A Broward County circuit judge delivered a blistering, arm-waving, face-palming, tongue-lashing to a frail, out-of-breath woman - pushed into court in a wheelchair - who was facing misdemeanor charges following a family feud.

The courtroom rant last Sunday was so over the top that Broward's elected public defender, Howard Finkelstein, demanded that Judge Merrilee Ehrlich be banned from the criminal courthouse.

A neo-Nazi march is scheduled for Saturday in the small Georgia city of Newnan, about 40 miles southwest of Atlanta. Anti-fascist counter-protesters are expected as well, and a local church will hold an interfaith service to promote "peace and unity" during the rally. To prepare for the event, local shopkeepers have removed anything that could be moved or thrown in public spaces, and many will not open for business to decrease opportunities for conflict.

There was never a shortage of waify muses wandering through Paris in the Sixties and Seventies, but Loulou de la Falaise always stood apart from the rest. Even when she was in her fifties, the New Yorker declared her to have "always been the quintessential Rive Gauche haute bohémienne." Born Louise Vava Lucia Henriette Le Bailly de La Falaise, in England, to a count and a former model—the latter of whom the photographer Cecil Beaton famously said was the only English woman he knew who could be "really chic in really hideous clothes"—de la Falaise was part of high society. But she was also always a hard worker. After becoming a model, designer, and editor in New York, which led her to meet Yves Saint Laurent , she moved to Paris in the early Seventies to join the YSL couture team and become director of accessories. Along the way, she became a core member of his original, party-hard crew .
