NEW IN THEATERS
One opened for Ann-Margret; others delighted audiences on cruise ships. Still others simply enjoy performing.
Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
The state House voted Thursday to put a five-year lifetime cap on government-funded health – but not for everyone.
WASHINGTON — The perfect score will again be 1,600. What's more, the essay will be optional, students will no longer be penalized for wrong answers and the vocabulary is shifting to do away with some high-sounding words such as "prevaricator" and "sagacious."
Legislators balked Wednesday at the idea of lowering income taxes if Arizona can start getting online retailers to begin collecting state sales taxes.
Actor and Mesa native Charlie LeSueur recently left his footprints in cement at the Superstition Mountain Museum for his work preserving a part of television history.

You have to admit, Arizona’s home to some odd animals: the Gila monster and chuckwalla, the coatimundi and the javelina — and at one time, to a greater extent than it is now — the ostrich.
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.
When I was studying to be a rabbi, I spent several years doing volunteer service work in India, Thailand, El Salvador, Ghana, and many other countries.

Do you believe a photographer who identifies as homosexual should be punished for refusing to photograph an event celebrating the Westboro Baptist Church’s hateful ideas? Do you believe a Jewish printer should be threatened for declining to promote a conference criticizing Israel? Do you believe a pacifist should be coerced to paint pro-war posters for a rally? If you believe all these are wrong, you should support Arizona’s SB 1062—because that’s what the bill’s about rather than the things you may have heard.
The hype and rhetoric on both sides of SB 1062 now awaiting action by Gov. Jan Brewer may disguise the fact the measure does far less than some have suggested.
Gov. Jan Brewer returned to Arizona on Tuesday and faced a pressing decision about a bill on her desk that has prompted a national debate over religious and gay rights.
An attorney for the state wants a judge to throw out a bid by several gay couples to allow them to marry.
