Sen. Jim Ellis (R-San Diego), a low-key but stalwart member of the Senate's bloc of conservative Republicans since 1980, announced Tuesday that he will retire rather than seek reelection to a third term in the Legislature's upper house. Ellis, 59, said he decided to step down because he had gradually lost enthusiasm for the job during the past year. "Politicians have a phrase for it--fire in the belly," Ellis said. "I guess the fire just went out, and I don't know why."

The role of Jim Ellis, the steely-eyed swim coach who turns five scraggly teens from inner-city Philadelphia into a championship swim team, is the kind most actors would tear into like a well-cooked steak. But Terrence Howard comes at the part like he's stalking live prey. Handed a mess of rousing speeches and believe-in-yourself bromides, Howard plays to the front row instead of the cheap seats, rarely raising his voice, as if he expects his young charges to lean in and listen to every word.

Judge Bob Perkins denied arguments from attorneys for John Colyandro and Jim Ellis that the charges were based on an unconstitutionally vague law and that the indictments were improperly worded.

I was appalled to read that state Sen. Jim Ellis would like to throw all atheists into jail ("Coalition Formed to Keep Hilltop Crosses," Nov. 19). Is this his "final solution" to dealing with the ever-increasing numbers of non-Christians in our proud land? Coming on the 50th anniversary of the beginning of another "final solution" to eliminate non-Christians, Sen. Ellis owes both the atheists and the American public an apology.

A state district judge told Rep. Tom DeLay's lawyers that he wouldn't schedule hearings in the Texas Republican's money-laundering and conspiracy case until after Christmas. Judge Pat Priest said he would be working on other cases and would not be available until Dec. 27 to take up pending motions in DeLay's case, which stems from a 2002 campaign finance controversy.
