If there was a theme song for "White Irish Drinkers," writer-director John Gray's emotionally charged coming-of-age drama premiering Wednesday at the Toronto International Film Festival, it would probably be "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones. But more about that later. Over the years, many people said they liked the script and it got Gray work, yet no one wanted to make the movie. The script gathered dust for a decade until the digital age brought costs down enough for Gray to shoot the film on his own dime.

In 1984, John Gray's marriage broke up after only two years--a bad thing for a self-professed expert on the sexes whose livelihood was based on the relationship seminars the couple gave. Since then, Gray's professional and personal fortunes have blossomed faster than a high school crush.

Mitchell May is not your average New Age guru. Not only does he make fun of himself, and other granola heads, but he speaks frankly and honestly about the experiences that led him to become a healer--not your usual career choice. As a young man, May was in a devastating car accident that broke or shattered bones in more than 40 places. He was not expected to live, let alone walk, again. A healer helped May to recover and then took him on as his apprentice.

John L. Gray, who transformed a museum devoted to the legacy of film and recording star Gene Autry into an intercultural history center with a broad view of the term "Westerner," will announce his retirement Tuesday as president of the Autry National Center of the American West. Opened in 1988 as the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum, the institution evolved over Gray's 11-year tenure into the Museum of the American West and merged with the Southwest Museum of the American Indian in 2003.

"Liberalism has always had two faces," the English philosopher John Gray asserts in his remarkable new book on the liberal political tradition. The earliest theories of liberalism were formulated in the 17th and 18th centuries by European thinkers like Thomas Hobbes, who sought to devise a social order in which members of rival Christian denominations could live in peace.

John Joe Gray's land is 47 acres fenced with barbed wire off a dusty road in the East Texas woods. Posted by the padlocked gate is a hand-painted sign 8 feet wide: "We Are Militia and Will Live Free or Die." Beyond the gate, past the guards in camouflage, Gray's acreage along the Trinity River is his self-declared sovereign oasis. Among the 16 people with him are seven children, a recent visitor said. In case of attack, there's a subterranean bunker marked: "KIDS INSIDE."

It was meant to be a model of eco-tourism for Asia: reverential kayak journeys by a limited number of people into limestone sea caves, the lost worlds of this spectacular bay. And it worked. The venture picked up five international awards and numerous accolades. But today, as many as 1,000 kayakers enter the caves each day. Boats jam the narrow passages, tourists snap off stalactites for souvenirs, and their bellowing scares away gibbons, hornbills and other wildlife.

It is a museum prefixed with a single-barreled name, but that one name has colored most expectations of what is inside it--the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Griffith Park, founded and named after Gene Autry, the original singing cowboy of film, television and radio fame.
