How Michael Ovitz shifted Hollywood's balance of power
09/25/2018 4:52pm

"Jurassic Park," "Shindler’s List," "Rain Man" and "Ghostbusters" are all movies that might never have been made were it not for a guy named Michael Ovitz. He grew up over the hills from Hollywood in the San Fernando Valley, started working in the entertainment business giving studio tours on Universal's back lot while he was still in high school and eventually became one of the most powerful people in Hollywood.

Chicago has dominated the headlines in recent years, but things are even worse in St. Louis and Baltimore, where murder rates were on the order of 10 times the national average. Certain states fly high above the mean, too. As New Orleans-based crime statistics analyst Jeff Asher tweeted Monday, Louisiana's murder rate leads the pack even if
