  • On Suicide: Readers Respond

    Of Suicide, and Men Can't say we didn't see this one coming. Henry Rollins' Aug. 22 column — which questioned, in light of Robin Williams' death, how any parent could succumb to suicide ("Fuck Suicide") — went viral, and quickly had our mailbag filled to bursting. Very little of the...
  • L.A. County Jail Plan Is a $2 Billion Blunder

    It was the happiest day of Phillip Cho's life. Shortly after New Year's Day in 2005, he learned that he had acquired a fortune of $600 million — a windfall from his brother, who had won a settlement in a corporate espionage lawsuit, and who planned to give Cho access...
  • L.A.'s Elizabethan Flash-Mob Company

    Waiting in line at the Union Station Starbucks downtown, Hamlet discusses the ghost of his father with Horatio: "If this spirit come again tonight, I'll speak to it though hell itself should gape and bid me hold my peace. Hi, I'll have a venti caramel macchiato and a spinach breakfast...

    Actor-playwright Keith Stevenson is one lucky fellow, having a top-flight ensemble to write comedies for; and having a director, Guillermo Cienfuegos, with such a sympathetic comprehension of the strands threaded through his humor; and, to top it all, being able to act in a pivotal role in his own plays...
  • Underground Museum's New Exhibit Crosses Centuries

    Compton-bred, hip-hop bard Kendrick Lamar is singing in his catchy, laid-back way: "All my life I want money and power / Respect my mind or die from lead shower." A lithe guy who's high on life, or maybe high on something else, is strutting along the L.A. River. He is...
  • Startup Dudes in the News: Readers Write

    Angel of Fortune Gene Maddaus' profile of Silicon Beach investor Paige Craig had readers talking last week ("L.A. Angel," Aug. 15). Many were not impressed by Craig. Writes JoeLeisure, "Gordon Gekko 2.0. Man, that show Silicon Valley is so spot-on. It lampoons these greedy fucks (sorry, 'angels') perfectly. 'I'll only...
