The Department of Motor Vehicles bungled a computer project, violated contracting laws and squandered $50 million in the process. As a result, California has nothing to show after seven years of trying to merge the state's massive driver's license database and its motor vehicle registration information. It's no wonder that for so many the DMV has come to symbolize all that's wrong with government these days-- waste, inefficiency, too much bureaucracy. Everyone has a DMV horror story.

Is two or three weeks enough time for Washington's leaders to deal with a $170- billion budget deficit that threatens to eat the U.S. economy alive? Not if limiting the amount of state and local taxes that can be deducted on federal tax forms is the best idea they can produce. And not if Congress, which starts its August vacation Friday, can't tear itself away from raw politics and focus on negotiating a deficit package.

Untangling red tape isn't easy, especially when California is so wrapped up in it that it can barely breathe. But, finally--and to their considerable credit--Sacramento lawmakers have launched the great mummy-unwrapping effort. If they are successful, suffocating businesses will gain relief, people will look to the Capitol with greater respect and the state's economy will benefit.

Lust, decadence and obsession invade Pacific Resident Theatre with sardonic wit and chilling lack of sentiment in a daring, inventive staging of "Lulu"--which turns out to be a real Lulu of a play. Expect no mercy. Not that we'd ever seek pity for human fallibility from playwright Peter Barnes. In his savage black comedy "The Ruling Class," an innocuous Christlike kook achieved social respectability through his transformation into a latter-day Jack the Ripper.

There's a lot of power behind this year's new kids' fall lineup: The schedule is heavy with super-heroes and "based on the hit film" fare. Cartoons borrow from comic books and probably from Fox's "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers." But a few, such as ABC's "Bump in the Night," CBS' "Felix the Cat," HBO's "Little Lulu" and Nickelodeon's "The Secret World of Alex Mack" may prove to be more interesting.

As preparations continue to move the last ailing elephant from the city's zoo, officials say it will be years before visitors see another. The elephant exhibit is scheduled to close once Lulu, a 38-year-old African pachyderm with chronic health problems, is moved to a sanctuary run by the Performing Animal Welfare Society in the Sierra foothills. She is the fourth elephant to die or move this year from the antiquated half-acre exhibit.

What really happened to Clyde and Lulu Dayton? The health food pioneer known as the "Red-Ripe Honey-Man" and his wife were shot and burned to death in their isolated cabin more than 80 years ago, their deaths officially unsolved. Now, a distant relative thinks he has the answer. But even he doesn't know what happened to their buried treasure. Clyde Dayton was something of a demented, miserly eccentric.

A diamond blue '61 Thunderbird sits in the driveway. At the top of the steep stairway is a small tropical garden of queen palms and fragrant plumeria with a lanai that's open to the breezes. Chords of Martin Denny's "Quiet Village" float in the hot, dry air. Welcome to Jarrett Hedborg's mid-century modern Hawaiian paradise. "I'm not into historical re-creations but into setting a mood," says the interior designer about his hillside home in Sherman Oaks.

A 74-year-old grandmother was ordered to stand trial Monday on charges of murdering her estranged son-in-law, whom she allegedly lured to her house under the pretense of picking up his children. After hearing emotional testimony from the victim's father, who witnessed the shooting, Van Nuys Municipal Judge Jessica Perrin Silvers ruled there was enough evidence against Jo Lulu Haynes to warrant a Superior Court trial.

British handbag designer Lulu Guinness is having the kind of euphoric interlude that comes with being new to this sun- and star-filled city. "I want to live here," she says in her high-pitched, high-class English accent. "Everyone is so charming!" Wearing a vintage black lace cocktail dress, she is standing near a shelf of satin shoes while a party celebrating the opening of her first West Coast shop is swirling around her. Her eponymous boutique, on West 3rd Street in L.A.
