• I have opted, for this pre-Easter period, not to mindlessly eat like a six-year-old raised by wolves, who is then suddenly deposited on the set of Emeril Live during Mardi Gras Open House.   Have you ever given up anything for Lent? What might one typically give up in attempting to identify more deeply with Christ's privation and temptation in the wilderness? Chocolate, perhaps? "Reality" TV? Alcohol? Tobacco? Coffee? Internet mania? Guitar Hero? Actually, I am determined to undertake an endeavor possibly more challenging than all these---for me anyway: I have decided to give up nutritional stupidity for Lent. Yes, I have opted, for this pre-Easter period, not to eat like a six-year-old raised by wolves, who is then suddenly deposited onto the set of

  • "You can have all sorts of philosophical discussions on life, the universe, and everything, but if someone's beating your face in, you're pretty much focused on the present moment." ---Tony Page Tony Page delivers. This fact is what has made him an American Taekwondo Association World Champion, and holder of over a hundred other ATA regional and national titles.

What I won't do to bring you ideas! Of course it was predictable---and amazingly evident, in some cases---that there were people with no intention of divulging, to a possible nutcase with a pad and pen at the ready, their plans for the most romantic day on the calendar. But some of those were among the most charming people I met on my roving-girl-reporter gig that afternoon! Here's how Valentine's Day is shaping up
