Allergan Inc.'s promotions for the eyelash-growing drug Latisse are "misleading" because they don't describe safety risks, regulators said. The Food and Drug Administration cited the website www.latisse.com and a placard with a timeline of the product's introduction in a warning letter to the Irvine company. Allergan says the timeline is no longer being used. Materials promoting a drug's benefits must also address its risks, which in this case include allergic reactions or hair growth outside the treatment area, the FDA said.

SAN FRANCISCO -- It's déjà vu all over again for Facebook privacy. Facebook says it's changing its privacy controls yet again to make them easier for users to understand. One of the new features: privacy shortcuts that pop up on the right-hand side at the top of News Feeds that answer questions such as “Who can see my stuff?” You can also block someone with one click. Facebook is also rolling out a feature that allows people to more easily hide or remove posts that appear on their Timeline.

Rather than concentrate on the execution of the crime, this week's DVDs focus on what comes afterward: first the trial, then, for the unlucky, time behind bars. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including best picture, 1959's “Anatomy of a Murder” is one of the great American courtroom dramas. Directed by Otto Preminger, it features Jimmy Stewart as a small-town lawyer defending Ben Gazzara against a murder charge brought by George C. Scott's hard-driving prosecutor. Archetypes don't get more archetypal than this, with a great Duke Ellington score thrown in for good measure.

The Dianne Klein column ("The End Does Not Justify the Fanatical Means of Terrorism," March 16), after building on the murder of Dr. Gunn, asks for governmental vigor in pursuit of pro-life fanatics as if they were murdering terrorists. Two significant issues come to mind: life and freedom of assembly. I'll comment on the life issue. What is life? When does life begin? When does life end? Courts have addressed life of a fetus with respect to the time from conception. So now, a legal system says what is life and what is not life: To the system, life depends on a particular spot on the gestation timeline.

Let's be honest, sometimes there's no better way to waste time on a Friday at work than on Facebook. And after stumbling upon the addictive new website "What Would I Say?," wasting time got even more fun. The website culls old Facebook activity and uses the information to predict a future status based on what you talk about and how you talk about it. The result: a sometimes funny, sometimes nonsensical status that is often uncannily accurate. "What Would I Say?" got even better when we discovered that users can generate statuses for Facebook pages belonging to celebrities or organizations.

WASHINGTON - A top Internal Revenue Service official knew as early as June 2011 that conservative groups seeking nonprofit status were being singled out for additional scrutiny, raising questions about when senior officials were informed and why the IRS allowed the agency's commissioner to deny the targeting effort in March 2012 testimony before Congress. The IRS has said the commissioner was not aware of the targeting at the time, but it has not explained why the testimony was never corrected.
