Jim Harbaugh has a flattering body. That's what his wife, Sarah, told KMVQ-FM (99.7) in San Francisco earlier this week. We'll just have to take her word for it because all the rest of us see on the sideline every week is the 49ers coach wearing a very unflattering outfit -- a black sweatshirt tucked into pleated khakis. And not just any pleated khakis either. "You have to find them at Wal-Mart," Sarah Harbaugh said. "I threw them out and when he went to the combine, he found a Wal-Mart.

Yes, people do ride mass transit in Los Angeles. And once a year, they do it without pants. As part of an international improvisation event called the "No Pants Subway Ride," scores of Angelenos - fully dressed, but only from the waist up - will swarm the Red Line's Hollywood/Highland station at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Captains with nicknames like Agent Meow Meow and Agent Silky will gather groups together along the Red, Gold and Expo lines earlier on Sunday afternoon and help new riders pay fares, find their way through Union Station, and change trains.

Before the economy tanked, my favorite golf getaway spots were also the most expensive golf getaway spots in the land: Las Vegas, Hawaii, Scottsdale, Ariz. Prices have declined, but there still are many ways to drop $200 or more - in some instances way more - on a round of golf. Fear not. On a recent trip to one of those faves, the Hawaiian Islands, and Kauai in particular, my wife, Terri, and I took it upon ourselves to find good golf that is not expensive golf. We are pleased to report that, no, you don't have to sell your kids to play golf in Kauai.

"At the end of the day, it comes down to a young man in a room writing a song. " So claims one of Justin Bieber's associates in a trailer for the pop singer's new concert film, to which Pop & Hiss says: Come on, now. The songs matter, certainly, and Bieber's written or sung plenty of great ones, including several in his so-called Music Mondays series, in which he's releasing a new tune every week through next month. ("PYD," a promising -- and evidently Michael Jackson-inspired -- collaboration with R. Kelly, is due Sunday at midnight.)

A cellphone charger in a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy's pocket saved her from serious injury during a struggle in Inglewood early Tuesday when a parolee opened fire and the bullet glanced off the device. Authorities called it "miraculous. " The suspect, described as a 49-year-old parolee, was shot and killed but not before he fired again, grazing the deputy's partner in the hand, officials said. Both deputies were treated at area hospitals and released later in the day. Sheriff Lee Baca said the deputy probably would have been seriously injured had the cellphone charger not deflected the bullet, sending it down her pant leg. It grazed her leg and went out her pants.
