    Paul Thomas Anderson was making serious movies long before he started making "serious" movies, ponderous works of certified art such as There Will Be Blood and The Master. His earliest pictures, like Hard Eight and Boogie Nights, and even the later Magnolia, were wily, imperfect, vibrating with life like yeast...
  • Fighting DWP and Best Chinese Spots: Readers Respond

    Class Act(ion) vs. DWP Jessica P. Ogilvie's story of households who battled DWP bills opened the floodgates to thoughtful residents in a fighting mood. HwoodCa warns, "Let's remember we elected the mayor to help the DWP rip off as many people as possible while pretending not to be in DWP's...
