  • Sid Caesar dies at 91; comedy giant of the small screen

    Sid Caesar dies at 91; comedy giant of the small screen
    In a day before comedy was laced with irony and studded with mean-spirited barbs, Sid Caesar was more than funny. He was hilariously, outrageously, tear-inducingly, gather-up-the-whole-family-for-this funny. A veteran of the Catskills with an...
  • The California Supreme Court was right to reject Stephen Glass

    The California Supreme Court was right to reject Stephen Glass
    Gotta admit, I was rooting for Stephen Glass in his quest to be admitted to the California bar. I had trouble grasping how a disgraced "wunderkind" journalist who made up or falsely embellished some 40 magazine stories in the late-1990s could not be...
  • Gay conversion therapy -- the 'speech' versus 'conduct' debate

    Gay conversion therapy -- the 'speech' versus 'conduct' debate
    A California law that prohibits therapists from trying to change the sexual orientation of children and adolescents survived another legal challenge this week. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals announced that an earlier decision by a three-judge panel...
  • Dan Haar: Aetna's Bertolini, Actress Bring Mindfulness To Mainstream

    Dan Haar: Aetna's Bertolini, Actress Bring Mindfulness To Mainstream
    You could say Mark T. Bertolini knows about stress, not only from his 24/7 job as Aetna CEO but also as a kidney donor to his son who nearly died, and survivor of a ski accident that left him partly paralyzed. He's arguably the most prominent advocate...
  • Gary Shteyngart on 'Little Failure'

    Gary Shteyngart on 'Little Failure'
    If comedy springs from childhood misery, Gary Shteyngart, one of the funniest writers in America, must have had a truly awful childhood. And so he did, as we learn in his simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking new memoir, "Little Failure." Even...
  • London thieves wreck priceless urn in attempt to steal Freud's ashes

    Thieves who attempted to steal a priceless Greek urn containing the cremated remains of Sigmund Freud from its resting place in London failed to make off with the ashes but badly damaged the 2,300-year-old receptacle, Scotland Yard said Wednesday. The...
  • Gary Shteyngart laughs away life's 'Little Failure'

    Gary Shteyngart laughs away life's 'Little Failure'
    I don't speak a word of Russian. But I've come to believe some sort of strange symbiosis exists between the language of Tolstoy and the language of Shakespeare. Russia gave birth to that master of English-language prose named Vladimir Nabokov. Half a...
  • It's time to stamp out spanking as a solution

    It's time to stamp out spanking as a solution
    I once spent a snowy Saturday at a 5-year-old's birthday party in one of those indoor play spaces that resembles an asylum. Toward the end, one of the guests melted down: tears, screaming, stomping. I know the little boy's mom, and she is a skilled...
  • The Medicine Cabinet-Ask the Harvard Experts: Hypnosis can be a useful element of anti-anxiety therapy

    Q: Is hypnotherapy effective for generalized anxiety and panic disorders? A: Hypnosis is not just a parlor trick. When taken seriously, it is an effective relaxation technique. And some people say it helps manage their anxiety. Here's how it works: You'...
  • Letting stress float away

    Letting stress float away
    Recently, I spent an hour floating in a 4-by-8 isolation tank filled with tepid salt water in a basement in Manassas, Va. No, this wasn't a "Silence of the Lambs" scenario. It was an exercise meant to bolster my sanity, not endanger it. Floating in...
  • Court weighs granting disgraced journalist Stephen Glass law license

    SACRAMENTO — Stephen R. Glass, a former journalist whose fabrications for major magazines sparked a national furor, bent his head at times and reddened as he listened to members of the California Supreme Court suggest he was morally unfit to...
