A long-simmering dispute between the Orange County Crazies comedy troupe and the Pacific Symphony Orchestra could leave the troupe without a performance center, and possibly mean the end of the popular group, officials said Friday. The group and an affiliated business could be forced out of their local offices because of a new lease that nearly doubles their rent to $1,000 a month, executive director Cherie Kerr said Friday.

The Rolling Stones could have provided the script that New Voices Playwrights Workshop is following these days: You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need. What the playwrights' consortium wants is a theater to call its own. What it needs is a venue where it can showcase its members' full-length plays with full runs, as opposed to the short pieces it has staged in short-running productions at several local theaters.

Don't much like opera? Can't cotton to chamber music? Never cared for ballet or modern dance or took an interest in theater? Poetry and painting aren't for you and comedy doesn't cut it either? Don't despair. There may yet be something to ignite your imagination at Arts on the Green this weekend. This year, the free, two-day cultural Whitman's Sampler will culminate on Sunday at 5 p.m. with a Samoan Flaming Fire Knife Dance.

For nine years my assignment here was to cover criminal courts. Before then, I'd never sympathized much with the bad guys trotted off to prison. But the death penalty? Never. It always seemed incongruous that a lesson for would-be murderers was for the state to go into the murder business. But nine years of watching pukes go through the court system was a long time. And now one of them, William Bonin, is facing execution at San Quentin on Friday morning.
