Can Rick Perry laugh his way back into contention? His campaign seems to think it can't hurt, adding a pair of comedy shows to his itinerary as part of a sudden media blitz aimed at minimizing the damage from his 53-second debate lapse. On Thursday night, the Texas governor will read the Top 10 list on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" (here's a prediction -- he'll fall one item short). Perry also told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham Thursday that he'll be on "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central.

Corey Perry thought he knew the type of effort that was coming from his close friend and first-line mate Ryan Getzlaf. Just in case, he was braced to produce in a big way, too. Getzlaf, in extraordinary circumstances, pulled off a legendary performance of playing like his old self Friday with a goal and assist in the 3-2 victory that lifted the Ducks to a 2-0 lead over the Dallas Stars in the first-round Western Conference playoff series at Honda...

Texas Gov. Rick Perry says that his swings through California to poach businesses work. As proof, Perry said Wednesday that California companies had created about 14,000 new jobs in Texas over the last two years. These Golden State companies, which number 60 in all, have expanded, relocated or moved jobs to Texas, Perry said. Eleven of the businesses have relocated their headquarters to the Lone Star State, including longtime Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum. PHOTOS: World's most expensive cities "As states continue to compete for jobs and investment, it's clear the formula for this success exists in red states," Perry said in a Wednesday statement.

Consider this the leader setting the tone. Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf - two days after he was smashed by a puck that did so much damage to the left side of his face that doctors quit counting the stitches required to close the wound - expects to pop in some aspirin and play Friday in Game 2 of the first-round playoff series against the Dallas Stars. "If I saw my captain take a puck in the face and come back the next day, I'd want to play as hard as I possibly can," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Thursday.

Six months after a lone gunman invaded a Connecticut elementary school and shot 20 children and six adults to death, the massacre in Newtown remains the symbol most often used by gun control advocates to push for tougher laws. But for some, like Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a former and likely future presidential candidate, it may also be a business opportunity. Perry this week toured gun manufacturers in Connecticut as part of a five-day swing through the Northeast touting his state's pro-business tax and regulatory policies in the hope of wooing jobs down to the Lone Star State.

Former IndyMac Bancorp Chief Executive Michael W. Perry has won dismissal of much of the fraud lawsuit brought against him by the Securities and Exchange Commission. U.S. District Judge Manuel Real in L.A. tossed out five of the seven SEC filings by IndyMac that the agency's suit listed as grounds for action. Real ruled Monday that the filings from the giant Pasadena thrift contained no false or misleading statements to investors about IndyMac's deteriorating condition as the housing markets melted down.

Second in a series of articles focusing on key periods in the lives of the mayoral hopefuls. When Jan Perry came to Los Angeles as a college freshman to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes play in the 1974 Rose Bowl, she had no idea that a trip to a football game would change her life. "All I remember is being shocked at how warm it was when I got here and the sky was blue and that people were wearing shorts," Perry said, recalling walking down Hollywood Boulevard, visiting Olvera Street and seeing the Jackson Five in the Rose Parade.

With the Los Angeles mayoral primary a week away, an aggressive mail campaign by Jan Perry has helped push her into a three-way fight with Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti for two spots in a May runoff. From the start, Garcetti and Greuel have seen each other as the chief competition. But Perry's steady attacks via mailers - she lacked the money to advertise heavily on TV - have made her, at the very least, a credible threat to Greuel, the city controller. The race remains highly fluid, with many voters still largely unfamiliar with the candidates days before the election.

Does mayoral candidate Jan Perry think that current Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is a really good guy to have in her corner? Or maybe she thinks hizzoner's support marks the recipient as another hapless representative of the City Hall status quo. It's hard to tell where Perry stands from a pair of recent mailers delivered by her campaign. The Los Angeles city councilwoman came out with a bulk-mail pitch Tuesday that shows her side by side with Mayor V. Both are grinning.

For would-be Los Angeles Mayor Jan Perry, it was a bittersweet ground breaking last week for a residential high-rise a block from her apartment near Walt Disney Concert Hall. Dignitaries hailed Perry as a leading force behind downtown's revival. "She has unbelievable tenacity," Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina told invited guests gathered at the vacant building site for a ceremonial shoveling of dirt. But there was a poignant, unspoken subtext to the praise. Perry no longer represents the area, or even her own building.

He's scored from his knees and while being pushed into a barrel roll. Ducks forward Corey Perry has eight two-goal games, nine game-winning goals and he's let four games or more pass only twice this season without slapping the puck into the net. "He has a knack around the net that no one has, hits the net better than any shooter I've ever seen, one of the clutchest persons I've ever been around," said Ducks forward Patrick Maroon, who has...

When professional storyteller Leslie Perry was in his prime, his performances were electrifying displays of verbal pyrotechnics, with Perry shouting out passages like a hellfire preacher while sometimes dancing back and forth on the stage, his fists pumping in rhythm with the recitation. In more recent years, with his body sapped by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis , also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, Perry sat in a chair while telling his stories. And though his movements had to be far more subtle, the vocal colors he brought to his stories made them no less riveting.

The characters in Brandy Clark's songs aren't necessarily where they thought they'd be in life. There's the woman buying pharmaceuticals out of some guy's trunk in "Take a Little Pill. " There's the woman living for religion and lotto-winning dreams in "Pray to Jesus. " And there's the married woman, in "What'll Keep Me Out of Heaven," standing in front of a hotel elevator, contemplating a rendezvous with a married man. "Ten floors up he's waiting with Champagne and candlelight," Clark sings, her voice leaking both hope and preemptive regret, "What'll keep me out of heaven will take me there tonight.

SAN JOSE - The opportunity to seize the Pacific Division lead slipped away from the Ducks on Thursday, when a criticized official's whistle and third-period breakdowns left them instead beaten by the San Jose Sharks, 3-2, at SAP Pavilion. With one more game than San Jose (46-18-7) still remaining, the Ducks (45-18-7) responded with a game-on type mind-set following the defeat. “We have 12 games left. We'll be tooth and nail in every one and they'll be the same,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said.

Defense Secretary William J. Perry ordered eight F-117 Stealth fighters to remain in Kuwait "as long as they are needed" as part of a potent U.S. military force in the Persian Gulf designed to deter Iraq and Iran. "We can never turn our backs on these threats. We can never relax," Perry said before arriving in Saudi Arabia to assess measures taken to protect the more than 4,000 U.S. service members based there.

Defense Secretary William J. Perry said Monday on his return from Africa that he is more hopeful about an international effort to save millions of Rwandan refugees and that only 3,000 U.S. troops will be needed to support the humanitarian operation. The troop estimate, given to reporters at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, was lower than the 4,000 Americans that he earlier predicted would be stationed near Rwanda by the end of this week.

Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club" was greeted over the weekend with disastrous box office and horrible reviews. Most networks that had been planning to base a series on the film might be having second thoughts about those plans after seeing the evidence that the movie not only tanked with Perry's core audience, but marked his worst showing ever at the box office. But OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, isn't most networks. Perry apparently can do whatever he wants at OWN, with Winfrey's blessing.
