    SANTA ANA, Calif. — The man charged with killing Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others in a drunken driving crash pleaded not guilty Monday to three counts of murder as relatives of the dead and one survivor looked on. Andrew Thomas Gallo, 22, also pleaded not guilty through his attorney to three other felony charges and one misdemeanor in the April 9 collision that occurred just hours after Adenhart pitched six scoreless innings in his season debut. Gallo watched from inside a security enclosure as defense attorney Randall Longwith entered the pleas before an Orange County Superior...

    Joseph Edward Gallo Jr., who broke from his winemaking family to make cheese and then waged a high-profile spat with his famous brothers over use of the Gallo name, has died. He was 87. Gallo died Feb. 17 at his home in Livingston of a longtime illness, Donna Bradley, a spokeswoman for Joseph Farms, said Thursday.

    UNITED STATES: "AIDS Alert Draws Criticism" Newsday (02.13.05)::Kathleen Kerr On Saturday, New York health officials were criticized as having acted too hastily in alerting the public that an antiretroviral-naive city resident recently contracted HIV resistant to three ARV drug classes and quickly progressed to AIDS. Just one case "was not enough to warrant a public health alert," said Dr. Robert Gallo, a leading virologist at University of Maryland. "It's irresponsible and outrageous. We've already heard past claims about superviruses that all turn out to be nonsense. From the science, I would say the probability is very high that you won't see...

    In May of 2003 I walked out of the press screening of Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny" at the Cannes Film Festival and was asked by a camera crew what I thought of the film. I said I thought it was the worst film in the history of the festival. That was hyperbole -- I hadn't seen every film in the history of the festival -- but I was still vibrating from one of the most disastrous screenings I had ever attended. The audience was loud and scornful in its dislike for the movie; hundreds walked out, and many of...

    CANNES, France--The Affair of the Brown Bunny, one of the most astonishing episodes in the history of the Cannes Film Festival, took another turn Friday when director Vincent Gallo apologized for his film and said, "It is a disaster and a waste of time." Gallo's "Brown Bunny," which screened as one of three American entries in the official competition, was the lowest-rated film in the history of Screen International, the British trade paper that tabulates votes of a panel of critics. It was booed and laughed at during its screenings, there were countless walkouts, and its inclusion as an official...

    Actor-director Vincent Gallo has denied apologising for his derided road movie The Brown Bunny - and dismissed US film critic Roger Ebert as a "fat pig" for saying that he did. On its recent unveiling at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was a contender for the Palme d'Or, Gallo's film was greeted by hoots of derision. The Brown Bunny stars Gallo as a brooding biker on a cross-country odyssey through the US, who finds himself haunted by memories of an ex-girlfriend (Chloe Sevigny). Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw labelled it "the most hysterical event in Cannes history", and said...
