THE cast of CBS' "The New Adventures of Old Christine" has just finished the first scene of the show's second-season finale. The studio audience has laughed big eight times in 12 pages of script, making the warm-up guy's smile just as big. But this, apparently, is not enough. The writers and producers huddle quickly behind the video monitors while the actors hang loose.

WASHINGTON -- Republicans accused of waging a "war on women" attempted to send a message to the nation with the selection of Washington state Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the top woman in GOP leadership and a mother of three, to deliver the party's response Tuesday night to President Obama's State of the Union address. The House GOP, though, will send another message just hours before the president visits the House chamber -- voting on a bill called the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act, which seeks to expand a prohibition on the use of federal dollars to pay for abortions.

A federal judge on Tuesday turned down the request of a political committee with close ties to the Department of Water and Power employee unions that sought to bar the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission from enforcing a campaign contribution limit. The group, Working Californians, said the law was preventing it from making independent expenditures for Los Angeles City Council candidate Christine Essel in her Dec. 8 runoff against Assemblyman Paul Krekorian (D-Los Angeles). Independent groups have spent more than $542,000 on Essel's campaign for the San Fernando Valley seat of former Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who is now city controller.

If a one-eyed gypsy with very bad teeth asks you for anything, and really, I cannot emphasize this enough, say yes. Don't waver, don't bargain; anything short of yes could put you on a fast track to damnation as surely as a broken mirror will bring you seven years of bad luck. Look at what happens to Christine, a very good egg boiled to perfection by circumstance and a lot of good work by Alison Lohman.

As "The Phantom of the Opera" prepares to disappear from the Ahmanson Theatre for the last time Sunday, it's time to tell stories. To most of the onlookers, L.A.'s "Phantom"--played by Michael Crawford, Robert Guillaume and Davis Gaines--appeared to be a marvel of well-oiled stagecraft. But appearances can deceive--which is perhaps appropriate, considering that the show is about a man with appearance problems of his own.

Re "Is The End Near?" (July 30): "Driver may disappear at any time?" Give me a break--the freeways are dangerous enough already. Christians who really believe in the Rapture should have a "designated sinner" in the car with them at all times. CHRISTINE A. LEHMAN Los Angeles

To fashion the costumes for Summit Entertainment's military sci-fi film "Ender's Game," designer Christine Bieselin Clark used not only patterns and sewing machines but also lasers and magnets. Crafting futuristic threads and helmets for the film, which opens Nov. 1, was "sci-fi just in its process," she said. Bieselin Clark, 41, began her career in a much lower-tech space: the theater. She grew up on Long Island, a stone's throw from Broadway, earned a degree in theater arts from Stony Brook University and went on to design costumes for regional theater productions all over the East Coast.

Romance and humor are famous homebodies; they never travel as much as they should. Shot mainly in Los Angeles' Koreatown, the genre elements of the romantic comedy "Wedding Palace" attempt a transpacific transit, but get lost in translation. Director Christine Yoo's ambitious debut speaks to Korean American courtship and familial relations while satirizing them, and the result is as inventive - stuffed with animated sequences, a music video and a fake commercial - as it is tonally muddled.

As the Federal Reserve weighs an imminent cut in its extraordinary economic stimulus, many outside the United States are pleading with the Fed: "Would you consider the impact on us too?" That essentially was the message Friday from the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde. Speaking at the Fed's summer conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Lagarde turned the spotlight on what has emerged as the main global economic issue of the day - the bold actions of central banks and, as she put it, how these policies "in one corner of the world can reach all corners.

The corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue offers a picture postcard view of the new, revitalized Tinseltown. The boulevard is jammed with tourists, the streets lined with tour buses. Street performers dressed in colorful costumes entertain and panhandle on the sidewalk in front of chain stores such as Forever 21, Sephora, the Hard Rock Cafe and Express. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel films his late-night show across the street. But this week, Hollywood got a stark reminder that for all the upscale development and trendy venues, the district hasn't fully shaken off its darker past.

Moments later, according to a law enforcement source, one of the men demanded she pay a dollar for the picture. When she refused, police say, two of the men allegedly pinned Calderon's co-worker against a wall.

Lululemon Athletica Inc.'s black yoga pants may have made a comeback after being recalled for being too sheer, but the same can't be said for the company's chief executive, Christine Day. Five and a half years after taking over the helm at the Vancouver, Canada, yoga wear brand, Day will step down once a replacement is found, Lululemon said in a statement Monday. Board members formed a search committee to find Day's successor but decided to announce her departure to ensure “a healthy transition period,” the company said.
