By the end of the year, Panera will have opened two more cafes that look and feel just like any of chain's other branches. But at the new locations, customers will be able to pay whatever they want for the food - even nothing at all. At a time of high unemployment, when about one in every seven American households is known as “food insecure,” Panera is joining a small but growing group of restaurants serving meals that are literally priceless....

"Soul Kitchen" is a lively, easygoing farce filled with high-energy music and amusing complications. It sounds like the least likely film to be written and directed by Fatih Akin. Or does it? Akin, born in Germany of Turkish parents, is best known for way-serious films such as the devastating "Head-On" and the somber " The Edge of Heaven. " Though he'd written this film before those two, he admits in a director's statement that after their success, "I didn't find 'Soul Kitchen' important enough.

The Soul Kitchen, a quiet, jazzy alternative to the rock of Huntington Beach's Main Street, opened recently at the site of the former Surf Taco. The owner is Scott Cochran, whose Java Jungle just two blocks away has become one of the area's most popular coffeehouses. Cochran has hired Steve Hazelton as head chef at the Soul Kitchen. The two met during a brief and aborted stint Cochran did at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco.

To all the narrow-minded idiots who choose to constantly attack X, and on a more personal and cruel level, Exene herself: First of all, what does it matter if an X song has four chords or 10? Has musical sophistication and flashiness replaced pure power and emotion in importance? Second, X's lyrics are more intelligent and heartfelt than any of the unctuous product put out by Phil Collins, Madonna, Lionel Richie or any of the other safe, homogenized and wholly commercial acts that rule the airwaves these days.

In rock 'n' roll, as in George Romero movies, the dead don't stay dead. They come back, and they look and sound--or shake a hunka hunka burnin' love--like the dearly departed, but they aren't the same. They've turned into something spiritless and distinctly sinister. In the words of Jim Morrison: Cancel my subscription to the resurrection. Or, in the words of Stephen King: Sometimes dead is better. Elvis impersonators have been big business since even before his death, so with the graying of the baby boomers, it's only natural that the next step would be immortalizing the late, great rockers of the '60s.

With his funny, freewheeling new film, "Soul Kitchen," Fatih Akin discovered the truth behind the old aphorism that comedy is hard. He jumped to prominence on the international festival circuit with the films "Head-On" and "The Edge of Heaven," heavy-duty dramas that dealt imaginatively with the search for immigrant identity and evolving ideas of community and home, but Akin says "Soul Kitchen" was his toughest to make. "A comedy like 'Soul Kitchen' is really dependent on the rhythm of the film.

"The Doors." Elektra. There is so much fascination with Jim Morrison's tortured-poet-as-artist persona and the Doors' role as an experimental underground band that it's easy to overlook the fact that the group made some terrific, highly accessible tracks, including "Break on Through" and "Soul Kitchen" from this 1967 debut collection.

A Los Angeles food processing firm is recalling beef links because they may be contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Monday. Soul Brothers Kitchen Inc. voluntarily recalled about 900 pounds of its Soul Brothers Beef Mild Links, which were distributed to grocery stores in the Los Angeles area, the department said. All two-pound packages with "Sell by 121593" stamped on the label were recalled.

The teaming of Los Angeles bands Lions & Ghosts and Legal Reins might just represent the state of the art of so-called alternative guitar-based rock. That's not necessarily good. Both bands alluded to emotions, but without conviction, and often rocked convincingly, but without distinction. A prime illustration of what's wrong came midway through headlining L&G's set Thursday at the Whisky when singer Rick Parker announced that the band was going to do a song by another L.A. band.
