Two weeks ago, Lance Holger Anderson gave his Christmas tree to a neighbor, telling her "we're not having Christmas this year. " The neighbor thought nothing of it until Wednesday, when deputies swarmed the apartment complex. Authorities allege that Anderson killed his ailing wife at their Canyon Country apartment, then took a cab to a North Hills nursing facility, where he fatally shot his near-comatose sister. Anderson then dropped the gun and patiently waited for officers to arrive, police said.

A woman who authorities say was shot and killed by her brother Wednesday as she lay in a vegetative state in a North Hills convalescent home was identified as Lisa Nave, 58. Before the 60-year-old man killed his sister with a small-caliber handgun, he had killed his wife, who suffered from dementia, at their Canyon Country home, authorities said. Police described the fatal shooting of Lisa Nave as a "mercy killing. " “I use the term 'mercy killing' in terms of describing a killing here because I want people to understand that this man did not randomly walk into a hospital to commit this crime," said Lt. Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Some jobs - catching fastballs, singing pop songs, dancing en pointe - are a lot easier when you're young. Add to that list directing independent movies, where it's not the physical demands that wear out many filmmakers but the financial stresses.

Before Mary and Liz Cheney, there were Newt and Candace Gingrich. Starting in the '90s, the Gingrich siblings -- one a straight, conservative politician and the other a married, gay activist -- played out the same family drama over gay marriage that is now roiling the Cheney clan. “The struggle that the Cheney family is going through is one that lots and lots of families go through when it comes to LGBT family members,” Candace Gingrich told me Monday from her home in Hyattsville, Md. “I feel for them, because it's magnified about 8,000 times, but the bottom line is that one sister does not accept the basic right of her other sister.
