    By Lynne Z. Gold-Bikin

    February 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    The statistics haven't changed much in the close to 30 years I've been in practice. About 50 percent of all American marriages end in divorce. As a family law attorney, I work with people every day who are giving up on their dreams of marital bliss. And in many cases -- for my client...

    By Matthew E. Berger

    February 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    February 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    It was the kind of exchange that is perhaps all too rare in a Jewish community divided by belief, language and geography into many distinct enclaves.

    In an initial reaction Tuesday to Ariel Sharon's electoral victory, most Jewish leaders in Los Angeles pledged support to Israel's democratically elected leader.

    When Natasha Richardson starred in Paul Schrader's 1988 biopic, "Patty Hearst," she drew inspiration from a Holocaust-themed tome plucked off a shelf in her father's Los Angeles home. The book was "If This Is a Man," Primo Levi's account of his time in Auschwitz, and in its pages...

  • Am I Really Going to Vote for Ariel Sharon?

    By David Margolis

    February 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Not happily, not comfortably, but in a word, yes, I am going to vote for Sharon. I know about Sabra and Shatila, but Ehud Barak has so completely betrayed the hopeful vote I cast for him in 1999 that by now even most of my ambivalence is gone, replaced by an urgency to oust Barak...
