Lounging in a grass hut on her banana plantation, peddling passion fruit to carefree surfers, Sherrie Payton couldn't feel farther from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.

Bookstores are no longer temples in which quiet selection and hushed conversations are the norm. They are social centers--often with cafes and computer banks--where readings, musicals, slide shows and lectures are daily events. A new kid on the block, offering all of the above, has joined the scene. The 33,000-square-foot Borders Books & Music will open its doors Saturday at 125 W. Thousand Oaks Blvd., Thousand Oaks.

Saying they live in a political outback, ignored by the power centers of both Los Angeles and Ventura counties, a group of 60 unlikely revolutionaries from the area between Thousand Oaks and Calabasas met this week to consider seceding from both counties and forming their own, to be called "Chumash County" or "Conejo County."

Let's talk about babies. Actually, I'd thought of taking this occasion to discuss children and environmentalism. But on the phone with a friend, Berkeley-based John Javna (author of "50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth"), we got to discussing babies--he's a brand-new father--and what we should be doing for their environmental safety, specifically cloth versus plastic diapers. It turns out to be an important topic, not just for new parents but for everybody.

Less than half a mile away from the Ronald Wilson Reagan Presidential Library, and wedged within an innocuous Simi Valley housing tract that boasts a parade of cheerful two-story townhouses, a one-man, cottage-industry revolution presses onward. At the end of a cul-de-sac, mild-mannered Jordan Jones, bespectacled editor of razor-edged Bakunin magazine, cranks out his perfect-bound, indisputably left-of-center journal in the Spartan rooms of, he likes to joke, his "ancestral manse."
