After ruling, vouchers still face long road (06/28/02)
Lawmakers in eight states are poised to push school voucher legislation, now that the Supreme Court has ruled that these programs do not violate the Constitution's requirement of separation of church and state.

GENEVA -- Scientists have a "major concern" that a substance in certain high-carbohydrate foods -- such as french fries and potato chips -- may cause cancer, they said Thursday after a three-day U.N.-sponsored conference on the subject.

Playing tag-free ESPN's Jim Caple didn't take kindly to word that a California elementary school has banned the playground game of tag and said that it needs to be played only under supervision of teachers.

Duct tape can't cure every woe (06/28/02)
During a tour this week of the new Central High School building, I was pleased to see workers, who are hurrying to finish the $20 million project, using plenty of duct tape. Don't worry. The building isn't being held together with duct tape. But several finishing processes are getting help from duct tape. After all, there are only so many hands available to hold things in place...
Everybody's a critic - 'Minority Report' (06/28/02)
H "Minority Report" is an action movie that is long, drawn out and not worth wasting your time going to, unless you want to spend the first hour figuring out what the movie is supposed to be about (Tom Cruise stopping future murders before they happen), the second hour being completely overwhelmed by too many visual effects and the last half hour just waiting for the movie to be over...

Everybody's a critic - 'Minority Report' (06/28/02)
H 1/2 You don't have to be Miss Cleo to figure out where this movie is going -- it is so predictable. This Orwellian sci-fi "thriller" is actually more of a "yawner." Tom Cruise plays futuristic cop John Anderton who uses psychic readings of the future to identify and arrest criminals before they actually commit their crimes -- talk about profiling! Of course, it is not long before Anderton finds himself on the run charged with the future murder of a man he has never even met...

TV weathercasters made in Mississippi (06/28/02)

A life of alarm clocks, naps and acting like a nerd (06/28/02)
HURON, Ohio -- Two weeks and the work never stops. This last week has consisted of adapting to the real routine of the Huron Playhouse: that is, learning to function on five to six hours of sleep and a few power naps a day with a couple of 15-minute meals in the interim. On average, I spend about six hours in rehearsal a day; sometimes nine...
Everybody's a critic - 'Minority Report' (06/28/02)
HHHH Thousands of tiny marching feet, all chanting "We Love Tom! We Love Tom!" Oh no, it's the attack of the Rosie O'Donnell clones! Can't resist. I love Tom. I love Steven. I love Industrial Light and Magic. Let's face it, this is a good old summer blockbuster movie (which I love), but I don't think this is a good movie for everyone. This is a great date movie. Gasp! Am I recommending a testosterone-driven action flick test marketed by 18-to-30-year-old males to women? I am...
