Before answering the last of the journalists' questions, Amormino spotted a light-colored Explorer circling the complex's parking lot and excused himself to write down the license plate number.

Washington Redskin kicker Max Zendejas says he "didn't appreciate" what some of his teammates said about him when he was placed on injured reserve with a groin pull after a bad game in Denver. Zendejas, speaking publicly about his situation for the first time, said he "felt sorry" for three teammates who made jokes about his performance or his ethnic background after he badly missed two field goals and one extra point in a 31-30 loss to the Broncos.

When you've spent all your life in the same country, you don't notice things that to foreigners seem both strange and remarkable. Few Americans, for instance, walk around saying, "Hey, we live in a classless society." But, to people who come to California from more stratified and traditional countries, the marvel of that achievement is exceeded only by the fact that our telephone system works.

The days of renters anxiously scouring neighborhoods with ads and Thomas Bros. guides in hand may soon be over. Some rental property Web sites now offer "virtual tours" (primarily of ritzy digs in Marina del Rey and West Hollywood) in which you and your trusty mouse pan through an apartment. And, really, which renter-to-be wouldn't be wooed by pixilated living rooms, breakfast nooks and poolside patios? Jed Katz, founder of Rent Net, a 4-year-old Web site (http://www.rent.

In the late 1950s, Jimmy Swaggart was roaming around the back roads of Louisiana in a broken-down Chevrolet, earning about $40 a week from his preaching and gospel singing. He has come a long way since then. The controversial evangelist now heads a tax-exempt enterprise that ranks, by almost any measure, as one of the most successful of its kind. Jimmy Swaggart World Ministries and its Bible college boasted revenues of $150 million in 1987--more than $500,000 each working day.

I sympathize with all the people complaining about the gardener's leaf-blowing machines causing noise pollution. Noise does get on one's nerves and causes people to become irritable. However, the amount of time these machines create noise is very brief and occurs only about once a week. My complaint is against the wizards in the Department of Building and Safety who say it is legal to place a Jacuzzi motor in a side yard, as long as it is five feet from the property. I take it the mental giants who dreamed up this legality do not live next door to a Jacuzzi owner.
