  • Big rock night for Diamond, Cooper

    NEW YORK — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s annual induction ceremony is the only place you’d find Bruce Springsteen as just one member of a 21-piece backup band.
    The rock hall’s latest class brought together Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, Darlene Love, Dr. John and Leon Russell, and after all the speeches were done the musicians kept playing until the wee hours.

  • Review: 'Moonlight and Magnolias' glows

    Being trapped in a room with a boss and co-worker probably isn’t how most people want to spend a day, never mind five days, especially when there’s only peanuts and bananas for subsistence, but that’s exactly how Victor Fleming, Ben Hecht and David O. Selznick spent a week while working on the screenplay for “Gone With the Wind.”
    Los Alamos Little Theater’s latest production, “Moonlight and Magnolias,” by Ron Hutchinson, chronicles the trio’s journey to write what would become a very well known film.

  • Aflac dumps duck voice actor for tasteless tweets

    COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — Aflac Inc. said Monday it has fired Gilbert Gottfried, the abrasive voice of the insurer's quacking duck in the U.S., after the comedian posted a string of mocking jokes about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on Twitter over the weekend.

    The tasteless tweets are particularly problematic for Aflac because it does 75 percent of its business in Japan. One in four homes in Japan buys health insurance from Aflac. The insurer's CEO, Daniel Amos, flew to Japan on Sunday to show support for the company's employees and agents.

    Sheen was fired from the hit CBS show Monday.

  • Warner: Sheen fired from 'Two and a Half Men'

     

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen was fired Monday from "Two and a Half Men" by Warner Bros. Television following the hard-living actor's bouts of wild partying, repeated hospitalizations and a bitter media campaign against his studio bosses.

    The action was taken after "careful consideration" and was effective immediately, the studio said in a statement. No decision has been made on the show's future without its star, Warner spokesman Paul McGuire said.
