It was a rainy night at Number One Valley Sun Lane. The doors were locked. Computers flickered throughout the newsroom. Miss Audrey Hepburn, our black Lab-chow mix, dozed in the shadows while I leafed through a box of old Los Angeles Times clippings about Howard Hughes. Why was I doing this? A mysterious package had arrived, full of clippings about “the millionaire sportsman.” The La Cañada connection? I had no idea. The clippings concerned Howard Hughes. One Saturday night in July 1936, Hughes crashed his brand new Ford Phaeton into an innocent pedestrian.

  Habeas corpus is Latin for "You should have the body." As an avid NPR listener, I recall hearing Nina Totenburg use this phrase umpteen times even before September 11, 2001. To be perfectly honest, I had no clue what it meant. The laws of chemistry were much more important to me — that is until October 17 of this year. If you¹re curious about what happened on October 17, or still in the dark (ages) about this "body business," or both, I highly recommend Jeffrey Toobin¹s commentary in the Dec. 4 issue of The New Yorker.

On Dec. 8, 1985, an intentionally-set fire destroyed a small retail shop in the garment district in downtown Los Angeles. One person was killed, and Rosie Sanchez, a single mother of four, was charged and convicted of first-degree murder. Twenty-four years later, Jenny Shanley Farrell, a 1999 La Cañada High School graduate and second year student at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, is trying to secure parole for Sanchez, who she believes was falsely convicted.
