It arrived inside a large envelope addressed to Howard Cohen, marked "Handle With Care." Cohen's mother noticed the return address: The Presidential Inaugural Committee Washington, D.C. The invitation is handsome, suitable for framing. The script is fancy, the wording at once formal and awkward: The Presidential Inaugural Committee requests the honor of your presence to attend and participate in the Inauguration of William Jefferson Clinton . . .

It's not only actors and filmmakers who get excited about something like the Spirit Awards nominations announcement. One could argue that such things are actually more meaningful (and closely watched) by executives and producers. The nominations unveiled Tuesday split up well between films that are definitely in the hunt for larger awards and those that may be happy with any recognition at all, with seven nominations for “12 Years a Slave,” six for “Nebraska," four for “All Is Lost,” and three each for “Blue Jasmine,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Fruitvale Station” and “Short Term 12.” Depending on whom you ask, the nominations either solidify who is competing for what in the ongoing awards picture - “Enough Said,” for example, was distilled to supporting actor and screenplay, “Dallas Buyers Club” strictly a competitor in the male acting categories - or remain their own self-contained system.

Of all the onetime Disney stars, Vanessa Hudgens has always seemed particularly eager to shed her squeaky-clean image. While Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez were still trying to appease their tween fanbases, Hudgens was dealing with blowback from an infamous nude-photo scandal. And following the conclusion of the "High School Musical" franchise, she almost immediately began taking on dark film roles instead of sticking with more PG-fare. This year alone, she's been seen as a concubine, a bikini-clad party animal and a runaway stipper.

Don and Prudy Schultz set out walking from their Van Nuys home at 9 a.m. Tuesday, on their way to cast votes they hope will bring changes they've been waiting on for years. "I think this is the most dysfunctional city I've known in my adult life," said Don, who ran a real estate appraisal business with Prudy until their retirement 13 years ago. Over the years, the couple said, whether the issue was regulating noise from the Van Nuys Airport, fixing streets and sidewalks, or attacking the prostitution trade that sometimes spills off Sepulveda Boulevard and practically to their doorstep, they've had to fight to get any attention from elected officials.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that Los Angeles has had its share of so-so mayors, and it'd be nice to have a great one for a change. Readers agreed, but said they weren't sure there was greatness in the current crop of candidates. And that was before Monday night's televised debate, which bolstered their point. For the most part, the five candidates came off as competent but not compelling. There was no presence, no magic, no star quality. "What an uninspiring bunch," wrote Peter Weinberger, a Pico-Robertson resident.

Before USC retires the jersey of Harold Miner, it ought to retire Gus Williams' jersey. Unlike Miner, he did not have a "cup of coffee" in the NBA; he broke the NBA career steals record (since broken by others) and won an NBA title with Seattle. Young people who follow USC have no concept of how good Williams was -- in the era of Wooden, Walton, Wilkes, Hollyfield and Lee (and banners) across town. HOWARD COHEN North Hills

After reading Pat Buchanan's piece on President Bush ("We'll All Soon Know What Bush Is Made Of," Op-Ed Page, Nov. 5), my immediate response is: Doesn't Buchanan know the difference between a fascist and a Marxist? How can a Marxist-Leninist like Daniel Ortega also be a fascist? That is like Ronald Reagan advocating total government intervention for all problems. HOWARD COHEN, Sepulveda

Dear Coach Barnett: There is another fine university in Los Angeles, a private one where the current coach is getting along in years, has NCAA sanctions on his resume and a record of underachieving, considering the talented athletes he persuades to play for him. As an alumnus of USC, I hope that when and if the head football coaching position opens up here, you will again consider a move to L.A. HOWARD COHEN Los Angeles

Re Al Gore endorsing Howard Dean, Dec. 9: How many times do the Democrats have to hear that former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is White House political advisor Karl Rove's "dream candidate" before they wake up and look to the centrists for their nominee? If it's Dean versus Bush in '04, look for a Democratic defeat sadly reminiscent of the George McGovern/Michael Dukakis fiascoes. A save might be possible with a Dean-Wesley Clark ticket, but the very thought brings to mind the highly unlikely image of flying pigs.
