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.

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.

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.

Dear little girls and Gleeks of America: You can't have "Wicked. " Give it back, OK? When I first saw "Wicked" on Broadway in 2003, it seemed clear that the show was a subversive satire designed expressly for disillusioned middle-agers like me. With metaphorically disturbing scenes of mob rule, and intimations of fascism and genocide, the show sent the audience home thinking about an angry, ignorant, violence-prone populace running roughshod...
