To an extent, covering the NBA in the 1980s meant covering the Lakers and the Celtics. For the better part of that decade, I could set a preseason agenda of travel to L.A. and Boston -- with some side trips to Chicago (a guy named Jordan was playing there) and Detroit (the Bad Boys first turned baaa-d in the mid-'80s) -- and be pretty much on the money. And it came, conveniently, full circle in my final year as a full-time NBA beat writer when it was Boston-L.A. in the 2008 Finals.
A look back at the career of actor Dennis Hopper, who died at his home in Venice, California.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Dario Franchitti has always exuded a certain amount of glamour. After all, the Scotsman of Italian heritage has the dark, good looks of an actor, but it's his wife, Ashley Judd, who has gained fame in Hollywood.
There was Dennis Hopper before "Easy Rider," generally known as a clean-cut, if rebellious, character actor who had built a career of supporting roles in Westerns, youth-oriented films and TV shows.

Swiss authorities will make a decision early next year on whether to agree to a U.S. extradition request for award-winning director Roman Polanski, a spokesman for the Federal Department of Justice and Police said Wednesday.
I don't know if you have ever done it, but for a long time it seemed like everyone had at least once or twice said "Jack Nicholson" when they meant "Jack Nicklaus" and vice versa. It seems weird if you think about it... yes, the names are similar, but it's hard to imagine that Nicklaus and Nicholson often share a similar context. Nicholson isn't winning Masters. Nicklaus isn't winning Oscars. But the strangeness of having two people that famous with similar names seemed more than many of us could handle. Eddie Murray and Eddie Murphy shared a similar connection.

Can a film be held together purely by the power of its cast? That's the risk director Rob Reiner's taken with "The Bucket List," a movie derided by some as little more than a shop-front for its megastars.
As that "great determinator" Super Tuesday quickly draws near, some new high-powered celebrity endorsements – as well as additional bolstering by loyal top-name supporters – are adding further rhetoric to the race.

MARKETS: So is a semblance of normalcy returning? Maybe. But really Market Shock 2007 will be with us for a while. Smoldering on. Worse in some businesses like credit derivatives, subprime mortgages. I forget who it was...maybe my former boss and wise man Norm Pearlstine (great to see you the other day Norm!)....who said this whole deal is going to be somewhat like the S&L crisis of the 1980s in terms of size and scope. In other words, bad for a lot of folks, not a killer though. The one difference is that I wouldn't look for any sort of bailout - though Bill Gross of PIMCO (for more on that institution, see below) thinks the government should bail out homeowners.

In these last months of Fidel Castro's moribundity, there is delicious irony in the film clip of him that is repeatedly shown on cable television. Wearing a clownishly incongruous jogging suit, the fabled maestro of revolution and progress is filmed shuffling metronomically, gray and feeble, blank-faced and apparently going no place. Maybe he is on a treadmill that we cannot see. Maybe he is merely picking up his tired feet and putting them back down with no forward motion. Possibly this whole idiotic scene is a fabrication created by our CIA. Well, if so, it is a job well done. There is poetry here.

Today, most ringtones for cellular phones are snippets of existing songs or compositions, with top-40 and hip-hop hits making up the bulk of the downloaded tones.
