Sue Monk Kidd writes that her first encounter with Sarah and Angelina Grimké came during an exhibition of Judy Chicago's artwork "The Dinner Party" in 2007. The sisters are included in a list of 999 important women in history and mythology, their names inscribed on the "Heritage Floor" of the installation. Kidd, author of "The Secret Life of Bees" and "The Mermaid Chair," writes that she was startled to discover the sisters were from Charleston, S.C., her home at the time. The Grimkés, she learned, were abolitionists and "among the earliest major American feminist thinkers.

WASHINGTON - California's egg law survived a congressional effort to scramble it as key lawmakers from both parties announced an agreement Monday on a multiyear farm bill. That means beginning next year, all eggs sold in California will have been laid by hens that had plenty of room to flap their wings. The compromise farm bill, which could come up for a House vote Wednesday, would avert deep cuts sought by Republicans in the federal food stamp program and end direct payments to farmers - a controversial provision under the previous farm bill in which farmers received federal subsidies regardless of their output.

WASHINGTON -- California's egg law has survived an effort in Congress to scramble it. This means that beginning next year, all eggs sold in California will have been laid by hens that had plenty of room to flap their wings. Although it seems like a big win for hens, the debate in Congress really focused on states' rights. Congressional negotiators rejected an effort, led by an Iowa representative, to prevent California from requiring that eggs sold in the Golden State be produced under standards that give hens enough room to spread their wings.  Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa)

DETROIT - Tomas Tatar scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Kings in a game that shouldn't have gotten past regulation. Jeff Carter had given the Kings a 2-1 lead with 2:15 left in the third period on a power-play goal. However, a bizarre goal on a play that's not reviewable allowed the Red Wings to tie the score with 26.1 seconds left in the third. Niklas Kronwall's shot deflected high in the air and hit the protective netting behind the goal and above the glass before hitting Jonathan Quick in the back and going into the net. Play should have been stopped when the puck hit the netting, but the four officials apparently didn't see what had happened.

DETROIT -- Greetings from Detroit, where it's snowing lightly. The Kings' morning skate at Joe Louis Arena was optional, but it appeared that their lineup Saturday against the Red Wings will be the same as it was in their 4-1 victory over St. Louis on Thursday. Forwards Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey remained on the ice with goaltender Martin Jones for extra work, a sign they'll be scratched. Coach Darryl Sutter left the arena without speaking to the media. It was a jolt to walk into the Red Wings' locker room and see many unfamiliar names affixed to the stalls.

DETROIT - Kings defenseman Drew Doughty raised his right arm automatically to indicate that a shot by Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall had bounced off the protective netting above the glass before it hit goaltender Jonathan Quick's back and dropped into the net with 26.1 seconds left in the third period Saturday. Doughty's posture was almost casual. The Kings were protecting a one-goal lead in the final minute, but he expected the referee to blow the whistle for the stoppage that's supposed to result when the puck hits the netting and negate the apparent goal.

It didn't make up for their disappointment over losing Game 7 of their first-round playoff series to Detroit at the Honda Center last spring, but the Ducks had many reasons to be pleased Sunday with their 1-0 home victory over the Red Wings. In winning their seventh straight game and 17th in the past 18, the Ducks remained the only NHL team that hasn't lost in regulation at home this season, at 19-0-2. They also increased their league-leading point total to 75. They're only the fifth team since the 1973-74 season to record points in each of their first 21 home games.

Not once since the Ducks distanced themselves from the Western Conference pack had goaltender Jonas Hiller recorded a shutout, but their plentiful production meant he never had to blank an opponent to be sure of a win. Sunday night, with their legs tiring in their third game in four days, the Ducks needed him to get a shutout. And he did. Hiller stopped 22 shots and Andrew Cogliano scored off a slick setup from Saku Koivu in the second period as the Ducks defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 1-0, at Honda Center to extend their winning streak to seven and long-term dominance to 17-1.

One bad line change, one well-placed rebound and one opportunistic, hard-charging forward. That was the game-changing play between the Kings and the Red Wings on Saturday night at Staples Center. Tomas Tatar of Slovakia scored the game-winner in the third period with 7 minutes 54 seconds to play, giving the injury-depleted Red Wings a 3-1 victory over the Kings. The breakdown came even before Kings goalie Jonathan Quick kicked the rebound of a Riley Sheahan shot right onto the stick of the on-rushing Tatar.

Is Justin Timberlake back? OK, so the superstar singer-actor hasn't exactly been away lately; indeed, it might be Timberlake's overexposure this year that led the Recording Academy to snub "The 20/20 Experience" in the recently announced nominations for the upcoming Grammy Awards. (Then again, with the Recording Academy, general cluelessness is always a reliable bet.) Yet Timberlake has spent much of the past few months in celebrity mode as opposed to musician mode. Even headlining Staples Center just before Thanksgiving, he seemed more like a Hollywood king holding court than like a dude playing songs.
