GPS or NOT? I was stopped by a young man
earlier today.  He was lost.  He was about 500 yards from the main road out
of here and had obviously made a wrong turn and he was panicking.  “My GPS has packed up, and I need to find the

Sunday's Column - Museum of Death
Well, it's something that we're all going to experience - some sooner than others, of course.  But in Los Angeles - Hollywood naturally - there's a museum of death to spend a little time in preparation for the event.  All aspects are on display here and it'...
