Some pretty weird stuff is on display in Japan. There are, for example, a 29-foot tapeworm, a collection of ruined laundry and a very big, bright-red sock made for pro wrestler Giant Baba. This is a land of obsessive collectors and odd museums. "If Japanese are rich, they collect paintings; if they are not rich, they collect whatever they can," said Hideo Nishioka, director of a museum of Tokyo's history. He collects toilet paper, ashtrays and cookbooks.

Julie Alexander saw the three-paragraph item in The Times on Nov. 14 that described the gruesome death of "Jose Garcia, 34, of Santa Ana" and thought, "Nah, no chance." There must be dozens of young Jose Garcias in Santa Ana. What were the chances of it being the Jose Garcia she'd come to know and greatly admire from the English-language classes she'd taught in Santa Ana? The one who was coming to her home in a few days to give dance lessons to some of her other students?

It is an improbable source of mom-and-apple-pie-wisdom: a laundry company's signboard on a dowdy strip of Anaheim Street at the edge of the Cambodian business district. Yet there, week in and week out, year after year, Nuway Linen and Uniform Rental Service of Long Beach dispenses doses of homey sayings in four lines of 80 characters or less. Drivers never know, cruising down Anaheim, what gem of Ann Landers-like advice will confront them, encouraging, teasing or sermonizing. "If you worry about missing the boat, remember the Titanic," Nuway counsels the keep-up-with-the-Joneses set. "To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing," the laundry instructs the sensitive.

One candidate is a prominent Beverly Hills Democrat, a veteran of more than three decades in Congress. The other is a wealthy Manhattan Beach businessman, a first-time contender who ditched the Republican Party to become independent. One has the president's endorsement; the other, a former L.A. mayor's. It's Rep. Henry A. Waxman vs. Bill Bloomfield, battling in a newly drawn congressional district that has brought the officeholder his first real contest since 1975. They're already warring in TV ads and voters' mailboxes, something Waxman's constituents haven't seen in a long time.
