Between the idea and the Reality, 23-year-old magazine publisher Brian Solis spends bleary-eyed hours at his personal computer. From his Canoga Park apartment, Solis produces a free, black-and-white fashion publication, called Reality Magazine, the first 30,000 copies of which were distributed to restaurants and shopping centers in the Valley and other parts of Los Angeles in January. "It keeps me stressed," Solis said. "But I love to watch people picking it up to read."

When we think of realism in the the '30s and '40s we think of provincial social realist styles that pushed the New York school into abstraction. In the '40s, Milton Avery was one of the few links between the modernist legacy of Matisse and contemporary representational art. In a mini show of small paintings and a few etchings, Avery demonstrates the broad simplified color planes for which he is noted.

Maybe The Times doesn't care about the jobs for Californians, but I, and many of my colleagues, do. I refer to your editorial (Aug. 22), "Taxing in the Dark." As the author of Senate Bill 85, which would reform the state's unitary tax system, I was surprised to see The Times revert to old-time liberal anti-business rhetoric without understanding the facts and then suggest that we, as legislators, are the ones who are confused. The point of SB 85 is very simple and straightforward.

There has been much talk among city leaders in recent years about making Irvine one of the state's most "business-friendly" cities. The September issue of California Business magazine says that Irvine has arrived, selecting it as the second-best mid-size city in the state in which to do business. "We've had an unjust reputation that because of being a new city, we had some unnecessary regulations in place," said Irvine City Manager Paul O. Brady Jr. "It was more perception than reality."

How real is television "reality"? Although TV has always indulged in wordspin, its tongue is especially slippery these days in deploying such white lies as "reality," self-serving euphemisms and other glossy terms to deceptively market products and ideas. It's not only TV, of course. Just as real estate ads promote rickety houses as needing your "tender loving care," however, and clunkers formerly known as used cars are now "pre-owned," our old TV friend, the "rerun," has gained stature too.

Honk If You Love Jesus' Zone Defense: Does God care who wins the Super Bowl? Absolutely, say a number of players interviewed in a recent issue of Sports Illustrated. Green Bay guard Adam Timmerman, for example, prays for victory in order to "have an even bigger platform" to evangelize non-Christians. "People listen to winners more than they do to losers," he says. But several theologians in SI scoff at the idea of divine intervention in sports.

The lunchtime crowd at the Virtual World game center in Walnut Creek is gearing up to do battle. A guide briefs the virtual reality pilots on their mission: to annihilate each other's computer-simulated humanoid tanks. A novice player, code-named "Bruin," enters a simulated cockpit. On computer screens in the cockpit appear images of enemies manning the other tanks, "Speed," "Malik" and "Tardio."
