Gary Cooper was often cast as cowboys, such as in 1940's "The Westerner" and in his Oscar-winning turn in 1952's High Noon," or as stoic, earnest protagonists, such as a World War I hero in 1941's "Sergeant York. " But in real life, he was an erudite sophisticate who had an innate sense of style. The new book "Gary Cooper: Enduring Style" features stunning photographs of Cooper from the mid-1920s through 1960 in everything from fashionable suits to only a zebra-skinned throw. The book includes a foreword by Ralph Lauren, who describes Coop as having an "ideal American look.

There is a sad, desperate quality to the woman who calls herself Angelyne, like a clown still performing long after the circus has closed. I say this despite the playful manner in which she displays herself as a Hollywood sex kitten with a Betty Boop cant, flouncing down the street in a zebra-striped mini-dress with a decolletage that borders on burlesque. She becomes a caricature, rather than a real person, as tenuous as the murals and billboards she buys all over town to create her own fame.

In Paris, women clutch flirtatious little Chanel bags, so small they hold next to nothing. In New York, they take the opposite tack, lugging mega-tote bags that bend their backs into Quasimodo crouches, so they can keep their subway reading, gym clothes and other such sundries close at hand. But in Los Angeles, women breeze around town carrying nothing except a set of keys. That's because the quintessential California purse comes with four wheels and a trunk.

Low-frequency radio waves can kill zebra mussels, which cause millions of dollars in damage by clogging water intake pipes at power plants and other installations, researchers reported Tuesday at an American Chemical Society meeting. Zebra mussels in an aquarium that were exposed to very low frequency electromagnetic waves--about 60 hertz, similar to what is emitted by a power outlet--died within 40 days, according to researchers from Purdue University-Calumet in Hammond, Ind.

Two young zebras of an endangered species died at National Zoo facilities this winter, apparently because keepers failed to feed them enough fat and protein and keep them sufficiently warm during Washington's frigid nights, officials said Friday. A 1-year-old male zebra from the Detroit Zoo spending his first winter in the nation's capital, was discovered dead in a heated barn at the zoo Feb. 1 after a night when the temperature fell to 24 degrees.

In response to Eric Monson of Temecula regarding NFL officials: Get off your high horse, and cut those guys some slack! If not for the refs keeping things fair and organized on the field, chaos would assuredly ensue. Refs, and umpires alike, have the unpleasant task of playing bad guys to overpaid crybabies who would, otherwise, win under their own set of rules. Referees and umpires continually get pushed around, spat on, and heckled for trying to keep the game fair. In a loose comparison, sports officials are like the dishwashers, garbage men, teachers, nurses, and others in low-paid professions.
