"Last year there were these heavy rains, and when the sky over the ocean finally began to clear, it became filled with these clouds that looked just like Mickey Mouse ears to me," says artist Roger Brown. Thus was born the latest body of work for this artist long associated with the city of Chicago, who now spends a portion of each year in his newly built home in this little town south of Santa Barbara.

The plural in"Headhunters"is not accidental. Though it starts with one man and his conventional-seeming job as a corporate headhunter, before this twisty Norwegian thriller is over two individuals are involved in nonstop pursuit of each other for the highest possible stakes. Like life and death. Taken from the fiendishly plotted novel by Jo Nesbo, one of Scandinavia's top mystery writers, "Headhunters" is a dark adult entertainment, a wild and bloody adrenaline rush of a movie that deals in gleeful grotesqueness and over-the-top implausibilities.

The Senate opened debate Monday on President Bush's contentious nomination of California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown to the federal bench, with Republicans praising her as a "great talent" and Democrats deriding her as a conservative ideologue. The arguments were familiar ones concerning Brown.

Well, so much for tradition and drama and tension and all the other perks that come with the annual Mater Dei-Servite High School football package. Servite's Derek Brown put a firm cleat mark in all that stuff as he rushed for 334 yards on 26 carries and 4 touchdowns, to help his team to a 44-12 Angelus League victory over Mater Dei Thursday in Santa Ana Stadium in front of 8,500.

Within the sprightly, well-ordered world of Roger Brown's paintings lurks a profound unrest. The lollipop trees, perfect, ice-cream-scoop hills and cookie-cutter high-rises house a diseased humanity, a species plagued by disaster, violence and an urge toward self-destruction. The retrospective of Brown's work at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art doesn't look so foreboding at first.

Roger Brown knows, first-hand, about the darker forces lurking beneath pretty surfaces. The renowned painter moved from his longtime home in Chicago several years ago to the sunny seaside town of La Conchita, just in time to witness the massive mudslides, which nearly consumed his adopted hometown. He couldn't have asked for a better subject. Locals might even wonder if the artist didn't bring a bit of dour luck with him.

President Bush is expected to nominate California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, administration officials and sources close to Brown said Friday. The appointment, pending completion of FBI background checks, would be apt to meet stiff resistance from Senate Democrats concerned that the conservative jurist is being groomed for an even higher judicial post.

BOOKS
April 4, 1993 | Roger Welsch, Welsch is a correspondent/commentator on the CBS news show "Sunday Morning."
Actually, I should be reviewing "Klondike: The Chicago Record's Book for Gold Seekers," published in 1897, because that's the Arctic adventure book I grew up with 50 years ago. I have no idea how the book came to be in our carefully unadventurous Midwestern home, but there it was, and I darn near memorized it before I moved on to "Treasure Island" and the South Seas. To this day I can tell you how to build a sluice box or cradle, I can tell you how to extract mercury from a gold amalgam (hold it in a shovel over a fire--and I wonder how many miners died of mercury poisoning from that bit of misinformation)
