Bristol Retail Solutions Inc. said Wednesday that it has appointed its second interim chief executive because the planned purchase of Hayman Systems, which was supposed to provide Bristol with a new leader, is taking longer than expected. Bristol, which provides retail automation products and services, said in March that it had signed a letter of intent to buy Hayman and that the latter's owner, Richard Hayman, would become Bristol's chief executive when the deal closed.

Most industry analysts see 1995 as a year in which American buyers will gobble up about 15.5 million new cars and light trucks, up from 15 million in 1994. But Hyundai Motor America in Fountain Valley is looking for a slight dip, to 14.9 million sales.

Police departments selling guns for profit ("O.C. Police Take Heat for Selling Seized Guns," Feb. 25) is not only the ultimate in rationalization, it's the ultimate insult to law-abiding citizens. While the citizenry is coming up with creative, albeit desperate, ways to remove guns from the streets, the Orange and Huntington Beach police departments sell them for eventual redistribution back to where they came.
