George Clooney slams story of in-law rift over religion

George Clooney, whose love life has been well chronicled through the years on red carpets and in paparazzi shots, rarely addresses details about his personal relationships.

He isn't one to kiss and tell. He hasn't even officially acknowledged that he's engaged to glamorous international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, as has been reported since April.

But he's making an exception now.

Clooney, 53, is refuting a Daily Mail story that said Baria Alamuddin, his future mother-in-law, is against the impending marriage for religious reasons.

Safety advocate takes on GM spinners

 | 

Amid the dark rot of malfeasance at the core of General Motors' long and sorry history of vehicle recalls stands Louis Lombardo.

He works from a small canvas, but his portraits are large of a company whose decades of recalls of millions of cars defy accurate recalling.

Lombardo is everything GM is not: conscientious, transparent and caring.
