After all of the messiness that went on with the Grant family last week, Liv is taking a much-needed vacation from Fitz, while sending Abby to the White House as her “proxy.” Cyrus isn't happy about it, but Liv made it clear that she will only answer Abby's phone calls and that Abby is not to call her unless “The White House is on fire, in flames, burning to the ground.” Abby assures Cyrus that she can do the job, but makes a point to...

Reports that Mark Twain based the narrator of "Huckleberry Finn" on a loquacious 10-year-old black boy, whom he described meeting nearly a decade before the book first appeared, are likely to prove small comfort to parents who object to the novel because of its demeaning racial stereotypes.The black roots of "Huck Finn" were discovered by University of Texas Professor Shelley Fisher Fishkin, who traced the narrative style of Twain's masterpiece to a character sketch the author published in the New York Times Nov. 29, 1874.

First off, wow. These past couple episodes have really been the best from this half of the season. At first, we were kind of meandering in Olitz drama, and it was getting kind of stale, because most of us kinda hate Fitz and hate Olivia when she was with him.   But this episode was all about family, and what happens when you're stuck between, say, a high-ranking, government-sanctioned assassin and a terrorist or a publicly unfaithful dad...

Black and white films are making a comeback. Not black and white in the cinematographic sense, but in the sense of stimulating thought about the depiction of blacks in the white, male-dominated movie industry.Two recently released films portray African-Americans as strong central characters. Disney's "The Adventures of Huck Finn" is an adaptation of Mark Twain's famous novel set in the 1850s. Miramax's "Just Another Girl on The I.R.T." is a contemporary look at a young black woman in Brooklyn.

From that phrase comes the title of the musical version of Huck Finn, "Big River."The drama department of Glenelg High School will present "Big River" Feb. 22, 24, 25 and 26 in the school auditorium. This production, directed by Ron Oaks, retells the story of Huck Finn, who is played by Jeb Stuart Johnston, and Jim, played by Jamie Hill.The play is a story about Huck's efforts to help Jim, a runaway slave, escape down the river.

One of the most famous characters in American literature is Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. Daring and mischievous, Huck is the archetype of an incorrigible boy. His many exciting adventures and episodes of trouble are chronicled in the 1985 Tony-winning musical Big River. The story begins in St. Petersburg, Mo., and unfolds along the Mississippi River. Huck escapes his crazed, alcoholic father and stumbles upon Jim, a runaway slave. Together, they venture down the river in search of freedom.

So here's the thing: "Scandal” won't be returning until Feb. 27. The news came out that they were cutting the season short a few episodes -- most likely due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy (CONGRATS!). But that doesn't change the fact that fans are not happy about having to wait over two months to find out what the consequences of last night's episode will be. We start off with Sally, who is still reeling from murdering Daniel Douglas. In frenzied flashbacks, we see how it happened.

Olivia's life isn't finished imploding, which is both entertaining and frustrating to watch. I think half of the joy of watching “Scandal” is being able to route for Olivia as she ruthlessly ensures the best outcome for her client. Even though her moral compass currently points nowhere near North, I like to watch her put powerful people in their place. I was beginning to worry that she had no fight left, especially when we open up to her begrudgingly eating Sunday dinner with Daddy Pope.

We pick things up at Olivia's, where a disappointed Jake is packing up to go home. Olivia's safer if he's not there. She says Fitz will protect her, but Jake scoffs. Her father is Command and Fitz can't defend her, because he doesn't even know who her enemy is. Olivia tries, in a convincing tone, to say that her father would never kill her, but Jake has seen the full extent of Eli/Rowan's wrath and describes the torture he endured in that hole: beatings, starvation, isolation, then being nursed to health for a second round.

I'm going to begin by saying that I was not sure about this episode from the preview. Hostage situation? It's been done so many times that I feared that we may be getting the first predictable episode of “Scandal” ever. Thankfully, I was wrong. Jake is resting in Olivia's bed, wrapped in bandages and bruised all over, but still managing to be beautiful. Olivia's huddled on the floor, reeling from all that has happened. Fitz calls, wanting to explain Jake, but Olivia can't talk.

Dear Michael Steele, Don't do it, Mike! Sorry for the familiarity, but given that you're our former lieut-guv and all, I thought it would be OK. Plus, this is urgent, and there's simply no time for formalities. I saw in the New York Post last week that you're back in the job market, now that the Republican National Committee has shown you the door, and you're already talking to both Fox News and CNN about becoming a paid commentator. No big shock there, given that you were previously a Fox talker and barely broke your media stride during the couple of years that you chaired the RNC. And no surprise because TV is obviously your natural habitat — you look good, you schmooze well and, probably most important in this medium, at any point in time you are likely to say something crazy.

Finn Jon Clinch Random House / 292 pages / $23.95 Jon Clinch has staked himself to a stiff challenge in his debut novel: casting Mark Twain's monstrous creation Pap Finn - feckless father of Huck - as a leading man. The resulting book is dark and often gripping, though marred by stylistic excess and a shortage of pathos. I suspect the central academic achievement of Finn will be to transport the world's Twain scholars into a collective tizzy. Clinch has, as they say, taken liberties with the back story.
