Heather Graham - she of Rollergirl fame - is the latest actress to call out Hollywood on its sexism. "Girls" wunderkind Lena Dunham and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett have also made statements on the topic of sexism recently, with the former addressing it in a SXSW panel and the latter bringing it up during her Oscars acceptance speech in March. The "Boogie Nights" star made her fiery statements during a recent Q&A with Esquire magazine that surveyed the actress' characters as of late - roles that cast her as the perennial "sexy mother" in films such as "The Hangover" trilogy (she was in the first and third installments)

WASHINGTON - The political fallout from Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster has begun as fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham switched Thursday to support John Brennan as CIA director, saying the vote has become a “referendum” on the drone program. Graham's changed position comes after Paul, the Kentucky tea party favorite, became an overnight political sensation for holding the Senate floor nearly 13 hours as he pressed the Obama administration for assurances Americans would not be targeted on U.S. soil by unmanned military-style aircraft.

Nomikos specified that the announced November concerts "were only pencilled in. We have not canceled.
Shortly after Rep. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) rose Saturday to speak to the Senate, an aide raced through the press gallery plopping on reporters' desks the thick closing statement of Rep. Henry J. Hyde (R-Ill.), who leads the House team prosecuting President Clinton. "But where's the Graham text?" asked one reporter, throwing aside Hyde remarks that wouldn't be delivered for another three hours. "No text. He's letting it fly from note cards," the aide responded. And let it fly he did.

Two of President Obama's top domestic policy initiatives — energy and immigration — appeared on the brink of collapse on Saturday after a Republican senator at the center of both efforts threatened to jump ship in a dispute with Democrats over timing. Sens. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Saturday afternoon that they would postpone the introduction of their long-anticipated energy and climate bill, which they had planned to roll out on Monday.

Stephen Graham Jones may be the best prolific writer you haven't heard of yet, partly because his specialty is literary horror and partly because, despite having a specialty, he's quick to switch genres and hard to pin down. Count up his books and stories and anthologies and e-magazines and e-releases and he has been published 201 times -- but that was in early March, before his Texas noir "Not For Nothing" was published, and before the YA novel he co-wrote with Paul Tremblay, "Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly," came out in April.

WASHINGTON - A top Republican senator sparked reactions from both sides of the aisle after drawing a link between the crisis in Ukraine and President Obama's response to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a harsh critic of the Obama administration's foreign policy, posted a string of tweets Tuesday attributing Russian President Vladimir Putin's incursion into Ukraine's Crimea region to "a weak indecisive leader" in Washington:   It started with Benghazi.

They are departures from the organic modernism that has washed over the home decor world: Los Angeles artist Elyse Graham's geodes are wholly unnatural, otherworldly riffs on crystallized rock in neon colors that look borrowed from a nightclub, not an enchanted forest. "I like the idea of taking this natural process that takes millions of years to accomplish and re-creating it in unnatural materials," said Robert Apodaca, owner of the art and design gallery Fifth Floor, which has exhibited Graham's work and is selling the geodes.

The Rev. Billy Graham, one of the nation's most famous evangelists whose ministry tended to presidents and paupers, has been taken to a hospital for observation in Asheville, N.C., his spokesman said Wednesday. Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday on Nov. 7 at a party with guests including Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, went to the hospital Tuesday and is expected to released soon, his spokesman said. “Billy Graham is in the hospital with a respiratory congestion issue, similar to what he had a few weeks ago.

"Anyone who writes about Druids and mysteriously coordinated landscapes," Graham Robb admits, "must expect to be treated with suspicion. " Indeed, although the Druids were the learned elite of the ancient Celts, they are better known today as the inspiration for such flaky goings on as the gathering at Stonehenge of ersatz Druids in white robes celebrating the summer solstice. (Stonehenge actually antedates the Druids by millenniums.) They seem an odd subject for the critically praised biographer of Balzac, Hugo and Rimbaud, a historian whose previous works seldom look back further than the French Revolution.

No one should be surprised that the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, which began its inaugural season Friday night with an appearance by the Martha Graham Dance Company, is a high-end venue. It's in Beverly Hills. A pop-up Salvatore Ferragamo store is its first attraction, just in case you find that your shoes suddenly feel out of fashion for the promenade from the entrance in the historic post office and past impressive donated contemporary art to the new Bram Goldsmith Theater.

"It's little known that Los Angeles is the cradle of American modern dance, so if you start with Graham, you've served up the roots of the family tree and can go anywhere from there. " Janet Eilber, talking by phone from New York, should know. The artistic director of Martha Graham Dance Company since 2005, Eilber, 62, began dancing with the troupe while still a junior at the Juilliard School. She also had roles created for her during her 10 years performing with the company. It's fitting that Martha Graham Dance Company is the inaugural presentation of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, giving three concerts over two days.  CHEAT SHEET: Fall arts preview It was, after all, in Los Angeles that Graham first became a student in 1915 at the Denishawn School on a hill just west of downtown.
