It's getting hot. Must be time to talk about: Sunset Junction 2008. On this year's bill: Broken Social Scene, the Black Keys, Cold War Kids and Kinky. Yessir, I'm bringing lots of sunblock this year. (Saturday) One can never talk enough about: "Gossip Girl." The second season is almost here -- Sept. 1, write it down -- but until then, I'll indulge in some Season 1 marathons on DVD. The new ad campaign of choice criticisms -- "Every parent's worst nightmare," says the Boston Herald; "A nasty piece of work," says the New York Post -- is simply inspired.

MOST Blonde Redhead fans assume that the worst time in singer-guitarist Kazu Makino's life was after the accident. In 2002, she was thrown from a horse, which then trampled her jaw, crushing facial bones that needed massive reconstructive surgery. Makino's mouth was wired shut, and she convalesced for months.

Re "Latino leaders' silence is killing us," Opinion, March 21 Kerman Maddox does a great service in sounding an important alarm. Now that Latinos are just a census count or two away from constituting an outright majority of the population of Los Angeles, it is incumbent on their leaders -- who are soon to be, if they are not already, all of our leaders -- to confront racism and prejudice in the community. As they embark on taking over the mantle of local leadership, it is their obligation and mandate to foster racial and interethnic harmony and collaboration.

For once, state and local officials hope there will be traffic clogs this morning at the junction of the 10 and 605 freeways. They will be meeting there in Baldwin Park, on the Athol Street bridge overlooking the often-congested interchange, to show state transportation officials the need to fund improvements from $2.8 billion in bond money that will be divided next week.
