When Michael Ovitz is able to prove that 16 million people can drive to Carson in 30 minutes, I will gather two or three of my friends and write a check to underwrite in full his proposed stadium and mall. GORDON COHN, Long Beach Michael Ovitz and the Carson City Council want a football stadium in Carson. They promise that it would be an economic boon to the city. If Ovitz is so convinced that an NFL stadium in Carson will be such a benefit to the city, then surely he will want to live in Carson near the stadium.

In the name of improved stadium security and speed of entry, the NFL is limiting the size and type of bags fans bring in to venues, beginning with exhibition games this summer. Only clear plastic, vinyl or thick plastic handbags no larger than 12-inches by 6-inches by 12-inches will be allowed, with the exception of necessary medical items. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags will be allowed, as will small clutch bags approximately the size of a hand. Prohibited items include purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, seat cushions, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.
