JOHN DEPKO Los Angeles at night has never looked as good as it does in "Collateral," Michael Mann's latest crime thriller. He's been known for stunning visuals and great music ever since his "Miami Vice" days. But Mann adds a dimension in his feature films that's lacking in most other action flicks. He gives serious depth and complexity to characters that would only be cardboard cutouts in the hands of a lesser director. In "Thief," "Manhunter" and "Heat," Mann gave a close examination of troubled souls operating on the darkest fringes of society and sanity.

Newport Beach artist Michael Schofield will be investigated for possible grand theft after allegedly using a Pablo Picasso drawing that did not belong to him as collateral for a $40,000 loan from real estate broker Jeff Stokes, authorities said Friday. Schofield, 60, is an artist with paintings listed on several art websites. He allegedly told Stokes he was using his $40,000 to buy artwork and gave him the Picasso as collateral, Stokes said. Schofield was supposed to sell it to a soon-to-open auction house and then repay Stokes his money plus interest, Stokes said.

The arraignment for a Newport Beach painter charged with conning a man out of more than $40,000 by using a Picasso sketch as collateral has been pushed back to Wednesday, prosecutors said. Local artist Michael Schofield, 60, is charged with two felony counts of grand theft and one felony count of passing a check with insufficient funds. Police began investigating Schofield in mid-January after a local real estate broker told police Schofield had not paid him back a $40,000 loan plus interest due months earlier, authorities said.

Mark my words, 2009 in will go down as the year of the bailouts and no matter what anyone says or does there will be no way to stop the flood of handouts that are about to happen.

When I was a judge on the mental health calendar, one of my happiest collateral duties was to officiate over three adoptions almost every morning, and I tried to make them the truly special occasions that they were. So, among other things, if there were grandparents in attendance, I had them raise their hands and be sworn, right along with the parents, saying that they had duties to perform as well. Then after complying with the law and having the parents swear to support the children and treat them just as if they were their natural birth children, I also figuratively had the grandparents swear that they would spoil the grandchildren.
