Go ahead, be brave: Tell one of the stars of "Moving Violations" that he reminds you of funny man Bill Murray. He's got a million cheap comebacks. John Murray, visiting from New York, offered some examples during a recent brunch: "We had the same parents." "I've heard that before." "I've given up denying it." "Just tell me how much he owes you and I'll write you a check." The 26-year-old chuckled, shrugged nonchalantly and made another pass at his Bloody Mary.

Flavio de Pecol hit the trifecta after taking his daughter to the emergency room for a horse-riding injury: hours of waiting, a 16-mile ambulance ride to a different facility and bills for more than $40,000. At least, he thought, that was the end of it. But nearly two years after his daughter's whirlwind tour of the U.S. healthcare system, De Pecol, of Newport Beach, has received yet another bill, this time for $1,054.53 that UC Irvine Medical Center failed to charge him the first time around.

Reporting from New York -- Miguel Cotto got his revenge against Antonio Margarito on Saturday, belting his bitter rival throughout nine rounds until a ringside doctor ruled that the wounded Tijuana fighter could no longer continue. The clearly crisper Cotto (37-2, 30 knockouts) repeatedly got the best of Margarito by smashing him with jabs, straight rights and sturdy lefts. By the seventh round, Margarito's previously injured right eye was closed, and an extra ringside doctor began watching the eye closely.

Have you ever slathered on sunscreen but somehow managed to miss your nose? Or the back of your hand? Or the tops of your feet? You're not the only one. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people apply less than half of the optimal amount of sunscreen, a habit that adds up to a lot of burned patches and uncomfortable rides home from the beach.
