  • Clippers, Lakers Start Fast In New Season

    Mitch Chortkoff|Nov 17, 2016

    It’s good to be a fan of an LA team so far in the 2016-’17 National Basketball Association season. The Clippers are 10-1 at this writing, the best record in the NBA. And they’ve been routing opponents, building several 30-point halftime leads. The Lakers can’t match that but as of Monday they had a 6-5 record and that’s encouraging considering their slow starts in recent years. They even had a three-game winning streak before losing at Minnesota Sunday. I credit new coach Luke Walton for doing...

    Stephen Hadland|Nov 17, 2016

  • Family Drama

    Carole Bell|Nov 17, 2016

    Anything’s possible with families today. Yet viewed with antediluvian wisdom, it's the way it was; la plus ça change. What's up with families was a recurring theme throughout the American Film Institute Film Festival. Midst the usual filmfest mix of causy, gender, and the visually poetic, it was all about the family you had, have, and the varieties you might have. In the candy store of treasures at AFI this year, The Comedian was delicious. Robert de Niro is superb as a nasty, filth-spewing comi...
