By having his children baptised in the River Jordan, perhaps the head of News Corp is signalling his own conversion This week's Hello Magazine has a cover so Hello-ishly Hello-esque that one ought to wear sunglasses before picking it up. Royalty, in the shape of Queen Rania of Jordan, rubs shoulders with celebrity (Nicole Kidman), in a composition of flowing white robes and surrounded by decoratively angelic children. But wait, who is the outsize leprechaun in the corner? Surely not Rupert Murdoch, looking like he has wandered into a Broadway revival of Hair! The photographs...

    Dear God: If you can't stop Mark Morford, please teach him to use the internet Wed Apr 30, 2008 at 02:20:20 PM by Benjamin Wachs I try not to call Chron columnist Mark Morford out on his stylistic problem as a writer, because who has that kind of time? But as a fellow journalist I feel that research – knowing at least a little about what we’re writing about – is the very least we owe the public. The very, very least. So a few months ago I called him out on the sheer ignorance of his attacks against Christianity....

    A decision by the Copyright Royalty Board to raise royalty fees could put some small online radio stations out of business by Olga Kharif Kurt Hanson runs a Chicago-based online radio station that streams more than 300 channels of classical, jazz, oldies, and other music genres aimed at adults.

    Sentencing Postponed For South S.F. Child Molester Family members of a 42-year-old computer technician who pleaded no contest to molesting his niece asked for leniency from a San Mateo County Superior Court judge Monday morning, saying his behavior had been very "out of character."

According to prosecutors, Olp molested his sister's daughter over a five-year-period, beginning when the girl was 9 years old. Olp was...

    February 3, 2007, 6:58 PM When Is The Right Time To Cheat On Your Wife? By Luke Ford | Terri emails: “I would give you s*** about this story – except for the fact that the mayor has admitted to having an affair WHILE HIS WIFE WAS UNDERGOING CANCER TREATMENT. What a scumbag.” What better time is there to cheat on one’s spouse? It’s not like she’s dying for sex while fighting cancer. What’s a highly-sexed guy with lots of options to do? Yes, ideally, he should not cheat. But most people are not such saints. Robert Greene writes on...

Everything is fine and honky dorky until your wife, out of the blue, admits to having a fling with not only your boss but one of your best buddies. Even worse, it appears the everyone in the city (except us) knew about it but you didn't. Man, that's one hell of a bad week. Whenever we see these storylines on TV or in the movies, it always ends badly, like in people being shot and killed badly. So where are we with all of this? Well everybody...

    TORONTO - After you kill off President George W. Bush in a fictional film, what do you do? How about make a deal. Gabriel Range, the British producer/director/creator of ”Death of a President,” the fictional documentary that sight unseen became one of the most talked-about movies of the Toronto Film Festival, has sold US distribution rights to Newmarket Films, which handled Mel Gibson’s equally provocative movie “The Passion of the Christ.” Newmarket, which reportedly paid $1 million for the film, is expected to give “President” a wide release within the next few months. It will air on Britain’s Channel 4...

    We have to remain strong. Today my mom told me her boss's nefew died in Iraq. I was deeply saddened. And though I have been lucky enough not to have anyone near me pass on because of this war, my brother will probably be shipping out soon. I keep thinking about if he is next. Could I be one of the unfortunate who have to attend a funeral? And though I know many of you have a soldier in Iraq and are dealing with the same thoughts everyday, I have noticed that a lot of people have been posting and...
