PORTLAND, Ore. — For decades, leaving the Clippers was something that could be done with a smile. Neil Olshey made parting ways with the longtime laughingstock a joyless endeavor. Particularly for himself. Olshey fashioned the Clippers into a sail-worthy franchise after eons spent adrift. He orchestrated the most significant trade in team history by acquiring Chris Paul. He also helped assemble a core poised for sustained success, an elusive concept for a franchise that has made the playoffs eight times in its 42-year history.

Chasing around Washington quarterback Jake Locker was on the minds of UCLA players this week. Locker, who is expected to start after being out two weeks with a broken rib, will play his last game in Husky Stadium on Thursday night. "He can hurt you in many ways," UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers said. "He adds another dimension to their offense because of his speed. " Locker has run for more than 100 yards once this season. He has had two solid games against UCLA in his career.

Alan Plater's "Sweet Sorrow," a fond salute to the late British poet Philip Larkin at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, unfolds with the stately pace of an oceanliner being winched through the Panama Canal. It moves inevitably toward the sea and you are either fascinated by its slow passage or you find yourself measuring the inexorable march, inch by inch. In this case, about midway through the first act, my fascination was overwhelmed by a distinct lack of dramatic tension.

Re "Letting Go: Such Sweet Sorrow" [July 28]: I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I enjoyed Barbara King's column about Horton Foote's "auction-angst." I had the opportunity to meet him many, many years ago when I was just starting out as a writer, and he has always been a massive influence through the beauty of his work. His best stories were -- are -- always about letting go and moving on. Who else could possibly have transformed Harper Lee's flawless book ["To Kill a Mockingbird"]

It's drive time, three days before game time, 6:26 p.m. on Thursday. Interstate 280 northbound toward Cupertino is jammed with motorists, the radio airways with callers, none of whom give a Dick Button flying camel about figure skating. You wonder if the Silicon Valley wonks would know Tonya Harding from Warren G. Terry on a car phone clearly wishes to apply a cellular headlock on San Francisco Chronicle columnist Lowell Cohn, a guest on Ralph Barbieri's sports talk radio show on KNBR.

A desk, a vase, a painting, a house -- these things are, well, just things. But in his latest film, "Summer Hours," French writer-director Olivier Assayas explores the meaning we derive from the material objects in our lives and the emotional currency we invest in these items.
