Noted and passed - May 14, 2012

• With the Major League Baseball season in its infancy, we're struck by one fact about the New York Yankees: the team must have the biggest -- we're talking in terms of physical size here -- pitching staff in the history of the league. Excluding Hiroki Kuroda, at 6-1 and 190 pounds the dwarf of the group, New York's starting rotation averages nearly 6-6 in height and 257 pounds. Hurler C. C.

Creepy nation

Actor George Clooney is handsome and personable in the style of Hollywood male stars of the 1930s/1950s, which is a relief. But what a nation of creeps we have become. He is giving a supper at his home for the benefit of President Barack Obama's re-election, which, it is estimated, will reap $15 million from people anxious to say that they have shared a salad with the actor and gazed at the president. This spectacle is shameful to contemplate and it makes one wonder what kind of a country we have become when empty-headed vainglorious non-entities pay good ...

Ten things nobody told you about being married

You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made.

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.

Stay-at-home moms: They're doing more than what you think

I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...
