I was saddened by the death of John D. MacDonald, author of the Travis McGee detective series. But my friends and co-workers who have not read any of his Travis McGee books or his hundreds of other writings are beginning to look at me strangely when I try to talk about my sadness. After all, I affectionately refer to the Travis McGee books as "my favorite tacky detective series" and recognize that most of them were written with a similar formula. How do I express my feelings about the death of an author I've read on and off for half my life?

A Saudi royal princess did not appear in court Monday on human trafficking charges, drawing a rebuke from an Orange County judge who said “I expect her to be here” for future hearings. Meshael Alayban, 42, is charged with forcing a Kenyan woman to work as a domestic servant, toiling long hours for little pay. Orange County Superior Court Judge Gerald Johnston said he was concerned that the princess did not show up in court, but could not find anything in the court record to indicate that her presence for the hearing had been ordered.

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood. How deeply Jewish is Hollywood?

Racing's first three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 lives here, just to the side of a county road winding toward Cottonwood Cove, down past the town cemetery to the softball field, where the sign reads: "Cross at your own risk." Cross the sandy wash, and more than likely you will find Louie Meyer--winner of the 1928, 1933 and 1936 Indy 500s--sitting on his porch, soaking up the dry warmth of a 100-plus-degree desert day.
