Witnesses rushed to the aid of Nell Theobald, a model held in the toothy grip of a 223-pound lion until the lion’s jaws were pried open, at a BMW auto show press preview. Ms. Theobald’s woes continued after the mauling — although doctors saved her leg intact, the $3 million lawsuit she filed was settled, to her disappointment, for $250,000. Later, she became a predator of sorts herself, stalking a Swedish opera singer for nearly 10 years. Ms. Theobald committed suicide in 1977, asking that her ashes be scattered on the singer’s garden in Sweden.

"The promise of the Internet was that it would liberate people and bolster democracy, but it has become a tool for suppression and control. In fact, it is one of the most powerful instruments of control ever invented. The most essential challenge we face today is related to the real effect of the Internet. Will it impart power to people and liberate them, or will it impart more strength to the centers of power and help them oversee, control and suppress the population? That is the struggle of our generation, and it has yet to be decided."
"Film noir has a mood that everyone can feel. It’s people in trouble, at night, with a little bit of wind and the right kind of music. It’s a beautiful thing."
