DALLAS — Travelers take note: The economics of earning free airline flights are changing.
LOS ANGELES — With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.
A former boyfriend of an Arizona woman accused of fatally bludgeoning her husband with a hammer testified Monday that he repeatedly loaned her money, even in the weeks after she was arrested in the attack.

On weekends and evenings, you can find Ken and Jennifer Marlin volunteering at their church or serving on committees for their kids’ schools. What you won’t find them doing is walking to their mailbox as often as they used to.
“I have had it with these ‘monkey fighting’ SMSs on this ‘Monday to Friday’ plane!” No, it’s not a line from the latest Liam Neeson action vehicle, Non-Stop, but it could have been. There are so many ways one could slam this new film, but, surprisingly, despite its clichés and convoluted plot, this is still a thrilling and fun time at the movies.
It’s easy to imagine how the pitch for “Non-Stop,” the latest action thriller starring Liam Neeson, went down. “Okay, guys, how about this? It’s ‘Taken,’ but on an airplane!” The surprise is that “Non-Stop” not only could have been a sequel to “Taken,” but it’s also everything “Taken 2” should have been. The film finds Neeson is a familiar role in a plot that mixes together elements of “Air Force One,” “Flightplan,” and various Hitchcockian thrillers. While this sort of thing has been done before, the result is just fresh enough to stand out from all the rest.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was holding a series of private meetings Wednesday with opponents and proponents of legislation adding protections for people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays, a proposal that has focused national attention on the state as business groups, gay rights supporters and even many fellow Republicans urged her to use her veto power.
