Jamie Baker drank his first mint julep on Kentucky Derby day at Churchill Downs 14 years ago, when he was 12. "One thing about the Derby back then, they'd serve anybody," Baker said. "But it wasn't much of a drink." Growing up in Louisville, Baker forgot about mint juleps, but he has retained an interest in horse racing, and these days the Pacific Theater Ensemble is doing his long one-act play, "Don't Go Back to Rockville," in Venice.

A proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways that has been challenged by the U.S. Department of Justice has a 50 percent chance of succeeding. That was the analysis of JPMorgan of the proposal that, if successful, would create the nation's largest airline. "The industry dialogue has crescendoed, with airlines, pundits, bloggers, former CEOs, etc, all extolling the folly of DOJ's suit and certainty of an airline win (we frequently hear 75% probability). But when it comes to antitrust experts, we have yet to find any that believe the airlines face anything but a steep, uphill battle, with most citing probabilities below 40%," wrote JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker in a report Tuesday.

The moseying style of the early scenes in "Rockville," given a valid staging by Rancho Santiago College's Professional Actors Conservatory, reveals the local topography with the plot details in small but clear relief.
