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.

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?

Maryland consumers who shop online at Amazon.com after Tuesday will be paying more — 6 percent of the sale. Yet most shoppers will click "place your order" anyway. The world's largest online retailer will begin collecting Maryland's sales tax as it prepares to start operations of a massive new distribution center next spring in Southeast Baltimore, where it expects to hire more than 1,000 workers. It has already hired part-time and seasonal workers to staff a smaller "sortation" center nearby that will open this fall.

The true value of wilderness is simply that it's there, wrote the late Edward Abby. You do not have to go, but knowing you could provides comfort.Knowing that others have done it can also be uplifting, which describes the appeal of "Braving Alaska," tonight's "National Geographic Special" on PBS, (at 8 o'clock on Maryland Public Television and Washington's WETA-Channel 26, the originating station).The final show of the series' season focuses upon four families living in the vast bush country of the 49th state, whose entire population is smaller than that of many cities in the lower 48. In many places, notes narrator Martin Sheen, "there is virtually no one."

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.
