A federal lawsuit to stop the proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways could be good for penny-pinching fliers. The legal challenge filed in August by the U.S. Department of Justice says that the deal to create the world's largest carrier would cut competition and lead to higher fares. Until the lawsuit is settled or won by either side, don't expect the two airlines to raise fares and give federal authorities more reason to fight the merger, said Rick Seaney, chief executive of the fare monitoring site Farecompare.com.

Question: My husband and I travel to Vietnam two or three times a year to visit our family. We fly EVA Airways and book in premium economy for the extra legroom. We can book our seats 100 days in advance. But the only two-across seats that are available in Rows 21-27 are in that last row, which is near the toilet, and they don't recline; everything else is blocked. I've asked my travel agent for help - I even stood there while she called. No luck. Why does this happen? What should I do?

What do you do when your parents file restraining orders against you? In the case of one 6-foot-2 redhead, you make an educational, multimedia show. In his "The Very Worst of Varla Jean Merman," at the Hudson Avenue Theatre, Jeffery Roberson gives cross-dressing and self-absorption a good name.

'Eccentric' doesn't begin to describe Magic Cat, Michiko Kishimoto's 4-year-old shop in Little Tokyo. Along with nearly every conceivable cat collectible under the sun, the 67-year-old proprietor also stocks Elvis memorabilia and Kurosawa videos because, well, she can. Granted, the two entertainers had cat-related nicknames (Elvis was often referred to as the 'Hillbilly Cat,' while she says some called director Akira Kurosawa 'Kool Kat').

Like hip-hop and Madonna, graffiti would never last, they said. They were wrong. Spray paint, doodles and block lettering have become part of the vocabulary of contemporary art, from paintings at L.A. galleries such as New Image Art to the logo of Burbank's Urban Outfitters. These vibrant graphics are also making their way from public places to private spaces.

Fast fashion has taken on a whole new meaning lately, with designer racks rolling into driveways; truckloads of athletic shoes, fitness experts and treadmills, touching down at food festivals; and full-fledged runway shows staged on the backs of flatbed trucks. Taking a page from the gourmet food truck playbook, apparel and accessories brands are increasingly opting to barnstorm the highways and byways 21st century style, putting their products in front of people nationwide, supported by social networking tools that help get the word out and hoping to reconnect with customers where it counts — in their own backyards.

Gene Simmons knows a thing or two about night life, and now he has a new gig: bar owner. The KISS leader is one of three principals behind the recently remodeled, music-focused craft beer spot Rock & Brews, and keeping his attention at one of its outdoor bar stools is no easy task. Two sentences into explaining why chefs are the new rock stars, a pair of onlookers capture Simmons' eye. He stops the interview, and waves two young women into the sidewalk-adjacent El Segundo beer garden.

"I want it!" squealed 13-year-old Hiiaka Kaneao, pointing to a sparkly, hot pink, star-shaped bass guitar hanging inside a pink fur-lined booth. Her high-pitched voice is music to the ears of the guitar's maker, Daisy Rock Guitars. The Los Angeles retailer's colorful and smaller guitars for girls and women have gained worldwide popularity in the last several years and signaled a growing trend within the traditionally male-dominated guitar industry.
