Absolute Power (1997) Clint Eastwood stars as the sensitive thief who can save the entire American political system from complete corruption. Too bad he wasn't around during the Reagan administration. Eastwood discovers presidential corruption during his final heist before being arrested, but not before he and Gene Hackman appear in several sites around Baltimore. The Towson Court House doubles as the site of a presidential press conference, Brooklandville's Maryvale Prep is the mansion, and Eastwood shows the thief's artsy side while sketching at the Walters' Art Gallery.

Spuds MacKenzie is dead. And now, inevitably, things will start to get ugly.You'll learn "the truth" about Spuds.The tabloids -- print and television, both -- will be all over this one, like fleas on a hound. People magazine will tell you that Spuds spent a few wonderful months with the late Raymond Burr and try to make it sound like something dirty.The sleazemeisters wait until the great ones are dead, and then they feed off them.It makes me ashamed when we're talking about what I think we can all agree was a great American dog. Tell me whose life wasn't made better by having known this pooch?

The true mettle and value of a musician is how naturally he can perform live. And on stage, Billy Joel is one of pop music's best, a seasoned veteran who's genuine, at ease and funny. There are no elaborate dance numbers, no over-the-top sets, no trickery, explosions or guitar-smashings. It's just Billy and his top-notch, eight-member band on a simple but classy set -- with large video screens and color lighting ... and 20-plus classic rock/pop songs that have made up the soundtrack of many lives.

My only comment on President Barack Obama's pick for Treasury Secretary is that Jack Lew should try to improve his penmanship ("Treasury pick seen as right for budget fights," Jan. 10). His signature looks like a stretched out slinky toy. I'm not sure I want to see his scrawl on all my dollar bills.
