News items, N.H.L. owners to lockout players:

Columnist Joe Schwarz expresses his thoughts on the latest headlines

N.H.L. Season is too long, the price of tickets too expensive, the players are over paid and fight too much. All N.H.L members should enter a monastery for a year or two and together meditate, seeking how they can best serve their fans and country.

Duchess of Cambridge furious finding herself topless in a french magazine photo.

Can’t blame her if unintentional but in this day of security cameras and satellites celebrities take their chances getting a captivating southern exposure. Be thankful it was warm.

Who knows where this might lead. Her brother-in-law Prince Harry was magazined in his natural state including his “little Wilbur” in Las Vegas and is now doing time in Afghanistan. Such is life.
