Moy is dean and provost of Southern Illinois University in Springfield, Ill., which is tied with East Carolina University as the national leader in turning out general doctors. According to a ranking by the Assn. of American Medical Colleges, both schools send 54% of their students into primary care training programs.

July 22, 1990 | JOHN JOHNSON and RONALD L. SOBLE, John Johnson and Ronald L. Soble, Times staff writers, are working on a book about the Menendez case for New American Library.
ON A MILD SUNDAY last summer, a string of "popping sounds" drifted through the lazy night air of Beverly Hills around 10 o'clock. "I didn't think anything of it," said Tom Zlotow, a neighbor who soon learned that the noises he'd heard from the house right behind his were echoes of the most sensational crime in the history of Beverly Hills. "I didn't even think it could be gunfire, especially around here."

For better or worse, it's been labeled "language-centered" writing, though that tendency, which various poets and creative verbalists share today, might be better understood if we called it "writing-centered." An attitude toward constructing writing is what unites the current practitioners, and that descends from certain modernist grandparents, the Russian Formalists, an active movement of literary critics between 1915 and 1930.

A jury Wednesday spared the lives of Lyle and Erik Menendez, who shotgunned their millionaire parents to death in Beverly Hills in 1989 and now will spend the rest of their days in state prison with no hope of parole. As the verdicts were read in the tension-filled Van Nuys courtroom, a wave of relief seemed to sweep over the brothers and their defense attorneys when they realized that the jury had rejected the death penalty. The defense lawyers reacted with grins, tears and hugs.

November 3, 1996 | Mollie Gregory, Mollie Gregory is the author of "Equal to Princes," a novel about the effects of the Hollywood blacklist on two generations of a single family
Half of this memoir is about getting into trouble and the other half is about trying to get out of trouble. The "trouble" is the period of the infamous and destructive Hollywood blacklist that, after half a century, still incites passionate debate. It seems incredible now, but in the 1940s and 1950s, a hurricane of fear, suspicion and retribution swept this country as congressional committees hauled citizens into hearings and demanded that they account for their political beliefs.

For anyone who's ever tried to decipher a doctor's scribbled prescription, the idea of medical students putting together a magazine to showcase their writing might tickle a funny bone. But that's exactly what the doctors in training are doing at Southern Illinois University's medical school. For three years, students have explored the poetic possibilities of such things as left-sided hemiparesis in their annual literary magazine, Scope.

It's been a long day. All you want is a quick shot, a slow beer, and a good book. And a blonde. Or brunette. With long legs. Instead, there's no booze because you've just remembered that you're on the wagon, and the blonde is your wife, which is OK because she has long legs. As for the book, you look at the title, "Casing a Promised Land," and ask yourself, "What is this bozo up to?" The words organizational and ethnographer catch your attention.

Thomas Monaghan is a postmodern American entrepreneur. Where the old-style capitalist built railroads, made steel and dug for oil, the contemporary type produces nothing durable. Ray Kroc's McDonald's is the best-known of the postwar fortunes made from the new service economy. Fast food is more profitable than steel and a lot cheaper to produce. Monaghan's Domino's Pizza business grew from one store in Ypsilanti, Mich., run by him and his brother in 1960 , to a vast pizza empire.

Afew years ago, Kay Boyle showed me a caricature she had made of herself at the request of a journalist. What I saw was a long, slender female body gliding through the air, one elongated arm aimed straight ahead, the other straight behind, and resting in the palm of each hand, I saw what were unmistakably outsized bombs, their wicks short and smoldering, ready for dropping. Above this aeroballistic figure hovered a halo. The caption (by the author qua artist) read: "Since receiving several volumes of censored data through the Freedom of Information Act, I see myself as a dangerous 'radical' (they themselves put it in quotes)
