The death of John Z. DeLorean on Saturday put me in mind of a 15th century English epitaph: "His life was a well-acted story of himself." Talk about drama: The love-starved son of an alcoholic foundry worker, DeLorean rose on his native intellect and fierce energy to lead first General Motors' Pontiac division -- credited with cars such as the GTO and Grand Prix -- beginning in 1965, then the Chevrolet division (starting in 1969). In 1972, he attained the vice-presidency of GM in record time.

This, of course, guarantees that the name will crop up in dozens of news stories each month--most of them dealing with women who have run afoul of the law. This week, a ceremony at Beverly Hills City Hall will serve as a reminder that the name belongs to a distinguished social worker.

EATING IN HAWAII is like having airline food three times a day," Alice Waters of Chez Panisse told a Hawaii-bound friend not long ago. "Take some olive oil and vinegar with you. That way at least you'll be able to pick some wild watercress and have a decent salad." She was hardly exaggerating.
