SAN FRANCISCO - John Walker Lindh, the Marin County man imprisoned for fighting with the Taliban, has won the right to have daily communal Muslim prayer in the U.S. prison unit where he is incarcerated. An Indiana judge, ruling in a lawsuit brought by Lindh, ordered a Terre Haute prison warden to end a ban on daily group prayer for Lindh and more than 40 other Muslim inmates. The judge said the ban violated a federal law that protects the religious rights of prison inmates. Lindh, who converted to Islam while living with his family in San Anselmo, is serving a 20-year prison sentence.

Bipartisanship may be dead in the 2012 election year, but a questionable call by replacement referees in the NFL has breathed new life into the corpse of political amity -- even in Wisconsin, recently the scene of a bitter battle over workers' collective bargaining rights. After the state's Green Bay Packers had a victory snatched from their outstretched mitts by an outrage-inducing call on Monday, the current governor and one of his erstwhile opponents in the fight over collective bargaining found common ground, agreeing that it was time for the NFL to end its labor morass and bring back the real umpires.

WASHINGTON -- Bipartisanship may not be in vogue this year, but there's still one thing that can bring political opponents together - a blown call in a "Monday Night Football" game. The NFL, which is relying on substitute referees while the league's officials sit out due to an ongoing labor dispute, has been criticized throughout the season after a series of controversial calls. But the situation reached a tipping point Monday, when Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings intercepted a pass in the end zone on the final play of the game - until he didn't.

Television series may be canceled quickly or run out of steam after several seasons, but the special ones never really die. They live on in our collective memories. And thanks to cable, the Internet and DVD, these vintage series are becoming more than just fond recollections.

The Walker Art Center, a modern art museum in Minneapolis, tested the boundaries of legitimate art at the first film festival dedicated to, well, online cat videos. The show included 70 videos of kitty high jinks over 60 minutes (take a moment to let that sink in). Included were the "Keyboard Cat" and "Very Angry Cat," which have racked up more than 100 million views on YouTube between them. A crowd of 10,000 people (and a few leashed cats) gathered Thursday night for the outdoor feline fest at the Walker, where the works of Frank Gehry and Joseph Cornell have been displayed.
