Nancy is getting a promotion at work, so she is offered a better car and more New England territory. She also manages to pick up Adderall to sell. Silas is happy about getting to grow everyday at work, while Shane is having trouble dealing with tapeworm-infested homeless people at the police impound. Luckily his girlfriend Angela saves him. Jill is going through menopause and decides to drown her sorrows in foie gras and wine. This means she is not pregnant with Andy's baby, and that she has been withholding this information from him. Jill fears losing Andy, the only cork plugging the hole that is her life.

Little Boxes on the hillside, little boxes filled with sticky weed. Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes will get you high. When Nancy looks for work, she remembers to leave brick dancer, soccer mom drug dealer, arsonist, and most hardcore MILF off her resume. Meanwhile, her sister Jill is pregnant. Hopefully not with Doug's baby, and when I say "hopefully," I am quoting her. Andy has been parenting Nancy's children, then Jill's creepy twins, and even Nancy and Jill themselves.

Brian Mullinix once thought high school was a joke and college was an unattainable dream. Then he changed his mind and improved his grades. Now, starting his first semester at Howard Community College, the 17-year-old is certain he will succeed. HCC officials hope so, too, but they're not just hoping - they're making sure Mullinix has help to see him through to graduation. Along with 23 other teen-agers, he was picked for a new program that supports students whose high school performance didn't reflect their potential.

An innovative new program for Howard Community College students with less-than-stellar high school careers couldn't hang on to all 24 teen-agers who signed up last year. But administrators are delighted with the results. That's because 19 of the Silas Craft Collegians are still at HCC after two semesters, far better than the retention rate of the entire student body. HCC keeps about 60 percent of its new full-time students from year to year. Almost 80 percent of the Silas Craft group stayed, supported by a network of teachers, administrators and tutors assigned to watch over them.

Less than a year after the entry of the United States into World War II, the pressure for military personnel was being felt at every level of society, and the local schools were no exception. On Sept. 1, 1942, Howard County's school board discussed the possibility of school principals being inducted into military service, according to board minutes. "In view of the important positions ... it was considered that they would be left until the last and sufficient notice be given so that the principals and the board would be advised some time previous to any impending induction."

NEW YORK -- For most of its existence, Opus Dei has maintained a low profile within the Roman Catholic Church, content to pursue its work of helping a mostly lay membership grow closer to God in everyday life without drawing attention to itself - even as the popular image grew of a secretive sect that wielded disproportionate influence at the Vatican. Now a fictional albino monk is bringing the organization into the spotlight. Silas, the supposed Opus Dei monk who cuts a bloody swath through The Da Vinci Code, has drawn protests from the real-life organization since the novel was published three years ago. With the Ron Howard film of Dan Brown's blockbuster novel due out Friday, Opus Dei has launched an unprecedented campaign to explain the much-discussed but little-understood spiritual path that 3,000 adherents in the United States call "The Work."

Ever since the Los Angeles Lakers traded Shaquille O'Neal to the Miami Heat in the summer of 2004 after eight seasons and three NBA championships, the Lakers have been little more than mediocre - or worse - with star guard Kobe Bryant going on almost nightly one-man scoring binges. The latest outburst came Sunday, when Bryant, playing at Staples Center in Los Angeles against the Toronto Raptors, scored a career-high 81 points, the second most in NBA history, exceeded only by Wilt Chamberlain's legendary 100-point game for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks in 1962.

Here we are, on the cusp of another NBA season, and what are we talking about? A repeat for the San Antonio Spurs? A new cast in Miami? Larry Brown in New York? No, we're talking dress code. Sport coats. Ixnay on the ing- blay. For one of ESPN's commentators, putting suits on the players is fine, but he wishes this had been decided a while ago. "I would like to have seen this discussed right after the season," studio analyst Greg Anthony said during a conference call yesterday. There should be a buzz about the teams and players right now, he said, and "we don't have that yet."
