The police "said they were attacking the system," said Stanley Washington, a Pasadena real estate developer who has been granted immunity from prosecution in the probe.

April 26, 1993 | SYLVIE DRAKE, TIMES THEATER CRITIC EMERITUS
Roger Rueff's new play at South Coast Repertory is admirably named: "So Many Words." Many, many. Engaging and mysterious words; daring words backed by bold thoughts; feeling words; sexy words; startling words. They often leave one breathless, on the brink of a discovery that . . . never quite materializes. The only disappointment--a mild one--comes at the end. At the last moment. Literally. And then again, one could argue, just as plausibly, that the last moment is the most perfect one.

One critic likened cable TV giant Comcast Corp. to a plantation, while another pointed to the BP oil spill disaster as what could happen when companies escape tough regulatory scrutiny. Then an influential congresswoman dropped a bomb by hinting that Comcast had tried to buy her support for one of the biggest media deals in history. Those were some of criticisms and charges that flew during a field hearing held Monday by the House Judiciary Committee at the California Science Center in South Los Angeles to review the proposed Comcast-NBC Universal Inc. merger.

Veteran Denis Potvin is about to erase Bobby Orr from the record books. However, the star of the New York Islanders is not claiming he is the best defenseman of all-time. Potvin, who broke Orr's record for most points by a defenseman several weeks ago, scored his 270th goal Tuesday night at Uniondale, N.Y. to help the Islanders beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 7-3. Orr had 270 goals in 657 games, a number of which he played while hobbled by knee injuries. This was Potvin's 897th NHL game.

The Indianapolis Colts' playoff chances are out of their hands. Even a 35-28 victory over the Washington Redskins on a 25-yard interception return by rookie Alan Grant in the final minute Saturday settled nothing. "Who knows?" said quarterback Jeff George, whose three touchdown passes included one that tied the game with a little more than a minute to go. "I know we're (good enough to be) a playoff team; we've proven that. We'll just have to see," George said.

There's nothing drowsy about Golden West College's handling of "George Washington Slept Here." It's a spry, quickly paced production that capitalizes on the helter-skelter momentum that Kaufman and Hart intended for this tale of a city boy brought to his knees by country living. The 1940 comedy is not considered one of Kaufman and Hart's best works; it lacks the intricacy and pungent wit of "The Man Who Came to Dinner" (1939) and "You Can't Take It With You" (1936).

A small homemade bomb rocked an abortion clinic early Thursday, severely injuring a nurse and killing a Birmingham police officer who moonlighted as the clinic's security guard. The nation's first fatal bombing of an abortion clinic left a hole in the ground outside the New Woman All Women Health Care Clinic and shook buildings for blocks around. Students at the University of Alabama were awakened by the blast about 7:30 a.m. Many said the sound was sickening--and instantly recognizable.

The Chargers have become increasingly alarmed with the physical status of wide receiver Nate Lewis. As a result, the team has placed the wide receiver position on its wish list as it explores the possibility of trading unhappy nose tackle Joe Phillips. Lewis dazzled Coach Bobby Ross with his off-season improvement, and it looked as if he had locked up the No. 2 wide receiver position opposite Anthony Miller.
