When I called Nancy L. Fox and got her answering machine the other day, I considered not leaving my number or the reason I wanted to talk to her. She's psychic, after all. Fox is the psychic who tried to help police find Christine Ann Jarrett after the Elkridge woman disappeared in January 1991. At the time, according to news accounts, she said she "saw" the missing woman get into a light blue car, and that there may be some clues to her disappearance in southern Pennsylvania. Whenever I hear of cases like this, of psychics working with police or family members solve a missing person case, I secretly hope there's something to it. It's not that I hold much stock in the paranormal — I have enough trouble figuring out the actual normal let alone whatever it is that goes on in astral pathways or Area 51 or all those blocked chakras.

Brave and unflinching, Blue Car is a sobering look at teen-age vulnerability and a warning to adults who don't recognize certain moral absolutes. In this, the moral absolute is that adults should not have sexual relations with teen-agers, and Blue Car is honest enough to both promote an understanding of the sinners and condemn unequivocally the sin. It's a movie that embraces the victims while refusing to demonize the offender. Agnes Bruckner is 18-year-old Meg, the elder daughter in a household broken beyond repair, but without anyone to blame.

A longtime “cornfusion” (our family word for confusion) surfaced Thursday.  First came the obituary for Walter Herman, former Roland Avenue neighbor,  News American  writer and relative to my sister by marriage. He was legendary in the 'hood and lived many years two blocks away on Roland.   When my husband told me of his obituary before breakfast on Thursday, I was startled. I thought I had seen him driving on Roland Avenue early in the week, so I asked the date of his death.

IMAGE IS EVERYTHING, or so a tennis star crowed in a TV commercial a few years back. The celebrity was pitching cameras, but as easily could have been promoting CarMax, the used car "superstore" that just opened in Savage in Howard County.CarMax, a division of the Circuit City electronics store chain, is offering no-haggle prices, a money-back guarantee and a playroom with child-care providers.As an industry analyst noted in an article by Sun writer Ted Shelsby, buyers might be able to wheedle a better price elsewhere.
