It wasn't too long ago that center Jake Brendel was one of the fresh-faced kids on the UCLA football team's offensive line. Now, as a third-year sophomore, he is the veteran in charge. When he looks to his right, he sees nothing but true freshmen: Alex Redmond at right guard and Caleb Benenoch at right tackle. Redmond had been a starter all season and Benenoch was seeing plenty of playing time as a reserve before an injury during last week's game at Utah prompted a line shift.

After reading John Balzar's Nov. 16 commentary, "The United States of Concealment," I had to chuckle a bit when I finished the last paragraph, where he quotes the resident of the White House, saying, in part, "We will not allow this enemy to win the war by changing our way of life" and that we remain focused "on our principles." I find it funny that so many people--Balzar now--have yet to understand Republican rhetoric: Whatever they say, they mean pretty much the exact opposite. A. Lee Bower Redmond, Wash.

He received a three-year contract and will be introduced as the Marlins' fifth manager since mid-2010 on Friday.

The Orange County Museum of Art sold 18 California Impressionist paintings to an unnamed collector for $963,000. Was that a fair price, or a bonanza for the buyer? Some critics of the private sale say the art would have sold for at least twice as much at a public auction. "Silver and Gold" by Granville Redmond is the prize of the collection. Here is how the museum, and experts who specialize in California Impressionists, assessed its value.
