West Hollywood City Councilman John Duran said Friday that he has filed paperwork to run for termed-out Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky's seat and expects to make a formal announcement later this year. "I am calling supporters now to get people's ideas on whether they think I can win, and I'm getting a lot of favorable responses…. I am inclined to run," Duran said in an interview.

When I read that the new math curriculum will put greater emphasis on the mechanics of long division than on using long division to solve problems (Sept. 13), I tried unsuccessfully to remember the last time I did long division with pencil and paper, rather than using my $3 calculator, as I often do.

Re "Budget Limits Air Marshal Staffing," Sept. 15: What possible explanation other than sheer craziness and incompetence on the part of our leader in the fight against terrorism can there be for his not providing enough money for a full corps of air marshals, surely the most effective means of thwarting future terrorist hijackings?

LIVERPOOL, England -- At first blush, John Terry's racism trial looked like much ado about nothing. But it could turn out to be worse than that. Because though the case leveled at the former England national team captain was meant to stamp out racism in the sport, it may unwittingly be having the opposite effect. Terry, a defender for European champion Chelsea and one of the more controversial players in the English Premier League, was acquitted by a British court earlier this month of racial abuse.

An Angels camp that has been buoyed by the uplifting story of Kelvim Escobar's remarkable recovery from shoulder surgery was hit by a double dose of bad news Wednesday. Ace John Lackey was shut down because of elbow tightness, an injury that could jeopardize his opening-day start against Oakland on April 6. And Torii Hunter was knocked out of Wednesday's 18-11 exhibition victory over Colorado in the first inning when Jeff Baker's long drive hit the wall and caromed into Hunter's nose.

Arguably, he was the world's first reality TV star.
