Good news out of Palm Springs this week: Work has begun on dismantling "Forever Marilyn," the grotesque colossus fabricated with typical ham-handedness by sculptor J. Seward Johnson, which has been marring an already vacant lot at a prominent downtown corner for the last two years. The sculpture is headed out of town by flatbed truck for an exhibition back East. Good news because good riddance. "Forever Marilyn" is a 26-foot-tall leviathan whose claim to notoriety is that it besmirches the memory of a marvelous 1955 movie by the late, great Billy Wilder.

This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Barry Kob in Palm Desert I recently was in Aspen, Colo., on a trip through the Rocky Mountains. The ham and bean soup at the Creperie du Village was wonderful. Is there any way you might be able to get the recipe? Ham and beans are a classic combination, and this soup doesn't disappoint in the slightest. Great Northern beans are gently cooked with aromatic vegetables and herbs to creamy tenderness, with chopped bacon and ham folded in toward the end. Thanks Barry!

The things people do for charity. Bestselling author Neil Gaiman promised he would read "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss if the fundraising campaign for Worldbuilders reached $500,000. With about five days left to go, it did. Calling the book "rather wonderful," a slightly rumpled Gaiman read the children's book classic. As he explains on his blog, Gaiman is "very beardy, because I am not going out in public, and am just writing. " Founded by author Patrick Rothfuss, Worldbuilders holds a different fundraiser each year for Heifer International.

Ever heard of pechuga , the mezcal from Oaxaca made by suspending a chicken breast ( pechuga ) from the top of the still? Forget about the worm in the bottle. That's just folklore. But this, this is something wild and woolly from the back country. Ron Cooper, the Venice artist and adventurer who jump-started the whole mezcal craze in this country with Del Maguey Single Vineyard Mezcal almost two decades ago, was showing José André's creative director Ruben García the pechuga process at the village of Santa Catarina Minas.

Packing a lot of action - if not a lot of sense - into its story, the Indian film "Dangerous Ishhq" likely won't win over any new believers to the idea of reincarnation as it weaves between a quilt of romantic thriller and historical drama. The film opens with a Mumbai supermodel (Karisma Kapoor, a star making her return to the screen after an absence of a number of years) preparing to leave for Paris to be an international face for a luxury fashion brand. As she is wavering about whether to leave behind her wealthy industrialist boyfriend, his beachfront home is attacked by a gang of kidnappers.

Pigs -- and all their tasty, crackly skinned parts -- are an obsession for many. I profess I have a snout for the stuff, be it the ethereal rinds from the Publican in Chicago or Yuca's bring-me-to-tears cochinita pibil taco -- a must whenever I'm in L.A. So, it's no surprise that my journey to Zaragoza, Spain -- an Aragonese city famous for its lightly salty Jamón de Teruel, ham from the cool, windy Teruel region -- would include its share...

Sarah Palin has smartly forsaken a career in politics for a career in political entertainment. Unburdened by the rules that keep serious politicians tethered to serious messages, her task was to toss red meat to a ravenously appreciative conservative crowd Saturday at the closing session of the American Conservative Union's annual CPAC conference. By my count, her speech got more standing ovations than the one delivered Friday by CPAC favorite Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who won the CPAC presidential straw poll.

Gandhi, Mandela and Castro took to the streets armed with certainty that the courts would never grant the change they desired. In the soppy legal drama "The Attorney," the protagonist eventually arrives at a similar conclusion as he embarks on a journey of radicalization from bourgeois self-involvement to principled crusading. Set during South Korea's bloody transition from dictatorship to democracy in the 1980s, "The Attorney" revisits the everyday terror of that era through one of its gravest sins: the detainment and torture of college students for reading school-approved Marxist literature.

WASHINGTON -- Speaking for more than 18 hours, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was bound to hit upon some familiar points and retread old arguments in his fight to stop spending on the Affordable Care Act . But the sprawling nature of his speech, intermittently interrupted by questions from colleagues, opened the door for some interesting references and, at times, strange rhetorical tactics. But few could expect that when Cruz took to the Senate floor at 2:41 p.m. Eastern time, he would go from drawing comparisons between the fight over the healthcare law and World War II, reading tweets using the #MakeDCListen hashtag , comparing Congress to World Wrestling Entertainment and reading “Green Eggs and Ham” to his daughters.

It's fitting that Ham &; Eggs Tavern , a new rock 'n' roll dive in downtown L.A., is practically next door to the Golden Gopher, Cedd Moses' first foray into manly historic core gentrification a decade ago. Ham &; Eggs harks back to how the downtown bar scene was just before it transformed into L.A.'s new party Babylon: underlighted, weirdly decorated and just cheap enough to get sauced on $20. Now that King Eddy has been revamped, Ham &;...

It was a lot of dough for a piece of old meat. But butcher Michael Feller seemed not to mind the $1,480 auction price he paid for a 101-year-old ham, which he plans to hang in his shop. The ham, cured by Cudahay in Chicago in 1892, spent most of its existence on display in a butcher's shop in the northern city of Leeds, according to Christie's, the London auction house that held the bidding.

No matter the occasion, my friend Rafael inevitably shows up with a platter of prosciutto di San Daniele, the sweeter cousin of Parma ham, that he's purchased at Roma Deli in Pasadena. It's always perfectly sliced, the way they do it in Italy, so thin the ham almost melts on the tongue and you can taste every bit of its salty-sweet goodness. That's an example of sumptuous minimalism in a charcuterie or salumi plate. And it used to be about the only option if you wanted to put together one at home.
