Mr. Cahn, you stated in Monday's Chronicle-Independent that you want to hold off judgment of George Zimmerman till after a trial. It seems, in my opinion, that you have already tried him. You make comments about what was said over the phone and that you can hear Zimmerman moving and cocking his pistol. Can you to tell which way he was headed or what type of pistol was used by listening to sound over the phone? I have not heard what type of pistol was used; have you?

Summit carved out one of the most incredible records of any coach in any sport, finishing her career after 38 years with 1,098 wins and only 208 losses and more championships than anyone can count. We are all left to ponder one inescapable fact: if dementia can strike someone as young (59) and as active as Pat Summit, is there anyone who's immune?

Most people love and appreciate their parents. We don't doubt that. The problem is, parents can't tell this unless you show it by the way you treat them. Sometimes adult children can bring heartache to their parents without realizing what they're doing. We've boiled it down to 5 main ways this happens.

The reality is marriage isn't always bliss. Marriage is about ups and downs. Some couples are ready to give up on each other when times are too difficult. They believe walking away from the marriage is easier than confronting the problems as a team. But if the love is pure and strong, then love can overcome anything. And if you have children, walking away from marriage without trying to make it work can set a bad example for them.

"The Book of Life" has been a project I've been pulling for since I first heard Guillermo del Toro was attached to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) project. The colors and beautiful philosophy behind the holiday have always felt like a great setting for storytellers, and del Toro's history of fantastical visuals and his own personal love for the traditions set up all the right ingredients for a potentially amazing animated adventure.
