made from artichokes. It was so delicious that I'd be surprised if you hadn't already obtained the recipe and shared it with your readers. If you could coerce the recipe from the inn and share (perhaps again), we would be so thankful. Thanks. " Artichoke lovers, rejoice!
