USC students enrolled in this semester's Case Studies in Modern Leadership class have been pondering what makes a good leader. They've been assigned readings on influential people — including Gen. Douglas MacArthur and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — and have been schooled on what their instructor has identified as the six stages of leadership. But lest the curriculum become too theoretical, this week they were paid a visit by a flesh-and-blood public official. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa strolled in a few minutes after class began, accompanied by a swirl of aides.

Forty crew members were set up inside of Banco Popular building in downtown Los Angeles. Some angled the lights and cameras toward a staircase, preparing to film a character running out of the building after an altercation. High walls of marble cast shadows inside the building as the crew began shooting a pilot episode of "D-Tec," a TV crime drama set in the future. Producer Richard King hopes the series will get sold to a network or an online distributor.

A South-Central Los Angeles man charged with attacking three USC students was sentenced Friday to two life terms, plus an additional 18 years and eight months in prison for assaulting three other women at a North Hollywood complex in 1988. Deon Proby, 20, was convicted in June in San Fernando Superior Court on seven felony counts--including robbery, kidnaping for robbery, and forced oral copulation--in connection with the attacks on the three North Hollywood women.

The Halloween party was going strong at the heart of the USC campus. Inside the student center, about 400 people danced to a DJ under rave lighting while more than 100 milled around outside trying to get into the event, which boasted tight security. "Strict off-duty officers plus campus [police] = no worries," one online ad for the party said. But about 11:45 p.m., gunshots were fired in the crowd outside, not far from the university's Tommy Trojan statue. Students screamed and ran for safety.

Two former USC students and a former employee in the university's records office are facing felony charges for their part in a grade-tampering scandal that implicated more than 40 students, the district attorney's office announced today. Two of the men have surrendered to authorities and the third is a fugitive, a spokesman said. News of the prosecutions was delayed because of the continuing search.

About 75 USC students are being treated in a campus outbreak of a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus. In an e-mail and text message sent early Saturday, school officials asked sick students to watch that evening's football game against the Oregon Ducks from home in order to contain the outbreak. They also advised students to avoid socializing and to drink plenty of fluids. The university's health clinic reported patients complaining of vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea.

I'd like to give credit to John Barnes and the rest of the UCLA Bruins, and my condolences to the Trojan players. Once again Larry Smith and his staff were out-coached, and the natural talents of the defense and Curtis Conway and Co. were unable to bail them out this time. So the USC students, faculty, alumni and fans had to endure another improbable loss in Smith's inconsistent tenure as head coach. We deserve better, President Sample: We've had enough mediocrity.
