Every year around this time, television earns itself a little class by airing the Kennedy Center Honors, a tribute to the best performing arts talent this country has to offer. This year's edition, set for tonight on CBS, gets the class stuff right but, for the most part, lacks the poignancy and emotion needed to make the evening something special.In fact, the tributes to Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, Charlton Heston, Jessye Norman and Edward Villella seem almost rushed, as though the show's producers have to get somewhere.

Two years ago, when Sade Miller was in fifth grade at Ridgely Elementary School in Denton, she decided to raise money for the hospice in Caroline County. Instead of holding a bake sale or asking the adults in her life for money, Sade (pronounced Sha-day) decided to teach the dance in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video to nearly 100 students in her school, who then performed it at several venues in town. "We didn't charge admission," said Sade, now 12 and in seventh grade at Lockerman Middle School.
