I want to find a house I have never lived in on a beach not frequently visited. I want a wave that never crested before, I want a door entered only by people who dont understand me and I dont understand. The wallpaper should be green and the fireplace burn coal. The women on sofas cross their legs at the angle and go in summer to mountain relatives.

CAMP PENDLETON - After writing scores of condolence letters, Marine Gen. John Kelly thought he knew something about the pain of having a son killed during war. Then his own son was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2010 and Kelly found the pain more scorching and paralyzing than he had ever imagined. But it also gave him an unbreakable bond with other family members of the fallen. And so on Thursday, near the end of his speech at the unveiling of a memorial to 89 Marines and sailors from the 5th Marine Regiment killed in Afghanistan, Kelly made a personal offer of regret to the Gold Star family members in attendance - regret from someone who has suffered the same loss.

Detectives illegally seized photographs allegedly showing R&B singer R. Kelly having sex with an underage girl, and prosecutors cannot use them to try him on child pornography charges, a judge in Bartow, Fla., ruled Thursday. Circuit Judge Dennis Maloney agreed with Kelly's lawyers that Polk County sheriff's detectives did not have enough evidence to justify a search of Kelly's Davenport home when they asked a judge for a warrant in 2002.

A Cook County jury Friday acquitted R&B superstar R. Kelly of child pornography charges, ending a high-profile case that began more than six years ago. Jurors said they put little stock in the prosecution's star witness, a woman who claimed she participated in videotaped sex acts with Kelly and a person the government alleged was Kelly's then-underage goddaughter.

As troubled R&B singer R. Kelly made his first court appearance Thursday in relation to child pornography charges, radio stations around the country grappled with whether to continue playing the popular artist's music. Appearing in a Polk County, Fla., courthouse near his home, where he was arrested Wednesday, Kelly, 34, listened as the judge set bail at $750,000 and forbade him to have contact with minors unrelated to him. Kelly later posted bond and was freed.

CHICAGO -- Sex scandals have derailed countless pop-star careers, but R. Kelly's has remained robust, even with his long-delayed trial on 14 counts of child pornography looming. Jury selection began Friday. The singer, 41, has sold more than 12 million records and videos since the charges first surfaced in June 2002. Last year he scored three top-10 R&B singles, and his 2007 album, "Double Up," sold nearly a million copies despite an industry-wide economic slump.

The voice on the other end of the phone was tiny and wounded, nothing like the supple tenor that made R. Kelly the most popular R&B singer of his generation. He said he was sitting in front of a television watching Mike Tyson's boxing career descend to a bloody, pitiful low, but it was a feeble distraction from his own battles against prosecutors and public opinion.
