The body of a 23-year-old Long Beach man was found Sunday in a car that apparently went off west-bound Ortega Highway and plummeted 250 feet down the side of a cliff, authorities said. The victim was identified as Bradley Ennis Hackman, who had left his father's home in Murrieta Hot Springs about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, said coroner's investigator Richard McAnally. He had complained of feeling tired and ill at the time, the investigator added.

My sympathies go out to Navy Lt. Kathleen Mazure, the officer who has run afoul of the Navy's medieval class and caste system by having sexual relations with and later marrying, egad, a lowly enlisted man of, say again?, the Marine Corps ("She Marries a Corporal--Now Faces Court-Martial," Part I, May 13). When the Navy was founded in 1775 at the outset of the Revolutionary War, it adopted almost intact the customs and traditions of its enemy, the aristocratic British Royal Navy.

The San Diego State athletic department fell $151,000 short of anticipated football ticket sales revenue last season but expects to make up much of the difference from increased revenue and savings in other areas, the department reported Thursday. The department received approximately $1.27 million from football ticket sales, less than the department budgeted but more than officials said they feared they might raise before they launched a late-season plea for public support.

I had joked with a friend the night before: "Doreen, tomorrow I have one of my toughest assignments in 10 years at the paper. I have to take a mud bath at Murrieta Hot Springs." She gushed: "Take me with you!" Now I wish she had gone without me. The stench, familiar to most anyone who has been to a spa, hit the moment I walked in the door. Trying to keeping an open mind, I thought: It's a good stench, the stench of replenishment, rejuvenation, health.
