Part I of your post-riot series, "Separate Lives" (Nov. 16), was a comprehensive report of people tearing our cities and nation apart. Rodney G. King's question, "Can we all get along?" while commendable and positive, will not continue to inspire present and new Americans. We need dynamite words that will unite all individuals living in our God-blessed country. I offer the words of Patrick Henry presented in a speech, Sept. 5, 1774--"I am not a Virginian, but an American." The words "I am an American" should be encouraged by the local and national media, churches, schools and organizations to erase epithets we let creep into our language that cause racial tensions and division of people who expect unity in the United States.

The man standing at Norman Johnson's door that cold January evening was a stranger who might have seemed vaguely familiar. Johnson, a retired high school instructor who taught English and coached tennis and football for 35 years in this unassuming town, probably didn't even have his door locked when he came to greet the bearded, gray-haired visitor. The man bluntly asked him, "Are you Norm Johnson?" When the 72-year-old Johnson didn't answer quickly enough, the man asked again.

The scandal surrounding the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales sharpened Sunday when a biographer of Princess Diana reported that the couple will lead separate lives but will not divorce. Andrew Morton, writing in the Sunday Express, said that Diana, in a "new separation agreement," will spend only enough time with Prince Charles, heir to the throne, to give her two sons "as normal an upbringing as possible."

Home is where not only the heart is these days — but also the elderly parents, the boomerang kids and the aging-in-place Boomer homeowners. To accommodate the new generations-stacked-upon-generations lifestyle spawned by one of the most severe economic downturns in decades, builder Lennar Corp. on Saturday will unveil a house with something few others on the block can boast about: another house. The company has built two San Bernardino County models of its so-called NextGen designs for its master-planned Rosena Ranch community.

No white gown for Li Rong on her wedding day. No veil either. A husband was there, but Li wasn't planning on connubial bliss. When Li, 35, a former captain in the People's Liberation Army and a rising star in the world of book design, decided to get married, she hustled down to the registry office with her fiance, signed her name and promptly went back to living alone. "Of course I love my husband," she said. "But we had a mutual agreement. Freedom was the priority."

How do we react to the presence of evil and injustice when, as an adult or a child, it intrudes on our world? It's easy enough to say "you fight it," but the reality is never that simple. When do we act, how far do we go, what price are we willing to pay? When, if ever, is retaliation legitimate? How do we deal, finally, with the pain and suffering of the world? The Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier has a potent gift for turning abstract, moral questions like these into edge-of-your-seat compelling dramas that examine, with devastating effect, the complex web of feelings that make us who we are. With "In A Better World," which deservedly won this year's best foreign language Oscar, she has outdone even herself.

Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson, the husband-and-wife team behind the hugely successful series "The Nanny," were once so joined at the hip that they compared themselves to one of TV's most beloved couples, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Like that iconic duo, Drescher and Jacobson had clearly defined roles: She was the foghorn-voiced comedian with an outrageous persona and a sparkling smile; he was the quieter creative force behind the scenes, helping to shape their brand of comedy.

They were the happy exceptions — high school sweethearts whose passionate romance led to a famously stable marriage in a capital perpetually rocked by tawdry scandals and sleazy affairs. But on Tuesday, less than a month after they marked their 40th wedding anniversary, former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, announced they were breaking up.

The Denver couple divorced after six years of marriage but have been forced to live together for months because they can't sell their place or afford to set up separate households in this slumping economy. Snyder gets the master bedroom, while Partridge gets a smaller one. Snyder watches TV at one end of the house, Partridge at the other.

When surgeons separated 4-year-old conjoined twins Kendra and Maliyah Herrin earlier this month, they completed the first surgery to separate twins with a single good kidney. (The girls also shared a single pair of legs, a pelvis and one liver.) The history of conjoined twins is full of firsts -- and these are accumulating ever more rapidly as growing numbers of doctors, families and twins themselves opt for separation.
