SAN FRANCISCO - In fewer than 140 characters, or 24 words, Twitter Inc. disclosed that it was planning the highest-profile public stock offering since Facebook Inc. But that was about all it did, leaving stunned investors and analysts scrambling for nearly two weeks to find out more. Sometime this week or next, they may finally get the details as the micro-blogging service is widely expected to make public its secret filing. Twitter's "stealth IPO" has thrown the spotlight on a controversial law passed almost two years ago that rewrote the rule book for start-ups seeking to go public.

John Wise, 26, swears he got his job at MGM without even going in for an interview. No, Wise doesn't have a relative in the business. Rather, he registered with Spotlight on Jobs, a quasi-government agency placing the long-term unemployed or under-skilled in film industry jobs. Since its founding just after the 1992 riots, Spotlight has placed 220 applicants, said executive director Richard Katz.

In his State of the State address last January, Gov. Pete Wilson attacked welfare recipients for an unwillingness to work. "Taxpayers [will] no longer subsidize idleness and promiscuity," he declared in praising the arrival of welfare reform. "We're ending welfare's warehousing of people who don't want to work." Now Wilson is telling private businesses that these same people--nearly 1 million adults in California--will make good employees.
