Fashion, as we know, is fickle. Styles change. Trends come into flower, and are gone in a few short weeks like gladiolus withering on a grave. What's in goes out, and when it's back again, it has a brand-new name. Take color. A building block of the style world. There was a time when fashion hues had names as plain as crayons: Violet. Rust. Blue-green. Burnt orange. That time of straight talk is gone forever, drowned by the swelling tide of euphemism that has swamped the marketing world.

I've covered some unusual pet stories, ranging from a woman who performed mouth-to-beak resuscitation on her drowned parakeet to an iguana who could eat popcorn while standing on its hind feet. But when a lost flamingos poster arrived in my mail (see photo), I was suspicious. And it turned out to be a hoax, as I learned when I called the Manhattan Beach number on the flier.

It wasn't enough that Mike Nichols had pledged $1.5 million of his own money in a bidding war for the film rights to the best-selling "Primary Colors," a roman a clef based on Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign.

And since this decade's designers have been rehashing '80s fashion trends (shoulder-padded blazers, baggy "boyfriend" jeans and wide belts), the timing is right for the Swiss watchmaker to make its resurgence. Swatch, which made the late graffiti artist Keith Haring a household name, again looks to the street for its latest artistic collaboration this summer.

Ending a mystery but opening a new set of questions that roiled the worlds of publishing and journalism, Joe Klein, the Newsweek political writer and CBS commentator, confessed Wednesday that he was the anonymous author of the best-selling novel "Primary Colors" and that he had publicly lied about it. "There were times when I've had to lie to protect a source, and I put this in that category," Klein said at a Manhattan news conference in which he admitted having written the book.

The Southland's Danza Floricanto/USA turned the norms of folklorico programming inside out during its cheerfully subversive 20th anniversary performance at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Sunday afternoon. Where nearly every other company uses Jalisco fiesta dancing as its finale, Floricanto's "El Encanto de Jalisco" opened the program.
