F. Scott Fitzgerald, who once said, "There are no second acts in American lives," probably wouldn't know what to make of Craig Kilborn. After all, the 47-year-old Minnesota native is about to start his fourth act. The lanky ex-host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and CBS' "The Late Late Show" returns to television with "The Kilborn File," a topical half-hour talk and comedy show that debuts at 6:30 p.m. Monday on Fox's KTTV-TV Channel 11....

Dreaming is life's great solitary adventure. Whatever pleasures or terrors the dream state provides, we experience them alone or not at all. But what if other people could literally invade our dreams, what if a technology existed that enabled interlopers to create and manipulate sleeping life with the goal of stealing our secret thoughts, or more unsettling still, implanting ideas in the deepest of subconscious states and making us believe they're...

I read with great enthusiasm Sergio Ortiz's article, "New Orleans, They Wrote" (Sept. 24), particularly a five-paragraph reference to F. Scott Fitzgerald.
