In the 17th and 18th centuries, travelers paraded and traipsed through Italy, a grand tour destination meant to bring them into contact with antiquity. The contact could be spiritual or intellectual, but it also could be physical. Collectors gripped tightly onto ancient Greek and Roman artifacts and brought them home. The exhibition "Italy on the Grand Tour," at the Getty Center, highlights what these grand tourists--especially the grandest ones, the British--saw and how they saw it.

The only way I could survive was to be funny," the tall and still bespectacled Hamilton said recently, sitting on a bench outside the Old Globe Theatre. His sense of humor was honed at Yale, where he worked for the Yale Record, the university's humor magazine at the time.

A six-hour recount of 1,400 ballots last week at Maywood City Hall did not change the results of the April 14 election, in which Dorothy Ramirez and incumbents Henry Santiago Jr. and William Hamilton were elected. The losers in the election demanded a hand count of the ballots, charging that an electronic ballot counting machine malfunctioned on the night of the election, perhaps affecting the outcome of the close race. Just 12 votes separated the third- and fourth-place vote-getters.
