When the reset button on the computer of their beleaguered aircraft lit up, flight crew members did what almost anyone would do--they pushed it. That simple and logical act brought down their plane and raised serious questions about the future of the Marine Corps' $40-billion Osprey project. According to the Marines' official report Thursday on the fatal V-22 Osprey crash, the Dec. 11, 2000, accident began when a hydraulic line ruptured.

SOCHI, Russia - Almost lost in Team USA's 7-1 rout of Slovakia on Thursday in its Olympic tournament opener was that winger Dustin Brown scored for the first time in a month. Yes, it had been a full month since he last scored a goal. “Don't remind me,” the Kings' captain said Friday, laughing. Brown has struggled noticeably this season, producing only 10 goals and 16 points in 58 games with the Kings. Before Thursday's game here, his last goal was on Jan. 13 in a 1-0 victory for the Kings over Vancouver.

It would be refreshing if he finally stepped up and admitted, as even the marginally educated fan already knows, that he made a colossal mistake. Manti Te'o? Nope. Jim Buss. Bud Chapman Northridge :: You can fool some Lakers fans some of the time and some Lakers fans all of the time, but you can't fool all of the Lakers fans all of the time.

It was just a few ticks of the clock before midnight Thursday when Ed Orgeron blended his own feelings into those of USC football fans. "Today, I woke up happy," he said, "and I'm not a happy guy. " Friday morning, most USC fans, who had been like Orgeron, woke up the same. Orgeron called USC's 38-31 victory over Arizona "an A-plus. " In most ways, he was right. The Trojans needed to win. Period. Be it a fluke, or by a bad call. Even the lights going out and changing the momentum.

Rick Santorum's latest attempt to use a Mitt Romney aide's "Etch-A-Sketch" remark against the Republican front-runner instead gave his rival a chance to fire back on Thursday, after Santorum seemed to say he'd rather see President Obama reelected than send Romney to the White House. Speaking at an event in Texas, Santorum again made the case that Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom's comments Wednesday on CNN about a "reset" of the campaign if Romney clinched the nomination showed the former Massachusetts governor's efforts to appeal to conservatives were insincere.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Another one of your roaming moods kicks in. As a rule, you'd rather stay away from routine, even if it takes more energy. For you, the adventure is worth it. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Strike "should" from your vocabulary. Today you'll be inclined to leap into each choice with all your heart, and that's why people will follow you. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Making lemonade from lemons is too passe for you. You'll turn your lemons into something more exciting -- a flaming sorbet or a fancy pie. You create magic and entertainment.

The nation's largest video game publisher has shuffled its senior management team and realigned its internal structure without telling investors or the public. As outlined in internal memos obtained by The Times, Santa Monica-based Activision Blizzard Inc. has divided itself into four units, with one focused on the military video game Call of Duty, another handling other company-owned titles such as Guitar Hero and the Tony Hawk skateboarding games, and a third handling licensed properties.

Manhattan Beach Open officials just want a second chance, that's all. Sure, they know fans, sponsors and players were burned by pro beach volleyball a year ago when the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals shut down its tour and took the sport's credibility with it. But they hope the reincarnation of the sport's crown jewel tournament, which begins Thursday with qualifying rounds and holds its finals Sunday, will be such a smash hit for the Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series that the scorned fall back in love.

As the UCLA basketball team gathered at Pauley Pavilion for a recent workout, Malcolm Lee looked from player to player, trying to single out a preordained leader. "Could be anybody," the sophomore guard said. "We're basically starting from the ground up." Well, it might seem like that for the Bruins, but as official practice for the 2009-10 college basketball season begins Friday, USC is the team in town that is really starting over. UCLA lost four of five starters from last season, with seniors Alfred Aboya, Josh Shipp and Darren Collison moving on and freshman Jrue Holiday jumping early to the NBA. But USC also has only one starter back, its three best players having left school early.

If you've paid a little attention lately, you've heard all the sides of the public-broadcasting debate, about the legislators eager to de-fund PBS, shut down NPR, privatize the stations with the glee of 13-year-olds given the opportunity to sell their junior high school lunchroom to McDonald's. A lot of people would be sad if the public radio stations all started playing soft hits of the '70s instead of Silvia Pogiolli.
