What do you give the city that thinks it has everything? A city song, of course. San Diego, whose official motto is "America's Finest City," is now looking for America's Finest City Song. Official or unofficial, New York, Chicago and San Francisco have city songs. For singing out loud, even suburban Encinitas ("Unpretentious, genu-wine folks/Palms and pines and little live oaks") has a city song.

- Anyone just happen to have an extra copy of "The Odd Couple" or "The Iceman Cometh"? Actor and director Spike Sorrentino is trying to build a community theater "with a difference" for 20 inmates at the Richard Donovan Correctional Center at Otay Mesa--the first theater of its kind in San Diego. The first step, as he sees it, is to beef up the prison library with copies of plays that the prisoners might like to do.

My first impression of Pacific Beach is frozen in a mental snapshot on a winter morning in 1986. I was sitting on the deck of La Haina Beach House, munching toast and watching the Pacific's waves roll in from the bottom of a bright blue sky while pondering the move I had just made to San Diego from Texas. In most other places, I would have been amid a Sunday-brunch church crowd, dressed in nice clothes and coats, exchanging polite pleasantries over honey-glazed ham.

I lobbied as hard as I could for two or three days. I sold San Diego the way I used to sell used cars. --GENE KLEIN, in his autobiography, "First Down and a Billion: The Funny Business of Pro Football," with David Fisher. It just may rank as the biggest come-from-behind, go-for-broke, trick-play victory in San Diego sports history. The Chargers' 41-38 overtime win over the Miami Dolphins at the Orange Bowl in 1981, with Kellen Winslow performing repeated death-defying acts?

Moses, drag queens and beer-imbibing roofers. Turn a few thousand Republicans loose, add liquor and things can get decidedly weird. Here's a whirlwind tour of this week's GOP-OD'ed night life: * Planet Hollywood at Horton Plaza has been a kind of Party Central for the convention--taken over by Republicans of all types: young ones, old ones, gun-loving ones, you name it. Monday night, it was the site of a bash for the Young Republican National Federation, hosted by NASDAQ.

Forget the puffed-up speeches about the nation's future and the raging fights over some obscure and not-so-obscure points in the party platform. Led by the Californians, 8,000 Republicans did what most self-respecting natives do on a sunny Sunday afternoon here--they headed to the beach. It was all part of a California Republican Party fund-raiser and a perfect California welcome for the out-of-towners.

We ran into California's surprise Republican convention winner Sunday morning in the hallway of the state delegation's hotel. Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren unexpectedly became the highest-ranking Californian to speak at the convention after Gov. Pete Wilson was run off the program by the party's dominant antiabortion wing. Lungren was upbeat. Chatting in the hallway at the Sheraton Harbor Island, we asked him about his good fortune. Luck of the draw, he said.

With the Republican National Convention beginning here on Monday, downtown is aflutter--with red, white and blue welcome banners, huge inflatable elephants bobbing from hotel balconies and a palpable sense of anticipation, for the commercial as much as the political event. Restaurants in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, soon to be besieged with delegates and media, are advertising convention specials like "Elephant Stew."

As expected, Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour announced Friday that his party will hold its 1996 national convention in San Diego. "We think it will be the perfect place to showcase the energy and ideas of our party and to showcase our nominees for President and vice president of the United States," Barbour said. The GOP named San Diego as its choice for the convention in December pending the end of negotiations over how much money the city will contribute to the event.
