A Dodgers-Giants pennant fight only intensifies the bad feelings between El Lay and Ess Eff, as the late San Francisco columnist Herb Caen used to call the cities. Which makes this the perfect time to stock up on the insults compiled by Jon Winokur in "The War Between the State -- Northern California vs. Southern California." Here, for example, are comments by some observers who did not leave their hearts in cable-car land: * "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

JUST so you know, F*art stands for Functional Art, according to owners Steve Cindoyan and Karina Macias. "We pronounce it Eff Art," says Macias, who isn't bothered by alternate pronunciations.

For Zac Efron, it appears that one awesome shirtless performance has led right to another, as he accepted his MTV Movie Award half naked on Sunday night.  The actor, who won the trophy for shirtless performance by stripping down in "That Awkward Moment," had promised in March to take off his top for the awards if he beat Chris Hemsworth's hotness in "Thor. " At first, it seemed as if he wasn't going to follow through on his pledge. But with Rita Ora providing a bit of stripping assistance - she came up behind him and ripped open his snap-closure shirt - he eventually delivered.  "If I beat Thor- I'm accepting the award shirtless on stage.

Anyone who exposes truly sensitive government secrets can be reasonably certain to have his or her identity revealed eventually (see, e.g., Daniel Ellsberg or Bradley Manning). So it made a certain amount of sense for Edward J. Snowden to announce over the weekend that he was the one who blew the whistle on the National Security Agency's classified and extraordinarily broad surveillance program.

Comstockery and bowdlerism have been menacing artistic expression since long before the eras of either Anthony Comstock or Thomas Bowlder, the men whose names became wedded to literary censorship. Bowlder published a G-rated volume of Shakespeare in 1818, and Comstock, as secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice in the 1870s, helped destroy 160 tons of literature and pictures he deemed immoral.
