January 13, 2002 | CLAUDIA KOLKER and Houston-based Claudia Kolker is a former Los Angeles Times bureau chief.
Two years ago, when Hatco--the Texas firm that creates Stetsons--advertised for help, they did so only with the vaguest plan of mustering new blood. Designer Gary Rosenthal, now entering his 70s, was hardly ready to retire. Although he'd launched each Stetson made for almost 30 years, working with an icon tends to energize a man. And Stetson--crown of ranchers, movie cowboys and weekend good old boys--has gleamed with legendary luster since the Civil War.

Against a background of haunting choral music and the sound of machine-gun fire, a deep voice boomed from the radio: "The full weight of justice must fall on the kidnapers. Those who profit from anguish must receive their punishment." The demand was from a radio commercial by El Salvador's business sector. Its message: Businessmen want convictions in a kidnap-for-ransom ring that has targeted several wealthy Salvadoran families.
