BURBANK — A small group of demonstrators huddled outside NBC Studios on Monday, calling on world leaders to take decisive action on climate change as President Obama prepares for a series of meetings this week.

Post was the one-eyed flier who set circumnavigation and distance records throughout the '20s and '30s. He lost his eye in an oil field accident and used the settlement money to buy his first airplane. Post was known everywhere for the dashing patch he wore over his eye. But it was the loss of Rogers that stunned and saddened the country most.

Dear screenwriters, fiction writers, copywriters, letter writers, memo writers, resume writers, e-mail writers, manifesto writers and public lavatory poets: It's time we had a talk ? about typos.

Salazar was one of hundreds of people who lined up for free carne asada tacos and sat down to eat their meals while they listened to Mariachi Fiesta de Jalisco play traditional folk music and to Orquestra Charangoa play salsa music.
