LAPD's art theft unit is a piece of work

Tue Sep 16, 2014

Tibetan artifacts shouldn’t be stashed among a pack of pot-bellied pigs, but that’s how Detective Don Hrycyk found them. They’d been stolen over a decade earlier by a man who’d befriended the owner, a New York art collector and scholar. Police received a tip that the culprit, a man who’d gained the t

TV Rewind: The Monkees keep rocking after 48 years

The half-hour comedy about a band of struggling musicians was filled with slapstick, surreal moments and catchy pop music. The series debuted 48

Reality Check: America's got singers, not so much talent

Mon Sep 15, 2014

“America’s Got Talent,” even its fans must agree, is a weird and contradictory show.

It gives awa
