UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones should not be blamed for the cancellation of UFC 151. The blame should be placed squarely on the shoulders of UFC President Dana White and Zuffa, LLC. Over the last several years, we've seen fighters sustaining injuries while preparing for upcoming fights. On most occasions, a replacement fighter was named and the fight went on as scheduled. But in the case of Jones, he is no ordinary fighter. He is a brand. That's right, a brand. The day he signed with Nike, he became a brand.

Among the most fundamental of money tasks is creating a will, yet nearly six in 10 adults don't have one, according to a recent survey by FindLaw.com, a legal information Web site. It's a shame to spend money wisely during your lifetime and then lose control afterward, as state law and probate court decide how to divvy up all you own and siphon money from your estate in the form of fees and taxes you might not otherwise have incurred. And for parents with minor children, not having a will means the state will decide who raises your children if you and your spouse die. Wills aren't only for rich people.

With all due respect to Staind, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Simple Plan and the other acts coming to the area this weekend, we're going to pass. Instead, and despite how cliched it sounds, it feels right to support a cause around the holidays. The all-ages show Giving Thanks: A Benefit Concert for Baltimore City Public Schools will feature all groups from the area: Shook, Lifted, the Dialogue, Greasy Hands and the Tressels. The best part: the proceeds form your $10 ticket will go towards purchasing instruments for local music programs.

"A Simple Plan" is sure to send a chill down filmgoers' spines, literally and figuratively.Set in the frigid tundra of a north Michigan winter, this foreboding tale of greed and destruction will send audiences diving for their wraps, if only in a fit of vicariousness.Yet even more chilling is this movie's unrelenting examination of the dark side of human nature. Here, banality and evil co-exist with unsettling ease, making even such cozy environs as a kitchen or a baby's nursery suddenly exude a weird sense of foreboding.

Beneath the skater-boy image and good-time vibe, the guys of Simple Plan are sensitive. They feel your pain. Misunderstood by your folks? Feel like the rest of the world is against you? These Canadian pop-punk dudes have been there. On No Pads, No Helmets ... Just Balls, the band's platinum major-label debut, SP articulates teen angst over brash, rambunctious arrangements: God must hate me / He cursed me for eternity / God must hate me / Maybe you should pray for me ... The lyrical content may seem dark and pessimistic, but the warp-speed music stimulates you. You don't even realize you're rockin' to such a sad tune.

TC If your faith in humanity is suffering, "A Simple Plan" won't do anything to cheer you up. But if your faith in hyped books needs a boost, you should pick up Scott Smith's brutal and accomplished first novel.Mr. Smith deftly hooks the reader with his first few lines: "My parents died in an automobile accident the year after I was married. They tried to enter I-75 through an exit ramp one Saturday night and crashed head-on into a semi hauling cattle." Then he matter-of-factly unreels an increasingly horrifying story.

When "A Simple Plan" opened in Baltimore theaters Friday, a simple question was begged.What took it so long?After all, the movie had already opened in New York and Los Angeles Dec. 11. Not only that, but "The Thin Red Line" opened in those same cities Dec. 23 and didn't arrive here until Jan. 15.Is it something we said?The truth is, Hollywood isn't singling out Baltimore. Each movie had different reasons for getting here so late, although both signal major studios' return to the kind of platformed release strategy usually associated with smaller companies like Miramax Films.

In one explosive sequence in Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell, the appearance of a goat at a seance rouses belly laughs and fear. How does a director judge the comic and dramatic impact of such outre content? For Raimi, it's simultaneously difficult and easy. "Getting audiences laughing in the wrong way would be a disaster," he says. "But I have to get back to how I feel about each image. I have to take the point of view that I am the same as any audience member. If I find something frightening, they will; if I find something funny, they'll find it funny, too. ... "The moment I begin to think I feel one way and the audience feels another way - that would be the beginning of the end for me. I'd be holding myself above or apart from the audience, and I can't imagine doing that.

Foundry workers at a Toyota Motor Corp. plant in Troy, Mo., laughed out loud back in 2003 when Toyota Executive Vice President Kosuke Shiramizu traveled from Japan and gave them a new assignment: Cut in half the cost of building V-6 engines for the company's Camry sedan by 2005. "We were thinking they were either crazy or didn't really mean it," says Robert Lloyd, 51, who, as president of Toyota's Bodine Aluminum Inc. unit, would be expected to deliver on Shiramizu's goal. Shiramizu had a secret weapon.

The worse the book, the better the screenplay." Not always. In 1998, at least, quite a few movies disproved the age-old Hollywood adage that there's many a slip between a great book and a great movie, an adage proved true over and over again, from "War and Peace" to "The Bonfire of the Vanities."

A CITIZEN KNOWN as Miss Little stood before the wife of the mayor of Baltimore yesterday morning and declared: "Excuse me, Judge Youronner, I already been to see a psychiatrist and I am not crazy." Not only not crazy, Miss Little insisted, but she was sound in every way. "I'm fine. I'm good. I'm excellent." Miss Little, accused of some never-mentioned minor offense, had just been called to present herself before Catherine Curran O'Malley, the judge assigned to the dubious judicial experiment called Early Disposition Court, a pet project of the mayor of Baltimore, in the basement of the old Sears on North Avenue.

CUMBERLAND - Leave it to others to debate whole language vs. phonics and the other academic arguments about the best way to teach children to read. Youngsters get only one message at the Western Maryland Reading Center. It's simple and direct: Reading is a good thing. Using a room in the Kingsley-Grace Mission Center in a working-class area of Cumberland, the center has welcomed a dozen or so children, ages 5 to 14, two afternoons a week during the school year. Some play games that help with word recognition.
