A former Securities and Exchange Commission official said greater disclosure of investment banks' highest-paid employees - aside from corporate officers - would not necessarily aid shareholders. Lynn Turner, who was the SEC's chief accountant from 1998 to 2001, said knowing top employees' compensation packages is not as important as knowing how much risk they are taking on and what companies are doing to mitigate those risks. "People in America get way too carried away with wanting to know what everyone else's salaries are," Turner said.

Rules put in place under the Dodd-Frank financial reform law give Wall Street firms significant leeway in deciding which employees - aside from corporate executives - will have their pay tied to long-term performance, a prominent securities law expert said. The Times spotlighted the top 50 highest-paid employees at Lehman Brothers in the years running up to the bank's 2008 bankruptcy.

Few games can humble a man quite so quickly or thoroughly as golf. Every weekend hacker with a double-figure handicap should find a bit of amusement--and consolation--in the case of a pro named Larry Rinker. He made 14 eagles last year, the most by any player on the tour. He also won $195,000, and felt cocky enough to set a goal of $300,000 in 1986. Last month in Phoenix, Rinker managed to shoot an 11 on a par-3 hole. That's not easy even if you're a bad golfer.

His idea of a good time is riding an exercise bike and lifting weights. Even on Sunday, his biggest day in golf, George Burns III seemed to fight the urge to smile broadly or say anything that might be described as amusing.

That summer of 1973, she was the perfect Washington wife, standing by her man no matter what. Impeccably dressed, flawlessly made up, her hair pulled back into a polished bun, she mesmerized the nation with the silent vigil she kept behind her husband's witness table day after day at the Watergate hearings while his testimony brought down a President. What a difference 14 years can make. Yes, she still is married to John Dean, only now they live in Coldwater Canyon.
