Reaction to Manny Ramirez's trade to the Dodgers was immediate on latimes.com ------ Just a stellar move by the Dodgers. I'm stunned! Sure, Manny will be a butcher in the field (though no worse than Pierre) but his Manny-ness might shake up the often listless Dodger chemistry, so that's a good thing. And he's going to put up some numbers. I can't wait to go to the game Sunday! Tonyp ------ Manny will be the ring master of the "Manny being Manny" circus. Get ready for a whole lot of thrills, spills, and angst.

They've tried reining in the paparazzi before -- with little success. There was the time Los Angeles County prosecutors vowed to use criminal conspiracy charges against photographers who drove recklessly while chasing celebrities around. And remember when the California Legislature passed a law making it easier for celebrities to sue aggressive paparazzi? But now, authorities are bringing in the big guns: L.A.'s much-feared parking enforcement division.

Having foolishly decided to delve into Martin Bernheimer's critique (sic) of "Paul McCartney's Liverpool Oratorio," I found myself deep in a morass of platitudes, fatuities and logorrheic diarrhea ("The 'Cute' Beatle's Cute Oratorio," Oct. 26). The senselessly repetitious contradictory phraseology was the height--or depth--of idiocy. The plethora of adjectival expressions left more than understandability to be desired. His writing (sic) brought to mind an analogical phrase: You are mentally incapable of recognizing the line between legitimate persiflage and objectionable familiarity; Bernheimer should confine his repartee to affirmation or negative monosyllable.

In reference to the story on the Manhattan Beach police officer Steve Fletcher, putting a (small c , thank you) christian symbol on the traffic tickets he issues, I submit the following. First, Ms. Kathleen Parsons should be commended for having the integrity to stick up for what she believes and also for having the courage to do so. I hope she does not (as I have) receive hate letters and phone calls some of the "love your neighbor, turn the other cheek" christians (sic) will most probably heap on her. (In my experience, most do not identify themselves.

Every once in a while, hard science has a cosmetic payoff. We use botulinum toxins to erase wrinkles, and lasers to remove unwanted hair. Now a company called Jane Beauty is promising to apply scientific principles for another purely cosmetic purpose: longer, thicker eyelashes.

Just how posh is Newport Beach? In Newport, they use limos for taxicabs. Well, at least Bill Lowry does. Lowry, a driver for California Yellow Cab (800-YELLOW CAB), bought an old stretch, wide-body Lincoln limousine for a pittance and had it painted yellow. Just like any other cab, it has logos on the doors, a light on the top and a meter on the dash. And just like any other cab, its fare is government regulated. It costs no more to take Lowry's "cabousine" to the airport than another cab.

This scam went nationwide by e-mail; maybe it came to your computer: You're told the merchandise you ordered is en route and payment (several hundred dollars) will be automatically charged to your credit card. But if you don't want the merchandise, just call this phone number to cancel. The scammers had no way of hitting on your credit card: Once you learned you've been charged a fee for the callback, you know you've been had. There's a new dirty word for such a scam. It's called Spam.

December 11, 2006 | Marc Cooper, MARC COOPER is a visiting professor of journalism at USC's Annenberg School for Communication. In the early 1970s he worked as translator to Chilean President Salvador Allende, who was overthrown and died in the 1973 coup that brought Pinochet to power.
NOT WITH LITTLE irony did the gods choose to reclaim former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet on Sunday, which was International Human Rights Day. The heart attack he suffered a week ago had initially seemed quite convenient. By landing him in a military hospital, it short-circuited an imminent court hearing into two killings he was accused of ordering more than 30 years ago. Indeed, his house arrest, decreed just last month, was lifted so he could be hospitalized.

BEWARE OF FACULTY WITH TENURE. Many a principal hired to turn around a lackluster public school has learned that lesson the hard way -- sometimes by losing his job. Now Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers, who announced his resignation this week, has experienced it for himself.

Lynwood. Maywood. South Gate. Carson. Compton. The names change but the stories are distressingly similar: Public officials bury both hands in the city till while taxpaying constituents struggle to put food on rickety kitchen tables and gas in last-leg cars.

The popular Chihuahua featured in Taco Bell Corp.'s commercials is turning into an attack dog in a print and television advertising campaign pitching the chain's Gorditas tacos as tastier fare than Burger King's Whopper sandwich. Taco Bell spokeswoman Laurie Gannon said market research conducted in recent years "shows that the Whopper is the gold standard for hamburgers among our customers. Now we're saying that Gorditas' taste beats that standard."
