This is Fardad Fateri's 10th year as organizer of the Persian New Year festival in Irvine, said to be the largest annual gathering of Iranians outside Iran. A decade ago, traffic, noise and litter generated by the loosely organized celebration angered residents.

Kevin Bradshaw finally is getting the attention he believes he deserves.

But instead of celebrating his place in history Sunday, he said he found himself playing defense against the media.

Espionage has become big business. In his article, Christopher says, " . . . Spying has endangered our national security to such a breathtaking extent that we can all be thankful that war did not break out while some of our most sensitive secrets were compromised." Perhaps. But maybe the truth is just the opposite. Perhaps the reason that the Cold War never turned hot was because our secrets, as well as the Soviets' were compromised. (We have our spies, too.

What is U.S. International? Where is U.S. International? Why does it play basketball? Why does it play basketball the way it plays basketball? Does anybody who plays basketball there know how to do anything other than shoot a basketball? Inquiring minds want to know. Evidently, U.S. International is a school of some kind. A college. Could be a military academy, for all I know. Or a scientific institute. Maybe it's a place where Air Force pilots learn to become astronauts.
