Make no mistake about it, most people don't like to get up before a large group to give a speech. At least, that's what members of the six Conejo Valley chapters of Toastmasters International will tell you. Toastmasters is a group in which people learn to step up to the microphone with confidence. And members explain their involvement by reciting their view that the fear of public speaking outranks the fear of death 2-to-1.

For many Orange County executives, 1991 was a year when their pay packages came under greater shareholder scrutiny and corporate boards were cautious in handing out cash bonuses and perks.

Daytona International Speedway plans to slash its grandstand seating by 31%, to 101,000 seats from 146,000, as part of a renovation of the track that's expected to cost up to $400 million. The overhaul would include removing the grandstands on the 2.5-mile speedway's back straightaway while enhancing the frontstretch grandstands at the 54-year-old home of NASCAR's Daytona 500 . Every seat on the frontstretch "will be replaced with wider and more comfortable seating, with more restrooms and concession stands throughout the facility," International Speedway Corp., which owns the track, said Tuesday.

All his life, Andre Malraux courted greatness. In 1996, 20 years after his death, he was accorded the French apotheosis of it. His remains were interred in the Pantheon to lie with those of Voltaire, Rousseau, Hugo and Zola. But does he deserve to rest there? Or was he, as Simon Leys writes in the New York Review of Books, "essentially phony?" These are questions raised by Curtis Cate's entertaining biography of this strange and complicated man.
