Coolidge Discards Cigar; Riot Starts in Los Angeles
Los Angeles. February 19, 1930. (AP) Former President Calvin Coolidge threw away a half-smoked cigar here and a crowd of souvenir coveters immediately started a fight for the butt. Some hands were stepped on and some kicks administered. A woman who refused to give her name won the stub. She put it in her handbag and hurried away.

Your article on Tom Selleck was particularly insightful. I'm writing to put Tom's mind at ease on an issue so close to his heart.
My son, Max, and Tom's daughter, Hannah, attend the same school on the outskirts of Los Angeles. I have, on numerous occasions, seen Tom and Jillie standing dutifully in attendance at early Friday morning school assemblies, spending quality time "being there" for Hannah. This at an hour when many other, much less-famous fathers are onto their 10th telephone call or third business meeting.
To you, Tom, take pride in knowing that you are a great father. Although we've never met, I have a Cuban Montecristo No. 2 waiting in my humidor for just the right early morning introduction, a symbol of your commitment to your family.
If only all daughters had such concerned daddies.
