“A CD of her favorite hymns is playing in her room. So thankful for my sister, Dorothy, and the nurses who have been caring for her. I will cherish these moments I have with mom. Then focus on what is ahead of me undergoing a bone-marrow transplant.”

‘Starsky & Hutch’ actor fighting marijuana charge
The actor who played David Starsky in the 1970s police drama “Starsky & Hutch” is fighting a drug charge in Kentucky for what he says is medical marijuana from California.
The Daily News in Bowling Green, Ky., reports an attorney entered a not guilty plea on Thursday on behalf of 69-year-old Paul Michael Glaser of Venice, Calif.
Bowling Green police charged Mr. Glaser with possession of marijuana and a pipe on May 10, hours after he read an excerpt of his young adult novel, “Chrystallia and the Source of Light,” to students at a middle school.
According to a police citation, Mr. Glaser said he had medical marijuana prescribed to him in California.
He was arrested after an anonymous call to police reported that a man was smoking marijuana in a hotel.
