February 14, 2007 | David M. Buss, DAVID M. BUSS is a professor of psychology at the University of Texas and author of "The Dangerous Passion: Why Jealousy Is as Necessary as Love and Sex."
WE BECAME ODDLY ENERGIZED when Lisa Marie Nowak, an astronaut with a sterling record, drove nearly 1,000 miles to attack Colleen Shipman, a woman Nowak believed was a rival for the man she loved. Nowak was charged with attempted murder, and her alleged "kill kit" contained a knife, 3 feet of hose, garbage bags, a BB gun and, most ominously, a steel mallet. Jealousy is possibly the most destructive emotion housed in the human brain.

Seems like a simple enough question. Seems like a pretty basic one. Like one the new owners would want to answer, what with the fans having just been dragged through an ownership nightmare. Alas, at their morning press conference Wednesday it wasn't happening. Guggenheim Baseball Management is the new owner of the Dodgers. After that, it's fill in the blanks. As if you could. At least for now. Six individuals were introduced at the press conference, but exactly who owns how much of the team was left unanswered.

The Los Angeles law firm of Kadison, Pfaelzer, Woodard, Quinn & Rossi went out of business Monday and a receiver was named to take over the 100-attorney firm, which had filed a petition in Superior Court for voluntary dissolution. John J. Quinn and several other partners announced last month that they were going to set up their own office, reportedly after a disagreement with another principal partner, Stuart L. Kadison, who wanted the 20-year-old firm to expand to compete with larger firms.

Scattered across 540 acres of San Diego County hills and ravines, the 235 opulent homes of the Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe flank a private golf course and country club with tile-roofed towers inspired by Tuscan villages. The placid panorama belies decades of bruising battles among the project's developers. The cast includes home-building titan Lennar Corp., a bankrupt La Jolla deal maker and, in an improbable late entry, con man-turned-preacher Barry Minkow. The dispute ultimately led to a federal criminal conviction against Minkow and a continuing investigation by the Justice Department.

Pat Taylor remembers the stigma surrounding genital herpes when he discovered he had the disease 15 years ago. "It was almost impossible to talk about it," said the Anaheim engineer, 45, at a recent meeting of a herpes support group called Orange County HELP. "You could not find anybody educated enough to not be scared to death." But Taylor, who has been married twice and dated in between while he has had the disease, said that today, things are different.

385 North is no more. The big, contemporary-style restaurant on N. La Cienega Boulevard, which opened with great fanfare in February of 1984, has turned into Rosalie's--a Southern California branch (or rather reinterpretation) of the popular San Francisco restaurant of the same name. Rosalie's will be operated by Bill Belloli, with Rick O'Connell (who is a woman) as executive chef, both of whom serve the same functions at the Bay Area original.
