California Legislature OKs online tax bill ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO California lawmakers have passed a bill to force out-of-state Internet retailers such as Amazon.com to collect taxes under two different legal theories,

both of which have been criticized by online sellers. The online tax bill combines elements of other bills introduced this legislative session. Supporters expect it to bring in $200 million or more per year, $83 million from Amazon alone.

The bill, ABX1-28, was approved last week as part of a Democratic package to meet California’s budget deadline. Gov. Jerry Brown promptly vetoed the main budget bills, but others, including the

of a limb is difficult enough without hassling with an outmoded prosthetic socket that will more than likely have to be replaced within the first year of its use. That difficulty may soon be a thing of the past thanks to the development of a new type of socket, or interface, that grabs the bone instead of just cupping the limb. Created by Santa Monica-based company Biodesigns Inc., the High-Fidelity Socket System gives prosthetic limb users a more natural feel with a greater range of motion. While still early in its development, Biodesigns Inc. has fitted over 100 patients with the new interface and those numbers are expected to explode as the technology spreads throughout the medical community. “I knew the idea would work,” Biodesigns Inc. founder Randy Alley said. “I’m amazed how well it works in reality.” The High-Fidelity Socket takes a unique approach to what has been an antiquated practice. Instead of just molding a plastic socket around a patient’s limb, Alley has developed SEE SOCKET PAGE 7

Cosmetics companies sued over ‘organic’ labels PAUL ELIAS Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO An environmental group filed a lawsuit Thursday against 26 cosmetic companies, claiming they are improperly

labeling products such as shampoo, facial washes and soaps as organic. The Center for Environmental Health said in its lawsuit filed in Alameda County Superior Court that the companies are violating a California labeling law requiring

organic products to contain at least 70 percent organic ingredients. Organic labels connote the natural ingredients used to make the product were SEE MAKEUP PAGE 8

‘Lantern’ nets low-beam debut of $52.7 million DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES Ryan Reynolds is the latest superhero to rule the weekend box office. Reynolds’“Green Lantern” debuted at No. 1 with $52.7 million domestically, a fair but unremarkable opening stacked up against other comic-book adaptations. The movie added $17 million in a handful of overseas markets where it has opened, including Great Britain and Russia. Released by Warner Bros., “Green Lantern” brought up the rear among superhero movies to open so far this summer, behind the $65.7 million debut of “Thor” and the $55.1 million launch of “X-Men: First Class.” The previous weekend’s top flick, Paramount Pictures’ sci-fi adventure “Super 8,” slipped to No. 2 with $21.3 million. Its domestic total rose to $72.8 million. Jim Carrey’s family comedy “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” had a frosty start as the 20th Century Fox release came in at No. 3 with $18.2 million. Overall business cooled for the secondstraight weekend. Hollywood revenues totaled $149 million, down a steep 25 percent from the same weekend last year, when Disney’s Pixar Animation blockbuster “Toy Story 3” debuted with $110.3 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Receipts this summer season still are ahead of last year’s, with revenue climbing to $1.56 billion since the first weekend in May, up 7 percent from 2010’s pace. Another Pixar animated sequel, “Cars 2,” could steer Hollywood upward again this coming weekend. “We’re fine. We’re still ahead of last summer, and Pixar is going to have a chance to get us back in the mix next weekend,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Adapted from the DC Comics series, “Green Lantern” stars Reynolds as a cocky test pilot who gains superpowers after he becomes the first human recruit of a galactic police force. The movie was trashed by critics, and after a solid $21.6 million haul on opening day Friday, “Green Lantern” trailed off sharply as revenues dropped 22 percent SEE BOX OFFICE PAGE 9

FORMER SAMOHI STANDOUT IN ACTION: The Visalia Rawhide’s Tyler Skaggs makes a pitch against Stockton earlier this season.

MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Skaggs earns second all-star nod BY DANIEL ARCHULETA Managing Editor

VISALIA, Calif. Talk about local boy makes good. Former Santa Monica High School standout and current member of the Visalia Rawhide Tyler Skaggs has been named to his second single-A all-star game, this time in the California League, it was announced last week. The tall left-handed pitcher with a wicked curve ball, who is considered one of the top prospects in the Arizona Diamondback’s organization, will get another chance to showcase his talent on Tuesday in Modesto as the game’s starter. He will be facing off with all-stars from the Carolina League. “I didn’t expect it to go this well,” Skaggs

said of this season. “I’m pretty excited about it.” Skaggs’ rise to baseball notoriety has been swift. Since being drafted by the Los Angeles Angels with the 40th pick in the Major League Baseball Draft in 2009, Skaggs has already been a part of a major trade involving fellow hurler Dan Harden and, for a time this season, led all minor leaguers in strikeouts. He’s currently in the top five with 95 punchouts. He also leads his team with four wins and a 3.51 earned run average. While Skaggs, 19, began his rise on the baseball field at Samohi, his work with pitching coach and former Cy Young Award winner Doug Drabek has produced marked improvement this season. Drabek, who starred for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the early 1990s, said that Skaggs is finally starting to work on other pitches

besides his curveball to finish batters off, something that is key if he’s going to continue his path to the big leagues. Most apparent is Skaggs’ ability to use his fastball as an out pitch. Clocked at 90-92 mph, Skaggs’ fastball has become a strength as the lefty racks up strikeouts. Drabek is also pleased to see Skaggs cut down on his pitch count, giving him a better opportunity to show off his development. “He’s progressing a lot,” Drabek said of his star pupil. “He’s pitching a little more, not just throwing.” More than anything else, Drabek said that Skaggs’ willingness to learn has helped him become one of the D’Back’s top pitching prospects. From what he’s seen, Drabek said that Skaggs appears to be ready to be promoted to double-A, but ultimately that SEE SKAGGS PAGE 9

EDITOR IN CHIEF

Bring light to the truth Editor:

I am sure that there is merit in the article discussing the change in the army’s military headwear fashion, but I was more interested in the picture with which you chose to display the beret in question on [Wednesday’s] front page. (”Army ditches black berets in favor of old patrol caps,” page 7, June 15, 2011) That non-identified picture is of U.S. Army intelligence analyst Private First Class Bradley E. Manning, a suspected whistle-blower who is imprisoned and was tortured by the U.S. military for almost a full year (never brought to trial to date, much less found guilty of any wrong-doing). Bradley Manning’s torture by the U.S. military violates the U.S. Constitution’s Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment, and its Fifth Amendment’s guaranteeing no punishment without trial. An international public campaign of outcry has forced the military to provide him with more humane imprisonment, but it took almost a year for this to happen. This is the state of our nation today — where people simply accused or just suspected of wrongdoing are tortured with solitary confinement. Bradley Manning, in contradiction of his psychoanalytical review, was denied access to family, supporters and official inquiry; forced to disrobe in public; made miserable by abrasive clothing and bedding; etc. without even a pretense of a trail to determine guilt. What has become of this country? I have been a volunteer at the Arlington West Memorial in Santa Monica for seven years. The veterans and supporters of Chapter 7 of Veterans for Peace Los Angeles (a chapter of the national, non-profit veterans organization whose volunteers have operated the memorial in Santa Monica every Sunday for over seven years without ever missing a Sunday) recognize Bradley Manning’s courage, whether or not he released classified government information. Either way, our chapter and organization support Manning’s immediate release and freedom. We provide information to the public about Private Manning’s situation at the Santa Monica memorial in support of military service which is both honorable and honest. The release of the government information in question to Wikileaks — similar to Daniel Ellsberg’s release of the Pentagon Papers from Santa Monica’s RAND Corporation in 1971 to newspapers across the country — reveals the truth of the history of our government’s actions to its citizens. That which is immoral and wrong must be exposed so that it can be corrected. Without truth, real and meaningful democracy is nonexistent, and living one’s life ethically is made impossible for all intents and purposes. While military fashion has its place, issues such as Bradley Manning’s treatment and the support of whistle-blowers are far more important in terms of their relevance to our well-being as a community and nation. Such important issues deserve full and continual media investigation and reporting. I believe that this is an important function of a free press in a democratic society. More information on this important matter can be found by the readers of the Santa Monica Daily Press at www.couragetoresist.org and www.bradleymanning.org. I am grateful for the existence and work of the Santa Monica Daily Press, and look forward to reading more about Bradley Manning’s situation in the paper. Thank you for covering issues of importance to all residents of the region.

Shriver to feds: Time to cut a check

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE VETERANS

Administration’s dereliction of its duties to America’s war vets took a new turn two weeks ago with the filing of a lawsuit seeking class action status in federal court against Veterans Administration Secretary Eric K. Shinseki and the director of the VA/Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, Donna M. Veiter. The complaint, filed by Santa Monica City Councilman Bobby Shriver, Laurence Tribe, the Southern California ACLU, four disabled homeless vets, Bandini de Baker (whose family originally owned the current 387 acre West Los Angeles VA property) and other veterans’ advocates, alleges the Department of Veterans Affairs is misusing large portions of its campus and has failed to provide adequate housing and treatment for homeless veterans. Shriver has pushed hard for additional housing at the VA for seven years. He had identified three empty buildings that could be used to house mentally disabled, chronically homeless veterans and vets with substance abuse problems. Shriver and veterans’ advocates had grown frustrated as securing funding had become a long, drawn-out process. Only one of three of the buildings was funded to the tune of $20 million last June, a minimal commitment. Nothing has happened since then and now even those unspent funds may be in jeopardy. Most of the blame for the VA stagnation rests with federal politicos. Last July 5, I wrote that U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who despite sitting on the Senate Appropriations Committee and being a former chair and ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Committee on Military Construction and Veterans’ Affairs, had never championed funding for this project nor had U.S. Representative Henry A. Waxman (D-Santa Monica). Homeless vets just weren’t a major concern for them. Only after the suit was announced did Feinstein and Waxman issue a joint letter to Shinseki and the director of the Office of Management and Budget, Jack Lew, asking them to “promptly finalize a request to Congress for construction projects, including $20 million for homeless veterans projects (one building) on the West Los Angeles campus.” Since the filing, the VA has issued a flurry of press releases reiterating its support for the regions homeless veterans. With the chance of the $20 million being lost due to budget cuts, Shriver told me that they (Feinstein, Waxman and VA honchos) need to stop the puffery because it’s time to write a check. “The delays are unacceptable,” he said suggesting they ask the president to issue an executive order because it’s an emergency. In 2009, the ACLU sued City Hall for not

doing enough for the homeless — a meritless complaint that was dismissed by a federal judge last June. At the time, Shriver said that the VA should have been sued “because they have existing housing that’s empty and unused while tens of thousands of homeless vets live in dumpsters and on streets all over the county.” Bobby praised the legal team working on this lawsuit. “To their credit, the ACLU heard and listened and are now doing something about it. They’ve responded,” he said. Let’s hope Shriver’s project gets its funding and fast. If the money slips away now, it may be years before additional funding is secured. Meanwhile, homeless vets are living and dying in trash bins.

PARKING APPEAL LAWSUIT FILED

A lawsuit has been filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against the City of Santa Monica, ACS State & Local Systems and Sheri Ross by residents Harriet and Stanley Epstein. Their complaint asks for a class action certification on behalf of all people who provided a defense to a parking citation issued in Santa Monica since Jan. 1, 2009 — either by letter and/or hearing — who weren’t provided a reason why their defense was rejected. They want City Hall to have each case reopened and adjudicated again. There’s more to come. YAHOO! CENTER, SAINT JOHN’S PREVAIL

Last week, I wrote about amendments to development agreements for the Yahoo! Center business park and Saint John’s Health Center. The Yahoo! Center’s owners wanted to “legalize” the leasing of parking spots to non-tenants, provide less parking for tenants and eliminate a requirement for free tenant employee parking. Tuesday, Pam O’Connor, Gleam Davis, Terry O’ Day, Richard Bloom and Bob Holbrook supported the amendment while Kevin McKeown and Bobby Shriver (whose campaigns were not supported by developer interests) asked to postpone any decision pending a detailed financial analysis of the parking operations. Wednesday, the Planning Commission voted to recommend that Saint John’s Health Center amend its development agreement to utilize the Yahoo! Center to park 450 vehicles for 10 years as opposed to building a promised parking garage on campus. The decision came about in part because shared parking and the traffic demand management plan proposed by Saint John’s are important elements in the new Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE). Next stop: City Council on June 26.

Demand up for walking expert DAISY NGUYEN Associated Press

REDONDO BEACH When Dan Burden started approaching bureaucrats about making streets more pedestrian friendly 16 years ago, he could hardly get them to look up from their desks. That was a lot of miles ago. Today, with the health, environmental and quality-of-life benefits of walk-able neighborhoods, they can’t get enough of Burden. Even in car-dependent Southern California, where he spent a few of his roughly 340 days a year on the road this spring, city planners are literally walking the talk alongside him. Burden, 67, doesn’t own a car and conducts so-called walking audits by foot. “He is the Johnny Appleseed of walk-able communities, a true modern nomad,” said Ryan Snyder, a transportation planning consultant who brought Burden aboard to create a plan to improve streets in Los Angeles County. “I am guessing there’s been nobody who has gotten to know as many American communities as he has.” Dressed in a khaki vest and armed with a binocular, camera, stopwatch, speed radar gun and measuring tape, Burden appears more like a man on a safari than a folk hero as he flies from city to city and leads mobile workshops pointing out poorly planned streets, intersections and sidewalks and suggesting improvements. For the past century, city streets have been designed to ease automobile traffic flow. But in recent years, sustainability and livability have become buzz words as policymakers seek ways to reduce congestion and pollution and improve the health of residents. They have become increasingly aware that getting more people on the street boosts public safety, raises property value and brings in more businesses. In and around Los Angeles, where cars outnumber people on the streets and freeways and multi-lane roads divide neighborhoods, efforts are under way to reverse the refrain “Nobody Walks In LA” that was sung by the 1980s band Missing Persons. They include a plan to make over Figueroa Street, a major downtown artery for vehicle traffic, for pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders. Burden has made several visits to Southern California, including stops in San Diego and Santa Monica, to conduct walk audits. The concept is simple, and the former National Geographic photographer from Port Townsend, Wash. makes it known he has no special training in street design. “I’m not a traffic engineer, I’m not a plan-

Off the hook? The Planning Commission last week absolved Saint John’s Health Center of building a promised parking structure. With the commission’s approval, the matter will go before the City Council for a final decision. So, this week’s Q-Line question asks:

Do you think the City Council should force Saint John’s to build the structure, or should the commission’s decision stand? Contact qline@smdp.com before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your answers in the weekend edition of the Daily Press. You can also call (310) 458-7737 ext. 102.

ner, I’m not an architect, but I’m trained in how to see and observe and so I sometimes see things that nobody else sees,” Burden said during a February visit to assess this Southern California beach city. At a busy corner on Pacific Coast Highway, he points out cars zooming by at 45 mph, traffic signals that force pedestrians to hurry across the wide boulevard and trash cans and utility boxes that block walkers on the sidewalk. With his measuring tape, he showed that traffic lanes could be slimmed down to accommodate vehicles and add more space for cyclists and pedestrians. Trees could be planted for shade and as a safety buffer from cars. Benches could give the elderly a place to rest during a stroll. Redondo Beach, along with two neighboring cities, are participating in a program that encourages residents to adopt healthier habits. Burden has recommended putting in a bike lane on a heavily used road that leads to Pacific Coast Highway and adding traffic circles and replacing a car lane with a bike lane in several places to slow down vehicles. Some of these ideas, presented by Burden at a statewide workshop several years ago, were adopted by Lancaster, a sprawling suburb of 156,000 north of Los Angeles. The city saw remarkable change last year when its main drag, Lancaster Boulevard, was put on a “road diet.” The city narrowed the 4-lane, nearly mile-long boulevard to two lanes, put in diagonal parking and landscaping in the middle of the street and widened the sidewalks to add trees and outdoor dining areas. Mayor R. Rex Parris came up with the idea of installing speaker systems playing the soothing sounds of bird songs and trickling water to enhance the ambiance. Cars that used to speed through the boulevard at 40- to 50 mph now slow down to 15- and 20 mph, making it safer for people to cross the street and patronize the 30 new businesses that have moved downtown, city planning director Brian Ludicke said. "It was a ghost town down here,” said Maria Elena Grado, who opened her Lemon Leaf Café on the boulevard five years ago. “Now people drive down here just to walk their dogs.” Lancaster is developing a plan that calls for redesigning its streets to accommodate walkers and cyclists by putting in protected bike lanes, roundabouts and other measures to reduce car speeds and improve safety overall. “While these things benefit people who want to bike and walk, it has a lot of benefits for the community beyond that,” Ludicke said. “It does a lot for public health, it does a lot for the aesthetic value of the community. It creates a better place to live, it increases property value.”

NO NUKES: The non-profit organization, Beyond Nuclear, calls nuclear power ‘counterproductive to efforts to address climate change effectively and in time’ and says that funding diverted to nuclear deprives real climate change solutions, like solar, wind and geothermal energy, of essential resources. Pictured: The Three Mile Island nuclear generating station, circa 1979.

Rethinking nuclear power Dear EarthTalk Radioactive rain recently fell in Massachusetts, likely due to Japan’s nuclear mess. Given the threats of radiation, wouldn’t it be madness now to continue with nuclear power? How can President Obama include nukes as part of a “clean energy” agenda?

Bill Mason, Hartford, Conn.

IN THE WAKE OF THE FUKUSHIMA

disaster in Japan, countries around the world that were growing more bullish on nuclear power are now reconsidering their future energy investments. Germany has shut down seven of its oldest nuclear reactors and is conducting safety studies on the remaining facilities; those that don’t make the grade could be closed permanently. Meanwhile, in earthquake-prone Chile some 2,000 demonstrators marched through the capital to protest their government’s enthusiasm for nuclear power. And China, the world’s fastest growing nuclear energy developer, has suspended the approval process on 50 nuclear power plants already on the drawing board, and begun inspections on 13 existing plants. But despite calls to shutter the U.S. nuclear program, President Obama remains committed to the industry despite his stated opposition to it pre-election. In December 2007, Obama told reporters at a campaign stop in Iowa: “Until we can make certain that nuclear power plants are safe...I don’t think that’s the best option,” adding that he was much more keen on solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative fuels. According to investigative journalist Karl Grossman, Obama changed his tune on nuclear as soon as he took office, “talking about ‘safe, clean nuclear power’ and push[ing] for multi-billion dollar taxpayer subsidies for the construction of new nuclear plants.” Right away, Grossman says, Obama brought in nuclear advocate Steven

Chu as energy secretary, and two White House aides that had been “deeply involved with…the utility operating more nuclear power plants than any other in the U.S., Exelon.” Undeterred by the Japanese nuclear disaster, Obama pledged just two weeks following the initial explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi facility that nuclear power should be revived in the U.S., as it provides “electricity without adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.” He added that he requested a comprehensive safety review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to ensure the safety of existing facilities. “We’ll incorporate those conclusions and lessons from Japan in designing and building the next generation of [nuclear] plants,” Obama added. But just because nuclear energy isn’t a fossil fuel doesn’t make it green, given the ongoing risk of radioactivity. Also, reports the non-profit Beyond Nuclear, “Nuclear power is counterproductive to efforts to address climate change effectively and in time…funding diverted to new nuclear power plants deprives real climate change solutions, like solar, wind and geothermal energy, of essential resources.” Indeed, if policymakers were able to divert the hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies to the U.S. nuclear industry every year to solar, wind and geothermal developers, there is no telling how quickly we could innovate our way to sustainable non-polluting energy independence and put the specter of nuclear power that much further in our rearview mirror. But it looks like as long as Obama remains in office, nuclear will remain a big part of our near term energy future, damn the torpedoes.

FROM PAGE 1 a system that uses windows cut out of the socket that allows the user’s tissue to push out of the openings letting the socket clamp down on the bone, creating a tighter fit. Alley said the old method wasted the patient’s energy as the bone moved around inside the socket.Alley’s innovation eliminates that extra motion giving patients a more snug fit. In addition, because of its shape, the socket doesn’t have to be replaced as often as older models, which sometimes need to be re-fit at least once a year. Alley said that since beginning to fit patients in 2007, none of his clients have had to replace their sockets. “It isn’t evolutionary,” Alley said, “it’s revolutionary. “I expect in a decade everyone will be fit this way.” Before Alley can plot a wide commercial release, he has to lock up a commercial partner to make it available to the general public. Thus far, Alley has used his office on Santa Monica Boulevard to fit his personal clients and has licensed the product to two facilities across the country. He expects that growth to continue

once he has a backer for his new product. Alley’s road to creating the High-Fidelity Socket System began during his days as a kinesiology student at UCLA. Because of his background in biomechanics, he soon became interested in working with prosthetics. He was drawn to it because he felt that there was something wrong in the way manufacturers developed sockets. He said that all of the attention was focused on the limb, leaving the socket to remain underdeveloped. He said that the old method didn’t address what he considered a more pressing problem. He wanted to create a device that would fit better, longer and more comfortably. All that led to the beginning of a project that has come a long way since its early days in 2007. That work is paying off in the form of patient testimonials. “I found it difficult to participate in my favorite sport, rowing, because of my elbow prosthesis would slip off and I would lose grip of the oar,” patient Michael Hart said. “But after being fit with the HiFi interface, I was able to rejoin my crew. “It feels more like a part of my body.” daniela@smdp.com

We have you covered “nexus” for tax-collection purposes. Amazon, with billions in annual revenue, only collects taxes on sales to five states. California is not among them. The tax legislation adds several new ways to define a nexus for tax collection. One approach requires online sellers to collect tax if they have affiliates in California that refer shoppers to their site. Similar efforts in other states generated opposition because online retailers responded by severing relationships with in-state affiliates, often small businesses. Amazon has said it would do the same in California. In a more novel approach, the bill requires an online retailer to collect the tax if it has sister companies in California, such as a marketing arm or product developer. Even backers of that approach expect it will be challenged in court if approved.

ONLINE FROM PAGE 1 online tax bill, were passed but not sent to the governor. The intent is to capture some of the estimated $1.1 billion California is owed each year in “use tax” but never collects. The use tax is charged on purchases from out-of-state sellers for goods to be used in California. It is levied at the same 8.25 percent rate as the base state and local sales tax. California retailers must collect sales tax, but customers are expected to report and pay use tax directly to the state. Many don’t. Much of the uncollected use taxes are for Internet sales by retailers with no physical store in California that could be used as a

organic cosmetic companies such as Kiss My Face, Alliance Boots and others violated the California Organic Products Act of 2003, which mandated the 70 percent rule. Neither company returned a phone call. Executive Director Michael Green said the center purchased dozens of the products earlier this year. He said a simple reading of the ingredients list on the back of many products revealed they fell short of meeting the 70 percent threshold. “For years, organic advocates have called on personal care companies to fix their improper ‘organic’ labels, but our recent purchasing shows the industry is still rife with unsubstantiated organic claims,” Green said. The center wants to encourage companies to use organic ingredients, and ensure that consumers can trust organic labels to be meaningful and consistent, he said. The federal government doesn’t have organic labeling rules for cosmetic products. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved California standards.

There has been growing confusion and debate over what constitutes organic and a growing number of false labeling lawsuits. The center previously sued organic heavyweight Hain Celestial Group Inc. in May, claiming its Jason and Avalon Organics brands were mislabeled. Other Hain brands were included in the lawsuit filed Thursday. A company representative didn’t return a call seeking comment. Legal disputes over organic labeling initially targeted food growers in 2007. The next year, cosmetic products claiming to have organic ingredients were targeted. None of those lawsuits have been resolved. In the latest action, the Oakland-based center alleges in its lawsuit that popular

With school letting out for the summer, Warner Bros. executives hope the movie will draw teenagers in on the weekdays. “The mid-weeks are going to tell the tale of the movie,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner. If “Green Lantern” does good business come Monday, “then all bets are off and we’re back in the game.” Likewise, 20th Century Fox is counting on good holdover business for “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” a children’s book adaptation that stars Carrey as a neglectful dad who learns the value of family ties after he inherits half a dozen pesky penguins. "It’s a heartwarming PG comedy that everybody can go see,” said Fox distribution executive Bert Livingston. “There’s humor for adults in there, and it’s got penguins. People love penguins.” In narrower release, Freddie Highmore

and Emma Roberts’ teen romance “The Art of Getting By” flopped with a debut of just $700,000. Released by Fox Searchlight, “The Art of Getting By” played in 610 theaters and averaged a dismal $1,148 a cinema. That compared to a $13,806 average in 3,816 theaters for “Green Lantern” and $5,451 in 3,339 cinemas for “Mr. Popper’s Penguins.” The Warner Bros. sequel “The Hangover Part II” pulled in $9.6 million domestically and $21.4 million overseas to raise its worldwide total to $488 million. That topped the $468 million global haul of 2009’s “The Hangover.” Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” padded its lead as the biggest worldwide box-office draw released this year. The movie took in $6.2 million domestically and $25.9 million internationally to lift its total to $952.2 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

SHEPARD

■ A 53-year-old man with failing eyesight and who had recently undergone intestinal surgery told Sonoma, Calif., police that on Sunday afternoon, May 1, a woman had come to his home and instructed him to drop his pants and get face-down on the bed so that she could administer an enema. He said he assumed his doctor had sent her and thus complied, and it was over in two minutes, and she was gone. The doctor later said he had no idea who the woman was. (In the 1970s, in the Champaign, Ill., area, Michael Kenyon operated similarly as the "Illinois Enema Bandit" -- and inspired the late Frank Zappa's "Illinois Enema Bandit Blues.") ■ Several funeral homes in the United States have drive-thru windows to serve rushed mourners or those stressed by the parlor experience. "Not quite as emotional," said one visitor to the Robert L. Adams Mortuary in Compton, Calif., referring to the need not to linger in the queue of bereaved, idling motorists. The Adams facility was even more popular during the peak of gang murders in the area, according to an April Los Angeles Times report, because the drive-thru window's bulletproof glass rendered unnecessary the precarious indoor service in which gangbangers tried to further desecrate late rivals' corpses.
