Gentlemen, remember that Mr. Reeves is primarily action eye candy; his acting abilities are secondary. I wish him well with his directorial debut.

Quite a pair of tremors early this morning in Nishinomiya. Glad my keitai emergency alarm woke me up just moments before I felt the first one. Glad that from the reports I've seen on TV, that the damage seems to just be structural. Reminds that I really need to tighten up my emergency preparedness plan...And, yes, please be safe, everyone.

As a baby boomer growing up in California, I rushed home after school to catch the Mickey Mouse Club on TV and Annette was always my favorite. Sadly a bit of my childhood died with her. Enjoy this video clip from her classic movie "Beach Blanket Bingo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ngTd7SPFCw

You shouldn't underestimate Ms.Kennedy, an accomplished author, attorney, and editor in her own right. She's NOT just another "blonde" celebrity.

Mr. Redford is one of my all-time favorite actors. And I support his politics. His Twilight Zone episode is a classic.

I'm surprised that McDonald's didn't roll out this new green maccha and Oreo-flavored McFlurry and milkshake in time for St. Patrick's Day. Missed a very good sales opportunity the little leprechaun in me thinks.

I agree with other posters - Why are parents taking kids to a concert on a school night? They have no basis for complaining!

What a bunch of nay sayers. I think more coverage is a very good thing for the worldwide game of baseball. I hope folks do tune in and watch, especially when the Giants play my current hometown favorites, the Hanshin Tigers!

I'd hardly call these "islands". Not even habitable. "Outcroppings" really describes them much better. Take a look: http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=mcafee&p=Senkaku+%2B+pictures

The man was described as being in his 30s.
The man was described as being in his 30s.
What's the basis for this eye witness account, given that the culprit was wearing sunglasses, a face mask, and a knit cap? He must have flashed his ID at some point so that his approximate age could be duly noted.
