Florida rolled to a 24-6 victory in its season opener against Toledo on Saturday, but Coach Will Muschamp was anything but happy during his postgame news conference. At least he was unhappy with certain media outlets at that news conference. After discussing the game, Muschamp went on a tirade lasting more than two minutes calling out the Gainesville Sun, the Palm Beach Post and Gator Country for incorrectly reporting that freshman defensive linemen Jaynard Bostwick had been suspended for the game.

While your articles on the new Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach were interesting (Calendar Weekend, June 18), I am very angry at the lack of public transportation information. The article by Douglas P. Shuit ("Riding a New Wave") mentions the driving directions and reports a recent traffic jam on the 710 Freeway. Have any of you thought about why the freeways and streets are so congested? Perhaps if The Times and other media outlets offered transit information, more people would ride, and traffic would decrease!

DENVER -- James Egan Holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater on July 20, is expected to be in court Thursday in a hearing to unseal more details about the case.
