Two workmen were killed and two others were injured when a high-pressure pipe exploded on an offshore oil island in Long Beach. The three-inch nitrogen line, under 2,100 pounds of pressure, burst at a coupling on Island Freeman, close to shore inside the Long Beach-Los Angeles Harbor, Long Beach fire dispatcher John Lendstrom said. "When the pipe burst, it whipped around and hit the men nearby," he said. Steven Lowe, in his 20s, of Huntington Beach died at the scene.

A mother accused of binding her three daughters' hands with duct tape, sealing their noses and mouths and then suffocating them was charged with murder Wednesday. Attorneys for Megan Hogg, 25, who stood mute behind a glass wall in the Redwood City courtroom, asked for a week's delay in entering a plea. She could face the death penalty if convicted.

A mother used duct tape to suffocate her three little girls in their pajamas, then climbed into bed with them and took an overdose of prescription drugs, police said Tuesday. The woman, Megan K. Hogg, 25, was treated at a hospital, then booked for investigation of homicide and taken for a psychiatric evaluation. Hogg left two notes describing her actions, police said. "In 29 years, I've seen a lot of evil. Nothing like this," said Lt. Steven Lowe.

AIDS Awareness Week, which was kicked off Monday at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, received some unexpected assistance from Magic Johnson.

The Beat goes on in the desert A long-shuttered midcentury hotel in Desert Hot Springs has been refurbished and reopened as the Beat Hotel, a tribute to the late William S. Burroughs and other Beat generation artists and writers. Owner Steven Lowe, who said he worked with Burroughs on the author's "Cities of the Red Night" (1981) novel and other projects, has put 1940s to 1960s furnishings in the hotel, along with memorabilia.

Steven Lowe never needed to comb the swap meets or EBay to put together his treasure trove of William S. Burroughs-abilia. During the course of his on-and-off assistant/collaborator-ship with the "Naked Lunch" author, artist and notorious opiate addict from 1974 to Burroughs' death in 1997, Lowe acquired hundreds of artifacts that would make any "Junky" junkie jealous.

The 30th anniversary of Tibet's unsuccessful revolt against China--which has been marked by demonstrations, rioting and the imposition of martial law in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa--provides a topical backdrop for Steven Lowe's "Tibetan Inroads," opening Thursday at the Burbage Theatre in West Los Angeles. The love affair between a blacksmith and a landlord's wife is the emotional jumping-off point for the 1950s/'60s-set cultural study.

WASHINGTON - The California-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is known for progressive rulings that champion individual rights over government and corporations, but when it comes to show business, the "Hollywood Circuit" - as it has been dubbed - stands accused of routinely siding with the home-turf entertainment industry. Judges famously sided with film studios in the early 1980s when the studios sued Sony for infringing their copyrights by selling the Betamax video recorders.
