Watch Bob-E01A

It's the one, the only: "A Christmas Story." If you haven't already seen it, turn on the TV on Christmas day and you soon will. Directed by Bob Clark and based on the anecdotes of Jean Shepherd as published in the 1968 book "In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash." The movie details the exploits of young Ralphie Parker and his perpetual quest for a Red Ryder BB gun. The film is an all-you-eat buffet of iconic scenes, which helps explain its repeat "watchability."

Have you ever wondered how Santa is able to deliver all those presents on Christmas Eve? To find out, watch the animated flick "Arthur Christmas," which takes viewers behind the scenes of Santa's operation. The movie also deals with Santa's goofy son, Arthur, who makes it his mission to get a misplaced gift back to where it belongs.

Why She's Here: Pure athleticism. One of the smoothest, most accomplished do-it-all talents in our area. Few players were more fun to watch in transition, or better finishers around the basket. Accepting Frericks, she might have the best long range potential on this list.

Why She's Here: Can't help myself. I am a sucker for a shot blocker. And Miss Grossman might be the most unique I've ever seen. She's 5'9" and a sophomore...and she's the area's answer to Anthony Davis (minus the uni-brow) Say it with me slowly: 8.2 blocks per game? Eight games of double digit blocks. 20 swats alone against Centralia? Stellar timing/great hops are the secret. She's far from a finished product and she needs to get a little stronger in the paint holding her ground for rebounds, but what a fun kid to watch going forward.

Rich, talk about mincing words! How about if I say,"People who think like Rich Howard are complete idiots." Is thatOK? I am not saying you are an idiot, after all. If you actuallyread what I wrote, you will see that I did not in any way "mincewords and lead people to believe I (Rich) said YOU spit on vets."And where are you getting this from, "flip-floppingpeacenik/warriors like John." When did I ever present myself aseither of these? You have been watching too much propaganda on FoxTV. I don't know where you got the idea that I had to respond toevery one of your inane pronouncements either. Look, Rich, you'regoing to vote for Bush unless he gets caught in bed with MichaelJackson and even then you'll blame it on Clinton. You can ramble onall you want, but I agree with Jan from Taunton, this is gettingboring.

Democrats, Republicans, left-wingers, right-wingers.These labels are part of the reason why I avoid any involvementwith the US political system. A political party affiliation shouldnot precede a candidate's ideas. Individuals have ideas, notgroups. In the beginning, a candidate's ideas would be endorsed bya group, organization or political party. The ideas would give theparty purpose. Now it's the other way around. When one affiliateswith a group, organization or political party, they inevitably takeon all of those associated labels that go with it. ALL democratsare for raising taxes, ALL republicans are for cutting taxes, ALLright-wingers are rich white fundamentalist Christian fanatics, ALLleft-wingers are minority special interest tree-huggingabortionists. The two-party system of government is like aperpetual duel that has both combatants standing in their tracksstaring at each other, while the audience (taxpayers) wait andwatch for something good to happen, hoping that one or the otherwill remember who they are representing and for what purpose. WhenI called a local politician to voice my concern about schoolspending practices, although subtle, eventually the subject of myparty affiliation came up in the conversation. I asked what thathad to do with my concerns, for which I was told "nothing," andthat he just wanted to know "who he was talking to." It's becausethe organization is more important to the official than the person.Bush, Kerry, Cheney, Edwards. Do any of them have good ideas thatcan help the citizens of this country? That's all I careabout.

Southern trend? No, parental irresponsibility is not a"regional" issue. I've dealt with it right here in New England. Toomany inexperienced (dumb?) parents are trying to be their kid'sfriend instead of setting boundaries and teaching them thedifference between right and wrong. It's appalling (and sad) thatmany kids are telling their parents what to do, rather than theother way around. One kid (age 16) was bragging that she hadconvinced her parents to chaperone a drinking party at their houseso that all the kids would be supervised (while getting drunk?) andnot have to go drink in the cemetery! She explained to us that herparents were "totally cool" with anything she wanted to do. Well,so much for THAT friend! BYE! Another mother reasoned that if herdaughter and the daughter's boyfriend slept in separate rooms, thatthere was nothing wrong with him sleeping over EVERY WEEKEND.That's when I asked for a show of hands in the room of thosepresent who had ever been a teenage boy. After I was the only onethat raised my hand, I went on to explain some of the devious (andquite ingenious) plans that I had orchestrated throughout my highschool years for the sole purpose of getting a girl alone. Hello?What do these parents think, that these kids are doing right afterthe lights go out? I know that "kids will be kids" and mine are noexception, but if they choose to "break the rules" they will haveto work their careful plans around our constant watch! Good luckand, whatever you do, don't get caught! The price to pay will bemuch higher than anything you could imagine.

Hi Rich, I have no opinions today, only heartache tohear that another family has to be put through this nightmare. Godhas his reasons, whether to test our strength or hers, but nomatter what it hurts very much to watch her go through this. I havelit a candle at LaSallette Shrine and have spoken to one of thepriests there. Please know that we are all praying for a long lifeand that her spirits will always be high and her smile always wide.God bless your family.

Just read Gloria LaBounty's story about the gay familything. I have decided that I will keep fighting against thisgarbage, but am I fighting a losing battle? What the hell ishappening to us? Where do these sick ideas come from? How can somany of you think this stuff is OK? I truly hope I am not in alosing fight but it looks ominous. Well, you know how I feel anywayand the slams will come but I don't care. I hope you all wake upbefore it it too late,I really do. God bless you. He iswatching.

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin, gross and mouthycomedian of the '70s and '80s, could write something so veryeloquent, and so very appropriate about "life and it'ssignificance." What follows is a wonderful message from GeorgeCarlin (published after his wife's recent death): "The paradox ofour time in history is that we have taller buildings and shortertempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger housesand smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We havemore degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment,more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh toolittle, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up tootired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. Wehave multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talktoo much, love too seldom and hate too often. We've learned how tomake a living, but not a life. We've added years to life but notlife to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, buthave trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. Weconquered outer space but not inner space. We've done largerthings, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, butpolluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less.We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers tohold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but wecommunicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods andslow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits andshallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but moredivorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are the days ofquick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one-nightstands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer,to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroomwindow, and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology canbring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose to sharethis insight, or to just hit delete. Remember, spend some of yourtime with loved ones, because they are not going to be aroundforever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up at youin awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave yourside. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, becausethat is the only treasure you can give with your heart and itdoesn't cost a cent. Remember to say, "I love you" to your partnerand your loved ones, but most of all to mean it. A kiss and anembrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment, for someday thatperson will not be there again. Give time to love, give time tospeak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by themoments that take our breath away.

It scares me to think that we are too busy on our cellphones and Web sites and watching TV to read a little history. Ifwe don't learn from history we will be forced to relive it. I don'tremember who said that, but he is right. As far as everyone inFlorida being old and disagreeable, that is not so. Besides, a lotof elderly people who live in Florida have spent their livesraising kids, paying taxes, voting and trying to make ends meet ina world where every time you get a raise the government takes itaway. They have a right to be disagreeable! Leave the elderlyalone! You'll be there someday, too!! 041b061a72
