    Colony in Pacific Palisades nurtured top artists in 1950s, 1960s

    Herman Maril had two worlds, and each provided him what something the other lacked. The artist, who was born in Baltimore in 1908 and died here in 1986, spent his life painting some of the grittier aspects of the city. Invariably, his astute and...
  • 'Changeling'

    Others may regard them in a less complicated way, but I wonder whether Angelina Jolie ever has mixed feelings about her lips. They hog the limelight just by being there, daring moviegoers more into tomb-raiding than "A Mighty Heart" not to take her acting...

    Matlacha was a surprise. But then most things on the southwest coast of Florida were a surprise. I had driven I-75 between Fort Myers and Sarasota numerous times and always wondered what lay to the west, along the water. Now I was finding out. Matlacha...
