Three days of meetings with top North Korean officials served as "exploratory talks" on how to restart stalled six-party negotiations on nuclear weapons, the first Obama administration envoy to visit Pyongyang said Thursday. Special envoy Stephen Bosworth told reporters here that he had not seen North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, nor had he requested a meeting. U.S. officials had hoped to gain a promise from the communist regime to resume the nuclear disarmament talks, which it abandoned in 2006 when it conducted a nuclear test.

On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert stopped by "Late Show" to say hello to David Letterman, whom he will be replacing next year. On Wednesday, Colbert returned to "The Daily Show" to tell Jon Stewart how he had "won television. " Colbert got his start as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" from 1997 until 2005 when he left to host his own show, "The Colbert Report. " But on Wednesday, Colbert had to break the news to Stewart that he was ending his show, which airs immediately after "The Daily Show," to go to CBS. Stewart already knew this, but it didn't stop Colbert from breaking the news to him again.

Samuel L. Jackson has incarnated some colorful, fast-talking characters in Quentin Tarantino movies over the years, such as his scripture-quoting hit man Jules Winnfield in "Pulp Fiction" and scheming gun runner Ordell Robbie in "Jackie Brown. " Jackson takes on perhaps his most morally slippery Tarantino role yet in the violent dark comedy "Django Unchained. " As house slave Stephen, Jackson plays a conniving opportunist to Leonardo DiCaprio's unctuously evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (overseer of "Candieland")

OAKLAND -- At some point, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers told his players repeatedly this season, they were going to have to win a playoff game on the road. That time came Thursday night for the Clippers in Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. The Clippers made that stand behind another monster game from Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan's strong all-round effort and a tremendous three-point defensive performance that pushed them to a thrilling 98-96 victory over the Warriors.

Stephen says there's a new mail carrier in his neighborhood, and she's fond of chatting on her cellphone. In fact, she spends so much time yakking away, Stephen says, she sometimes delivers mail to the wrong house. She also frequently uses the F-word, much to the consternation of parents in the neighborhood. ASK LAZ: Smart answers to consumer questions Stephen is curious: What's the U.S. Postal Service's policy when it comes to cellphones? I know how he feels.

Salvia divinorum ought to at least have an accurate warning label [“Salvia: The Legal Herb,” April 28]. I would also favor an additional tax on it to help discourage heavy consumption and also to help the public police the enforcement of its sales (provided it becomes law that a person needs to be 18 or over to buy it).

It's easy to sit home and take potshots at a public figure like Jerry Lewis (Letters, March 5 and 12). You may not like him as an entertainer. And you may disapprove of aspects of his personal life. But few others have brought smiles and laughter to as many children and adults as Mr. Lewis, and dedicated as much time and effort to a charitable cause, as has Mr. Lewis. If he is a "World Class Egomaniac," as reader Douglas McEwan claims, it's OK with me--he's earned the right. H. STEPHEN DEMPSEY Thousand Oaks

Stephen Gaghan, the Oscar writing screenwriter, and his wife, fashion designer Minnie Mortimer, have put their Brentwood home up for sale at $4.995 million. Set behind gates and stone columns, the shingle-clad house looks like it could be set in Nantucket. The 5,267 square feet of living space features wood-beam ceilings, a painted wood-paneled den/library, a corner sunroom,  a media room, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There's a balcony off the master suite. A covered brick patio extends the length of the back of the house and connects to the balcony area above by an exterior stairwell.

Chris Paul stood before the assembled media Wednesday in his Clippers practice gear, a black brace loosely hanging from his lower right leg. After answering several questions about his right hamstring injury and how the Clippers were ready to play the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the playoffs Thursday in Oakland, Paul eased his way to a training table and sat. Paul didn't practice for the second straight day. In fact, Clippers Coach Doc...

The passing of the "Late Show" torch has officially begun. On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert paid his first visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater following the news that he will be taking over for David Letterman next year.  To answer your first question: No, Colbert was not in character, as evidenced by the stylish black glasses he wore, rather than the conservative wire-rim frames his blustery character prefers and, of course, by his modest and affable...

Stephen Curry isn't one to snap at referees. Technical fouls aren't his thing. But his shot hadn't been falling, his team was getting crushed by the Clippers and, yeah, he was angry. So he picked up his first technical foul this season after yelling at a non-call, thinking he was fouled by Chris Paul and/or Blake Griffin on a layup in the Clippers' 138-98 dismantling of the Golden State Warriors. Strange game for Curry, an All-Star who pretty much disappeared as the Clippers took a 26-point halftime lead Monday.

The announcements have been made and the pundits have commented. Now it's time for America to witness the first public meeting between Stephen Colbert and David Letterman since the announcement was made that Colbert would be taking over CBS' late-night slot sometime next year. Colbert has appeared on Letterman's show 12 times since the premiere of his Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," in 2005. But when he sits down on "Late Show" next Tuesday, he'll be there kicking the tires and seeing how the audience treats him. Face-to-face with the man who will one day take over his job, will Letterman suddenly have second thoughts and renounce his retirement plans?

Papa Bear is angry that his acolyte is leaving, it seems.  On Monday night's edition of "The O'Reilly Factor," a reader wrote in to host Bill O'Reilly commenting on CBS' choice of Stephen Colbert to take over late night from the retiring David Letterman. While Colbert's Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," is a deliberate parody of "The O'Reilly Factor" and Colbert refers to O'Reilly as Papa Bear on the air, the Fox News host seemed less than positive about Colbert's prospects in his new role.

Two teen-agers accused of randomly attacking a 9-year-old boy and fracturing his skull with a baseball bat denied they did it Tuesday at a hearing where the boy's family was shaken to learn they had shared supper with one of the suspects. The two teens, identified at the Juvenile Court hearing only as Stephen, 17, and Christopher, 16, denied charges in connection with the attack last Wednesday on Joshua Garrett of San Diego. The hearing was similar to an arraignment in Municipal Court.

Until he met a puppet his own size who seemed to understand the pain and confusion of having divorced parents, a third-grader in a Pasadena school was so withdrawn that he couldn't talk. When he finally spoke, it was to the puppet. "My parents are divorced," he confided. "That was his breakthrough," puppeteer Jean Gunnell said. "He finally could say it. Some things bring tears to your eyes."

Re "Not a conservative pick," April 11 Steven Colbert is a super-smart comic actor. "Steven Colbert" is a character on TV. Neither would currently be famous without the other. Once one is gone, will the other be worth watching on the "Late Show"? Apparently Colbert and CBS are willing to bet his career on that question.
