The older sister of Phylicia Barnes tearfully said Monday she had allowed her teenage sister to drift too close to the man now accused of murdering her, testifying in the trial of Michael Maurice Johnson that the then-26-year-old's unnerving conduct one summer night was the final blow to their relationship. Prosecutors played for the jurors a 16-minute video they said depicted Deena Barnes and Johnson, along with Phylicia and Johnson's younger brother Glenton Michael Johnson kissing and "nakedly" touching after leaving a June 2010 party on a dare that they go streaking together.

Long before Isaiah 54:17 became a rallying cry during the Ravens' Super Bowl run and a fixture in Ray Lewis' speeches, an angry and withdrawn young boy heard the words and decided to put them over his bedroom door. "No weapon formed against me shall prosper. " Yet to celebrate his 10th birthday and already burdened by a lifetime's worth of tragedy, Matt Elam felt that the whole world was against him when he displayed the verse to give him a daily reminder of what mattered.

Talk about a slip of a show. I haven't seen as thin a concept for a prime-time comedy show as the WB's JKX: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment since The Paula Poundstone Show debacle on ABC a few seasons back. Remember that one? ABC announced the debut of Poundstone's show, and then she announced a few days before it aired that she wasn't exactly sure how to do a television show. The product eventually put on ABC's air looked as though she didn't have a clue. Jamie Kennedy (Scream) has a clue and some acting talent, too, but that's about it. There is almost enough here for a five-minute sketch on Saturday Night Live, not a half-hour show.

"I'm Emily," the small girl with the big smile politely said. Emily Hughes is alternately known as Sarah's Sister and more recently, Michelle's Replacement. She met with the media yesterday for the first time since arriving in Italy the day before.

Stories about Mitt Romney's bullying behavior during his prep school days in Michigan made me think of a message that popped up on my Facebook page last year: A woman from my hometown wanted to know why, 40 years ago, I had laughed at the news that her brother had been killed in a car accident. I was startled by the question - not because the woman had raised something shameful from my past but because I had no idea what she was talking about. I was not friends with the woman, but I knew her older sister.

RALEIGH, N.C. -All week it seemed, Debbie Yow had been thinking about her trip here. It wasn't really dread. It wasn't fear. But there was an anxiety - an uncertainty even - as Yow packed her bags and returned to Raleigh. She'll never forget her previous two trips to town, and truth be told, she doesn't really want to. The first was in early January. Then just as now, she didn't really think of it as a goodbye. "I wouldn't let myself go there," says Yow, Maryland's athletic director.

I suppose that there are currently scores of young girls sitting at their parents' word processors and writing ferociously about their neglected childhoods as latchkey children. For now, we have "Dream House: A Memoir," in which poet/editor Charlotte Nekola recounts her youth during the '50s in St. Louis.She tells of her mother's cooking and baking and keeping house and taking care of her and the two older children. Mother's sin, although she did her housewife's duties every day, was that she didn't seem to like it very much and was often absent-minded and remote.
