Among them were dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, actor Ralph Bellamy, boxer Floyd Patterson, producer A. C.

Couched as it was with reminders of the earthquake, the wildfires and the sagging economy, our question to readers was simple: Why do you stay in the San Fernando Valley? In dozens of poems, essays and even a limerick, written on manual typewriters, computers or scrawled on note cards, you responded, defiantly defending your neighborhood, your strip mall, your Valley.

NBC and CNN have both pulled the plug on projects about potential presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. In July, NBC announced with fanfare that it was developing a four-hour minseries about Clinton and had tapped Diane Lane to portray the former first lady and former secretary of State.

They worried the minseries would be little more than a campaign commercial for an expected run by Clinton for the White House in 2016.

Deanna Durbin, the singing starlet with the bubbly personality and the jewel-tone voice whose enormously popular movies were widely credited with saving Universal Pictures from bankruptcy during the Depression, has died. She was 91. Her popularity peaked by her late teens and by her mid-20s Durbin had left Hollywood forever, made wealthy by her relatively brief career. She died in April in France, said family friend Bob Koster, the son of Henry Koster, who directed Durbin in films early in her career.
