    Zach Dionne

    There may be a make-believe R. Kelly in our midst, and this matters. Not only because Kellz might have fudged a concert or had his likeness taken advantage of, but because we don't want Lady Gaga impersonators playing Staples Center in a few years wh...

    Robert Mays

    Rafe Bartholomew

    Immediately after the ninth round in Saturday's welterweight fight between Victor Ortiz and Josesito Lopez, I wrote a question in my notebook: "Who is crazier, Ortiz or Lopez?" From ringside at Staples Center, I had just watched Lopez and Ortiz sp...
