Tale of the tape

Tale of the tape

Better lay off the doughnuts: Your waistline is a more accurate indicator of your cardio-vascular health than your body-mass index, some doctors now say. The rule of thumb is that your waistline should measure no more than half your height.

However, Dr. Buzz proposes an even more superior indicator: How closely your torso resembles that of Homer Simpson.

Farm to market: This is excellent news for strawberry lovers: Local farmers report a bumper crop, including the area's signature strawberry, the uber-delicious Shuksan variety.

In the face of such a bounty, anyone who would still choose those plastic-wrapped frauds from California might as well join Edward Snowden in Moscow, or wherever he is now (Page A6).

I Love L.A.: A newly renovated billion-dollar terminal at Los Angeles International Airport is designed to be a microcosm of the City of Angels, including a lineup of duty-free Rodeo Drive-style shops.

The new airport will be so much like L.A., in fact, that the journey to baggage claim from the arrival gates will require a 90-minute car trip in gridlocked traffic.
