George Rose, the essence of what a British character actor would want to be, was killed when his car swerved into a ditch near the Dominican Republic city of Puerta Plata, police there said Thursday. He was 68 and the Associated Press quoted Officer Jose Nunez as saying the accident that claimed the life of the two-time Tony-award winning actor--seen here only two months ago in "Drood"--occurred about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday near Puerta Plata, which is 160 miles northwest of Santo Domingo.

The narrative reads as if it came straight out of a spy novel or a movie script. But it is a court document for a case involving Activision Blizzard Inc. and its multibillion-dollar Call of Duty military shooter franchise.

Today's luminaries in their own fields include Jacques Cousteau, Fernando Valenzuela, Stevie Wonder, Bob Hope and William A. Warriner. William who?

The Supreme Court ended its term with a vigorous defense of free speech, striking down a California law that banned sales of violent video games to minors and effectively shielding the entertainment industry from any government effort to limit violent content. "Like books, plays and movies, video games communicate ideas," said Justice Antonin Scalia in his majority opinion Monday. And he said there was "no tradition in this country of specially restricting children's access to depictions of violence.

The articles by Shaw on newspaper design, questions of style over substance and the use of color photography on the pages of newsprint, brought to mind a conversation I had with a photographer working for USA Today in town to cover the Los Angeles Raiders-New England Patriots playoff game. The photographer told me he was only going to photograph the New England players and fans. Why? I asked. Because New England fans and players are dressed in vivid red, white and blue, while the Los Angeles fans and players look like they are headed for a funeral in their black and silver, he replied succinctly.
