If the Soviets continue to line up for Big Macs and fries, can home videos be far behind? Rich Ray believes the Soviet Union is ready for a new form of communication: VideoPals. Instead of sending your pal a letter, you send a home video. "I thought it would be great to use home video for more than home movies," said Ray, the 30-year-old owner of Array Communications in Orange, a firm that produces corporate videos.

Re "Playground reform," editorial, July 31 You argue correctly that true reform of the Los Angeles Unified School District can happen only if proposals are not beholden to political interests. Mayoral micromanagement is not the way to accomplish this goal. True reform can happen only by giving parents the choice to respond to bad schools by sending their children to private schools. The only way this can happen is if Los Angeles implements a comprehensive voucher system. Healthy competition would provide an impetus for L.A. Unified to improve and truly level the playing field, allowing the poorest families to send their children to schools exclusive to the rich.

Each disc is devoted to a particular artist: Charlie Rich, Ray Price, David Houston, Johnny Horton, Jimmy Dean, Sonny James, Stonewall Jackson and Bob Luman.

It's hard to imagine where a thief might hide an antique, convertible sports car with wooden-spoke wheels, green engine, brass carburetor and a price tag of at least $72,000. But it's a problem both police and automobile connoisseurs thought long and hard about Monday. "It's kind of hard to drive such a car around inconspicuously," said San Diego Police Lt. Charles Grimm. 'Stick Out Like Sore Thumb' Garry Saylor, owner of Classic Car Co.

On the surface, the sixth annual SoCal Jazzfest today and Sunday at the Grand Hotel is a gathering of some of Southern California's better known traditional and Dixieland bands. Look a little deeper at the personnel in these outfits, and you'll find a lot of jazz history as well. Take Chris Kelly's Black and White Jazz Band, a Preservation Hall-style group that plays Sunday.

There is something unnerving about watching Brittany Murphy portray a kooky, klutzy daughter of a deceased rock legend in "Uptown Girls." Director Boaz Yakin has her constantly going over the top and flailing about in all directions in a misguided attempt at madcap comedy. Murphy, who looks like she could use a good rest, strives mightily to accommodate him but ends up seeming merely strained when she's supposed to come across as irresistibly charming despite her character's erratic ways.
