Meyer Lansky is one of the gravitational centers of Zachary Lazar's new novel, "I Pity the Poor Immigrant" (Little, Brown and Company: 256 pp., $25). Not so much the dapper, "Boardwalk Empire"-era gangster as Lansky in 1972 in Israel, seeking to retire there under the country's Law of Return. It's hardly the most celebrated era in Lansky's life, but Lazar was going for something other than the obvious. "The initial idea of this book was to put Meyer Lansky in the same room as King David from the Bible," Lazar said via Skype from his home office in New Orleans.

 As if being 5-0 and ranked No. 1 in Southern California by The Times isn't impressive enough, St. John Bosco will get a little bit better on Friday night for its Trinity League opener against Santa Margarita with the availability of 6-foot-4, 305-pound junior offensive lineman Zachary Robertson. He has offers from USC and UCLA. He sat out the first five games of the season after transferring from Mayfair. Now he's eligible to join an offensive line that already features 350-pound Damien Mama.

The 21-year-old electro pop singer Sky Ferreira might be enjoying her "Night Time, My Time" a little too much. The singer was arrested Saturday in Saugerties, N.Y. , after a rough weekend with her boyfriend, Zachary Cole Smith of post-punks DIIV. The two face a bevy of charges ranging from heroin possession to driving with stolen license plates. As noted by Spin and Pitchfork , the police blotter of the local newspaper, the Daily Freeman , noted that Ferreira is facing " misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest," with the substance reported to be Ecstasy.

A "freakish series of events" led to honor student Zachary Champommier's death on a night in June 2010 - that much is clear, a federal judge said Wednesday. But whether the plainclothes drug enforcement officers who shot the 18-year-old after he drove into a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy in a Studio City parking lot were justified in doing so is a more complex matter. In a 43-page mixed verdict, U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald awarded $3 million to Champommier's parents - $2 million to his mother and $1 million to his father, Eric Feldman - but also determined that the authorities were not negligent in their actions.

There is a scene early in "Cutie and the Boxer" of 80-year-old Ushio Shinohara brushing his teeth - although attacking his teeth might be a better description. It's a small detail, but like many in Zachary Heinzerling's remarkable documentary debut, a carefully chosen one. The director wants us to understand Shinohara is a fierce man. The avant-garde artist is known for his "action" painting - boxing gloves are indeed involved. But as riveting as Shinohara is, the real artist the film is interested in is Noriko, Shinohara's wife of 40 years.
