It's not easy being red. For decades, Santa Claus has anchored the Thanksgiving parade. A tough job, says the parade's longtime Santa, but somebody's got to do it for Baltimore's children. There's the sweltering wool costume. The grueling hours of ho-ho-ho-ing. The pointed questions from increasingly suspicious kids. And these days, there is also stiff competition. SpongeBob SquarePants, the ubiquitous cartoon character "who lives in a pineapple under the sea," served as the grand marshal in yesterday's 53rd annual parade on Pratt Street.

Media companies routinely play chicken in negotiations over such issues as retransmission fees and bundling, terms that mean next to nothing to their customers until one of the companies they subscribe to lets things get out of hand. Usually, that never happens. But it did at midnight Tuesday with DirecTV and Viacom, which resulted in the satellite TV provider's 20 million customers being without such Viacom-owned channels as Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, BET and VH1. In all, 17 channels were lost at midnight with shows that feature such performers as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, SpongeBob SquarePants and Snooki.

IT'S BEEN A rough winter for SpongeBob SquarePants. The cartoon sponge from Bikini Bottom was repudiated by Christian activist James Dobson for teaching tolerance to school-age children (in a video that might, possibly, indirectly and in a certain light, be construed as being against gay-bashing). His first movie, the creatively titled The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, got roughed up by critics. And, in a decision that really hits him in the underwater Pineapple, Kraft Foods announced recently it will gradually "shift the mix" of products the company markets to children under 12 between now and next year.

Once, it was your worst recurring nightmare: You went to school wearing only your intimate apparel. Today, that nightmare -- in a less risque form -- has come true. Pajamas, and often slippers, have become public attire. This time, nobody seems to notice. Those roomy, flannel pajama bottoms, sold by the gazillions at Old Navy, American Eagle and other youth-oriented retailers, are worn to dinner, class and the movies as nonchalantly as if they were jeans. Fredrica Newman, a Goucher College freshman, was recently spotted on campus heading to lunch while wearing a sweat shirt and SpongeBob SquarePants pajama bottoms from Target; the very same SpongeBob SquarePants pajama bottoms she wore to bed the night before.

WASHINGTON -- Granted, it is not the sexiest subject in the world, not the kind of thing that gets people het up enough to write letters to the editor. Yet there are few things more vitally important to understanding the world and our role in it. I'm talking about history and the teaching thereof. And if you keep rolling your eyes, your face is going to freeze like that. Not that I'm surprised. We are a historical people, a nation of short memories and cherished myths. For us, history doesn't matter -- right up until it does.

When a delicate genius such as Wilco's Jeff Tweedy composes a tune that makes the Banana Splits theme seem like a dirge and ranks among his best compositions, you know the kid inside him is alive and kicking. Pop music is really just kid stuff; to play it, to enjoy it, it's about keeping that little bugger inside you alive. And if it is, you can't not love The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie -- Music From the Movie and More ... -- a soundtrack for an animated movie about a talking sponge? Avril Lavigne's opening "SpongeBob SquarePants Theme" is a 45-second pop-metal sugar rush, out-sweetened only by German garage duo Electrocute's sassy "Bikini Bottom" and the Flaming Lips' sing-song-y "SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy."
