LOS ANGELES - While Toby Gerhart rampaged through the Southern California defense in a quiet Coliseum, the star tailback and his teammates also flattened a bunch of recent college football certainties. USC's streaks of seven straight BCS bowls, 11-win seasons and top-four AP poll finishes? All finished. The Trojans' Pac-10 dominance the last seven years? It's all but over too after Gerhart ran for 178 yards and three touchdowns in Stanford's 55-21 victory, the most points allowed in USC history.

Like many Americans, for years I wanted to believe Lance Armstrong. He had the aura of a hero, a testicular cancer survivor's story and seven consecutive Tour de France victories ("Armstrong lays out story of his doping," Jan. 18). In hindsight, the scenario was too perfect. For so long, we truly wanted to believe while not allowing our minds to ponder the unthinkable. At one time, Armstrong walked on rarefied air. He was an international megastar, and he was one of our own. That same air is suddenly rife with the stench of a cheat, a liar and a scourge of the masses who once revered him. Patrick R.

Who knew, apparently references in Jonathan Franzen novels pay off. The 9:30 Club has been named one of America's most influential clubs by Billboard magazine. In an item published last week, the club was included alongside New York City's Bowery Room and West Hollywood's The Troubadour in a list of the ten most influential clubs in the country. The 9:30 Club, heavily name-checked in Franzen's "Freedom," is the "best-designed working club in the country," says one of the music vets quoted in the magazine.

On Day One, perhaps you will notice the concrete -- surprisingly abundant after all this talk of steel beams and brick walls -- still wearing the sharp-edged grittiness of the freshly troweled sidewalk.And, maybe, as you enter the outer corridors by the festive concession stands beneath artfully exposed pipes and ducts, you will feel an uneasy pang that says, "Please, not another Harborplace."But then you will walk up a ramp and into the sunlight, and ease down onto one of the slatted green seats with all that leg room.

The first time Howard County inventor Dr. Robert Fischell experienced a migraine symptom known as an aura, he had no clue what was happening. Images of dancing circles crowded his vision, and when the circles grew larger, he thought he was about to have a stroke. Suddenly, the aura stopped and to Fischell's surprise, and relief, no ailment followed. "Oh, thank God," he said. Now the maker of the first implantable insulin pump, the rechargeable pacemaker and various coronary stents has invented a hand-held device that targets the aura en route to stopping a migraine - a painful, sometimes debilitating headache disorder - before it starts.

BETHESDA -- Funny how things work out. You do the same thing for nearly half your life and nobody notices. Then suddenly you go to work for a star and you become one yourself.The spotlight -- no, make that the aura -- that surrounds Tiger Woods these days has turned Mike "Fluff" Cowan into the PGA Tour's latest and greatest caddie celebrity. It has followed him to Congressional Country Club for the 97th U.S. Open.It's a position that Cowan, who just might be the only 2-handicap Deadhead in the country, shrinks from one moment and concedes to the next.

The national publicity for "Tiny Furniture" focused on this brainy, zany and engaging youth comedy as a veiled autobiography. Like her heroine, Aura, 24-year-old writer-director Lena Dunham graduated from Oberlin. Her mother and Aura's are New York artists who specialize in photographing miniatures. Dunham's sister, like Aura's, is a prize-winning student poet. To make the art-life symmetry perfect: Dunham plays Aura; her mother, Laurie Simmons, plays Siri, Aura's mother; and her sister, Grace Dunham, plays Nadine, Aura's sister.

No aura in new era Jeff Shain Orlando Sentinel No matter how much his game returns to form, Woods isn't going to resurrect those six- or seven-win seasons of the golden era. If there's one thing the world has discovered in the past 14 months, it's that he's not bulletproof. One need only look as far back as Woods' final round of 2010. Before the detour into Scandalville, a four-shot lead with 18 holes to play would have sent the trophy engraver home early.

I suppose Ricky Williams means well, but it's just so hard to take the guy seriously. The Miami Dolphins running back - who had a couple of sabbaticals from the NFL partly inspired by a journey for self-discovery and partly because the league whacked him for using marijuana or some other strange substance - said he was invited to go on that ill-fated boat ride with the Bears' Cedric Benson. As it turned out, Benson got involved with some lake police down in Texas and wound up being pepper-sprayed and arrested.

I am at my wits' end with my two sons' IBM laptop computers that are riddled with spyware and viruses to the extent that the computers are almost unusable. They use these computers a lot for gaming, surfing the Web, instant messaging and, of course, schoolwork. Ha!! I have purchased software that takes care of viruses and software that takes care of spyware, but it never seemed to work the way it should. I don't want to add more software to the mix and would rather have a disk that I can use on any computer that disinfects the entire machine.

Relative to other room-enhancing products, paint is so inexpensive that it commands little attention. Just choose a nice color and brush it on the wall, right? Wrong. Not all paints are created equally. For starters, the composition of interior paint has undergone major changes down through the decades, from the introduction of latex paint to the elimination of lead and solvents that were unfriendly to the environment and harmful to public health. However, the removal of lead caused colors to lose much of their vibrancy.

WASHINGTON-- --The obvious parallels to the martyred Democratic hero always have provided a powerful subtext to Barack Obama's presidential candidacy. Like John F. Kennedy, Obama is a young, charismatic senator who casts himself as a generational change agent, and as one whose election would break barriers of prejudice that have long compromised American ideals. Until now, those references have been subtle and oblique. But this month, the Obama campaign explicitly laid claim to the Kennedy legacy, bringing in the man who provided much of the poetry for Camelot, Kennedy speechwriter Theodore Sorensen, to vouch for Obama as a worthy heir.
