After the scoreboard bulbs showing a playoff-eliminating loss were turned off at Honda Center on Sunday, more came to light Tuesday as Ducks players were processed through exit interviews. For one, the team was more banged up than advertised down the stretch. For another, veteran star Teemu Selanne might indeed be swayed to return for a 21st season because of the "unfinished business" after the first-round Stanley Cup playoffs loss to the Detroit Red Wings. Also, General Manager Bob Murray is bent on toughening his team after regular-season and playoff bullying incidents went unchecked, and admitted Tuesday that the Ducks were hamstrung late in the season by injuries.

THE IDEA OF LABOR DAY -- first in the states and later as a federal holiday -- dates to the 1880s, when the notion of "the workingman" took root in American life. But the seeds of organized labor's strength -- and perhaps of its revival -- can be found in 1933, in the thrilling "First Hundred Days" of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. That was when unions first won, almost by accident, the right to collective bargaining. Roosevelt didn't start out as a labor man.

Dear Cynthia: I've been having recurring dreams for several years now. In these dreams, I am always trapped in a haunted house. The ghosts there are either trying to scare me out of my mind by making noises, saying horrible things to me, physically holding me or throwing stuff at me, or they are trying to get me with a knife or ax. Either way, no matter how much I try to reason with them or fight back, I cannot stop their terror nor can I get out of the house.

The last two teams to face San Francisco were speed bumps. Sunday, the 49ers face last season's Super Bowl roadblock: the New York Giants, who advanced to the game's biggest stage with an overtime victory in the NFC championship game at Candlestick Park. But these are different 49ers, a 4-1 team that outscored the last two opponents - the Jets and Bills - by a combined 79-3, and are fresh off a club-record 621-yard offensive outburst against Buffalo. Now, the 49ers have a chance to dispatch the Giants, the team that denied them a trip to Super Bowl XLVI.

Corona del Mar author Stephen Robinett describes the hero of his paperback Jeeter mystery novels as a business magazine writer who has the bad habit of getting himself involved in the stories he's writing about. In his second outing, "Unfinished Business" (Avon; $3.95), Jerry Jeeter is still dealing with the emotional fallout from his involvement in the death of one of the major characters in the first Jeeter mystery, "Final Option."

I came face to face with the scooter today. I couldn't avoid it. I had to get out the Christmas decorations that were boxed in the deep recesses of our garage. And when I dug my way back to them, there it was, forlorn and despairing. One wheel on and one wheel off. His mother and I had given it to my stepson for Christmas four years ago. Or was it five? He rode it a few times and then blew a tire.

There have been other films dealing with the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, but none so powerful and comprehensive as Steven Okazaki's "Unfinished Business," which screens today only at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Japan America Theatre, 244 S. San Pedro St. The premiere of this one-hour documentary marks the 43rd anniversary of the signing of Executive Order No.

As might anyone, composers have sometimes left unfinished business behind at their deaths. Beginning probably with the early fascination with Mozart's deathbed Requiem, an almost cultic subgenre has grown up around these tantalizing fragments. Under guest conductor Heinrich Schiff, the Los Angeles Philharmonic bookended its latest program at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with two of the best known orchestral relics.

"I am an unfinisher," Los Angeles artist Kim Dingle remarked Monday, apropos of one of her paintings that shows a sketchy-looking figure of Minnie Mouse confronting a skinny, tense-looking little girl in a skimpy petticoat. "I never made my bed since I moved out of my mother's house, and I never finish a painting. I learned to embrace The Unfinished."

Track and field will deal with unfinished business this weekend--among it the expected reinstatement of South Africa--when the sport's international governing body meets in Toronto for its last major business meeting before the Barcelona Olympics. The International Amateur Athletic Federation is expected to readmit South Africa, which was a founding member of the organization but was expelled in 1976 for its policy of apartheid, or racial segregation.
