Most news out of the entertainment business these days has to do with media mergers. Disney marries ABC, Time Warner may adopt CNN, Westinghouse moves in with CBS. Many worry this declining gene pool of entertainment corporations bodes ill for the future of the industry. But as the number of corporate players in the entertainment world shrinks in a search for synergy, some well-placed observers say there is a far more important change taking place in the media business.

To know Scott Ross, El Toro High School middle linebacker, is to simply take a look at his 1961 Volkswagen. The red Bug sits in Ross' garage, battered, beaten and broken from too many wild times on the town. His mother gave him two new fenders and a front hood for his 18th birthday last week, but the prospect of Ross driving the car these days isn't good. Ross estimates that he's been in six accidents. He says that some of them weren't his fault, but those who know him, well . . .

Scott Ross, former standout linebacker at El Toro High School and USC, was re-signed by the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, the NFL team announced. The undefeated NFC Western Division leaders were seeking help at linebacker after tests revealed that Vaughn Johnson has a sprained left knee. Ross was the Saints' 11th-round choice in April's draft. He was cut Aug. 26 but was re-signed two days later. He played on special teams in the season opener Sept. 1 but was released Sept. 11.

Hoping to exploit the enormous creative opportunities inherent in new digital technologies, IBM Corp. and three well-known Hollywood talents announced Thursday that they have joined forces to launch a special effects production company. The new Los Angeles-based firm, Digital Domain, will use cutting-edge computer and video technologies to create the type of exotic visual effects popularized by "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and other recent big-budget action movies.

The hits aren't coming as frequently for USC linebacker Scott Ross this season. But that's not all bad. Not if you're an opposing ballcarrier. Or an opposing driver. Ross was a terror on the field last season, leading the Trojans in tackles. He has been an even bigger terror on the roads, making defense important to drivers all over the Southland. Not that this is a laughing matter. Far from it. Ross has a problem, as he would be the first to tell you.

He has been a starter at USC since the middle of his freshman season, making almost 400 tackles for the Trojans. Three times, he has been named to the All-Pacific 10 Conference first team. A starter in three Rose Bowl games, he never played for a team that lost to UCLA. Last week, he was named to the Kodak All-American team. "I've accomplished more than I expected to accomplish," linebacker Scott Ross said. Yet in his time, the Trojans are 0-3 against Notre Dame.

I find it appalling that this young beauty contestant was denied accessible communication and had to deal with such prejudicial pageant officials. Lochrie wanted to understand and to be understood. Not only were the judges unable to speak clearly enough to be lip-read, but they were not attuned enough to all members of the community to enable them to understand her speech.
