A military garrison of mud-brick and seashells unearthed in Egypt's Sinai desert may be key to finding a web of Pharaonic-era defenses at the northeast gateway to ancient Egypt, archaeologists said Thursday. Inscriptions at Luxor's Karnak temple may serve as a guide to finding other outposts. But knowing the location of the garrison at the ancient city of Tharu, in a formerly fertile area of Egypt where a branch of the Nile river once met the Mediterranean Sea, is key to understanding where to begin the search.

In the sweet, heartbreaking and highly accomplished "Only the Young," premiering Monday as part of the PBS documentary series "POV," twentysomething Cal Arts alumni Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims return to the Santa Clarita Valley to make a film about teenagers in a distressed place and time -- and the pockets of beauty and relief they find there. The trio of Kevin, Garrison and Skye are their intertwined subjects, skateboarding, punk-rock churchgoers in Black Flag and Minor Threat T-shirts.

Even as he helped orchestrate the American Revolution and the creation of modern democracy, John Adams worried that the framers of history, more interested in portraiture than landscape, would choose one or two individuals - Benjamin Franklin, George Washington - to create a mythology of supermen who single-handedly built a nation. For years that fretful insight proved true, and though Adams eventually got his due, it certainly applies to other moments of cataclysmic change, none more so than the Civil War. Certainly in light of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," one could be forgiven for believing that Abraham Lincoln was the driving force behind the abolition of slavery in America.

The Stone-"JFK" bashing appearing in The Times is becoming excessive. The latest attack comes from Mathews. After acknowledging that "JFK" has some merits, he can't restrain himself from attacking it, saying, in effect, "Do not trust this movie." Mathews fails to recall that the movie--in at least two places--clearly asks the audience to do just that! Garrison, addressing his staff, says: "Let's speculate." Mr. X, meeting with Garrison, admonishes: "Find your own facts; make your own decision."

A court found K mart partially responsible for injuries suffered by a customer who shot himself in the toe while examining a rifle he wanted to buy for his 6-year-old son as a first-grade graduation gift. Palm Beach Circuit Judge Edward Garrison ruled that K mart was negligent in the June, 1987, accident because a clerk handed Richard Rubin, 29, the gun without checking to see that it was loaded. The judge awarded Rubin $10,419 on Thursday. He had sued for $200,000. The jury originally awarded Rubin $16,000, but Garrison found he was 35% negligent, reducing the corporation's liability to 65%.

The paid defenders of Mike Tyson had argued from the start that their client was not a very nice man. They said he was lewd, uncouth and untamed. He had a reputation with women, which was well known. So the young woman who was accusing this man of raping her, if indeed she was as smart as she claimed, should have known better, the defenders said. She should not have agreed to a "date." Unless, of course, she had a reputation herself. Insert here a knowing wink.

The products: We all carry the residue of modern living deep within our bodies. We get mercury from fish, pesticides from apples and polyvinyl chlorides from that "new-car smell." A 2005 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study of more than 2,000 people across the country found traces of more than 60 toxic compounds, including such nasty stuff as dioxins and uranium, in the blood and urine of participants.

Actor Lane Garrison, who was serving a 40-month prison sentence for a drunken driving crash that killed a 17-year-old Beverly Hills High student, was released Wednesday after about 21 months behind bars. The former star of the Fox TV series "Prison Break" was released from the California Correctional Institution in Tehachapi before serving his full sentence because he received credits for good behavior, Lt. Jon Bartelmie said. Garrison was charged after a December 2006 crash in which he rammed his Land Rover into a tree, killing Vahagn Setian and injuring two teenage girls.

In the heart of the Ethiopian community here, a group of friends gathered after work in an office to chew on dried khat leaves before going home to their wives and children. Sweet tea and sodas stood on a circular wooden table between green mounds of the plant, a mild narcotic grown in the Horn of Africa. As the sky grew darker the conversation became increasingly heated, flipping from religion to jobs to local politics. Suddenly, one of the men paused and turned in his chair.

Dennis McDougal's review of "A Prairie Home Companion" ("Heartland Satirist on the Circuit," Nov. 25) could not have been more inappropriate. It was cynical, shallow, misguided and humorless, everything "PHC" is not. McDougal made a futile and stupid attempt to find some weakness in Keillor, some example that makes this popular figure an object of our scorn. But Keillor's persona and interviewing style are not the appropriate subjects. Those are the interest of journalists who write as if they were trained at People magazine.

They gathered in the hallway outside Department 1 in the Beverly Hills courthouse -- dozens of teenagers in gym shoes and Uggs and sandals, heads bent over their BlackBerries and cellphones, their easy chatter belying the gravity of the event that had brought them there. Many announced it, though, on the T-shirts that bore on the front a silk-screened photograph of Vahagn Setian with his birth and death dates. On the back it read: "Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today."
