Recently — in the last year maybe — I stopped telling people I was “heading back home” when visiting Mom and Dad. It wasn’t a conscious decision, it just kind of happened. I’ve settled so comfortably in the Burbank area, and aspects of it remind me so much of where I grew up that it’s only natural I’ve begun to call it home.

The titular villain in James Cameron’s original “Terminator” wasn’t kidding when he said, “I’ll be back.” Shot, smashed, incinerated, he kept coming back (even when he didn’t promise to).

With the possible exception of “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” “The Killers” is Ernest Hemingway’s best known short story. It is the quintessential stripped-down hard-boiled story: Two hit men show up at a small town diner to kill one of the regular customers, a former boxer.

Re: “Bill envisions expanding health services,” Op-ed, July 1. The op-ed writer Lilia Babakhan, a second-year optometry student, supports SB 622 allowing her the potential to perform “minor procedures.” However, those procedures are anything but “minor” — they are eye surgeries with real potential complications, including, for example, the spread of cancer. Yet, after just 25 hours of additional course work following optometry school and performing a small number of training cases the bill would allow her to become “certified” to do either laser eye surgery for glaucoma and after cataract surgery, or scalpel surgery to remove or destroy eyelid lesions and medication injections, including into the eye.
