With an event that was part children's carnival, part boat party and part teach-in, Greenpeace's flagship, the Rainbow Warrior, made its first visit to the L.A. area. What the ship's environmental activists staged Saturday afternoon on the San Pedro docks was something akin to a high-school fair taken over by student radicals. This was an event sponsored by Greenpeace in which global warming, ozone depletion and rain forest destruction were as much a part of the party as the music and food.

A French secret agent convicted of manslaughter in the 1985 bombing of an anti-nuclear protest ship off New Zealand was freed Friday from exile at a French military base in the Pacific because she is pregnant, Premier Jacques Chirac said. Chirac said the return of Capt. Dominique Prieur respects a U.N.-mediated accord with New Zealand under which she was held. But New Zealand criticized the release.

Lest anyone question why the production department at St. Martin's might be getting mass ulcers, that house, which will publish Peter Meyer's "Defiant Patriot: The Life and Exploits of Lieutenant Oliver L. North" in September, is also rushing a book on TV evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker into print. The book, with an operative title of "Edge of Disaster," will be written by former Bakker bodyguard Mike Richardson and Harriet McDougal, a one-time editor at Tor Books.
