Seth Morgan is back at his old place of employment, a Bourbon Street strip joint that's as black as a hole in the universe, save the dingy neon galaxies of liquor signs and revolving disco lights. On a red tongue of a stage, just inches from the nearest patrons, a young woman in a G-string writhes in the undulating illumination. From the surrounding darkness, eyes are fixed on her body like suction cups. Morgan looks on matter-of-factly.

Last season at the Laguna Hills Invitational, Danny Lee of El Toro won the boys' Division I junior race by one second. Saturday, Lee gave himself a bit more breathing room, posting the fastest time of the day to win the boys' Division I senior cross-country race. "My strategy was to go out with the group, but my adrenaline got the best of me and I just took off," said Lee, who ran 15:03 on the three-mile course. "I was hurting by the two-mile mark, but I got a second wind and I felt better."

In adapting the economics bestseller "Freakonomics" into a documentary film, and in marketing it, producer Chad Troutwine hardly took a by-the-book approach. First, he brought together something of a dream team of contemporary documentary filmmakers, from the serious and high-minded to the entertainingly comedic, to tackle various chapters or ideas from the text by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. Then, to sell the movie, he and distributor Magnolia Pictures decided to release it first as a digital download and via video-on-demand before taking it to theaters.
