(I also hope that every time they get a "customer" at the cemetery they ring the bell, like when they make a sale at a car dealership. --Ed.)

I was a student at UCLA from 1983 to 1987. In 1987 I was dismissed for poor academic performance, which was sadly an accurate assessment.

I am close (I do not know how close) to a degree in English, and I am interested in readmission and in completing my Bachelor's degree.

According to there is an application. I have no other transcripts since 1987, so that won't be an issue.

What should I expect from the procedure, and what other information should I gather? I'm very interested in this but also a bit intimidated.

Thanks in advance,

The headline NASCAR looking to expand into the hip-hop lifestyle should be enough, but the press release itself takes it all the way. Pullquotes of note below:
  • As for the messages and products in development specifically, Earnhardt said they will be dope because adidas "always keeps it clean."

  • During the recent race weekend in Chicago, rapper and Chi-Town native Twista rolled to the club in a Red Bull painted NASCAR street ride to promote his new album Adrenaline Rush Oh-Seven which touts a NASCAR tie-in.

  • Over the years, the sport's crossover into the urban demographic has been hit and miss, but today one could say it's "On and Poppin'."

  • Team Red Bull driver Brian Vickers, who has made appearances on MTV's TRL, tried to do his thang with Bow Wow and throw up a paint scheme to promote the rapper's music, however, nothing panned out but the two are said to be buds and Bow Wow has since been to a few NASCAR races.
It's fresh and dope that they've discovered the 1985-era Run DMC Adidas phenomenon.

I hope they work their way forward to NWA soon!

I heard a Canadian Tourism Ad on the radio in my car yesterday. The ad tried to put me in a sound picture in which I was on an amazing golf course playing the game of my life while sweet birds sang etc and an elk walked on to the course. And the tag was something like "and you don't mind an interruption in your game, because an ELK IS ON THE COURSE!" Followed by the call your travel agent spiel.

I'm not sure what your reaction might be, but were I on a golf course and an elk appeared, I would run like hell. Who wants to get kicked to death? Is there a baby elk over there? Wow these things are pretty fast OH GOD THE ANTLERS

There was another ad right afterwards in which I was instructed to picture myself paddling a kayak or canoe on Lake Louise having a peak experience. That didn't sound so bad except for the Implied Insects, which are universal in traveling anyhow.

But no elk for me, please.

  1. Pedestrian struck, killed on I-405 in Westminster
    Northbound lanes shut down more than 4 hours while crews cleaned up.
    The Orange County Register

    WESTMINSTER – A man dressed in black was killed early this morning after being run over by a car and a big-rig as he walked across the San Diego (I-405) Freeway. The man, who has not been identified, was in the fast lane of the northbound I-405 near Beach Boulevard when he was hit by a Honda Civic and then a big-rig at about 1:17 a.m., CHP dispatcher Dave Clark said.

    The freeway was shut down at 1:27 and remained largely closed down for more than four hours as biohazard crews cleaned up lanes, Clark said.

    The drivers of the Honda and the big-rig pulled to the side of the freeway and called police, Clark said. No one has been cited in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.

    The pedestrian is described as a black man wearing a black hooded sweat shirt, dark jeans, black tennis shoes and a black baseball cap.

  2. Santa Ana man arrested in Upland deaths

    UPLAND – A 75-foot power pole being moved into place smashed through a car, killing the driver and a construction worker and critically injuring a woman passenger, police said.

    The crane operator, Joseph Dimaano, 31, of Santa Ana was arrested for investigation of involuntary manslaughter after the accident because the pole was moved onto the street without warning, police said.

    The pole was being installed at a corner shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday and was dangling from a crane when it was moved out into traffic, where it went through the windshield of a car, police said.

    The driver, an 81-year-old Montclair man, was killed on impact. His identity was withheld pending notification of relatives, the San Bernardino County coroner's office said Thursday.

    The passenger, an 80-year-old Montclair woman, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. There was no word on her condition Thursday.

    After the pole's bottom end hit the car, the top end struck a worker on the ground who was guiding the pole. David Jenkins, 29, of Lake Elsinore died about an hour later at a hospital, Sgt. Greg Doyle said.

A family van catches on fire after hitting a flying hog.

Only charred remains is all that's left of the van. Lisa Hancock says she was driving back home from church Tuesday night with her husband and son, when a 500 pound hog crossed the road in front of them on Route 21 in Wythe County.

Another car, driving in the opposite direction hit the hog first, sending the animal flying on top of the hood of the mini van.

Lisa says the flames began to spark out of the hood after the impact, that when she and her family got out. The driver of the other car wasn't hurt, both cars were totaled.

The person responsible for the damage is the farmer who owns the hog, the farm is down the road from where the accident happened.
