In May 1997, the Los Angeles Times published J.R. Moehringer's heartfelt story "Resurrecting the Champ," chronicling the sad life of a professional boxer who was homeless and living on the streets. More than just a tale about the downfall of a sports figure, the article also dealt with Moehringer's relationship with "The Champ," as well as the writer coming to terms with his own father's abandonment of the family when he was a baby.

Airline mergers have put more than 70% of the nation's domestic traffic in the hands of four major carriers. But low-cost airlines still have some influence over airfares. A new study shows that when airlines such as JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, Alaska and Southwest launch service on an existing domestic route, the average price from all carriers drops as much as 67%. It's good news for travelers, but aviation experts say most popular routes are still dominated by the four biggest carriers: United, Delta, Southwest and the soon-to-be-merged American and US Airways.

CAIRO -- The only candidate running for president against Egypt's former military chief, Abdel Fattah Sisi, has reportedly said that if elected he would put Sisi on trial in connection with the deaths of hundreds of protesters. "I don't treat Sisi as a criminal, but I plan to bring him to court …. When I do this, I aim to heal wounds without opening up new confrontations," candidate Hamdeen Sabahi was quoted as saying by the Egyptian news outlet Youm7 on Friday. Sabahi's campaign denied the comments were his. But Youm7 posted an audio recording of a voice that sounded much like the candidate.

As Mike Sager tells it, the letter arrived 18 months ago, written by Janet Cooke in her choolteacher hand. The proposal: that he, as her former boyfriend and Washington Post colleague, tell her story at last. Before the 12,000-word piece even surfaced in the June issue of GQ, Hollywood jumped in head-first. In a May 16 bidding war, TriStar Pictures committed a whopping $1.6 million for the movie rights, payable in full when principal photography begins.

Los Angeles County officials have been complaining for years about the ever-decreasing number of reporters who cover them. The county press room, once bustling with a dozen or more reporters, now looks like a ghost town, home to three reporters on a good day. Nonetheless, the Board of Supervisors has decided that the few journalists still around are causing problematic "traffic jams" during board meetings. So supervisors have decreed that reporters can no longer interview key personnel in the back rooms and corridors where the officials work during board meetings.

The Times' UCLA reporter Chris Foster, USC reporter Gary Klein and national columnist Chris Dufresne chatted this afternoon about a variety of topics. Moderator John Cherwa, Times deputy sports editor, pointed out that Dufresne correctly predicted that when USC and California play this weekend they would both be coming off losses. Although Dufresne said the Pac-12 Conference is much stronger this season than it has been in recent years, he ranks the Big 12 as the nation's No. 1 conference with the SEC at No. 2 and Pac-12 at No. 3. He also said that Stanford, coming off a 21-14 victory over the Trojans, could be the team to watch in the Pac-12.

It would be imperceptible to all but the most insidery of campaign aficionados, but coverage of the presidential race took on a bit of momentum Monday. That's when Mitt Romney's traveling press corps kicked off “protective pool” coverage of Republican candidate. A routine of campaign coverage for decades, the pools give reporters limited access to candidates even on the days when they have no planned events. The theory is that the press should have maximum access to those who would be president, to witness a simple aside to a voter, contact with a big-money donor or some unforeseen disaster.

Darwin Payne, 76, of Dallas, was among the crowd of reporters dispatched to cover the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  Now a professor emeritus of communications at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Payne discussed his memories of that day with the Los Angeles Times. He recounted the tense atmosphere surrounding Kennedy's visit, seeing Lee Harvey Oswald and interviewing Abraham Zapruder, who with his home movie camera captured the fatal shot. What did you think of Kennedy before he came to Dallas?

CAIRO - With the appearance of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, in the Arab world's most populous country, health officials face a tough new challenge in confronting the often lethal virus. Egypt's Ministry of Health said Saturday that the country's first case had been discovered, identifying the patient as a 27-year-old Egyptian man who had been living and working in Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh. He was placed in quarantine at a Cairo hospital immediately upon his return.

Between a cluster of bars in this small coastal town, middle-aged European men hover around dozens of fresh-faced Brazilian women in tight dresses. Around the corner, two girls who look to be in their teens flag down cars, signaling their availability to potential clients. Most such activity, however, seems confined to a small, seedy tourist strip, the last gasp of a bygone era. Natal, long known as a hot spot for sex tourism, has seen fewer problems in the wake of a national economic boom and concerted government efforts to cut back on the Carnaval nation's carnal image.

CAIRO - Middle East Respiratory Syndrome has come to Egypt. State television said Saturday that the country's first case had been discovered. It said the patient, who was hospitalized in Cairo, had recently traveled to Saudi Arabia, where the virus was first identified. Saudi Arabia had announced hours earlier that the death toll in the kingdom had reached 92. In addition, an Indonesian man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia died Friday after returning home, and the virus has been found elsewhere in the Middle East, including Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

One of the earliest public responses by a Clippers player following racist comments allegedly made by team owner Donald Sterling didn't involve a single word. Clippers center DeAndre Jordan posted a picture to his Instagram account Saturday morning that was simply a square black image. Jordan then tweeted the link to his more than 426,000 Twitter followers without adding any commentary. The image seems to be similar to the blacked-out profile image that people used in support of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot to death in Florida by George Zimmerman in 2012.

And the cars and trucks pump out an average of 286 grams of carbon dioxide per mile, nine grams less than the EPA standard.

Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig, the newest Hollywood superstar, pulled a familiar move in this town. He told the media to get lost. For a minute, anyway. As reporters gathered in the Dodgers clubhouse Monday, Puig got on hands and knees, affixing white tape to the carpet in front of the locker area he shares with infielder Luis Cruz. Puig took a blue marker and, in Spanish, wrote that reporters were forbidden from entering the area. Puig was smiling the whole time, and he pulled up the tape after a minute.

MEXICO CITY -- Mexican journalists on Sunday marched in this capital and several other states to protest violence that has claimed the lives of co-workers and silenced news media in parts of the country. Chanting “Justice!” and “Solution!” the journalists demanded government authorities investigate a string of murders, kidnappings and threats suffered by reporters and media workers in recent years. The demonstrators chose Sunday because it has been exactly a year since the slaying of Regina Martinez, a reporter for Mexico's leading newsmagazine Proceso.

SLOVYANSK, Ukraine -- Ukrainian government troops killed at least two pro-Russia separatist gunmen in Slovyansk on Thursday and drove away others occupying key public buildings in the city of Mariupol in an operation the Kremlin condemned as the Kiev government attacking "its own people. " Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the actions in eastern Ukraine and the deployment of NATO forces in member states bordering Russia to the west had "forced" the Kremlin to order more military drills of its troops amassed on Ukraine's border.
