Members of our firm, for example, were directly responsible for preventing a number of inaccurate and potentially damaging stories about the county and its bankruptcy from being published, including several which could have had a devastating impact on the county's ability to restructure its portfolio.

Ken Macha has a new job: His old one. Out last week after three seasons managing the Oakland Athletics, he called General Manager Billy Beane one last time to say thanks -- and wound up Friday with a three-year deal to return. "I think both of us felt this would be best for himself, best for myself and best for the club," Macha said.

The cultural battle over advice maven Dr. Laura Schlessinger escalated Friday, with the radio personality bowing to pressure from the gay and lesbian community and apologizing for negative remarks she has made regarding homosexuality. Even as Schlessinger made that concession, however, two gay and lesbian groups announced they will protest outside Paramount Pictures in Hollywood over its plans to showcase the host in a new nationally syndicated television show.
