- Sept. 11 leaves indelible mark on American foreign policy (Scott Flipse Urbanites)
Has anything really changed in the last six months? If asked, all of us will say that Sept. 11 had a profound effect on our lives. But, if we are honest, it also seems the world is sliding back to "normalcy." The economy is getting stronger, Republicans and Democrats are back to partisan sniping, the Israeli-Palestinian situation is again dominating our foreign policy, people are returning to their favorite leisure pursuits — like March Madness, protesting decisions of college administrators and demanding to know how Halle Berry won an Oscar.

- Changing routines into entertaining stories (Eric Long Fitter, Happier)

Within half an hour we adolescents had created our own personal episode of "The Wonder Years," a ridiculous prank heightened to that of a cinematic rite of passage.

- Bands, booze and the Tao of Dave (By DAVE LODEWYCK Scene Columnist)
Many starry-eyed and pimple-faced 15-year-old boys sitting alone on Friday nights get the idea that maybe the way to get to the ladies would be to learn the guitar. I was one of those boys. I can't even count how many Friday nights I spent in high-school, practicing guitar and watching "Sabrina: the Teenage Witch," thinking that that my work would one day pay off.
