VETERANS DAY: Armed Liberal salutes the troops at Winds Of Change; The Smithsonian Museum of American History opens The Price of Freedon: Americans at War.


WOI-TV, among other ABC affiliates, declines to air Saving Private Ryan tonight, citing fear of FCC indecency charges. Also airing tonight: Last Letters Home, a documentary in which people who've lost a son, daughter, sibling or spouse in Iraq remember their loved ones and read from their letters home. It's on HBO, but most cable systems will be offering it for free.


COL. SIMON WEST has a Basic Instinct moment sitting next to the Queen.


FUN WITH LIGHTERS: How to modify an ordinary cigarette lighter to produce a giant ball of flaming molten death.


BARBARA BUSH (the younger): Friend Of Will?

NEVER COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU spotlights worthy films that just didn't get much attention the first time around. For those who don't bother to click through, note that High Fidelity and Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey make the cut.

SOMETHING AWFUL reviews music magazines. And rightly so.

MARK A. R. KLEIMAN is writing about "test-doping," the practice of taking stimulants to improve one's scores on standardized tests like the SAT.

ABBA: displaying more integrity than most old bands.

QOTD:"Men judge generally more by the eye than by the hand, for everyone can see and few can feel. Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are." -- Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince (courtesy of Pejman)

SCRAMJET: NASA shoots for an engine capable of propelling a craft at Mach 10; it could carry an airplane from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., in about 20 minutes.

I HAVE THAT ON VINYL has just debuted, but seems like it has potential.

ZELL MILLER TAKES ON MAUREEN DOWD: I'm reminded of one of my favorite Craig O'Neill stories. In this context, the question is: "If I called you some highbrow hussy from New York City, and you could only deny one of those, which would it be?"

Sylvia's Engagement Update   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

We now have some info about Sylvia's lucky fiancee. He's 32 years old and, like Sylvia, previously married. Indeed, marriage will make Sylvia a step-mom to a four year old daughter!

The couple met during Sylvia's six-week sabbatical from work, at B.B. King's Blues Club in Memphis, which is located right o­n Beale Street.

When might the ceremony take place? The current thinking seems to center around late 2006, perhaps o­n the anniversary of their first meeting [and the women all say "awwww..."]. That's plenty of time to save up for a wedding gift. I wonder whether a couple can register here... or even here?
