Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke publicly for the first time Monday about the breakup of his 20-year marriage, saying he was responsible for the split even as he refused to talk about what caused it. In a somber meeting with reporters at City Hall, Villaraigosa declined to answer questions about whether the break with his wife, Corina, was triggered by another romantic relationship.

Dear Donald Sterling: Tell me when and where, and I'll come by for a chat. If the racist comments attributed to you by TMZ were actually made by someone else, here's your chance to clear the record. If your voice is the one we hear on the tape, but it's been edited misleadingly or there's some context for the comments that you'd like to explain, here's your chance. And if indeed that's you and it's really the way you think, might as well come clean now or this is going to drag on interminably.

YANJI, China - After the North Korean coal mine where she worked stopped paying salaries, Park Kyung Ok tried her hand at business. Buttons and zippers, candy and dried squid, fabric, plastic tarpaulins, men's suits and cigarettes. "I sold just about everything," said Park, 44. But it wasn't until she started hawking methamphetamine in 2007, she said, that she was able to earn a living. Methamphetamine, known as orum, or "ice," is a rare commodity manufactured and sold in North Korea, where most factories sit idle, the equipment rusted or looted.

An albino variety of California kingsnake popular in the pet trade has infested the Canary Islands, decimating native bird, mammal and lizard species that have had no time to evolve evasive patterns in what was once a stable ecology northwest of Africa. Unchecked by natural predators, the kingsnake population has exploded, say U.S. Geological Survey biologists helping the Spanish archipelago attempt to control the highly adaptive and secretive predators. "The kingsnakes in question are from a species found in San Diego and bred in captivity," said Robert Fisher, a research biologist with the USGS.

Scott Sterling, the 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, died as a result of a pulmonary embolism and  "narcotic medication intake" in what Los Angeles County coroner's officials classified as an accidental death, authorities said Monday. Sterling was found dead in his apartment on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on New Year's night. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials quickly determined his death did not involve foul play but appeared to involve some type of drug overdose.

There are frequent fliers, and then there are people like Steven Rothstein and Jacques Vroom. Both men bought tickets that gave them unlimited first-class travel for life on American Airlines. It was almost like owning a fleet of private jets. Passes in hand, Rothstein and Vroom flew for business. They flew for pleasure. They flew just because they liked being on planes. They bypassed long lines, booked backup itineraries in case the weather turned, and never worried about cancellation fees.

We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

When Susan had breast cancer, we heard a lot of lame remarks, but our favorite came from one of Susan's colleagues. She wanted, she needed, to visit Susan after the surgery, but Susan didn't feel like having visitors, and she said so. Her colleague's response? "This isn't just about you. " "It's not?" Susan wondered. "My breast cancer is not about me? It's about you?" The same theme came up again when our friend Katie had a brain aneurysm. She was in intensive care for a long time and finally got out and into a step-down unit.

Some 50 political leaders from nine Western states gathered in Salt Lake City this month to discuss plans to wrest control of millions of acres of public lands from the federal government. One wonders whether, like a dog chasing a car, they've figured out what they would do with the land if they got hold of it? In any case, that's unlikely to happen, based on decades of court battles and settled law. Nevertheless, these angry legislators and local commissioners seem determined to waste time and energy on this futile effort, propelled by a warped sense of history and priorities.

On the biggest political stage of the election season in California, the 17 candidates competing to succeed Rep. Henry Waxman struggled to stand out Sunday at a forum that was long on issues and short on time. Some common priorities emerged among those hoping to occupy the seat that Waxman, a Beverly Hills Democrat, is giving up after four decades: traffic woes and public transportation needs, ways to improve public education and a desire to get special-interest money out of politics - espoused even by some with the biggest war chests.

OAKLAND - The Clippers seemed weighed down Sunday afternoon in Game 4 by all the controversy that has engulfed them. And even though it was not of their own making, but that of owner Donald Sterling, the Clippers were in the storm and tried to stay afloat. But they could not avoid their albatross and a hot Golden State team, dropping a 118-97 decision to the Warriors at Oracle Arena. BOX SCORE: Golden State Warriors 118, Clippers 97 Instead of talking about the best-of-seven first-round series being tied at 2-2 or about regaining home-court advantage with their Game 3 win, the Clippers had to talk about Sterling's alleged racist comments about African Americans.

His is a name that has appeared in this publication's pages hundreds of times - as an author and as a subject. It's a name that calls up notions of the Latino struggle for civil rights and the radical Chicano movement in Los Angeles. It's also a name that initially made filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez groan when someone suggested the life behind the name as a subject for his next documentary. The legacy of former Los Angeles Times reporter and columnist Ruben Salazar has reached folklore heights since the journalist's suspicious death in 1970 at age 42. And therein lies Rodriguez's point of contention.

It's time to retire Donald Sterling. Let the real estate magnate and Clippers owner take his millions and buy a hockey team. Then he won't have to worry about black superstars showing up for games on his girlfriend's arm. That's what seemed to set him off in what is alleged to be a recorded argument with his girlfriend, who had posted a picture of herself with Magic Johnson on her Instagram account. “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people,” the man on the recording said.

Manti Te'o gave the 40-yard dash another try after clocking a less-than-impressive time of 4.82 at the NFL combine. At Notre Dame's pro day Tuesday, Te'o ran the sprint in 4.69 seconds, according to Notre Dame's unofficial clock. That means Te'o shaved off about one-tenth of a second from his initial time. It might not be a drastic improvement, but it's definitely a step in the right direction.  "I felt good. I'm at home now," Te'o told reporters. "I was very pleased with how I performed.

Ever since I started working with Raja Abdulrahim on her Syria stories two years ago, I've listened to Radiohead while editing them. It didn't start out as a running soundtrack to a writer and the conflict she still covers, but Radiohead's music has that combination of sorrow and alienation and dread and vulnerability that runs through the Syria conflict. I remember choosing “Talk Show Host” for the first story. (Warning: There's a bit of Anglo-Saxon language.) Its line about “I'll be waiting with a gun and a pack of sandwiches” seemed to echo the story's juxtaposition of violence and everyday life.

The U.S. has played in nine World Cups, winning seven games, or the same number that Brazil won in 2002 alone, when it rolled to a record fifth title. But if the U.S. has struggled collectively on soccer's biggest stage, several players have stood out individually since Massachusetts' Bert Patenaude scored the first hat trick in tournament history in 1930. Here's one person's pick for the all-time U.S. World Cup team: Goalkeeper Brad Friedel (1994-2002): Only Tony Meola, with seven, has started more games in goal than Friedel.
