Los Angeles feels a million miles away as we drive along Santa Rosa Road between Buellton and Lompoc. The sun-dappled grapevines, rolling green hills and pastoral pumpkin patches are a picture-perfect backdrop to the nearly 80 wineries and small farms that populate Santa Barbara County. They're also the setting for director Alexander Payne's movie Sideways, a comedic, bawdy adventure that gives a starring role to local wines. Based on a book of the same name, Sideways has inspired a wave of tourism here.

Did you hear the one about the middle-aged writer guy who walks into his newsroom after the Oscar nominations are announced? He's assigned to write about one of the leading actors in question. He's you, his editor says. Of course he is, writer guy says, knowing his barely perceptible Johnny Depp-ish-ness has always made an impression in the newsroom among, you know, the ladies. "Paul Giamatti," his editor corrects. Paul Giamatti? You mean, Pig Vomit? Giamatti, as most people know by now, plays the shlubby-looking, thin-skinned, temperamental, self-pitying guy who bounces off the walls of life in Sideways -- forever searching for identity, love, and a really good Pinot Noir.

"I tried to snap it sideways, but it wouldn't fit through my legs." Pete Kendall New York Jets center, with one of many examples of his self-deprecating jokes "The neighborhood gets a bad rap. It's kind of like Mayberry. OK, so maybe it's Mayberry with a rough edge." Bob O'Malley Resident of the neighborhood that is home to the Chicago White Sox "We were just trying to get two points, just trying to win a game. There was no sense getting carried away with anything."

Lou Gehrig's Yankee Stadium monument says his "amazing record of 2,130 consecutive games should stand for all time." The words were written 19 years before Cal Ripken was born. Sometimes, forever isn't a long time. How likely are some other "unbreakable" records to break?Players, CommentsCy Young -- DOWN -- 511 wins, career. A pitcher would have to average 25.5 wins over 20 seasons. Even Sidd Finch couldn't do that.Joe DiMaggio -- DOWN -- 56-game hit streak. SABR's Bill James re-created Boggs' .368 1985 season 1,000 times but never matched the feat.

LOS ANGELES -- A JetBlue airliner with 145 passengers and crew members aboard made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday after a malfunction turned the front landing gear sideways and forced the pilot to abort a transcontinental flight. After flying over the ocean to burn off fuel, the plane made its final approach, the pilot balancing the craft on its rear landing wheels, keeping the damaged front gear off the runway as long as possible. The front gear was the last to touch down.

THE SPEAKER was ripping mutual funds, as part of a spiel that he hoped would sell a stock-trading investment-education program. The best you can expect from funds, he said, is that they will go sideways. Most people in the room at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, Mass., agreed. And then the instructor - who was espousing the values of trading stocks - made his only remark about funds all night that made any sense: "Why would anybody stick with funds when they aren't getting anything good from them?"

A 53-year-old Westminster man was killed after his pickup truck ran off southbound Route 27 south of Westminster and overturned several times, state police at the Westminster barracks said. John Melvin Leishear of the 200 block of Hook Road was pronounced dead at the accident scene, near Old Westminster Road, the police said. Police said they learned of the accident from a motorist who called at 11:40 p.m. Wednesday to report having seen a damaged vehicle. The Chevrolet Silverado apparently ran off the southbound shoulder of Route 27, veered back into the lane, then slid sideways down the bank and into a field, where it overturned several times, the police said.
