The Libertines have reunited, and for the most Pete Doherty-ish reason possible. The acclaimed but troubled English rock band will perform in London's Hyde Park on July 5. The group had previously reunited for a festival run in 2010 but had not released a new album in over a decade. Before the formal announcement, frontman Doherty told the Israeli paper Ynet  ( via Pitchfork ) that the group had accepted an offer to play the show. Spiritualized and the Pogues will open.

The band is getting back together. Well, at least two-thirds of it. Based on line rushes at Thursday's morning skate at Staples Center, it appears as though Kings captain Dustin Brown and center Anze Kopitar will be reunited for Game 4 against the Sharks on Tuesday night. They were a fixture, along with winger Justin Williams, during the Kings' run to the Stanley Cup in 2012, and a frequent partnership during many of their years with the Kings. There is a slight wrinkle, however, as Marian Gaborik was with them on Thursday morning.

Re "INS Toughens Rules on Sponsoring Immigrants," Oct. 21: All the media's repeated references to immigrants being separated from their impoverished "loved ones" are getting more and more maudlin and ring hollow. If immigrant family sponsors really care all that much for every one of their dependent extended family members, they can all darn well reunite in the sponsor's home country. Otherwise it's high time to start thinking about our native-born families for a change! HARVEY PEARSON Los Angeles

As good hockey people Dave Taylor and Andy Murray have become supplicants to their unknowledgeable and/or absentee brass, the newest move in the "Fiscal Responsibility" strategy emerges: "Let's trade our leading scorer." Maybe they can send him to Dallas to reunite with the last player deemed an unwise investment by the brass, Philippe Boucher, the league's plus/minus leader [in the past week]. Maybe we'll trade one or both of our best defensemen in Schneider and Miller, greedy lot that they are bound to be. But better yet, let's just trade Anschutz and Leiweke to their home state of Colorado.

Re "Weigh the Risk of Chasing Border Crossers," Commentary, April 29: Attorney Claudia E. Smith has it wrong about who poses a threat to human life. Twenty or more people in a pickup truck are a threat to human life--with or without any chase. The criminals are the smugglers and the illegal immigrants--not the Border Patrol. To characterize illegals as "men who just want to earn a living" and "women and children who just want to reunite with husbands and fathers" is presumption. They wouldn't need to reunite if the husbands and fathers stayed home in the first place.

A baby girl abandoned at a mid-city Los Angeles hospital over the weekend was expected to be reunited with her mother, police said Sunday. The 6-month-old's grandparents contacted police after seeing TV news reports of her arrival at Olympia Medical Center, police said. The girl appeared clean and well-cared for, and police do not suspect that the mother abandoned her. They expected to reunite the girl and her mother late Sunday or early today. California's safe-surrender law allows parents to turn over newborn infants to hospitals and fire stations without legal jeopardy, but only if the child is 3 days old or younger.
She was a popular teacher, known for working past midnight on school projects and being a compassionate ally to her students. He was one of the special ones: a sixth-grader with whom she had recognized a kindred spirit when he entered her class, talented and intense.

An Anaheim police K-9 handler has been reunited with his German shepherd partner, Bruno, after the dog was shot in the face last week by a suspect. Officer R.J. Young and his newborn daughter visited Bruno for 30 minutes at Yorba Regional Animal Hospital late Monday. Young had postponed seeing Bruno because of the dog's weak lungs and concerns that would be too excited during a visit. “The best part of my day was when I got to lay down with him for 10 [minutes],” Young said, in a statement posted on the Orange County Police Canine Assn.'s Facebook page . Bruno suffered a shattered jaw as a result of the bullet's impact, but the association said he was making substantial progress.

AUSTIN, Texas - Video images of fierce predatory animals flashed across several gigantic screens behind Jay Z and Kanye West at the Austin Music Hall on Wednesday night, a visual holdover from the rappers' collaborative tour in 2011 but also, it seemed, a kind of warning to the South by Southwest music festival they'd dropped in to dominate. Attract as many superstars as you like, the footage appeared to say - we'll devour them all. Once a forum for undiscovered regional talent, SXSW has become irresistible in recent years to A-list acts eager for a concentrated audience of gatekeepers and tastemakers.
