As some 1,035 guests enjoyed their Sunday dinner in the Martin's West ballroom, they were first entertained by the Young Columbians singing group. That was followed by a concert from the Carson Four -- a string quartet of 17-year-old Murray Carson, B.J. Carson, 15, Rhoeyce Carson, 14, and their mom, fund co-founder Candy Carson. Meanwhile, photos of this year's 176 Carson scholars -- each of whom was awarded money to be invested for college -- were flashed on big screens on either side of the stage.

The latest episode of "Parks and Recreation" did so many things to make me happy. Let's make a list. 1.) Acknowledged the rare and beautiful thing that is Ron and Leslie's deep friendship that has not a trace of romance to it, despite the fact that they are of opposite gender and both heterosexual. 2.) Let Lucy Liu be a badass in the most subtle and wonderful of ways. 3.) Unleashed Megan Mullally in full-crazy mode. 4.) Not only acknowledged that the meanness toward Jerry is that, but had the characters acknowledge it and correct their behavior.

The sign that greets visitors is nothing more than an 8-by-10 piece of paper printed off a computer and taped to the office's front door. The chairs in the conference room don't match, the cardboard boxes still aren't unpacked from the recent move and the phone won't stop ringing. Less than three weeks to go. The next 10 days make up the busy period, as organizers round up athlete RSVPs and sell the last available tickets for the 29th annual Ed Block Courage Awards banquet. The night of the ceremony, it's all black ties, bright lights and cloth napkins.
