I don't like ants, and I don't like ugly people. " Another time, the young woman who says she is eager to settle down offers a guiding principle of her active night life: "Looking good, and not repeating outfits, is imperative.

A 27-year-old Tustin man was electrocuted while taking photos of a sunset from a tree in his backyard, authorities said. It took firefighters about an hour using special equipment to remove the unidentified victim's body from the tree in the 15600 block of South California Street, said Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority. Family members, who had spent hours looking for the victim, called the Fire Department about 8:40 a.m. after they made the gruesome discovery, he said.

Some sunsets just burn into the memory. Patricio Bejarano, a court interpreter who lives in Newport Beach, was lucky to preserve this one as a photograph as well. Last September, during a 10-day vacation in Bali, Indonesia, he and his girlfriend were in a tiny beachfront restaurant waiting for glasses of wine. Bejarano zoomed in with his Canon PowerShot A70 to capture these fishing boats. "What was funny was that the glasses of wine never arrived," he said.

The $287,500 Sunset Handicap had become the forgotten stake on the Fourth of July weekend at Hollywood Park. Despite the Sunset's reputation as a major race, more attention was being paid this year to today's Silver Screen Handicap, with Preakness winner Snow Chief running, and to speculation about whether Melair, the undefeated filly, would run against Snow Chief or start instead in Sunday's Hollywood Oaks.

"There's as much good physics in a thunderstorm as in a synchrotron," writes James Trefil.

"After the Sunset" is an unalloyed delight, bright and breezy escapist fare that's pure entertainment, filled with romance, adventure, humor, action, suspense, beautiful scenery and beautiful people. Best of all, it's got more emotion than gadgetry and special effects -- although those are spiffy indeed. It just goes to show there's nothing like a clever script, along with perfect casting and, above all, direction that's feather-light.
