" It is an easy prophecy to remember; it's the ones that don't work out that you forget.

Sixty students in their early teens sitting in the Carson school library focus on their classmate standing at the front of the room, shushing anyone who dares to make a sound. "I just want you to hold me," Jabari Uko, 13, wails and then collapses against a woman's shoulder, sobbing.

Talk about a show biz twist. . . . A crew member who once worked with best-actress nominee Sally Kirkland relates: Back in the fall of 1981, Kirkland was set to be the leading lady in "Gypsy Angels."

But Kirkland never went before the cameras.
