I've lived in Indianapolis since 1974, and it is really a great town. We don't have an Inner Harbor, but we do have lots of things that are absolutely incredible. Lots of fun places, and tech, manufacturing and bio industry. Plus one of the fastest-growing residential areas in the country just north of town. Having said that... I have to tell you that I am beyond upset about what the blue and white football losers did on December 27 when they sat Peyton Manning and other starters against the Jets.

This wasn't the most exciting episode of “True Blood,” but it did what it could to move the story along. Trouble for Pam and Eric Eric Northman, still in his Texan cowboy disguise, stands dazed in the tunnel in which we left him last episode, vision wonky thanks to the Hep V. Still, he makes short work of a bunch of machete-bearing Yakuza members -- until a couple more turn up, holding Pam by the neck with a silver chain. Captured, they are taken to a Yakanomo Corp.

IF THE Orioles were going nowhere again this season, it wouldn't matter that reliever Jason Grimsley was making a semi-miraculous and somewhat mysterious recovery from Tommy John surgery. Who cares about a 37-year-old pitcher on a losing team? But with the Orioles trying to turn their surprisingly fast start into a yearlong run for the playoffs, Grimsley's possible return looms as the definitive test of the good karma that has surrounded the club throughout the season. When veteran pitching help unexpectedly falls out of the sky and lands in your bullpen - just in time to shape your trading deadline plans and possibly make a difference down the stretch - it could be that you're destined to get all the breaks and accomplish big things.

Previously: the new Salani was awesome, and the new Manono sucked. Back at Manono after Tribal Council, Alicia and Colton can't help gloating over the "blindside" they gave Monica; then they add to it by taunting Christina about how she has no alliance, and even if she makes it to the merge, she'll be toast. And then they get downright mean, barely letting her sleep in the shelter. Christina believes that Alicia is “genuinely not a good person,” and I have to say that I agree with her. Let's hope that she gets what's coming for her, if there is any karma in the universe at all. At Salani, they agree with me about Alicia.

These languid days of summer demand new and novel ways to be unproductive. For those who lack the imagination needed to swing in a hammock while discerning pictures in the clouds, or the stamina to listen to talk radio, the personal computer can be a valuable tool.A computer can generate anagrams, for example.An anagram is a word or phrase that is created from another word or phrase containing the same set of letters. The television talk show host Dick Cavett revealed in his autobiography that he has long had the impressive gift of creating anagrams in his head.

Remember when NBC used to be known for its sophisticated sitcoms - savvy series like Seinfeld and Friends? Well, hold tight to that memory, because NBC's reputation for comedy may never be the same after tonight's debut of My Name Is Earl. The show stars Jason Lee in the title role as a lowlife, petty criminal who suddenly gets religion (of a sort) when he discovers a TV version of karma. With it, NBC, which last season plummeted to fourth place among the networks, seems to be struggling to attract the young men of Spike TV - and, perhaps, the women of the NASCAR circuit.

MINNEAPOLIS - Arizona and Duke started the college basketball season as the two best teams in the country, and they will end up that way tonight when the Wildcats meet the Blue Devils in the NCAA tournament championship game at the Metrodome. But the burning questions surrounding these two blue-chip teams have to do with forces beyond their control. Will divine intervention take over for Arizona, or will some other type of intervention take over for Duke? There was a sense of both happening in Saturday's semifinals.

SALT LAKE CITY - People snickered when skier Picabo Street talked about karma being a part of the Olympics. But there has been enough karma, good and bad, at these Winter Games to fill a fleet of flowered Volkswagen microbuses. Looking for the good stuff? Start with Street. No, she didn't win a third medal to go with her 1998 gold and 1994 silver. But America's most-decorated and oft-injured skier finished her career in one piece, in her favorite event - the downhill - in front of an adoring crowd just miles from her home.

Himalaya does for yak caravans what Red River did for cattle drives: it sees them as the stuff of epic conquest. Its characters overcome hazardous landscapes, deprivation and their own competitive disputes. They arrive at their destination and at a better understanding of themselves. Director Eric Valli has confessed, "The film is a sort of Western - a Tibetan Western." It's Red River as a Buddhist John Ford might have made it. Instead of John Wayne's grizzled cattle boss there is Tinle (Thilen Lhondup)

Happy March, y'all. We were treated to an early "Jersey Shore"episode this week, when we all learned that Snooki was said to be carrying a new member of Team Meatball around in her tummy. Assuming the rumored baby is Jionni's (which I believe is the story), what would he be thinking as he watched this week's episode, where “The Situation” Situation is sure to go down? The single crew heads out to Jenks for a night of drunken debauchery . It looks like a promising night for the guys, as Pauly and Mike both find girls right off the bat (and also miss an Angelina altercation)

CreditKarma already provides free credit scores to consumers. It now is offering free credit monitoring.  Consumers now pay about $15 a month for such a service, CEO Ken Lin wrote to me in an email. “Consumers are paying over $1 billion a year for the same service that we will be giving away for free,” Lin says. The company says it will monitor reports daily and emails consumers if there is a significant change, such a new credit inquiry. You can opt in online . CreditKarma says it doesn't make money charging consumers.

Hello, Top Cheffers! Is it just me, or does last week feel like ages ago? Poor Dakota and Nyesha got sent home, Heather took another step toward becoming the least-liked female contestant in “Top Chef” history, and Ty-Lör got his groove back.   With all that drama, I am happy to see the cheftestants move on to Austin this week. It brings a clean slate in a new city and, of course, a hysterical carpool montage. The chefs' driving montage is pretty filled with standard silly banter but also gives us the gift of Handsome Chris' in-house nickname, Malibu.

Bring your karma and your chameleon to the KarmaFest this weekend at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville. In its sixth year, the festival is the work of Patricia Hawse, a Red Cross volunteer who found solace in meditation during her time in Louisiana, where she helped victims of Hurricane Katrina. Afterwards, Hawse vowed to spread the word about the benefits of yoga, meditation, holistic medicine and the power of the pysche. Whether you're a master of the downward-facing dog or simply a poseur, it doesn't matter because by the end of the week we could all use some good karma.

A guy who's just won his second term as governor of Maryland after twice getting himself elected mayor of Baltimore probably doesn't have much need for amateur political advice. But what the heck. Here goes anyway. Now that Martin O'Malley has won his second term as governor, he is assured of being the man with the scissors at the opening of the first section of the $2.5 billion Intercounty Connector late this year or early next. It will be a great moment in the sun for the governor.

Quote: "I don't know if it's bad luck or bad karma for me. I need to go out and do some kind of ritualistic dance or burn my uniform, I don't know." - Angels closer Troy Percival after blowing his second save chance in three days It's a fact: The Expos are 3-12 without Rondell White in the starting lineup. Who's hot: The Indians' Manny Ramirez has homered three times and is batting .409 (9-for-22) with nine RBIs since returning from the disabled list Friday. Who's not: The Athletics have 89 errors, most in the majors.

Television could be enriched if more men of letters were interviewed instead of empty-headed celebrities plugging their latest project. In the case tonight of Norman Mailer on PBS' "Talking With David Frost," (9 p.m. channels 22 and 67) a session that touches many bases, we're able to see how time has mellowed and changed this two-fisted writer who surprisingly pulls a few punches today.He's opinionated, yes, but leaves his targets still standing; is self-critical, but at the same time defensive and philosophical.

There's no point in trying to make sense of it. The Orioles turned conventional wisdom on its head to trounce the New York Yankees on Opening Day at Camden Yards. They beat the most expensive pitcher on the most expensive team in baseball and left us with nothing but John Lennon ringing in our skulls. Instant karma's gonna get you. How else do you explain Mark Teixeira's punchless Yankees debut or the strange eighth-inning home run by shortstop Cesar Izturis that had a spooky resemblance to the infamous Jeffrey Maier incident at Yankee Stadium all those years ago?

It's a new year of sports media notes but, sorry, the same old writer: Ravens fans wouldn't mind if this were a preview as much as a replay: At 8 a.m. today, the NFL Network is running the CBS telecast of the Ravens' victory in Miami in October. * And maybe there is more good karma in ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown (11 a.m.). ESPN has scheduled interviews with Joe Flacco and members of the Ravens' defense - conducted by Trent Dilfer. So the Ravens' Super Bowl-winning quarterback will interview their current quarterback.
