Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., said he will quit the ice cream company unless its new corporate parent Unilever names a co-chief executive steeped in the company's social mission. Unilever rejected the CEO candidate Cohen and co-founder Jerry Greenfield backed for the top spot at the South Burlington, Vt.-based ice cream maker. Cohen and Greenfield still are employed by the company, but they are not involved in its day-to-day operations.

Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., whose clever flavor names and socially responsible business style launched a cult following, could be going private--perhaps without Jerry. The maker of the Cherry Garcia and Chunky Monkey flavors confirmed Wednesday that it has held talks that could result in the firm going private in a deal involving Anglo-Dutch food and consumer products firm Unilever.

At a recent, vintage Ben & Jerry's press conference, Ben Cohen announced he was stepping down as CEO of the ice cream company he and Jerry Greenfield founded some 15 years ago. For the occasion, Cohen and Greenfield wore Uncle Sam-style top hats fashioned from ice cream containers and held up a poster bearing their pictures and the slogan, "We want you to be our CEO." All candidates were invited to enter a 100-word essay contest. The media lapped it up as eagerly as they would a pint of the company's super-premium ice cream, and the story was in all the papers the next day. Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc. has outgrown Cohen and Greenfield, but then, neither one ever imagined that the crepe and ice cream scoop shop they opened in an abandoned Burlington, Vt., gas station would ever grow to its current size, with $140 million in sales.

First prize was the job as CEO of the hugely successful Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc. ice cream company. Second prize was free Ben & Jerry's ice cream for life. Luckily, Taylor James Caldwell won second. He is only 3 years old and some of his marketing ideas are questionable. "Dinosaur flavor!" Taylor exclaimed, showing the gap in his front teeth when asked what flavors he would like Ben & Jerry's to sell. And how do you make "Dinosaur flavor"? "Gummi bears and chocolate!" Taylor answered.

Three have been fired and 10 have quit. Nine have been promoted. Two have killed suspects while on duty. And one stands accused of falsifying evidence in a murder case. For most of the 44 Los Angeles Police Department officers labeled "problem officers" in the landmark 1991 Christopher Commission report, the past four years have been tumultuous. The commission said its intention was to illustrate, not define, what it called "the problem of excessive force in the LAPD."

Los Angeles Police Officer Henry J. Cousine--a police ring on his finger, an LAPD tattoo on his leg and battle scars on his body--says the officers accused of beating Rodney G. King swung their batons like "little girls." Then he ticks off some of his own episodes of violence during a decade as a beat cop: three fights and three shootings. "You get in my face, I'm going to fight back," Cousine said. "You swing at me, I'm going to knock you off your feet. And you pull a gun, I'll kill you."
