A trial was held in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday. There was testimony from a fingerprint expert. Lawyers cross-examined witnesses. The defendant presented an alibi.

Art is important at McGaugh Elementary School in Seal Beach, where Pollock, Homer and O'Keeffe will come alive this spring, as they do every year during the school's unusual arts pageant.

"The abuse of greatness," Brutus is heard saying in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" at the Mark Taper Forum, "is when it disjoins remorse from power." The abuse of power, one might comment on the occasion of the opening of this production, is when it disjoins remorse from greatness. Translation: If you, the director in power, are going to update a text to make it more urgent and topical, use care to preserve its greatness or be sorry. All is admissible if it is made to work.
