Hunter "Patch" Adams, the world's funniest physician, is doing his laundry, a mountain of gaudy clown pants that he scoops from the kitchen table and shoves into the washer. Let other doctors wear white coats and a somber demeanor. Give Adams a pair of baggy britches and a goofy smile and lead him to a children's hospital, an old-folks' home, a shopping mall, wherever people are suffering. If you ask the 53-year-old longhair, that's just about everywhere these days.

Officials at UC San Diego apologized Monday to students and guests at Sunday's commencement who were offended that speaker Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams bared his buttocks briefly. Adams, whose offbeat approach to medicine was celebrated in a 1998 movie starring Robin Williams, turned his back on the 4,000 persons in the crowd and pulled down his bright pants. Joseph Watson, vice chancellor, called the incident "unfortunate."

WASHINGTON — Chris Kunitz scored the tiebreaking goal at 2 minutes 36 seconds of the third period, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat Washington, 2-1, on Thursday night to keep the Capitals winless under new Coach Dale Hunter. Craig Adams also scored for the Penguins, who improved to 4-1-1 since captain Sidney Crosby returned to the lineup following an 11-month absence with a concussion. Jason Chimera got his team-leading 10th goal for the Capitals, who were 11-0-2 against their bitter rivals in the regular season since March 8, 2009.

January 18, 1999 | MARVIN MINOFF and MIKE FARRELL, Marvin Minoff and Mike Farrell, partners in Sherman Oaks-based Farrell/Minoff Productions, are two of the producers of "Patch Adams."
The examination of "Patch Adams" by Andrew G. Kadar (billed as a practicing physician and freelance writer) results in a rather nicely written but sadly very poor diagnosis ("Medical Schools Do Teach Humanity," Jan. 4). Writer Kadar seems to understand that one can "take some liberties with the facts" of a true story to "create compelling drama," but Dr.

One moment, the Angels are on the verge of irrelevancy, their season destined for a play-out-the-string September. The next, they're streaming out of their dugout in celebration, their season brimming with meaning and hope. It seems statistically impossible for one swing of the bat to be the defining moment of a 162-game season filled with more than 10,000 swings. But if the Angels make the playoffs, they will point to Mark Trumbo's walk-off two-run home run against the Texas Rangers on Aug. 18 as that pivotal swat.

The moment of truth in Tom Shadyac's "Patch Adams," the moment that will test audience willingness to suspend disbelief, comes at about the midpoint of the movie when a man writhing in agony with pancreatic cancer is made to laugh by a doctor acting like a clown. It's not that such a thing couldn't happen. Maybe it did.

Tiger Woods awakened Tuesday morning to see his picture at the top of the front page of the Washington Post. In the New York Times, there was a full-page advertisement announcing a new association between Woods and Golf Digest. When Woods arrived at Congressional Country Club to play a practice round for the U.S. Open, he needed a security detail of 20 to protect him from the crowds. Reporters were told they would not be allowed inside the tee area when Woods was there.
