Microsoft Corp. is going back in time to promote its new Windows 7 operating system. Taking its inspiration from Texaco Star Theater, a Milton Berle-hosted 1950s variety show that was television's first big hit, the computer giant is teaming with "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane to sponsor a 30-minute show to air on the Fox network next month. The show will run without commercials, and promises to feature "unique Windows 7-branded programming that blends seamlessly with show content."

For us L.A. old-timers, there's something odd about the first days of summer this year. The air is clear. Unnaturally clear. One day this week, standing in front of my home in Mount Washington just north of downtown, I could actually see the faint outline of Catalina Island 52 miles away. But soon, very soon, Catalina will disappear. So will Mt. Baldy. Even the nearby San Gabriels will be lost to me in that notorious khaki-colored haze that descends upon our city in July and August.

The apartment building at 2602 Broadway in Santa Monica doesn't scream "affordable housing. " Rather, its proportions and details are more like that of the neighboring 1960s buildings, and that's because 2602 Broadway takes a cue from those iconic structures, architect Kevin Daly said. "What we've done is take the typical L.A. dingbat, which I would characterize as a four-sided doughnut of a building, and break it apart and move toward the extreme edge of the property," Daly said.

The grandfather clock in the vestibule of the Douglass Family Mortuary in Lynwood is silent. The key misplaced, the mainspring unwound, its hands lie motionless at 6:38. Martha CastaƱeda has long stopped listening for it. In the company of the dead, she is happy to lose track of time just as she has this Saturday morning standing beside Juan Antonio Reyes Villatoro, who lies in the ivory crepe of his silver-finished casket. She studies his face, the pursed lips and the trimmed goatee.

Two tornadoes shredded part of this West Texas city early Saturday before alarms could be sounded, killing at least one person, injuring more than 90 others and destroying hundreds of homes. "There's debris everywhere. The windows are out, buildings are torn down, houses have some of the roofs off them," Nolan County Sheriff James Blackley said.
