We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

It's just another nondescript building in an industrial park wedged between the freeway and train tracks in Laguna Niguel. A transmission place is next door. An auto body shop is across the driveway. Olympic training site? Not likely, unless demolition derby is the newest Olympic sport. But in the parking lot there is a sign posted outside the building: "Attention: Do Not Expose or Handle Firearms in the Parking Lot." The building houses an indoor shooting range. Bill Demarest, U.S.

Most film productions tend to spend a lot of time shooting a relatively narrow range of subject matter. "One Day on Earth" takes a slightly different approach. "Think globally, film locally" could be the motto for "Earth," a crowd-sourced film project originally founded to document a single 24-hour period with video snapshots from around the world. After holding three such events since 2010, the project's creators are now zooming in further with "Your Day. Your City. Your Future," a similar 24-hour collaboration that will take place across 11 American urban centers, including Los Angeles, and explore the issues and cultures poised to define cities over the next 20 years.

My column Tuesday on the courtroom tears of a gang member sentenced to 40 years in prison for a campus shooting resonated with readers - but not in the way I imagined it would. I considered the courtroom scene a cautionary message to other young men who glorify gangs and are enamored of guns: You could spend the rest of your life in prison over a stupid vendetta and a single violent act. But readers focused not just on the threat posed by hotheads with guns, but on the perceived injustice of such a long sentence for a young man who didn't kill anyone.

KABUL, Afghanistan - The fatal shooting of three Americans in a charity hospital Thursday punctuated a dismal new trend that has emerged in the waning months of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan: Just as many foreign civilians are being killed as troops. The brazen attack by a police officer at the CURE International hospital in Kabul, which serves 37,000 Afghans a year, shocked even this war-weary city and seemed likely to diminish the already dwindling population of foreigners working in the capital.

NEW YORK - As parents of young girls and as two of Hollywood's most prolific producers, Kathy Kennedy and Frank Marshall believed that "Columbine," journalist Dave Cullen's exhaustive investigation of the 1999 school massacre, contained compelling and often untold stories that needed to be shared with a larger audience. So when the book was published five years ago, the producers of "Lincoln" and "The Bourne Identity" purchased its rights, hoping to turn "Columbine" into a feature directed by "The Social Network's" David Fincher.
