And you thought it was expensive watching The Wire on Comcast. Try tuning in via $42,000 a year at Middlebury College, which began offering a course on the late, great HBO series this semester. The Middlebury price includes a whole year's education at the esteemed Vermont college but, alas, no access to the Food Network.

It sounds simple, doesn't it? Round up the kids, go outside, grab the dogs and smile for the camera. If only taking the annual Christmas card picture in the Hopkins family was that easy. This year, it all started when Henry and Nancy Hopkins called upstairs to their sleepy son Holt, home on Thanksgiving break from Middlebury College. Today? Holt protested. How come no one ever warns me?Pub Date: 12/16/97

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. - Insular New England towns have a way of lending themselves to literary examinations of the dark side of American character. Shirley Jackson's short story, "The Lottery," about a New England community's annual ritual of stoning a resident to death, led unsuspecting readers into a heart of darkness. Arthur Miller used the Salem witch hunts as the foundation for "The Crucible," his cautionary play about McCarthyism. Now, in "Spinning into Butter," Rebecca Gilman, a young playwright from Chicago, has mined New England to comment on deeply embedded social ills.

In its own official journal, the Hare Krishna movement has published an unusually candid expose detailing widespread physical, emotional and sexual abuse of children who were sent to live in the group's boarding schools in the United States and India in the 1970s and 1980s.Parents were often unaware of the abuse because they were traveling around soliciting donations in airports and on the streets, leaving their children in the care of Hare Krishna monks and young devotees who had no training in educating children and often resented the task, the report says.

Several Saturdays ago, I was fed up with family life. My house was filled with visiting relatives who all needed rides to the airport. In the middle of a very hot night, BGE turned off the electricity to the entire block. So at 5 o'clock in the morning, I awoke in a sweat and stumbled to the kitchen, lighting candles, getting ready to drive my brother-in-law to his early morning flight. The only thing that kept me going through this and subsequent weekend travails - four more runs to BWI and a five-hour swim meet in Crofton - was the thought that very soon, I would be on vacation.
