In response to Mr. Chiazza’s recent letter to the editor (Tribune, Oct. 20, evtnow.com/5z0), I, too, find it quite disturbing that radicals are putting up signs saying “Destroy Public Education.” However, the group that placed these signs are not those who oppose the override.

Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of "Enough Said," an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girls' night movie of the season. For their part, men will enjoy watching Gandolfini in a relaxed, self-effacing, regular guy performance.

The first time I roasted a head of cauliflower was a pivotal food moment for me. It changed my vegetable eating life. Before that, I was able to eat one or two pieces of cauliflower, and even then only if they were smothered in cheese sauce. But once I learned how roasting dramatically changes the flavor of cauliflower, I could eat an entire head straight up. It's really that good.
You’re 15 minutes late to the scheduled interview, stalled by a traffic slog, a lack of direction and a persistent absence of time. Fortunately, the man you’re supposed to meet with, owner Don Salter of Mesa’s The Saltmine Studio Oasis, doesn’t notice the absence and forgets about your interview — you later discover all tall, lean men apparently look alike. So you wait for an extra half hour as he completes the vocal discussion in his office and sets up Studio A for an older couple who appear as if they stepped right off the farm with a young man clad in black.
For years, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) have been spouting a story of how the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway (SMF) will save our Valley from traffic congestion and air pollution. Now that experts have weighed in, it is clear that these claims are untrue and that this freeway proposal is a major fraud perpetrated by MAG and spread by ADOT in the form of its recent Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

When scandalous tales of fraud involving superstar athletes Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o were exposed in the last week, connections to films were immediate and obvious. The story of Notre Dame Football hero Te'o falling for a fake dead girlfriend on the Internet called to mind the documentary "Catfish." And disgraced cyclist Armstrong, who has finally admitted to doping in winning the Tour de France a record seven times, is already the subject of a biopic that's in the works.
New York -- Well aware that the television audience may be particularly sensitive, the Showtime network aired a disclaimer warning audiences of violent content in the season finales of its dramas “Homeland” and “Dexter” last weekend. It was two days after a gunman killed 26 people in a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.
