A state judge has spared a Westport home, designed by renowned architect Paul Rudolph, from demolition -- for now. The 4,200-square-foot stucco house, designed by Rudolph in 1972, is an elongated series of interconnecting cubes with cantilevered panels that hang above large windows. Rudolph, who died in 1997, was dean of the Yale School of Architecture in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

"It would be interesting, if not useful, to consider where one would go in Los Angeles to have an effective revolution. . . . If one took over some public square, some urban open space, who would know? A march on City Hall would be inconclusive. . . . The only hope would seem to be to take over the freeways."--Charles W. Moore, late dean of the Yale School of Architecture

Several months ago I went to the emergency room for a respiratory problem. I was treated and released the same night. I was a self-pay patient. I requested the detailed billing to compare with my medical record and found several errors, including duplicated charges and overcharged items. When I discussed this with the billing department they refused to admit it. What is my next step in this situation? It's critical that you put your dispute with the hospital in writing, clarifying that your itemized bill contains items or services that have been billed in error, says Pat Palmer, founder of Medical Billing Advocates of America, a consumer advocacy group in Roanoke, Va. List each item you're disputing and request that the inaccurate charges be removed or that a written response with documentation to support the charges be sent to you. If you've hit a brick wall with the billing department, escalate your complaint, says Martin Rosen, an executive vice president of Health Advocate, a patient advocacy organization based in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Address your letter to either the chief financial officer or chief executive officer of the hospital, or both, and indicate that you've tried and failed to settle the matter with the billing department.

Well before the national gay-rights movement sprang from the Stonewall riots, West Hollywood Presbyterian Church started Los Angeles' first gay men's rap group. The year was 1965. The congregation launched the Lazarus Project in 1977, sending gay men and lesbians into Presbyterian churches across the country to share their stories of faith and family at a time when the denomination was poised to declare that "homosexuality was not God's wish. " The small church just off the Sunset Strip was the faith's first to hire an openly gay pastor — 27 years before the Presbyterian Constitution allowed homosexuals to be ordained.
