Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan on Saturday acknowledged a potential conflict of interest in his approval of a valuable city contract for a firm that is a tenant in a building partly owned by the mayor. Riordan said he made an "honest mistake" in twice signing or forwarding contract amendments for A.C. Martin and Associates, which increased the firm's payments for the earthquake retrofitting of City Hall by more than $5 million.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center does not look like a hospital. It does not have uplifting, do-gooder Gothic arches or optimistic modernist lines or any of the sanitary red brick with white trim we often associate with the places where you are confronted with your own mortality.

Law" that ran for eight seasons in the late 1980s and early '90s.
