"My favorite book is The Hungry Fox and the Foxy Duck by Kathleen Leverich. I like the duck and the fox because the fox wants to eat the duck, but the duck already knows about it. The duck lies to the fox because she does not want to be French toast. This is a good book. I really liked it." -- Sora Rivka Goliger Norbel Elementary "My favorite book is Doug Cheats by Linda Garvey, Danny Campbell and Kimberly Campbell. I like this book because Doug has a big history test coming and every time he starts studying he has to do something or he falls asleep.

Farewell Summer Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 "Is death being on a ship sailing and all your folks left back on the shore?" asks 13-year-old Doug of his grandfather in Ray Bradbury's latest, Farewell Summer. "That's about it, Doug," replies the grandfather - and in Doug's head "the storm began." It's the storm of adolescence, the turmoil of loss, and it hangs low over Farewell Summer, Bradbury's long-delayed follow-up to his 1957 semi-autobiographical Dandelion Wine, which featured a 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding in a handful of short stories that read like miniatures of intricate clockwork, each perfectly machined and chiming with the cogs and gears of idiosyncratic characters, building into a contraption that was as much a time machine as the mysterious creation that lived in the garage of a town denizen.

The other night we were watching a movie on TV. During one of the commercial breaks - which are generally long enough to drive to Dairy Queen for a sundae and get back before the show starts again - Doug went to make some popcorn. I approve of popcorn as "food" on principle. It's delicious right out of the kernel - if you like Styrofoam packing peanuts - and it has fiber which, as the fiber-supplement industry is constantly reminding us, is good for us. Personally, I think they're just trying to get rid of all those extra Styrofoam packing peanuts.

1 The Ravens have to control quarterback Doug Flutie as both a passer and a rusher. He has big-play potential from anywhere on the field.2 The Ravens have to stop the Bills' running game early. Buffalo hasn't had success establishing one this season and could be quick to abandon it.3 The Ravens must run the football, which would take a lot of pressure off quarterback Tony Banks, making his first start of 1999.

Many who witnessed the climactic events in Waco think that all of the Branch Davidians were senseless "religious fanatics."I knew and corresponded with one who has been described as "second or third in command" of the group. His mannerisms were gentle, and he did not have a mean streak in his body. He was reserved, always polite and never prone to violence.Douglas Wayne Martin, the 42-year-old African-American Harvard trained lawyer, who perished on April 19th with three of his six children in the inferno that engulfed his religious group's living quarters ten miles from Waco, Texas, was a respectable and likable man.The last time that we talked, during a phone conversation two years ago, he said that things were going well for him, his wife, Sheila, and their children in that south Texas town.

The new comedy The Promotion suggests that if American life is an extension of high school, laboring at a corporate supermarket is the equivalent of high-school detention. It's a funny insight undone by a scenario akin to a foul-mouthed after-school special. Life lessons get learned, and the pretty good are pretty well rewarded. The movie has a touch of truth to it, but afterward you feel as if you've been tickled by a worn-out feather duster. On the plus side, anyone who's taken a long hard look at himself and wondered, "How did this happen?"
