Empire State now safe from art gallery moochers

More child-proofing in the red-hot center of American culture: You can get arrested for serving wine at an art gallery opening. Police in East Hampton, N.Y. cuffed and booked 67-year-old gallery owner Ruth Kalb (alias "Ruth Vered") on charges of serving alcohol without a license over the Memorial Day vacation. Partygoers, left to confront, stone-cold sober, an exhibition of photography by movie stars, were shocked.
