HEARTS, FLOWERS and candy may be the familiar gifts of Valentine's Day, but not the only ones a group of area women had in mind this year. Love and caring was the message spoken with each bud vase of flowers arranged and delivered by members of Sheen's Colleens of St. Joseph's Catholic Community yesterday and Sunday to residents of area nursing homes and retirement communities. Some members of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus (Sheen's Colleens) spent most of Saturday gathering supplies, making bows and filling about 400 bud vases with flowers for residents of more than a half a dozen nursing home facilities in South Carroll.

I don't like Charlie Sheen, and I thought the online mania over him last year after he was fired by CBS was a sign from God that American culture was in a very bad place and needed divine intervention to be saved. Given the political landscape these days, I'm not feeling any better about American culture, but I like Sheen's new FX sitcom "Anger Management"  a lot more than I thought I would. "Not only do I like it, as in, "Gee, that was a lot more fun to watch than 95 percent of the braindead network sitcoms I screen," I am impressed by it, as in, "Yikes, this thing actually looks like it might have something to say about American life today.

Heavy rains in the Baltimore area did more than delay last night's game between the Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. They also kept the commander in chief waiting. Actor Martin Sheen, who portrays President Josiah Bartlet in the popular television series The West Wing, threw out the first pitch for the drama's final episode of the season. His windups - there were four of them - came about 45 minutes late because of the weather. Sheen rehearsed the scene earlier in the day, walking from the dugout to the mound and waving to a fictitious crowd.

Prince has angered the music industry and stirred up trouble among British retailers by giving away his new album with a tabloid newspaper this weekend. Planet Earth will be packaged with the Mail on Sunday at a price of $2.80. The giveaway has been roundly criticized as a major blow for an industry already facing rapidly declining CD sales. It has led Sony BMG U.K., Prince's local label, to pull the plug on its own sales release of the CD in Britain. Also fueling retailers' ire is what they see as a traitorous move by one of their own. After initially harshly criticizing Prince and the deal, music and books retailer HMV, which doesn't normally sell newspapers, decided to sell the Mail on Sunday in its 400-plus stores across the country.

What's a social media ambassador, you ask? That's a good question, because Charlie Sheen will be filling that role for WWE's historic 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw . The star of Anger Management, a new comedy on FX, will shell out commentary and insight during the course of the night to his 7.5 million Twitter followers. Using the hashtag #SheenGetsRaw, fans will be able to ask the actor questions during the show, which will be broadcast live on USA on July 23.

Charlie Sheen was clearly the man of the year. You'll recall that 2011 began with the oafish actor celebrating his own narcotic and sexual crapulence like a victorious gladiator working the crowds. He was egged on by a media with as much decency as the cons on the top tiers of the prison who chant "fresh fish" as the new inmates walk into general pop, their eyes stinging from delousing powder. Mr. Sheen succeeded at turning his own debasement into a national pseudo-event by calling the very definition of losing "winning.

Soon-to-be tour buddies and new BFFs Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj blessed the Internet last Friday with a remix of Spears' robotic single, "Till the World Ends. " As usual, Minaj's opening verse is pure thievery: vocal tics (it's a wonder how Minaj's blown-out-animation schtick still has these kinds of legs) and thinly veiled diss lines at Lil Kim make the Young Money artist a zany, welcome addition. Where as Britney can sound so processed on tape, Minaj's larger-than-life performance matches the in-the-red party production.

I'm with you, Huck. I couldn't agree more with Mike Huckabee, who dissed Natalie Portman last week. Portman, outrageously, won the best actress Oscar for her pinched-face, baby-voiced mewling as a tortured ballerina in "Black Swan. " A travesty! Especially when obviously the award should have gone to Jennifer Lawrence as a tough backwoods girl battling her extended meth-brewing clan to save her own family in "Winter's Bone. " What? What's that you say? Huckabee actually was slamming Portman not for her undeserved statuette but for the unwed actress' baby bump?
