Wednesday night, for the second week in a row, Lexus Jazz at the Bowl showcased the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra with a female singer named Wilson. Last week the first name was Cassandra, this week it was Nancy. Yet despite the difference in vocal styles, the programming situations were strikingly similar. Once again, it was the orchestra, opening the show with a kaleidoscopic set of full-spectrum big band pieces, that dominated the evening.

After hearing some of Little George Bush's Republican rhetoric, I wish Hillary was running for president instead of just for the Senate. I really think she could carry the vote against these males. And I'd love to torture all the Clinton-haters for another eight years. What fun! NANCY WILSON Hollywood

Heart is rarely noted as an influence on contemporary female rockers. Not like Chrissie Hynde or the Runaways. But back in the '70s, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson at the band's creative core were forcefully taking on Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith with a blend of hard rock and acoustic torch songs.

Take the money and run, or take a risk. Those were options facing Ann and Nancy Wilson when they were setting up a 1999 summer tour. The lucrative option was to reactivate Heart. Resurrecting the Seattle rock band would have been the safer, more profitable choice, given that Heart has sold some 29 million albums worldwide since its 1976 debut, "Dreamboat Annie." Instead, the Wilsons decided to tour for the first time as a stripped-down duo.

The 65-mph speed limit on the 10 Freeway is much too fast for the amount of traffic and a roadway always under construction. The situation is much too dangerous. What's with all the passing on the right? Isn't there driver's education in this state? I try and stay to the right and then move out for merging traffic. Yet oncoming speeders behind me often refuse to yield to my left turn signal (and even speed up). This is not acceptable. Everyone else has to pay high insurance rates for idiots who can't drive.
