Tobacco Growed


They're reporting in Charlotte that Adam Morrison slips in a pinch between his cheek and gum after every game and lights up the cancer sticks. Let's see ... the Bobcats play in North Carolina, right? So marketing tie-ins are a possibility. And we all know how smoking stunts the growth of ... facial hair. But after a season of 38 percent shooting from the floor, we'd want something to calm the nerves post-game, too.





Think Pink


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you can learn more about breast cancer screening, treatment and research by watching any of the 40 programs running throughout the month on Comcast's On Demand cable service. If you have digital cable TV service, just order up the program you want from Comcast and watch free of additional charge. In case you're wondering why you should care, consider this: About 180,000 women (and about 1,800 men) each year are diagnosed with breast cancer in this country; about 42,000 die from the disease annually. Early detection is key to survival.





Irresponsible Media


If the MSM are run by corporate conglomerates, then our supposedly free press isn't protecting democracy but undermining it. Come watch a free documentary, Rich Media, Poor Democracy, next Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7 pm at the Magic Lantern, and then join the discussion afterwards. Visit www.nwresponsiblemedia.org or call 323-3578.





The Slip Jig Is Up


Step dancing, slip jigs, and pretty Irish lasses pounding the floor with "fast-moving, dead-accurate hard-shoe dancing" -- get in touch with your Irish heritage (or pretend you have one) at the Bing on Friday night at 7 pm, when the Haran Irish Dancers will perform with the Celtic Nots. Tickets: $15. Write [email protected] or call 844-1119.

    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.
