A federal judge refused to acquit four former Qwest Communications International Inc. executives accused of artificially boosting company revenue by $34 million, saying there was enough evidence to support guilty verdicts. Thomas Hall, Grant Graham, John Walker and Bryan Treadway are accused of conspiring to help the Denver-based telecommunications company improperly book the money in June 2001 to meet financial targets, perhaps hoping to boost their own bonuses.

Ciotti's article is full of women who want men but who don't sound as though they will compromise a thing to get a man. There are plenty of us out here--single, lonely, willing to commit to a loving relationship. We want families and companionship. But if we compromise our schedules, careers and fantasies, we want to believe that we are important enough that our wives will stick with us after the children have left home. We want to believe we are more than just a source for seeds or social image or financial security.

Where can you go these days to see gifted black San Diego actors perform? Los Angeles. New York. Minneapolis. Increasingly, the answer is anywhere but San Diego. That is distressing for both aspiring black actors who need a stage to practice on and for the black director in town, Floyd Gaffney, who has been trying to put together a professional black theater company in San Diego for 18 years.
