With Valentine's Day falling on a Saturday, it means a weekend full of opportunities for the material expression of romantic sentiment. At least for some people. This isn't one of those holidays that means all that much to me, since I have a husband who likes to express his ardor at holiday time in practical ways, rather than with candy hearts or large bouquets. Given that Valentine's Day falls during a winter month, he is more likely to get my tires rotated, to guarantee my safety on the road.

First, Charles Edward Lovinggood lost his love. Then, on Valentine's Day, he lost his life. On Monday, just 20 minutes into the most sentimental of days, Lovinggood, 45, of Reseda, telephoned his estranged wife, Marilyn Eileen Lovinggood, also 45, and--on learning another man was living at her West Hills home--threatened to pay them a visit, Los Angeles police said. When Charles Lovinggood carried out that threat, he got into a fight with the other man, who punched him twice in the head.

RING AND A PRAYER: Not even the advent of Valentine's Day could rescue John Crandall Jewelers from the throes of the recession. The Buena Park-based chain filed for bankruptcy protection last week but will remain open. . . . Company President Edward A. Young says that even in bad times, starry-eyed beaus keep buying diamonds: "Engagement rings are a fairly stable business." . . . And the rings are often bought on impulse. "They come rushing in the day before Valentine's, or even on Feb. 14."
