Raul Ruiz, 70, a Chilean-born filmmaker who made more than 100 films in his teeming, international career and worked to put cinema on an artistic par with literature, died Friday at a Paris hospital following complications from a pulmonary infection, said Francois Margolin, a producer of several of the director's films. A favorite of cinephiles, Ruiz rebelled against the conventions of moviemaking in an extensive, varied body of work that didn't result in a widely known masterpiece but left behind a vast, labyrinthine collection of experiments, curiosities and innovations.

It will be months before the campaign arms of the major parties will decide which races to spend heavily on in their efforts to pick up House seats this fall. But both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and its GOP counterpart, the National Republican Congressional Committee, already are taking jabs at opponents in several California "swing" districts. On Wednesday, Democrats launched an online ad slamming Republican Assemblyman Jeff Gorell of Camarillo, who is challenging Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village)

WASHINGTON - Seven California Democrats broke with the majority of their party and President Obama on Friday to support Republican-sponsored legislation that would allow insurance companies to continue to offer health plans next year even if they fail to meet the requirements of Obamacare. "The president promised Americans that they could keep their health plans, and today I voted to keep that promise," said Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Oak Park), who voted for the measure, which passed 261-157.

Re "Patt Morrison Asks: Raul Ruiz, an Rx for D.C.," Opinion, Jan. 23 It was heartening to read the transcript of newly elected Rep. Raul Ruiz's (D-Palm Desert) interview with Patt Morrison. Although Ruiz's academic credentials and medical background are impressive, his intelligent and perceptive answers are reassuring. Regardless of party affiliation, one can only wish that more like him are called to public service and that he doesn't get trapped in the seeming quagmire that congressional partisan politics have become.

You'd almost think that someone had stapled several resumes together and put them in Raul Ruiz's file: magna cum laude at UCLA; three graduate degrees from Harvard (a medical degree and masters in public policy and in public health); doctoring to poor people on three continents and at home in the poor reaches of the Coachella Valley, where his adoptive parents were migrant workers; an Army award for helping Haiti earthquake victims. And he plays trumpet and dances baile folklorico.

The Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum has a new home, and it's in a shopping mall. The city's premier showcase for contemporary art has only moved a half block, but the change is dramatic. No longer squirreled away behind a storefront on De la Guerra--as it has been since 1981--the forum now has a second-floor vantage point in Paseo Nuevo, a brand-new commercial development on State Street. Visitors will get their first look at the forum's snazzy new digs on Saturday, 5 to 8 p.m.

When Boyle Heights shop owner Arturo Macias hears fellow Latinos use the Spanish word for "wetback," he doesn't necessarily take offense. Macias, who crossed illegally into the U.S. through Tijuana two decades ago, has heard the term " mojado " for much of his life and sees it less as an insult than a description of a common immigrant experience. "As a country of immigrants," he says in Spanish, "in one way or another, we're all mojados . " Macias is very offended, however, when he hears a non-Latino say "wetback.

Spanish-language station KVEA-TV Channel 52 in Glendale came under fire again Thursday from protesters who allege that the station discriminates against Mexican-American employees. The latest Mexican-American figure to leave the station was 11 p.m. anchor Alberto Aguilar, whose contract was not renewed last week. Frank Cruz, the station's general manager, was replaced in February, followed in June by news director Bob Navarro.
