An 8-month-old baby boy who drowned in a San Gabriel Valley home had been left unattended in a bathtub with young siblings, according to Los Angeles Sheriff's Department homicide investigators. Authorities said the infant's mother, who was not identified, was bathing him along with his 1-year-old sister and 2-year-old brother Friday morning when she stepped away for 10 to 15 minutes. When she returned, the baby was face-down in the water and not breathing, Sheriff's Deputy Irys Alvarez said Saturday.

LAS VEGAS - Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir's two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River's stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations.

AMSTERDAM - A few years ago, even before his design for an addition to the Stedelijk Museum was under construction, the Dutch architect Mels Crouwel began comparing the new wing to a giant bathtub. As PR gestures go, this was an odd one. The public uses nicknames for unusual-looking buildings all the time, often as a way to make sense of a design that strikes them as radical. But it's rare to hear an architect embrace one - especially before a project is finished, or when the nickname in question is so cheekily antiheroic.

The residence where Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman apparently had been hiding is a tidy, whitewashed house with spike-topped wrought iron fencing, a heavy metal door and blackened windows. It sits across from a high school and is surrounded by drainage canals that may have been part of a system officials said Guzman used as both a means of escape and to access a network of other homes. Guzman was nothing if not discreet. "I thought the house was empty," a neighbor told The Times on Sunday.

"She got pretty feisty," said mail carrier Thomas Breit, who found Eleanor Metz after noticing that she hadn't been picking up her mail. Metz was in fair condition at a hospital today. Breit, 32, said he told Metz he would call paramedics and she replied: "I don't care if you call Santa Claus. Just get me the hell out of here."

When paramedics arrived at Whitney Houston's hotel suite in Beverly Hills, they found her unresponsive in the bathtub, and officials said that drowning is one of the possible causes of death being investigated. The Los Angeles County coroner's office said it performed an autopsy on the singer's body Sunday, but deferred any conclusion about her death until toxicology results are available, in six to eight weeks. Sources who were briefed on the probe Sunday said drowning is one of several scenarios investigators are exploring.

Re "Grover Norquist's tough year," Opinion, Nov. 21 One thing to add to Doyle McManus' excellent piece on Republicans in Congress finally turning away from the Grover Norquist pledge never to increase taxes: Norquist has been clear about his reason for demanding that promise. He's on record advocating lowering tax revenue to, in his words, "reduce [government] to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub. " In 1949, 11 members of the American Communist Party were tried in New York City, not for a specific plan to overthrow the U.S. government by force but for a "philosophy" of violently overthrowing governments.

ISLE DE JEAN CHARLES, La. - This sliver of marshland in the Louisiana bayou would inspire most people to make a U-turn, not a movie. Members of the Biloxi-Chitimacha tribe and local Cajuns have called this swampy spit about 80 miles southwest of New Orleans home for generations, but their numbers are shrinking as rapidly as the island itself. Erosion is swallowing the soil, saltwater intrusion is killing the cypress trees and the island's wooden houses and bridges are toppling into the brackish water.
