Some kind of powerful witchcraft gripped the ratings for FX's "American Horror Story: Coven. " Wednesday's premiere of FX's horror miniseries scared up the best numbers yet in the "American Horror Story" franchise, with 5.5 million total viewers tuning in, according to Nielsen. That was up more than 40% compared with the premiere of "American Horror Story: Asylum," which drew 3.8 million last year.

I was appalled to see the comment by Dr. Steve Raffin, a medical director of Foundation Health Care, concerning the "covenant" between an insurer and a "covered life"--which in the past was referred to as a patient ("Losing Patience," July 9). The only covenant involved here is between the patient and doctor to attempt to restore health and do no harm. The insurance policy, on the other hand, is a business contract, usually between an employer and the most successful salesperson to ply his or her proposal.

The third version of "American Horror Story," subtitled "Coven," will premiere Oct. 9 on FX, and judging by the just-released teaser for the new season, the witches will be just as creepy as the lunatics and serial killers last season. The 20-second teaser shows three women, apparently set to be burned at the stake. But a simple turn of the camera reveals that they're actually floating in front of the stakes, completely in control of the situation. The third season of executive producer Ryan Murphy's anthology-style horror series will feature returning "AHS" star Jessica Lange, alongside Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O'Hare, Patti LuPone, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Emma Roberts.

Superior Court Judge Miriam Vogel's ruling allowing a developer to continue his 95-foot-high building in violation of a covenant most certainly will give developers the "go-ahead" to simply ignore legal agreements. The name of the game will be to go forth hurriedly, trusting an impotent or lethargic public and a legal precedent set by the Vogel ruling to gain their financial ends. If, on the other hand, the judge had ruled that the out-of-compliance portion had to be dismantled, it would most certainly send a message to other developers to observe existing agreements or covenants.

The group known as Roman Catholic Womenpriests held the ceremony at the Church of the Covenant, a Protestant Church in Boston. The group said the three women -- Gloria Carpeneto of Baltimore, Judy Lee of Fort Myers, Fla., and Gabriella Velardi Ward of New York -- were responding to a call to serve the church. The Archdiocese of Boston issued a statement decrying the ceremony.

Opting to stay with the community status quo, voters in Rancho Santa Fe on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected an incorporation proposal that sought to usher in a new era of home rule for the wealthy enclave. Despite a two-year effort by backers of cityhood, 1,520 of the voters opposed the incorporation measure, while 651 favored the idea.

There's an old saying that cobblers' children have no shoes. So it was that Mike Sitrick chose to make his case in court, rather than in the media, over a private financial dispute ("PR Guru's Public Spat Over a Debt," Oct. 21). The case against Ryan Kavanaugh does not hinge on his ability to pay at the time of Sitrick's judgment against Kavanaugh, nor his net worth in November 2002, but rather on the accuracy of his written representation that he had assets of $100,000 or less at the time of a 2002 agreement with Sitrick.

If the terms are right, residents of this exclusive community, where thick groves of eucalyptus trees frame lush golfing greens and an "average" home can fetch half a million dollars, may try to hitch a ride on the incorporation bandwagon being piloted by two of their coastal neighbors. "This is only the exploratory stage, but we think it's worth our while to take a look at what kind of advantages the ranch would enjoy under cityhood," said Lewis W. Reich, president of the Rancho Santa Fe Assn.

A summer TV press tour panel about FX's "American Horror Story: Coven" briefly became a horror of its own for NBC when "Harry's Law" star Kathy Bates took a colorful swipe at her former network. When asked whether it took a special project to lure her back to TV after her experience with the David E. Kelley-created legal drama, she tensed noticeably. "I think they treated us like [dirt]. They kicked us to the curb," she said. "I think they disrespected us and our 7 to 10 milliion viewers, and I think they're getting what they deserve.

BOSTON -- The Boston Marathon's finish line, a site of tragedy six days ago, became a place of worship Sunday afternoon as those attending an interfaith gathering set about "reconsecrating" the street. Attendees, spilling past barriers set up for the crowd and into Berkeley Street -- the closest spot open to the public near the finish line -- sang "America the Beautiful" and several hymns, including "Guide My Feet While I Run This Race.

How did Jeff Morgan morph from a nice Jewish boy from New York into a sax player and bandleader in sequined tuxedo, then into one of the leading wine journalists in the United States, and finally into a kosher wine maker in the Napa Valley? And one who makes not just any kosher wines but a Cabernet Sauvignon that garners big points and can easily hold its own against the big boys' Napa Valley Cabs? It's a long story filled with digressions. As a young musician, Morgan went to France to study flute, then got a job as sax player and eventually bandleader at the Grand Casinoin Monte Carlo, developing a love of food and wine.

Question: Some homeowner associations in my neighborhood have written restrictions into their covenants, conditions and restrictions limiting the owners' ability to rent out their units, while others have no such restrictions. When I went to sell my unit, the real estate saleswoman told me she has a duty to warn all other salespeople and prospective buyers of the rental restriction. She said she needed my permission to include a warning in sales advertisements and with listing services that the buyer should plan to occupy the unit as this homeowner association's CC&Rs regulate and/or cap the number of rentals.

It's Wednesday on the CW, the closest thing that broadcast television has to a youth network, and the curtain is being pulled back on two new series: a supernatural teen drama that does things right, and a reality show that makes a good point about not judging books by their cover (or their own reality shows), though it is artificial and thin and smeared with the dubious glitter of minor celebrity. "Destiny's not easy to run from," we hear a voice say at the top of "The Secret Circle.

The Rev. John Stott did not fill stadiums with the faithful like his longtime friend, Billy Graham , or give the invocation at a presidential inauguration, as megachurch pastor Rick Warren did for Barack Obama. Yet he was a giant of the evangelical world — perhaps the most influential evangelist most people have never heard of. Unassuming but erudite, the Anglican pastor who died at 90 Wednesday in Surrey, England, after several months of deteriorating health, wrote 50 books, including the 1958 classic "Basic Christianity," which sold more than 2.5 million copies.

December 18, 1988 | Richard John Neuhaus, Neuhaus is director of the Center on Religion and Society, New York City, and author of "The Catholic Moment: The Paradox of the Church in the Postmodern World" (Harper & Row). and
The intellectual air is filled with talk about our having entered a period of history called "postmodern." "Modern" literally means "just now," and it is not clear how we can live in a time that is after just now. Just now is where, quite inescapably, we all live. Whether we are looking backward or forward, we are looking just now. Yet "modern" has taken on many other meanings in the last 200 years or so. It signifies a world that has been rationalized, specialized and secularized. The modern world view is premised upon the individual, the autonomous self, who is related by calculation and contract to other autonomous selves in a universe that is very much like a machine in which technique is king.

A coalition of one Re "Strikes on Libya intensify," March 21 Here we go again, attacking another country as part of a coalition. It starts out as a coalition, then, when the conflict continues, the other members quit, leaving the U.S. to foot much of the bill. Time and time again we end up fighting the battle alone for years and paying for something we cannot afford. Why don't we ever get out when the others leave? Meanwhile, we are laying off teachers and police, unemployment remains at unacceptable levels, healthcare is unattainable for many and the overall economic struggle continues.
