Rocky Lang: Sleazy Legal
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Did you ever imagine getting a divorce was more difficult than the marriage that got you there? Well, it happened to me. After a decade of darkness with the wife of the new millennium, the two of us agreed that our lives were worth saving and in order to continue to exist we needed to get away from each other. Agreeing that it made no sense to pay expensive attorneys, we settled our own affairs and decided to take the cheap way out: a paralegal service that would file the divorce papers for a fee and we would be finished. Slam dunk baby! My marriage wasn't going into overtime -- I was ending the game. Swish! Being the smart sophisticated writer that I am, I spied a paralegal service on the boulevard as I listened to an oldies station on the radio. It was going to be easy, fast and cheap. As if the heavens opened up, the light shown down on this little storefront that I will forever call: Sleazy Legal. God was taking me to the Promised Land; the avenue from hell leading ...

Steve Karras: Groucho Gave Secretary High Marx: Author Steve Stoliar Recalls His Days as Groucho Marx's Secretary
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Steve Stoliar and Groucho Marx In January 1974, a 19-year-old UCLA student named Steve Stoliar started The Committee for the Rerelease of Animal Crackers to pressure Universal Studios into releasing the Marx Brothers' 1930 black-and-white film, which had been in copyright limbo for at least two decades. Executives at Universal were more concerned with their recent releases, Airport 75 and Earthquake, than they were in untangling the legal knots necessary to re-release a 44-year-old movie. "I probably discovered the Marx Brothers when I was in high school and I wondered where they had been hiding all my life," Steve Stoliar said in a recent interview with us. "They were such a wonderful blend of physical comedy and clever wordplay -- either Groucho's wordplay or Chico's mangling of the language." Marx mania swept college campuses in the late '60s and early '70s. Their anarchic shenanigans resonated with baby boomers who weren't even alive when the Marx Brothers wer ...

Stanley K. Sheinbaum: Hooray for Hollywood
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Los Angeles-based Stanley K. Sheinbaum, was, in his "younger years," referred to as the head of the Malibu Mafia, a self-styled group of L.A. Westside liberals active in Democratic politics which included his wife, Betty Warner Shainbaum. He was also a key player in the original negotiations with then-Palestinian President Yasser Arafat -- negotiations that eventually lead to the Camp David Agreements. The following is a compilation taken from his recently published memoir, Stanley K. Sheinbaum: A 20th Century Knight's Quest for Peace, Civil Liberties and Economic Justice. In this compilation, Sheinbaum describes how he first became involved with the Malibu Mafia through the "Pentagon Papers" Trial of Daniel Ellsberg. When I first became involved with fund raising for the Daniel Ellsberg trial and the Pentagon Papers, I was very upbeat. Then, when the trial was moved to Los Angeles, I had a problem because I needed to raise a lot of money and I didn't really know that many ...
