SHORTLY after Jeffrey "Toz" Toczylowski's last mission in Iraq a year ago this month, friends received a message. "If you are getting this e-mail, it means that I have passed away," the missive said. "No, it's not a sick Toz joke, but a letter I wanted to write in case this happened." The Army Special Forces captain, 30, said he would like family and friends to attend his burial at Arlington National Cemetery, "but understand if you can't make it."

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) delivered a full-throated defense of gun ownership Friday, telling a National Rifle Assn. audience that firearms are central to achieving the American Dream. The dream, Rubio said, is not just a measure of financial prosperity but the ability to raise a family in a home that is stable, safe and secure. That, in turn, rests on the ability to possess a firearm for self-protection, the lawmaker said. “The safety of our families is not something people should hope government can provide,” Rubio told delegates to the NRA's annual convention, held this year in Indianapolis.

Doctors recently discovered the mass in the film star's throat, his representative said. A full recovery is expected. "I am very optimistic," Douglas said in a statement. It's been a tumultuous year for the actor, whose son Cameron was sentenced in May to five years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of heroin and distribution of crystal meth.

McRoberts hit James in the throat with his forearm as the power forward drove to the basket with 50 seconds left in the fourth quarter as Miami led Charlotte, 97-94.

If you'd like to see some men getting naked to defend the Constitution, “The Deep Throat Sex Scandal,” now at the Zephyr Theatre, is just the ticket. Equal parts parody, courtroom drama and R-rated pep rally, David Bertolino's '70s docu-romp ends up playing as less than the sum of its parts. Which, just to be clear, are full frontal. The story of how a $25,000 porn film became a multimillion-dollar box office hit and a culture watershed has been repeatedly told in recent years: There's the terrific documentary “Inside Deep Throat,” the underappreciated “Lovelace: The Rock Opera” by the Go-Go's Charlotte Caffey and the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic with Amanda Seyfried.

Enjoyed Lawrence Chua's review of "The Queen's Throat." Not the leanest prose I've read, though. I once heard Arthur Ferrante and Louis Teicher do Debussy's "Clair de Lune" on two nine-foot grands: two men chasing a butterfly with sledge hammers. FRED SCIFERS DOWNEY

A man trying to bench-press 295 pounds died after dropping the barbell on his throat, authorities said Monday. Richard Craig English, a 28-year-old house painter from Vancouver, died Friday at a hospital in this British Columbian city. He was working out alone at a health club and had previously refused offers to use "spotters" to monitor his lifting, Sgt. Doug Bond said. When a club staff member discovered English, "the barbell was across his throat and he was blue," Bond said Monday.

The reward in the case of a brown pelican whose throat was slashed through its pouch swelled to $7,500 in a few hours Wednesday. The sum rose another $2,500 thanks to the "generous support of individual donors," said Andrew Harmon, a spokesman for International Bird Rescue, the organization overseeing the pelican's care in San Pedro. Harmon would identify the donors only as two women from the Los Angeles area. The organization earlier Wednesday had announced a $5,000 reward for any leads in the case.

A bird rescue organization is offering a $2,500 reward for information that could lead to the arrest of whoever was responsible for slashing a brown pelican's throat pouch, leaving it weak and malnourished. Long Beach Animal Care Services reportedly found the California brown pelican on Wednesday along Ocean Boulveard on the Alamitos Peninsula near Bayshore Park. With its pouch slashed open, the bird likely hadn't eaten for days, said Jay Holcomb of International Bird Rescue, which is treating the bird.

TEHRAN -- The Iranian capital has long been known for its smog, but pollution in recent days has taken an eye-watering turn for the worse, hampering visibility and causing authorities to shutter schools and curtail the number of cars allowed in the city center. Children and the elderly have been told to stay indoors if possible, and the smog has forced even healthy residents to cut back on strolls and jogs. On Wednesday, only cars with license plates ending in even numbers were permitted on downtown streets.

We had a house guest last week, a feisty 83-year-old who drives about the country every year visiting old friends and dispensing wisdom. The wisdom is usually couched in anecdotes full of heroes, villains and unsoftened opinion. He has decided--and he's probably right--that if you achieve 83, it is no longer necessary to carefully balance opinion in the interest of evenhandedness. He knows what he knows, and he believes what he believes.

She clicks to an old video of her son giving an interview. He is Stafon Johnson, a USC running back, speaking to a television reporter after scoring the first two touchdowns of his career. "He's stuttering, he's searching for the right words," she says. "He sounds just beautiful."

Developing wearable tech devices is all the rage these days. Think Google Glass eyewear, Samsung's smartwatch. Now comes an idea that may beat them all. Motorola, the Google-owned phone maker, has applied for a patent for a technology that would allow users to have microphones embedded in their throats. The mic tattoos would connect with users' mobile devices wirelessly, and, by being positioned close to a user's larynx, could pick up clearer audio than the regular microphones that we use today, Motorola says.
