On Sunday, Miley Cyrus became the latest in a long line of young women to take to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards with the express purpose of stirring up controversy. And so far, the media have obediently complied, clutching their pearls en masse over her raunchy but otherwise mediocre performance -- one that made Britney Spears' snake-dancing seem like high art by comparison. With "The View" in repeats this week, however, the predictable chorus of outrage has been lacking a few critical voices.

"The Newlywed Game" is renewing its TV vows. Episodes of the veteran game show that pits newly married couples against each other are being revived on Bounce TV, which is geared toward African Americans. The series, which first premiered on ABC in 1965, has been on and off the air on various networks and in syndication since its launch. These episodes were previously produced for the Game Show Network. But founding host Bob Eubanks, the personality most identified with the show, will not be along for the ride this go-round.

The minute I heard that the American wine writer Peter Liem was writing a sherry book, I made sure to get a copy as soon as it was published. Liem, who lives in Champagne, has teamed up with Jesús Barquín , a professor of criminallaw and Spanish wine writer, to write "Sherry, Manzanilla and Montilla," which has to be the definitive guide to sherry as it was and as it is now.   Because Barquín is a founder of Equipo Navazos , which collects and releases limited edition sherries, the two have divided up the writing work.

Sherry cocktails have come a long way from hot sack posset. A custardy Middle Ages concoction of sherry, milk and eggs, popular first in Britain and then the New World, sack posset eventually gave way to the likes of the 19th century Bamboo, a combination of sherry, dry vermouth and orange bitters invented by a German bartender in Yokohama, Japan, and introduced to the U.S. by William Boothby's book "World's Drinks." Then something (Prohibition, bad marketing, corporate consolidation, you name it)

Rita O'Farrell's “Pedestrian,” now at the Lounge Theatre, initially debuted at the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival.  There's still something palpably “fringey” about the play, which is certainly not of the stick-to-your-ribs school of theater. But, although O'Farrell doesn't quite manage to say anything particularly novel about the state of human relationships, her roughly hour-long play largely succeeds as a comical divertissement. The plot revolves around Dennis (Daniel Ball)

Three have been fired and 10 have quit. Nine have been promoted. Two have killed suspects while on duty. And one stands accused of falsifying evidence in a murder case. For most of the 44 Los Angeles Police Department officers labeled "problem officers" in the landmark 1991 Christopher Commission report, the past four years have been tumultuous. The commission said its intention was to illustrate, not define, what it called "the problem of excessive force in the LAPD."

It was a murder that prosecutors say was committed in a fit of rage and jealousy and then covered up for more than two decades. But on Friday, as she was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison for killing her ex-boyfriend's wife, former Los Angeles Police Det. Stephanie Lazarus masked any emotion, other than a glance and wave in the direction of her mother as she was led away in handcuffs. The sentencing brought to a close a case that garnered national attention for its sensational story line of a lovelorn cop killing a woman she viewed as a romantic rival and then harboring the dark secret for 23 years.

The world's largest natural products convention, a celebration of all things healthy and eco-friendly, was being held at the Anaheim Convention Center Saturday when F. Sherwood Rowland, 84, died at his home in Corona del Mar. It's not much of a stretch to say that Rowland, 84, helped spawn the industry that drew more than 60,000 people and 2,000 exhibitors. In 1973, the UC Irvine chemistry professor and a young researcher on his team, Mario Molina, discovered that manmade chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons destroyed the Earth's fragile and vital ozone layer.
