Jonathan Katz is a stand-up comedian who has become a hit by getting people to lie down. Actually, it's not exactly Katz who is laying folks down, but his animated alter ego, "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist," the squiggly psychiatrist who does his best to treat his quirky patients while controlling his own whirlwind life. Many of his "patients" are celebrities and fellow comics who lend their voices to the comedy. Since premiering on Comedy Central, "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist," which Katz helped create, hasn't had much time for the couch.

In the 20th century, it became a theme that haunted most of the best writers of fiction: D.H. Lawrence and Andre Gide, Jean Genet and Marcel Proust, Christopher Isherwood and Thomas Mann, Virginia Woolf and Willa Cather.

How's this for a special effect? Not content with being one of Hollywood's largest prop- and set-design companies, Cinnabar recently transformed itself into a designer for another entertainment industry: shopping. Retail is "a natural crossover" says Jonathan Katz, the 42-year-old founder, CEO and president of Cinnabar, which in 11 years has grown from a garage operation to an $8.5 million-a-year business.

How does Jonathan Katz know he's hot stuff in Hollywood? "HBO took out this full-page ad recently with stars of its shows and specials," says Katz, who had a stand-up special on the network last year. "I was the only one I'd never heard of." And no one is more bemused by this sudden success than the short and balding comic-writer who, at 49, is suddenly being coddled by networks and production companies alike. All this as a result of "Dr.

Recently, in Manhattan's Central Park, I overheard an interchange between a little girl and her mother that highlights the currently heated debate about whether gender roles are innate or learned, natural or invented. "I've had enough practice being a girl," the little one said. "Now I want to practice being a boy." I wondered what the mother would say. This was, after all, New York, and I expected her answer to reflect progressive views. But, no. The mother trotted out the conservative commonplaces, telling her daughter, "You were born a girl and will always be one. Girls are different from boys and behave in different ways.

A judge in Albany dismissed criminal charges against a small-town mayor for marrying gay couples, saying the state failed to show it had a legitimate interest in banning same-sex weddings.

A U.S. government proposal to let investors opt for faster trades rather than wait for the best price would set a standard that protects shareholders, the California State Teachers' Retirement System said Thursday. The Securities and Exchange Commission is considering relaxing the so-called trade-through requirement that exchanges find the best price for investors.

Orange County, one of a handful of counties without a local arts agency, suffers financially and culturally as a result, the head of a national arts advocacy group and a top state arts official said Friday. While the arts attract private contributions here, a local arts agency would draw additional state and federal money as well, said Jonathan Katz, executive director of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies in Washington, D.C.
