The neighborhood seemed perfect for the two Hollywood artists. Nestled beneath the Hollywood sign, the duplex that first-time homeowners John Sullivan and Carrie Dennis bought was near the studios he deals with and the Hollywood Bowl where she performs. The place was built in 1924 by a man who used a mule and gold-mining equipment as collateral, then bought by a woman who had gotten a loan from actress Mary Pickford. When Sullivan and Dennis acquired the home, it was owned by a painter who used one of the units as a studio.

  First fine of the day? Could be going to Ndamukong Suh, the controversial Detroit defensive tackle, whose low block on an interception return wiped out a Lions' pick-six. Early in the second quarter against Minnesota, Christian Ponder's pass for Jerome Simpson on a quick slant was deflected. The ball was picked off by DeAndre Levy and returned 34 yards for an apparent touchdown. But the score was wiped out by a flag on Suh, who dived at the knees of Vikings lineman John Sullivan.

"The past is a funny thing," John Sullivan (Jim Caviezel) says in "Frequency," an effective but finally overreaching science-fiction thriller, but even he doesn't yet appreciate just how out of the ordinary it can be. Cleverly written by Toby Emmerich and tightly directed by the very capable Gregory Hoblit, "Frequency" takes a standard sci-fi stratagem and runs with it. No, its plot doesn't make conventional sense, but we are happy to buy into it--at least up to a point.

The opening game of the season was most likely the closing game of the season for Denver Gold safety Tom Sullivan of Northridge. Sullivan underwent knee surgery Monday morning at a Denver hospital to repair torn ligaments and cartilage damage suffered in the team's 31-10 United States Football League loss Sunday to Oakland.

The Coast Guard pilot who decided not to investigate a distress signal from the ill-fated Fish-n-Fool defended his actions at a hearing Monday, saying his plane was too low on fuel to make a search. Lt. James Stinson said he had no way of knowing that the alarm he picked up on Feb. 6 was coming from a vessel that had capsized off the coast of Mexico resulting in the loss of 10 of the 12 persons aboard.

Pulphead Essays John Jeremiah Sullivan Farrar, Straus & Giroux: 384 pp., $16 paper Reading a great essay is like seeing a writer's brain working, ideas in motion caught by a flash of lightning. It's like sitting down with a smart college friend for a conversation that jumps and leaps and connects, in which you have to only nod and say "wow" from time to time. This is a trick, of course - essays are anything but extemporaneous - but John Jeremiah Sullivan's first collection, "Pulphead," has it all. It is thoughtful, electric and alive.

He looks at us through mists of time, from faded, crinkled 19th-Century photographs. It's the jaw that draws you to him. Massive, clean, squared off. The jaw shows that here, plainly, is a man from the warriorclass. And he was. He was Jack Dempsey, decades before anyone ever heard of that other Jack Dempsey, the 1920s heavyweight champion who took his name. The original Jack Dempsey was also known as "the Nonpareil," which means without equal.
