    debbie lynn elias|Jun 30, 2016

    When it comes to espionage, be it literary or cinematic, one name jumps to the forefront. John le Carre. "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", "A Most Wanted Man", "The Russia House", "The Constant Gardener" and currently airing on cable on AMC, "The Night Manager" with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, should immediately spring to mind. And now OUR KIND OF TRAITOR, a subtler yet equally fraught with tension, but a more emotional and contemporary story based on Le Carre's 2010 best-seller is added to the b...

It is fitting and well-timed that the historical stadium will serve as the Rams' home playing field before the they move into their permanent confines in Inglewood beginning with the 2019 NFL season. It was not a foregone conclusion that the Coliseum was going to be the Rams' temporary stadium of choice. The Coliseum was not notified of the decision until January 12 of this year,...

  • Lakers Draftee Ingram Is Very Talented, Very Slim, Very Young

    Mitch Chortkoff|Jun 30, 2016

    Last week the Lakers selected Duke freshman Brandon Ingram with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft. They're happy because the 6-foot-9 forward is a highly regarded prospect who is likely to have an outstanding professional basketball career. But there are hurdles to overcome. Most important, the Lakers are adding another very young player to their plans to rebuild following four terrible seasons. They've been promoting the idea that their most recent draftees, Julius Randle, DeAngelo Russell and...

  • Onward And Upward For Holly Mitchell

    Neil Rubenstein|Jun 30, 2016

    Nobody has more respect and admiration for our State Senator Holly Mitchell than Theodorsia and I. She has had numerous bills signed by Governor Brown, and she has taken the progressive position in Sacramento. We firmly agree Holly’s stance on grand juries, as in relationship to police shootings, made her the United States legislator of the year. In 2018 when Mark Ridley-Thomas is termed out of office we need Holly Mitchell to be elected to the Board of Supervisors. Sign us up. Per Time M...

  • America! How Ya' Looking, Baby?

    Carole Bell|Jun 30, 2016

    I'm talking with M., a friend in England, about the hideous violence in Orlando. "Well, you know, it's America." he said. That bothered me. I launched into various rational reactions, but inside, I felt hurt. My country right or wrong, and all that? No, I wouldn't. Yet it's undeniable: people in other countries look at us as if we're aliens. OK, in the UK, no one is allowed to own a gun. The police don't carry guns. The news is not filled with gun violence. But we're the United States. There's...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: THE SHALLOWS

    Jun 30, 2016

    It's been a long time since audiences have had a "killer" shark movie to bite into. Sure, we've all been swept up into the "Sharknado" frenzy of the past few years (with July 31, 2016 already circled in blood red on the calendar for "Sharknado 4"), but that speaks to our feral bloodlust and love of over-the-top implausible disaster scenarios, as do so many of the "Sharktopus", "Shark Attack", "Megashark" "Super Shark" and "Ghost Shark" entries in the genre. (Yes, shark movies are their own genre...

  • Bon Voyage to a Beautiful Soul Mary Tyrer

    Sandra Coopersmith|Jun 30, 2016

    It's the small things that hurt the most when loss occurs. I sob as I sit here at the computer, knowing I'll never again hear Mary ("Toni") Tyrer, my dear, vibrant, whimsical friend for 50 years, my roommate, hero, mentor, second mother and Rock of Gibraltar, firmly say, "Take a break. I've made you a cup of tea and a snack." Her health began its sharp decline in April and we started home hospice June 6, quickly followed by my hiring a caregiver agency 24/7 when her condition rapidly plummeted....
