America's Major League Soccer is in the minor leagues worldwide, but David Beckham has now signed to play for the Galaxy, headquartered in Carson.  The price tag is $250 million, and Major League Soccer officials claim Beckham will finally make their sport a national pastime.  Beckham became a world celebrity playing football, as they call it--in Britain, where he made history with Manchester United, then spent a lot of time on the bench for the Spanish team Real Madrid.  Does he still have the talent? Will he be just another Hollywood celebrity?

Edgar Hoover had a keen eye for Hollywood possibilities too, but not until yesterday did the FBI host its first formal workshop for screenwriters—at the Federal Building in Hollywood.
