    Bob Levine remembers the first time he met Frank Sinatra. "I knew Sinatra before he was Sinatra," Levine said.

Sinatra, who had not yet hit it big himself, was walking out of his house when he saw Levine and his buddies cutting the grass. Levine said Sinatra asked them what his wife, Nancy, was paying them. Levine said one of them responded a quarter each. Sinatra then gave each of them...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — An anti-profanity crusader on Tuesday asked ABC to pull this week's "Modern Family" episode in which a toddler appears to use a bleeped curse word. "Our main goal is to stop this from happening," said McKay Hatch, an 18-year-old college student who founded the No Cussing Club in 2007. "If we don't, at least ABC knows that people all over the world don't want to have a 2-year-old saying the 'F-bomb' on TV."
