A Habit To Cry On

If Oprah won't hear your confession on national TV, then get a nun to hear Oprah's. At least that's what those wild and crazy Gonzaga guys Luke Barats and Joe Bereta did when they filmed Sister Patricia Proctor of Spokane's Franciscan Monastery of St. Clare hawking her new book on the sacrament of reconciliation while chatting with a cardboard cutout of that uppity Winfrey woman. To see it for yourself, go to and search for "Confession101" -- and while you're at it, check out Sister Patricia's and

Eighty-One Years

Friday's theater dedication brought suggestions that we ought to call the place "The Crosby," but at such notions we scoff. There's only one name suitable for the erstwhile Met: Da Bing.

As for Kathryn Crosby's cabaret show, while there was an element of Sunset Boulevard about the affair, the power of watching her watch herself perform on the big screen with Bing can't be denied. Her husband had performed on that very stage 81 years before.

Donations Need To Bubble

Four-month-old Caden Atchley lacks any immune system and has the so-called "bubble boy syndrome."

Visit, click on "Visit," and fill in Caden's name.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
