King Juan Carlos I of Spain visited fishermen whose livelihoods are threatened by oil from a tanker that sank last month off the nation's northwest coast. Arriving by helicopter, the king met with residents and the local fishermen's association. He cast an occasional glance at the soles of his shoes as he walked in the muck of an oil-stained beach. "We know that the king can only bring us his solidarity, not a solution," said Javier Sar, head of the fishermen's association.

The king of Spain can mark up a pair of "firsts" from his Los Angeles stay: his first visit to a synagogue--and his first earthquake. The royal aplomb was shaken but not shattered by a little interruption called an earthquake, as a trembling arpeggio rippled the 30th-floor Century Plaza Hotel penthouse suite, where Juan Carlos I was reading, and his wife, Queen Sofia, was still in bed.

These days, it's tough being an 18th-Century monarch. Just ask, if you could, King Carlos III, the Spanish king who in 1781 ordered the creation of El Pueblo de La Reina de Los Angeles--or simply L.A. Carlos took a bashing Wednesday. The bashing was delivered by, of all people, the Los Angeles City Council. Never mind, for the moment, that the council had assumed it was bashing King Ferdinand of the 15th Century.

At an abandoned missile site overlooking the San Fernando Valley, they hunkered down under the scorching sun, and then the stars, to troll the far reaches of the airwaves.

I don't know what your definition of famous is. Muhammad Ali once came back from a trip to Moscow. I met him at the airport and asked: "Did they know you over there?" "Young man," Ali said, in that loud whisper of his, "there ain't no there where they don't know me." I don't know how famous you thought Magic Johnson was. Basketball is basically an American baby, after all. Born and raised there. But the game is big in Spain, and so is Johnson.
