Oh my. Six days of sob stories, and all about Enrique, beginning with "The Boy Left Behind" (Sept. 29). I hope somewhere there is an objective assessment of the misdeeds and moral failures of a number of parties: The mother who commences her relationship with our country by breaking its laws but still finds time to shack up with her new boyfriend and produce yet another child; the family members in Central America who are so lacking in will that they...

José Enrique, chef-owner of José Enrique in San Juan, Puerto Rico, was just named one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs (along with Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food in New York, Justin Cogley of Aubergine in Carmel and our own Michael Voltaggio of ink in WeHo, among others). When's the last time you've seen a chef in Puerto Rico on such a list? I'm pretty sure the answer is never. And in my opinion, the award is richly deserved. After spending a few days in Puerto Rico in January, the touted new resort restaurants paled beside the vivid flavors, funk and sheer fun of José Enrique in the ragged neighborhood near the city's covered market on la Placita de Santurce.

Enrique Bunbury, the Spanish singer-guitarist whose protean image and cryptic lyrics have caused some to view him as an Iberian Bob Dylan, will make three Southern California stops during his fall tour. Bunbury will perform Nov. 17 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, Nov. 19 at the City National Grove of Anaheim and Nov. 20 at the Hollywood Palladium as part of his "Licenciado Cantinas" tour (link in Spanish). That's a major jump up in seating capacity from Bunbury's May 2010 concert at the House of Blues Anaheim.

Billy Collins, among the most accessible of contemporary poets and an eloquent advocate of poetry's place in public life, spoke recently about why people tend to resist the genre. Too much emphasis, he feels, is put on interpretation, to the detriment of poetry's "less teachable, more bodily pleasures. " Collins' words came to mind when hearing Enrique Martínez Celaya talk about his new paintings and sculpture at L.A. Louver and how efforts to decipher the meaning of a work of art too often hijacks the experience of it. In the case of visual art, and especially art like his that makes use of familiar, recognizable imagery, "we're so attached to what's given," he said, "rather than what's underneath what's given.

Dawn was just breaking over the soft green hills of western Connecticut, and several hundred spectators, some in prams and strollers, a few on walkers, had turned up for an event as old as the nation. Unfazed by the competing allure of TV, video games or the multiplex, and undaunted by the protests of animal-rights crusaders, the circus had come to town. The Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros.

Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias' Sunday concert at Anaheim's Honda Center has been canceled. The two are currently co-anchoring a tour -- Iglesias' first joint venture and the first headlining outing for Lopez -- which is scheduled to roll into the Southland with a pair of shows in Anaheim and Los Angeles.

The tour's other three area concerts -- Saturday's show and two at Staples Center scheduled for next weekend -- will be performed as originally planned.
