A restaurant patron was arrested over the weekend after he refused to pay for his $46 squid and steak dinner that he claimed was "too rare," and then assaulted workers who tried to stop him from fleeing, police said. Joseph Lee was taken into custody about 8:50 p.m. Saturday on suspicion of assault and refusing to pay for his dinner at Zono Sushi in Glendale, according to local police. Most of the incident was recorded on the server's cellphone, police added. Before Lee was released Sunday on $60,000 bail, he reportedly told police he was a first-time customer at the restaurant in the 100 block of North Maryland and was dissatisfied with his meal.

Comic actor John Ritter died on his daughter's 5th birthday in September 2003. The next day, his widow, actress Amy Yasbeck, told the girl that her dad's death was unavoidable. Since then, Yasbeck has come to believe the story she told their daughter Stella was wrong. "The doctors told it to me like I was 5 and I told it to her like she was 5," Yasbeck said in an interview with The Times. "The truth is, it's a lot more complicated and it's a lot more sad."

"Dreaming of Joseph Lees" paints a portrait of a young woman who must at last assert herself if she is to have any hope of happiness. The beauty of this English picture is that until its very last seconds we don't know if she will or not, for her story could just as credibly go either way. However, by then we've long since become caught up in her psychological struggle.

A physician who examined Ritter two years before he died at age 54 was also held blameless. Jurors said they ignored the aura of celebrity surrounding the civil trial, as well as evidence of Ritter's sterling qualities as a father and actor, in reaching their conclusions.

Mobile home parks: It would be difficult for anyone not having lived in a mobile park in Orange County the past 10 years to realize what has transpired in some of the parks. The great increase in land values has made it impossible to have additional mobile parks available. For the past three or four years, the park owners have taken advantage of park tenants because there are no new parks available--and no laws to prevent rent increases. As you know, most of the tenants in mobile parks are seniors on limited incomes.
