But a good many of these criminals have some answering to do, as in the cases of Americans Alann Steen and Joseph Cicippio.

December 8, 1991
Many ballet companies contribute yearly to the 99-year-old tradition of “The Nutcracker,” the most popular of dances and holiday events.

EX-CIA OPERATIVE SERVES UP SOME DELIGHTS
December 8, 1991
For partisans of four-to-the-bar, swingin’ mainstream jazz, one need look no further than the bouncy delights currently being served by Hank O’Neal’s New York-based Chiaroscuro Records. Indeed, the chronicle of O’Neal, a former CIA operative with an unquenchable penchant for New York’s finest foot-tappin’ improvisors, will soon be available in book form as “The Chiaroscuro Story.” For the moment, though, the music’s the thing, and a glorious thing at that with the likes of Clark Terry and Milt Hiton cookin’ up a storm.

That can mean establishing a living will or designating someone to make medical decisions for the patient if he or she becomes too ill to make those decisions alone.
