A few years ago I bought a cookbook titled "Kill It and Grill It" for my boyfriend, a Yale grad who hunted and fished. Admittedly, I offered the gift ironically. I'd been drawn to it by its cover photo of '70s rocker Ted Nugent and his wife, Shemane, each clad in a denim vest and clutching a rifle and knife, respectively. As a native of rural Michigan, I saw the image as both funny and dismaying. They kind of look like families I grew up with, I thought. But who buys a cookbook with a gun on it?

WASHINGTON - Seats at President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will be filled with the legislative priorities of a bitterly divided Congress.

The singer told an audience at a Singapore show last week that he believed President Obama secretly planned three recent shootings as a precedent to steal Americans' guns. "Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban," he said.

Record labels, rock stars and high-tech entrepreneurs are slated to testify Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on online entertainment and copyright law. Supporters of Napster Inc., the embattled song-swapping service, are expected to pack the hearing room to hear Chief Executive Hank Barry appeal for a legislative life preserver. But he'll be opposed by most of the other members of the panel, including rocker/bow hunter Ted Nugent and EMI Records Chairman Ken Berry.
