With less than three weeks remaining before "The Hunger Games" movie is released, I thought it was time to join the 20-plus millions who have read books in Suzanne Collins' hit trilogy. (That and the contunued urging of my teen-age niece, K.T.) Collins' tale about the life-or-death competition among youngsters in post-apocalyptic North America was aimed at a young adult audience -- much like Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series -- but has swept far beyond that group.

Welcome to Season 18 of "The Bachelor"! Last night's episode " Countdown to Juan Pablo" was a complete waste of time, but gave us a glimpse into how different this season will be from past seasons. NOT! As usual, there will be yacht jumping, waterfalls, hot tubs, kissing, dancing, kissing while dancing and lots of tears and drama. The good news is that Juan Pablo has been working on his abs, his biceps  and his English, and all are significantly improved. In order to fill this “Get to know Juan Pablo” hour-long episode, we are treated to an inside view on how ABC chooses the women who will be cat fighting for Juan Pablo's heart.

Heading downtown to ring in 2014? Leave your bags and packages at home or they could be searched. That's the message Baltimore police gave as they previewed the tight security measures planned for Tuesday night's New Year's Eve Spectacular fireworks and laser show at the Inner Harbor. "We want everyone to come downtown and have a good time," Lt. Col. Melissa Hyatt said. Police plan to deploy scores of officers - some in plainclothes, some traveling by horseback and helicopter.

After watching ESPN's “Monday Night Countdown” show, I wondered why they even bothered to play the game. All I heard for two hours, was how unstoppable Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was, and how all but impossible it was for the Ravens to make the kind of run they made last year without Ray Lewis. At first, it was just annoying. But then, it became embarrassing when Steve Young and Trent Dilfer started talking about the “moral authority” that Lewis provided for the Ravens - with Lewis sitting next to them on the set. Really, I understand that ESPN has a huge investment in Lewis as its new marquee analyst, but don't demean the Ravens players to promote him. I don't think I heard the name of Daryl Smith, the linebacker who replaced Lewis, mentioned once in the “Countdown” show.
