The bubbling beehive of black women waiting for author Susan L. Taylor was buzzing with anticipation. Her columns about life--how to survive it, embrace it, and rejoice in it--had pulled many through hard times. Sometimes, her words just made a rough day at work seem bearable.

When it comes to Illinois politics, nothing is simple. As voters hit the polls Tuesday in the state's primary, for instance, they have to choose not only which candidate they support for their party's presidential nominee, but also have to vote for the delegates that will support that candidate at the GOP convention.   “Our way of voting here is pretty different,” said Chuck Williams, 78, who was heading to the polls in East Peoria on a warm morning that felt like summer. Another way it's different: Williams said when he returned home after being out yesterday, he had 14 messages on his answering machine.

Twenty years ago, Susan Taylor had a very big year. She gave birth to a daughter, ended her marriage and--despite her lack of a college education--snared a part-time job as beauty editor at a new magazine for black women called Essence. Then on a raw, rainy Sunday, she woke up with a pain in her chest. It was a pushy, pay-me-some-attention-now pain, one that demanded she leave her baby with her estranged husband and dash to a nearby emergency room.

I remember several years ago reading Joyce Carol Oates' story collection "Heat" and thinking: What terribly dark little tales these are! I wondered what it meant that so many of them featured rather evil children, spoiled and scary kids who seemed capable of almost anything. It was the beginning of a realization of how little monsters stories--the idea in fiction and film of the bad child--had begun to surface regularly in some of the most powerful contemporary tales.

A mortar shell that was found on the Century Freeway in Hawthorne and tied up traffic for hours was detonated Tuesday afternoon by members of the sheriff's bomb squad, authorities said. The shell was found by a Caltrans worker on the shoulder of the freeway's westbound lanes, near Wilton Place. The California Highway Patrol closed all westbound lanes and half an hour later closed the eastbound lanes, said Susan Taylor, a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman.

KUSC-FM, which only a month ago added two hours of news to its morning lineup, this week scaled the morning news back to one hour. Public relations director Susan Taylor said the change was "in part a result of our fairly certain knowledge of impending changes at KFAC," and in response to listeners who wanted classical music in the morning. The schedule now calls for news from 5 to 6 a.m. surrounded by music the rest of the morning.

It was with great pleasure that I read your article on my college classmate and (briefly) roommate, Shane Black. As a graduate of UCLA's Department of Theater, I've grown accustomed to seeing people I went to school with get work in the industry. It is a relief to finally read about an old friend who hasn't let his success go to his head or one who hasn't let his craft be compromised. Shane, your lunacy may be marketable, but it is your own. And by the way, you were never a geek.

For years, the motto of the Essence Music Festival has been "party with a purpose." This year may be the one year where the purpose overshadows the party. Forced to relocate from its longtime home in New Orleans to Houston due to Hurricane Katrina, this year's event, which kicks off today and ends Monday, promises the usual array of top celebrity performers, including Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Toni Braxton and a New Edition reunion with Bobby Brown.

Eight children were exposed to whooping cough at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance when a 7-week-old baby was admitted with a bronchial infection that later turned out to be the more serious illness, hospital officials said. All the children, ranging in age from a few weeks to 4 years, were in the same room or adjoining rooms. None of the eight have become ill as a result of the exposure last week, spokeswoman Patricia Cagnetto said.
