The British judge who has presided over Slobodan Milosevic's war crimes trial in The Hague for two years will resign for health reasons, the U.N. said, risking further delays in the ex-Yugoslav president's case. Richard May, 65, will leave the three-judge panel May 31 because of an unspecified condition. That timing coincides with the scheduled start of Milosevic's defense. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan will appoint May's successor.

It is odd how history often bequeaths to us iconic names bereft of personality. Helen Gahagan Douglas, once a paladin of California's progressive politics and a congressional stalwart of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, is such a name. To the extent she's now remembered at all, it's as the victim of Richard M. Nixon's notoriously dirty 1950 campaign for one of the state's U.S. Senate seats. Sally Denton's "The Pink Lady: The Many Lives of Helen Gahagan Douglas" does an admirable if sometimes needlessly breathless job of restoring flesh and sinew to a remarkable woman and political personality, who stands as a kind of archetype of today's engaged Hollywood celebrity.

When County-USC Medical Center instituted a new screening system for its emergency room three years ago, Dr. Richard May was one of the first physicians to volunteer for the often unpleasant assignment. His task--to decide which of the hundreds of sick people who walked through the hospital's door each day got immediate care, which could wait and which could be safely turned away.

British Judge Richard May, who wryly cut off Slobodan Milosevic's courtroom speechmaking and presided over hundreds of hearings at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal in The Hague, died Thursday in Britain after a short illness. He was 65. May resigned four months ago because of ill health, two years into the trial of the former Serbian leader. The case is the highest-profile prosecution of its kind since the trials of Nazi leaders after World War II.

Supporters of a controversial tobacco fund initiative were cheered Friday when a judge ruled that the county clerk can begin the process of putting the measure on the November ballot. "This is an appropriate next step," said Mark Barnhill, spokesman for Community Memorial Hospital, which wrote the initiative in an attempt to transfer control of $260 million in national tobacco settlement money from county coffers to seven area private hospitals.

The photographer was not trying to mess with Richard Roundtree, the Man Best Known as Shaft. Really. He was just trying to get the right shot, positioning the actor against a pillar outside the Walt Disney Studios so that a shadow would fall across his face. "You know, so we can get this shaft of light hitting your eyes just right," the photographer said. Roundtree and the cameraman realized the unintentional quip at the same moment.

A judge on Friday ordered a man accused of shooting three doctors and holding two women hostage at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center last month to stand trial on charges of attempted murder and false imprisonment. At the 40-minute preliminary hearing, Los Angeles Police Detective John Spreitzer testified that Damacio Torres, 40, told him after his arrest that he went to the hospital "to seek revenge upon the doctors."

Judges in The Hague gave Slobodan Milosevic three months to prepare his defense against charges he committed war crimes, sparking a protest from the former Yugoslav president, who had requested two years. Milosevic, who is charged with genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the Balkans in the 1990s, is expected to launch his defense at the U.N. war crimes tribunal in early 2004. Prosecutors are to end their case this year.

What is thought to be the only surviving copy of the original sound track for "Gone With the Wind" has been discovered at Turner Entertainment Co., which acquired MGM's film collection in 1986. The track, on 17 1/2-millimeter safety film, is being transferred to quarter-inch magnetic tape at a Burbank laboratory, and it might be used on a home video release of the David O. Selznick film to be made available this summer.
