As tempting as it might be, you can't actually buy anything at the Herman Miller showroom, which has just opened in a former warehouse in Los Angeles, near Culver City. The facility exists to offer a comprehensive look at the company's storied furniture as well as a peek at future designs, says Lori Gee, Herman Miller's director of workplace solutions.

Will they ever develop a system that prevents owners from foolishly spending their money?

Amanda Beard's Playboy pictorial was all the rage. Asked whether she would consider posing nude, Leisel Jones of Australia, world champion in the breast stroke, laughed and told Times reporter Lisa Dillman, "I don't think I have the body for it.

When he finally decided it was time to get back in uniform and try to contribute to the Philadelphia 76ers' quest for an NBA title, Matt Geiger said it took a big man to admit he made a mistake. A smart coach knows not to hold a grudge.
