Life is not fair. If it were, there would be no need for headwaiters in restaurants. Or shampoos that build body into your hair. Or pantyhose with control tops.And certainly, if life were fair, there would be no such thing as coach class on airline flights. Or assertiveness training workshops.But, alas, life is not fair.I have known this, of course, for a very long time. In fact, I date such knowledge back to my discovery at the age of 6 that such a thing as naturally curly hair existed.And that I did not have it.Fortunately, however, I am not the sort of person who dwells on life's unfairnesses.

Before the sun rose yesterday, members of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign team were confronted with the kind of attack that most infuriates them: one questioning the character of Clinton and her husband. To make matters worse, it came from David Geffen, the Hollywood producer who was once a big supporter of the Clintons but is now backing Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination.

America's only national tour of the hugely successful musical Cats - the 25th-anniversary edition - lands on its feet at the Hippodrome Theatre tonight for a run of eight performances. Though The Phantom of the Opera (also by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber) broke its record just last night to become the longest-running production in Broadway history, there's no denying the lion-sized paw prints Cats has left on the cultural landscape. The story of a group of felines who congregate in a junkyard to choose one cat to be born again, Cats was unique, among other things, for its gigantic props, its use of song and dance in every scene, its less-than-labyrinthine plot, its expansion of the play into the aisles and its status as progenitor of such "megamusicals" as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and The Lion King.

This Sunday, you'll probably feel a bit jealous of the svelte figures of Hollywood's first ladies - Cate Blanchett, Annette Bening, Hilary Swank - as they swan along on the Kodak Theatre's red carpet before the 77th Annual Academy Awards. Admit it. Doesn't even the idea of a size 2 make you blue? If so, don't blame California dessert chef and plus-size model Whitney Dineen. She's doing her best to, well, even the scales. "Americans are getting bigger and bigger, but actors are getting skinnier and skinnier.

Tribune Co., owner of The Sun and Los Angeles Times, delayed until next year a decision on whether to sell all or part of the company. A board of directors committee reviewing the company's alternatives will make a recommendation to the panel in the first quarter of 2007, Tribune said in a statement yesterday. Tribune, the second-largest U.S. newspaper publisher, had planned to make a decision by the end of the year. The delay could signal that Chief Executive Officer Dennis J. FitzSimons and other directors are awaiting a higher offer after initial bids from private equity firms came in too low. "This process has generated strong interest from a number of parties," FitzSimons said in the statement.
